Cheeky Vimto, Cheeky Smile - Happy 21st Ols xx
Had some Mum time with No1 son today for his 21st and lunch and a few cheeky vimtos at the Stag at Redhill before he headed off to celebrate with his friends. Great place and great food. 
While he was out me elf, the real Crafty Elf and H put up the Christmas Tree and decorations and ………….  Ta Da Christmas is all wrapped up with Birthday celebrations in our little old house tonight…………  

I'm now madly finishing off the last of my cards to get them in the post tomorrow, the last day for them to arrive in the UK before Christmas.   I've done lots of festive frocks this year, using Sandras Fabulous Festive Fashion stamp.  Here's a sneak peek of a couple of them;

  1. Morning Clare, Happy Birthday Ols, hope you had a fabulous one, lovely piccie. Your cards are lovely showcased here, I am using the Fabulous Christmas Fashion CD for cards for my Daughter and 2 Grand-daughters, I think they are stunning. I am really behind this year, I managed to make some simple ones for the friends at Linedancing for yesterday, I had previously made the 3 teachers some large cards using the Festive Christmas Fashion CD so everyone could sign them. I haven't even written out the ones that I post yet !! unfortunately they will have to be 'bought' ones as I haven't managed to make enough hahaha, like you, I will have to hurry up and do them today to post in time for Christmas !!
    Have a lovely day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  2. Hello sweet Clare! And huge happy birthday shoutout to Ols! Have a good and safe one! The cards are so cute. Like most everyone, I'm running out of time for the cards I want to make, too! The last of them should be done today and in the post. When did your number one son grow up so fast, huh! LOL Hope your internet is back up and running smooth again. Super big bear hugs to you from across the pond,
    Ruth Ann xoxo

    1. Hellloooo Ruth Ann, I know those years have gone so fast. Lots was going through my head when I asked him to smile so I could take his pic. He wasn' t really impressed but he did do it for his mummy :-). Am writing bought cards as we speak and guess what, after 6 days of no service is an absolute marvel. Bought cards are being sent out this end as well as the few hand made ones. Vids are now uploading. Links will be with you shortly :-) xxx Hugs from little old England.

  3. Good morning Clare, Do hope a great time was had by all at No.1 son's 21st party and that he has recovered well! We here in Laughton-en-le-Morthen (South Yorkshire) are, like thousands of others, recovering from the gale force winds and horrendous rain/hail storm that we had last night. Am pleased to say that we didn't suffer any structural damage to the house (that we can see anyway), although at one point we thought the roof of the conservatory might disappear! Pleased to say it held fast so we just have some general tidying up to do in the gardens. Love the cards you've posted and like you (and one or two other cardmakers I know) I too opted to buy a few to save time this year. Thanks for sharing these with us and hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
    Margaret A.

  4. Cheeky cute that is what I say - he is a doll!! Love your cards and wouldn't that make a fabulous Christmas party dress!
    Merry Christmas!

Happy Friday everyone
If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!   
I cant deny I'm not pleased its the weekend and I've got time to re charge my batteries before attempting another 5 days on the trot :-) 

As I've just joined the IndigoBlu team official this week I thought I'd share a couple of tags with you made with stamps from the  Pomp and Pageantry and Grand Tour 1 plates and the ledger background which I really love. 

Tag 1
The first tag was inked lightly all over wi…
