Gulp! Hitting 40!

When I saw those decades pass me by, it didn't bother me so much but when your Son & Heir hits 40 that's a reality check!  Now I know how my Mum and Dad felt when I hit the big "Four Oh" which to me  as a Senior, sounds incredibly YOUNG!!!!

Yes, our little boy - who's not so little turned 40 this week and if I close my eyes, I can still see him as a tiny tot, knee high to a grasshopper when he gave us palpitations having got separated from us and was momentarily lost in a HUGE shopping complex in Hong Kong called "Ocean Terminal"  - I have no idea whether it still exists.  Long story short, he was exerting his independence and refused to hold hands,  I thought he was with his Dad, and his Dad thought he was with me and when we caught up with each other, neither he nor I had our boy.  We died a thousand deaths frantically retracing our steps and calling out for him.  He had the good sense to tell one of the shop keepers he'd lost his Mum and Dad and you can imagine our relief when the tannoy  blared "Will the parents of a 3 year old boy in  Buster Brown yellow shorts and T-shirt please make yourself known at the information desk" ...........sigh, seems such a long, long time ago!

Here's the card I made him.

Celebrations Duo TIEF

For today's Fun Friday project we're looking at the Celebrations Duo TIEF, which debosses an image rather than raise it. These folders spell out the word "HAPPY" in upper case block capitals and "celebrate" in script so you cannot use the reverse side with the raised image because the word would read backwards.  It was designed to use as a debossed image only.  It's a really versatile set with phrases which you can mix and match to suit any occasion.  Enjoy the video!






Did you know if you clicked on the pictures below, it will take you to the item in my online store? Please note that the Avant Garden photopolymer stamp set is only available as a FREE item subject to a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration and is not a retail item.

Happy Sunday!

Feeling decidedly chilled today.  I'm an Archery "widow" most Sundays and inadvertently I end up in my craft room "doing" something - usually filming whilst I have the house to myself.  I decided I'd take a proper day off as I attended a Team meeting yesterday and these were the swaps I made.    I didn't  think I'd have time to make any last week, but having looked at my stash, I came up with this design which was pretty speedy and made 28 in less than 2 hours!



I've used the Avant Garden stamp set from Sale-a-bration and a new type of embossing folder which Stampin' Up! have introduced.  Intrigued?   I don't want to spoil that "tada" moment so pop back next Friday when all will be revealed on my YouTube regular Fun Friday slot!

Off to make myself a hot cuppa - I have a date with my kindle!  Oh how I've missed you!!!

Happy Sunday!

Fun Friday - Lift me Up Treat box

For this Friday's Fun project I took my inspiration from the picture in the Sale-a-bration brochure - so I gave it a go and tweaked it to make it my own.  What do you think?






Please be aware the "Carried Away" Designer Series paper is only available FREE as a Sale-a-bration choice subject to a qualifying purchase and cannot be purchased as a "stock" item.
