I'm back!

I'm sorry I've been missing this past fortnight, but things have been hectic recently! First there was the annual Holiday Club at Church: the theme was Pirates, and the Church was decorated with skull-and-crossbones banners, balloons and bunting! The children all shouted 'ARR-men!' at the end of prayers, in a Pirate voice. It was great fun, but quite knackering, so afterwards I went to Derby to stay with my Dad.

Now, normally my brother, who lives nearby, kindly gives me a lift to the station when I go home. This time my Sister-in-law was using the car, so I got a lift on their tandem! My SiL has a custom-built saddle (very swish!) but her behind is definitely slimmer than mine, and I woke the next morning with a numb bum!!

I've been busy making thank you cards for the organisers of the Holiday Club, using Pirate Edwin and Tilda. Here's Edwin:

The paper is from The Creative Cottage which I got from Pollycraft

And here's Tilda:

Her background paper is from an old craft mag. I made 4 of each of these!

I used Nesties for the circles and the tag and also a new Marianne flourish die from Craftsulove. Gems and ribbons are from stash.

I'm sorry, but I've lost my notes on the Promarkers I used (my room is a tip!)

Now I must go and tidy so that I can see my desk again, and then I have an engagement card to make!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
