fab weekend

It's been a great couple of days:-)

The car finally passed the MOT (at some cost admittedly, but at least it passed).
My sister came to stay.
England won....! and X Factor was brilliant :-) Doesn't take much to make me happy, does it?

On Thursday sister sanna arrived and we had a lovely meal and catch up with her and her best friend Jenny. Friday we saw my Dad, and then went shopping. My dizzy sibling nearly got us arrested for shoplifting when she waltzed out of Primark behind me clutching her shopping bag... containg a pair of one pound fifty tights and some two quid glasses!! Honestly! She ran back in immediately, but we were giggling and carrying on so much we drew the attention of the security guard who then followed us upstairs and hovvered about until we'd selected some leopard print pj's, queued and paid!

We laughed all the way home... I mean fancy getting done for pinching in primark... the cheapest shop on the planet....oh the shame!

Later she insisted on taking us out for a meal so we went to town for dinner and drinkies.

And then yesterday she went home. I do miss her and wish she was nearer to me - even if she does get me into trouble!

Friday night's mojoholder welcomed 4 very talented ladies to the team:

Maria - who many of you will know from UKS and various Dt's and magazine work. I'm a huge fan of Ria's work which is always fresh and truly outstanding, and I love her to bits because she's such a nice girl too.

Paula - who many of you will know as minibook pixie. Paula is very very talented and another total sweetheart.

Jaimie - One of Australia's most talented scrappers - do check this girl out. She's just amazing... and she wants to play with us! Yay!

And Sheena - another super talented UKS'er who we are delighted to have on the team.

This week we lifted Martha Bonneau and this was my version:

Look at the little bunch of dandelions in Rubie's hand... awwww bless.

And I've made a couple of very quick halloween cards too.

I'm still enjoying the cardmaking and hope to get a cuttlebug for Christmas because I really want those embossing folders Bekka showed me. I also saw something I fancied on Paula's blog which is a scalloped card die - must ask her about that I think!

Wanna win some gorgeous blog candy? Look here!

Anyway - enough from me!

Off to craft now :-)

have a great day... jk xxx
