It's been a great weekend

What a great weekend... despite feeling a bit off colour, I've had a great weekend. I got a card made for Anne from our Family Group - for her 50th birthday. - this one was inspired by Quilterlin's card. 6 of us, including Anne, went out for a girls dinner last night. Had a lovely meal and then went round to Anne's for coffee. Very pleasant ( apart from coughing all the time)

In the afternoon, Emma and I went to the Dunkley's craft fair. It was quite an interesting exhibition... there were 4 stamp stalls which I gyrated to..... one being one of my local stores - Stampzone. I missed Kaye's demo but she was doing mini demos while I was there, showing off the new Buff Pearl embossing powders. I had a $25 loyalty voucher so am now the proud owner of 3 colours (violet, blue and green) plus a new butterfly stamp. I used them today to make a topper for a mini pizza box I made in silver. I am going it fill it with wrapped chocolates as a birthday gift. I had made the purple mini pizza box on Friday. The tutorial is on Splitcoast stampers site. It is such an easy box to do but is so cute.

While at the fair, I also bought a new cover for my ironing board.... supposed to make ironing easier ( yeah right as if anything could!) and some lovely munchy seeds... a combination of sunflower, sesame and pumpkin seeds roasted in a lovely savoury something... very yummy.

Today I had a lazy morning... got up late and pottered round in my dressing gown.... got a lovely suprise in the email.... I won one of the prizes in Tiffany's giveaway on her blog - see Here - wasn't I lucky. I really enjoy visiting Tiff's site as she has amazing creations and the most gorgeous son.... he is really a cutie. So was quite excited about that, when hubby announced we had visitors..... eak.... still in dressing gown!!!! It was our old next door neighbours.... they saw hubby cleaning his car, so stopped to say hi.... Never mind - blamed the cough saying I was still a bit sick!!!!

Well thanks for visiting. I'm off to get the vegies done for tea.... nice roast chicken with roast veggies and good old carrot and parnsip mash. Yummy
