About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

Thank again to Julia for starting this phenomenon.

Mine looks a bit of a mess right now.
My stash from the weekend needs sorting.
These photo's are just a small taste of what I brought home. My mission today is to sort it all out. This is a mixture of cards made, prizes won, gifts generously given at the Card Camp with Rosemary. Souvenirs of a wonderful weekend
   Here is what I treated myself to at the weekend:) Well who wouldn't? Guests at the Card Camp had 10% discount at Crabapple and I also had four full loyalty cards so I got it at a great price. So guess who is a Very Happy Bunny. Now I am off for a nosey around some very very interesting desks via Julia:)

I am recovering this morning after a fab weekend at Card Camp with Rosemary Merry and her happy crew at the Forest Hills Hotel. From Friday afternoon through to 4pm yesterday it was fun all the way.

I met some lovely new friends, rekindled friendships from previous retreats and spent the whole time with the bestest friend in the world Trish. We made some wonderful cards, and canvas's, ate some delicious food and did so much laughing it was just a huge JOY.  I also treated myself to a new toy and I am sooooooo happy with it.

I have just gone to download the photo's to add some to my post and I cannot open them :( I will have to wait for my DH to get home tonight to sort things out for me.  I will try to post some of the photo's tomorrow.

I'm Late Again:(

Today I have been playing with some new stamps designed by my lovely friend Marie.
They are sold by Imagination Crafts and I think they are so cute.  They remind me of my granddaughters. 
I think they will enjoy playing and creating with them. I'm off for a mooch around other desks via Julia's blog.
