I have had a really good day today. I got myself organised this morning before going to scrapbook class /crop at RWS. Well yes I did forget to pick up the sketch prints, just a small mishap. When I was there last Saturday I was impressed when Jane came to crop and had all the items she was going to use with her and had a good idea what she was going to do. So I decided that I would try hard to be organised and at least have an idea what I wanted to do. Well that's this week I'll see what happens next week. I will put some photo's on tomorrow when I get the light. Enjoyed being back at class today it is a month since we have been together and slightly more chat went on than scrapping as we had a lot of catching up to do. Lynda xx

magnolia challenge

Love this stamp and enjoyed making this card. I have used this card for the friday skechers challenge and then realised I could have used the same card for the Magnolia challenge. So here it is slightly altered to a thank you card.

Mojo back

I'm sorry it has been a while since I last blogged but work and activities in the evening have kept me busy. Just getting back to normal this weeek. Returning to some kind of normality and getting my Mojo back has been task and a half. Anyway all that said I have done a few things and today I have managed to get some photographs done while it was light.
I have completed Helena's challenge to alter the Bauble
This Rudolph who looked lovely on my tree this year.

As I have said before I have a group of friends and for the last 4 years we get together on a Friday evening and craft well besides having a drink and a Chinese. Some weeks we never get a card completed some weeks we get to tipsy to make a card but this week we made a nice card.

To cheer myself up this week I ordered a couple of Magnolia stamps I have been playing with them this weekend. Thought I would use them for the Friday sketchers challenge so working on that one but I have completed this one.

Love these stamps.

Thanks for looking in.

Just thought I would show you a couple of photos of my dog Tilly having fun in the snow she loved eating it too. She couldn't walk as she had so much snow stuck to her little legs. Bless her
This is Lynsey having to carry her back from her walk.
Tomorrow is my first day back at work. In a funny sort of way I'm looking forward to it. I cant get myself motivated to do carafting. I have enjoyed the Christmas break I was ready for it, batteries are recharged and I'm ready to rumble.
Looking forward now to our cruise in April around the Caribbean we pick the ship up in Jamaica I am so looking forward to it but could really do with losing a few pounds first. I always think the looking forward to a holiday is part of the fun.

Well here it is 2010. Can you beleive it's here I would love to wish all my crafting friends a very happy and prosperous 2010 I wish you all you wish for yourselves. As you can see from the photos above we had a great night, spent with family and friends at the golf club party, what a great night we had. Might have some more good photos as I'm having my regular new year party on Saturday and who says I'm not a party girl!!!!!!!!
I have decided not to make any new year resolutions as I always seem to break them so I have decided that I will say I hope I can do a few things to improve my health. I have promised myself to do the Friday sketchers each week. I'm so ready to get back into my craft room. Bye for now promise to keep my blog updated.
