Rope Swing


Whoohoo.. We’re back and we’ve had a Whale of a time!!

It’s just the best catching up and we even got some crafting done!! (OMG!)

Caz has just been the bestest and apart from the stamp, ink and tule, everything was her stash!!   Thanks hunnie!!

The Tule is seriously lush and the flower… well.. let’s say that I have to have them now.. so they are on my ‘to get tomorrow’ list.

Knew it wasn’t going to be an early night.. but when I seen the clock hit 2.40 am [!!] I was a bit shocked.. hehe!

As ever the time went just way too quick and can already not wait till our next visit 🙂  and David.. thanks again for all those  ‘toppa teas’!!

I doubt there is going to be much on my blog in way of cards and projects from now until the new year .. but then again..  I might surprise myself.

Hope you are having a fabulous evening wherever you are, I’ve just watched Lisa’s Argentine Tango.. great! but am still rooting for Rachel.. and cannot wait to watch the final of xfactor… got everything crossed for Alexandra..

All in all a fab evening in front of the telly 🙂

Hugs, Marlene x

    Oooo I’m between strictly shows too. poor kids are being bathed in stages (during the talkie bits) Hmmmm i think they got a little too wrinkly tonight! I’m rooting for R&V too!!! Come On!!
    Another great card too. I was dithering about this stamp… looks like I’m gonna have to buy it now.
    Have fun infront of the telly…that’s what Saturday nights during the winter were made for.

    Beautiful card!

    We’re having a lazy evening. Home made hotdogs with spelt bread and M & S sausages with mustard mayo and onions SLURP! Eaten from lap traps while watching Dad’s Army and flicking through the latest of my craft magazine, bought earlier.

    Wish I had a pusscat nearby to make it snuggly perfect 🙂

    Gorgeous card!

    Love your image and those papers and that flower with your tulle just scrumptous!

    Well controversial ending with strictly but thrilled with x factor!

  • Erica

    Lovely card, as usual Marlene 😉 I thought the “everyone is in the final” on SCD was a bit strange…seems silly to carry over the phone votes as well, bet there’s some disgruntled people! Lucky for Tom and Camilla though, not their finest hour (why oh why did they do *that* jive again?!) and now they have another shot at it. Next Saturday should be good 😀
