Final Week Reminder........

Hello everyone
As you are reading this I will be on holiday in Lake Garda with John, Lewis and Eleanor - it was a last minute decision but I needed to know that my Dad was okay and that he wouldn't be having the operation to remove the tumour from his liver......as of yet it still hasn't been booked.
 He had a PET scan on Thursday but was assured nothing would happen this week.
My final card for the Ladybugcraftsink
is not Billie Bunting - LOL !!!
I have used one of my favourite 'Floral Delight' images -
Ladybug Garden Delights which is an absolute delight to colour in too.

I hope you are all organised for your little peeps returning to school next week - and that you are looking forward to getting back to 'normal'
The only thing I'm looking forward to is getting back to crafting properly - other than that I am not looking forward to them starting again.
Anyway must go and re-apply my sun cream (at least that is what I hope I will be doing !!)

Week 3 Colour Challenge

Morning everyone....
Had a busy day yesterday - got up early and caught the train to London for a girlie treat - Eleanor and I went with Anne and Isabelle, my friend and her daughter. We went on the train - shopped until we dropped - had lunch at Covent Gardens - shopped again and then caught the train home.....it was fabulicious !!
Today is the third week at Ladybugcraftsink

I am slowly running out of papers that match this colour combination -  today I have used another Stampin' Up paper and guess what - coloured Billie Bunting in blue !!!
Cute isn't he ???

Martini Nikki.....

My friend who emigrated to Australia in 2009 came home to visit a couple of weeks ago - we had a lovely catch up and made me realise how much I missed her.
It will be her birthday this month so I made her a card to take home with her.......
How gorgeous is this digital stamp - Martini Nikki
it reminds me of Jo so much.....

Just a quick one tonight - am up early in the morning taking Eleanor to London shopping !!
Hope you've all had a good weekend

Well - you never guess what ?!?!

..... hello everyone !!
What a week I have had - Lewis has been at a cricket course this week - he has been on it for the past 3 years - last year he broke his finger which was the excitement of the week BUT nothing beats what happened this week !!
Andrew Flintoff's sons were on the same course - and yes Andrew visited each and every day and helped with the course - Lewis was thrilled (and so was I !!!) but that's not the end of the excitement - on Wednesday when I went to collect Lewis, Andrew was searching in  his bag for something, so casually after asking for a photograph, I asked him had he lost something - yes he had - his wedding ring !! After searching high low and level on the cricket field for nearly 40 minutes - along with the coaches, 3 mums and about 8 children - I asked Andrew if we could look in his bag !!! - and he said 'Feel free !!'  - and yes there it was at the bottom of his bag - the coaches had 'searched' the bag countless times - he was thrilled and to be honest I felt quite good too !!!!

A photo collage including Flintoff looking in his bag for his ring !!!!

Now onto my card .......
using a gorgeous Ladybug crafts Nikki digi stamp  coloured in with Promarkers

Week 2 Colour Challenge.....

Three weeks of the summer holidays already gone - I can already feel the butterflies in my stomach anticipating the new school year.......sorry not like most Mums - I'd much rather have mine here at home with me.
We spent a couple of days in Anglesey last week - catching up on family life - sometimes I forget what it's like with John away so much.....we had a fantabulous time just wish we had stayed longer.
Anyway on to my card for week 2 of the
I used the same digital image as last week but coloured Billie in pink.
The papers are brand new from Stampin' Up - super cute and ideal for this challenge.

Colour Challenge

Hello to you all !!!
I had an amazing weekend I went to the Edinburgh Tattoo with my special friend Jane
- we laughed so much and the Tattoo was amazing.
BUT you never guess who I 'bumped' into..............
our very own and bestest Queen Ladybug Kerry- we had a lovely lunch, fantabulous chat and was gutted when time went by so quickly.....can't wait until next time.
Onto our new exciting colour challenge at LCI this month
 -  do check to see if you are one of our lucky winners of our 'Birthdays' challenge.
When I saw the colours I didn't know where to begin but then spotted this paper in my digital paper file and knew it would be perfect ;0)
I have used 'Billie Bunting' which is available in the LCI store
I love this image which I think you could use for any age.

Thank you for stopping by and please do go and give my Ladybug friends some love.

Campervan mania...

Everyone seems to want camper vans at the moment - when we went to the wedding on Saturday I was surprised to see that Simon & Lucy were too very fond of them. I have to admit when we came out of the church it was a lovely sight to see for a change.
My card today is for Eleanor's BFF who has had a passion for camper vans since she was tiny.
Our very own Ladybug Lisa's daughter has a blog where you can purchase digital images of camper vans in all shapes and sizes.
I have used Squidgy Digi Female Camper van digital image and coloured with my Promarkers - how cute is it ??
