WOYWW 105.........not a lot.......

......on my desk. BUT the school reunion went brilliantly and I had a great time with my friends. We certainly burned the candle at both ends, and in the middle too I think! We have rellies arriving here again today for a few days on their way back to Germany so crafting is having to take a back seat. Maybe this will tell you a bit of the story about the crazy weekend though:

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 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.

Elegant looking card, simple is best sometimes. Glad the reunion went OK. Net briefly working, but won't be holding my breath for long!

Hi Di!

Sounds like you had a fab time at the reunion - speaking of which Mr B went to Hamm, so not the same school unfortunately. Would've been funny if it was though, eh? LOL

Thanks for stopping by!

Reunions can be such fun. I meet up every year with my three best friends from school (and their husbands) and we all have a lovely meal together, taking turns at each other's houses. There is a lot of chatting, reminiscing, and generally putting the world to rights. Glad your meeting went so well.

So happy all went well for you and you are safely home again. Love your card and that sentiment is a hoot! Have fun with the little ones!

Your reunion sounds like it was such fun. I have a reunion to attend in July, as well, and am really looking forward to it. The stamp on the card you featured is super-cute! Happy WOYWW!
