Got some other things need doing tonight too as they need to go in the post tomorrow.
I'm also signing off now, as this is the 2nd time I've typed this. I started to put labels on the post and somehow managed to delete everything in the post, so I'm quitting while I'm ahead.

After all that I treated myself to a spot of crafting. Made some of my swaps for the Stampin' Up! field training that I'm going to on Friday. It's my first training with them and I'm very excited about it!
I had to clear all my stuff off the dining room table so it's currently sitting in the washing basket until I unpack it all again and get on with some more later.
I promised the other card I made for my Aunt and here it is. This is the second time I stamped and coloured the wee baby, didn't like it the first time so I started again. This is definitely my favourite of the two cards I made.

came up with this! I used one of the precoloured squares from LoTV. I actually love the way the wee card turned out and it's much better (at least I think so) than the ones I saw for £2.49 in the shop.
Anyway, the boys were shipped off to the party and I asked DH if we had any plans while they were away. I was thinking maybe we could get in and gut the spare room. He had a slightly panicked look on his face when I asked and I realised he wanted to watch the rugby so I said "oh, that's ok, can I go and craft".....
So, kids were at a party, DH watched the rugby and I crafted. What could be better?! Got quite a lot done but I shall share the pictures through the week - just in case the spurt of creativity doesn't last ;)
DH has BFF's DH round on a "play date" (beer) tonight so I have come to bed with the laptop and my book.

So, in the absence of any crafting photos, here's one of my youngest boy Scott at the recent Anchor Boy fun day with his face painted as a lion! It was painted by one of our other officers, Graeme, who you can just see sitting on the edge of the photo - he's Scott's favourite. I feel I should be slightly aggrieved at this given that I'm also an officer and I'm not his favourite, lol. Apparently it's because "me and Graeme are really good at sports" (Scott's words not mine!!)
Hopefully, some crafting tomorrow, if I'm not too tired after my day's adventure.

This second card is the promised Valentine's card I made for DH. Got the idea for it from the LotV Ideas for Inspiration blog. I used the Sugar Nellie Sent with Love stamp ( think that's whats she's called). The I (heart) you is done using Stampin' Up! School Book Serif alpha and the I (heart) Hearts set. Sandra had also seen this card on the LotV blog and thought she'd use it as an idea for my birthday card...... Ooops!

This is the card for a friend's husband's birthday which is today. We're all going up to their house later so I'm hoping she's not blog hopping this afternoon - otherwise it won't be much of a surprise! I've used the Stampin' Up Punch Bunch SAB set (just finished) for the greeting, paper and card from stash and I'd be lying if I said I could remember what it was. Quite pleased with it. I hope the recipient likes it too.
I'm going off now to try and tidy up the dining room table so that I have a blank canvas for starting to craft later. I may be away for some time so if I don't appear back send chocolate!!!!

Been at a Parent Council meeting tonight and was told I look tired. Clearly I need to break out the Touche Eclat!! So, I'm now wondering whether to do some crafting or go to bed. There have been too many nights off recently hence my lack of crafting!
Even if I don't craft tonight I can always take a pic of the aforementioned valentine card and post that tomorrow.....

Morning. I suppose I could have gone the other way and that I could have made the cake big and the sentiment small.... but it worked for ...
Morning all. It's time for a new challenge at Christmas At Sweet Stampin' . Our theme this month is Anything Christmas Goes ...
Morning. Today's card is a card for Cass (of Crafty Cabin fame) and her husband who celebrated their silver wedding when we were away...
