Fairymoon Crafts Challenge 16

This week there isn't a Magnolia in sight on this card. I have done something I have never done before. And really enjoyed it.
On the 8th may, myself and 2 other DT's are doing a demo day at fairymoon crafts shop. So I have also spent some time getting a few bits ready for that. I am looking forward to it, but at the same time nervous as I have never done anything like this before.
Anyway my card for this week followed the weekly sketch and also combined it with a colour combo of Red/White/Yellow.

Used the red card as a Base colour, I then stamped a piece of white card with a flourishes stamp using yellow from colorbox,then lightly blended the background with the same colour. Cut into 9 equal squares and layered onto white card. layered this onto the red, and finished of with a nestibilities rectangle stamped with best wishes,and yellow bow.

Brazzil red card,
Flourishes clear stamp
Colorbox cats eyes fluid chalk
Nestibilities Rectangle
Sentiment stamp is one I have had from day dot

She has been accepted there to. So now she cant wait to get started.And we are over the moon for her.
Got back about 5ish and she cooked 6 of us streak with all the trimmings and it was yummyyyyyyyy. We have got Mississippi mud pie for pudding, but I just cant fit that in at the mo.

I can not believe I am going to be 40 next month.
Kids no longer independent on me, and my youngest is doing GCSE's this year. no more parents evenings.
It was bad enough when they left primary school as you lose contact with lots of people.
Anyway I have decided as its my 40th I would give some blog candy.
I am going to have a party with close family and friends, nothing to big.just a shame that my darling dad wont be there to have a drink with me. but know he will be there in spirit and watch us all making fools of ourselves after one to many drinks.

All you have to do to enter this candy is spread the word by posting on your blog/sidebar about my candy, and leave your details on Mr linky.Oh and become a follower of my blog too.( Abit late entering this bit as I forgot to add it )

And I will post winner sometime on 8th April my Birthday.

Good Luck

Busy Busy

Well I have woke this morning to it pouring done outside.The Dog wont even go out.
Up nice an early as tonight I am having my 40th party. And need to pop to tescos to get last bits, you know the last bits that you cant get until the day.
So plans are to go there just after 8, before it gets to busy, drop my daughter at work afterwards. Come home and get stuck in to sorting buffet.Not doing anything special as most peeps would have eaten. Lunch time go and pick up helium balloons and keys for village hall, then I am going to get that set up, come home and hopefully relax for a couple of hours, have a nice soak in bath etc etc. Then its Party party party. So looking forward to having my family together, as we haven't all been together since last January when I lost my dad. Who I wish was going to be with us tonight. I shall have a cpl of drinks for him, but I know he will will there in spirit.
Right better go and give daughter another shout, she don't seem to be in any hurry this morning.
Happy Easter everyone.
