The next card is for my sister to give to some friends of theirs who got married a few weeks ago in Las Vegas

Finally here are a few really quick and simple Fathers Day cards, all are using the new Papermania papers and the Cheers to You stamp and card blanks from CWC as before. I have added Liquid Pearls to the beer so it looks more realistic. Sorry about the photos they are quite shocking as you cannot even read the sentiments, they do say Happy Fathers Day!!
Forgot to say before the Beer mug is coloured in using my new Stampin Up marker pens in Apricot Appeal and Barely Banana, I have gone round the edge with Bashful Blue to highlight the image (a little tip I got from the crazy Monica!!!)

Its a Digital SLR. More technical than I have used before but I am going to try and learn how to use it properly.
Just got it today and charged it up and downloaded software to my laptop so thought I would take a picture of a couple of cards.
Also had a trip to the park with my youngest so I took my camera with us and made him do lots of poses!!!!

Had my Stampin Up party last Thursday which was fabbo!! Want to say a huge thank you to the fab Monica who was our demonstrator and to all my guests who spent to generously so I could get some fabby goodies!!!!!
Monica made me this lovely tin with lots on ribbon and flowers in and also a decorated inkpad as a thank you for having the workshop. I have to say it did come wrapped beautifully but I was too eager to open if before I had chance to take a photo
All the goodies were delivered today so will be posting piccies of new cards soon.

My son Ross (who is nearly 9) played his first real cricket match yesterday for the team that my Dad, myself and my husband have all played for.
Cricket has been a big part of my life, nearly all my childhood was spent accompanying my Dad to various cricket matches, I LOVED it, I also played and was quite a tom boy, was like the son he never had!!!!!
Well yesterday was the moment I am sure my Dad has been looking forward to ever since Ross was born. My Mum and Dad put a birth announcement in the local paper on the week he was born and that even had a little cricketer on it!!!!
So my boy was up with the birds yesterday morning, he had his cricket whites on by 8.30 and did not need to be there until 9.30!!!!
He took it all in his stride, I was so nervous for him!!! Anyway his team won and he had a fab time, he bowled quite well but best of all he batted really well and even whacked two 4's!!!!!!
Can't wait for next week my cricket star!!!
