What a weekend !

Hello bloggers, well what a weekend i have had !! glorious sunshine amazing airshow and a bargin sewing machine.

If you didn't know it was the Bournemouth Air Festival at the weekend and my god it was amazing, it started on the thursday and ran till sunday, not being into planes and stuff i thought i would go along and just be bored but i have to say it was so good i was whooping an cheering on the beach lol on the saturday it was reported 350,000 people where there. the red arrows topped it all off and the stunning giant the vulcan ! here are a couple of pics -
If anyone has ever heard the roar of the vulcans engines you will now it rattles your windows and you can feel it in your chest it's so loud .......however oliver managed to sleep thought its flight lol bless him...... however when the euro fighter did it's bit he soon woke bless him what a shock for him ! think its the loudest plane i have ever heard almost needed eardefenders .
I also got a bargin from our local bootsale on sunday a toyota sewing machine 2640 for £5 with needles etc I'm so excited as i'm dying to make some curtains etc and a quilt.

Hello all! gosh i have been a lazy blogger recently ... i just keep forgetting to photograph my cards before i give them away Doh!!! anyway here's one to view -
1- This is my first christmas card i cased it from the front cover of creativity mag (do crafts) made a few changes .... think I went a little OTT with the distressing lol, the first time i have used it really def less is more ... lesson learnt . Also found that the papermania clear stamps i used would only give a nice clear impression when i used versa fine ink ... i only own black ! they beaded up all the other inks i tried.
6x12 white card - scored
6x6 home for christmas papers x3
Joyeux Noel clear stamps - single tree (love these so detailed ! yet affordable)
