Delicious Doodles

It's all about Summertime this week at Delicious Doodles and for my card I used the pretty Rosalee image from Teri and used the Spring Has Sprung download from  Funky Hand
Sick printer is in the shop getting looked at but won't have time tomorrow to get it- that's if they can fix it- they shut before I finish work so I will be printerless until Saturday morning so fingers crossed they are able to fix it for me.
Have a lovely day

Charisma Cardz- Make Your Own embellies

This week the challenge at Charisma Cardz is to make your own embellies
I used some basic grey papers I had lying about and kraft card, used one of my new dies for the corner pieces and rolled up a couple of flowers and made the other two using a circle punch.

Hope you can join in as we have fab sponsors again this week
Been another lovely week of weather apart from the downpour and thunder on Tuesday- wonder how long this will last, really not Scottish weather !
Having printer problems and going to take it today after work to see if my lovely wee print shop can find out what is wrong with it- fingers crossed- I am lost without it and hope I don't need to buy a new one as it really isn't very old at all
Have a lovely day

Michael Buble and London

No card from me today just a whole load of photos and waffle about my fabulous trip to London to see Michael Buble at the 02 Arena

We were staying at the Royal Docklands which is only about a mile or so from London City Airport and this first photo is of the cable cars that took you directly to the 02 

The next one of me is only there as you can hardly see me- probably making a face or have my eyes shut but am so far away you can't tell !!! This was right behind the hotel we stayed in

We did the open top tour bus of London and it took nearly three hours but it was fab and the weather was so hot it was nice just to sit there and get the breeze now and again

St Paul's Cathedral from the bus

The London Eye

A boat on the Thames taken from the boat we were on- the first boat we went on went on fire and we had to turn back and get off and wait for another, but yes I can London has some hunky looking firemen

on the boat approaching our pier at the Tower of London
The next lot were taken with my mobile so might not be too great
Approaching the 02 in the cable car

 Mr Buble on the stage

A photo of a fraction of the crowd in the 02

Couldn't believe what excellent seats we had, he was sooo close and yes he is even more handsome in the flesh and his voice was just awesome.
He opened his show with fire and he slid down a ramp on the stage as the curtains were opening upwards , singing Fever and boy did I have a fever....

There was also red and white love hearts dropped from above and a bit of the stage that lifted him high up with accompanying fireworks
He sang for almost two hours and it was just spectacular and the show closed with him taking away the mic and singing the last half of the song without a mic and it was just lovely... ah swoon...
Had a fantastic weekend and the weather was in the 90's, so back home now feet feeling sore and tired but it was a weekend never to forget

Delicious Doodles

The challenge this week at Delicious Doodles is to create a scene and for my card I used the Gravestone Scene , Ghost and Gargoyle Frame from Teri with a  BOO sentiment and some black distress ink- getting a start early for Halloween.
Finished up now for a week holidays so plan to get ahead with some makes and do some dreaded housework and gardening and before I know it I bet the week has flew in.
Have a great weekend and hope you can join in the challenge this week

Charisma Cardz

This week the challenge at Charisma Cardz  is NO DESIGNER PAPER
I decided to create my own background with a large script stamp mounted on kraft card, added a ribbon with a  flower, some fibres, pin and butterfly.
Looking forward to visiting to see what you have created.
Am I the only person that is finding this lovely weather just too hot !Too hot to work and the uniform I have to wear is like a boil in the bag suit, managed to cut my front grass last night but was soo hot and tired after that I just couldn't do the back grass, that will have to wait for a cooler night!
Have a great day
