My best pal Moira from schooldays on the left and me on the right (although my eyes are only red from the flash not being on red-eye, I promise!). The theme was Robin Hood, 'cos the event took place in Nottingham, which might explain the silly hats. And no, Moira does not have a white beauty spot - the table had lots of sparkle sprinkled over it and we kinda glammed ourselves up with it in a few silly moments so I suspect that's some light bouncing back!! I know we're so all very tired from too little sleep, too much talking and a lot of walking and dancing......I did NOT mention too much wine, OK girls!! We three, Angie (behind the camera), Moira and I had a brilliant time - I couldn't wish for better friends and I bless each day we have together as we do live a long way apart. And another friend from those days spent a couple of days with us too - Caroline. We original three are old hands at reunions (one Scottish chap who went to school at the same time refers to us as the 'Three Wee Witches') but Caroline is getting into the swing of things without any trouble. It's amazing how the years just roll back.
BUT, my desk has not been TOTALLY bare. It's tidy now ready for Len to move his organ in there while the visitors are here.....and no smutty comments please :) but I found time to make a few thank you cards yesterday evening for my girlie friends who made the weekend just so great:
I love this stamp set - it's called 'Out of Bed' and is from the Born to Shop range. Coloured with Pro Markers and layered onto a bigger Labels Eight Nestie which I'd coloured round with Meadow Green to match some of the image. Great tip that (which I picked up elsewhere) as you can always make a swift backing even when you don't have any of the right coloured card. Then, just a couple of sparkly gems in the flowers, backing paper is from a Trimcraft pad called 'Sweet Owl', some card candy and a single flower with a green brad in the centre. Done! I just love the sentiment too :)
Right, time to do a quick tidy round before the little ones arrive - swift moving of as many things with buttons to press as posssible :)) Have a great WOYWW everyone, sorry I'm not likely to do much hopping around blogs....I'll be too busy hopping around with two little girls I expect!! Eeek, I almost forgot - do go to Julia's to see what eveyone else is up to.....and the chocolate mints went down a treat - they didn't melt on the drive up to Nottingham thankfully.
PS And another thing..........my PiF gift is still here, although it was finished in time, due to absence on other 'duties' - but I hope to post it tomorrow at latest to Dolores (Cardarian) in Slovenia. Thankfully she was most understanding when I just didn't have a free moment to post it off last week.
