21 June 2013


WOW! I can't believe its nearly a week since I last posted anything....so not like me! I have had a few days rest, doing nothing but watch movies & sleep. Thankfully our Danni has now finished school until September when she goes to collage so she's been keeping me company! 
I'm not sure what was the matter, but I think it was a combination of my M.E. being a b**ger & me getting stressed out last weekend with Nige being away! Yeah I'm daft but I did miss him like mad & after he said he'd hurt his back I just wanted to look after him! 
Yeah even after nearly 18yrs together I miss him like mad....how sad am I? LOLOL!!!

Anyhoos, today's card has been made using a new release from The Stamping Chef! Which if you purchase it over the weekend you will get a 20% discount.....you also get 3 fab digi papers & a pre coloured version of the image, for those quick cards!

I haven't finished it yet because my printer is playing up! But the text on the front says.....Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane? Then the middle bit says 'KAPOW!' which when flicked around will have a picture of me & Nige on.....but I'm going to put the same papers on the back. But the text will say 'No It's Nige My Very Own Superhero!' 
I just wanted him to know that I am so proud that he managed to do 
'Ben Nevis' in under the 5 hours!

Shell this is really good, love how the spinning bit came out and the colours are perfect. I showed Jessica and she loved it too. She wants a blog now and even made a card for this weeks challenge, I just need to photograph it tomorrow for her.
