The wonderful Wizard of Oz

Hi all,
I hope you had a lovely weekend and a great start to the week.  Yesterday was Daisy's sports day, and she was so excited as it was her first.  Last year, when she was in the reception class, the sports day was rained off a few times and was eventually cancelled.  Daisy got to do javelin, long jump, shot put, discus and a running race.  She thoroughly enjoyed it and I loved watching her too.
Over at Incy Wincy, we have a tic tac toe board for you.  We are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and I used one of their pre coloured images as I still don't have any mojo. 
See you later.

Pieces of eight

Hi all,
I hope your week is going well.  I had the second part of the interview today and unfortunately didn't get the job.  I suffer badly from nerves and they definitely got the better of me, although I know the job inside out and back to front.  It now means that I am re-evaluating things and what to do with my life as I need to do something about interview nerves, or do something that doesn't need an interview.  I am quite upset at the moment as it's a school that I have done a lot of supply in and they still want me to supply (which I'm not going to do).  All of this means my mojo has disappeared so I am sorry if there isn't an awful lot on here at times.
Sorry for the moan, but now onto other things.  Over at Incy Wincy, we would like you to make a pocket card.  I have used a fab pirate image by Pink Gem and the pocket on the inside should hold gold coins, but I forgot to buy some.  (Silly me).
See you later.

I'm so late it's nearly Christmas!

Hi all,
I really don't know who stole last week.  It completely flew by.  I had the teaching part of an interview last Friday, so spent as much time as I could preparing for that, as well as doing supply work, my youth work (craft and drama clubs) and looking after the girls, that I had no time to craft or blog.  Sorry for neglecting you.  I have been asked back for the formal interview part this week, so I may not be around too much this week either.
We went to a local beer festival on Saturday, which was great, although I was most put out that they had run out of chips at 9pm!  All I wanted was a chip butty!
I am very late posting this card for CRAFT challenge.  This week we have Christmas as our theme.  We are doing this every month to help you get ready for all those cards you may need to send out.  I have used a fab image by Bugaboo stamps and the papers are by Nitwits.
See you later.

Hi all,

I have finally found a bit of time today to do some DT cards.  My time seems to be running away from me at the moment, so I am sorry if I haven't visited you for a while, but I will do so soon.
Over at Creative Craft, our theme is We love you, Dad, because it is Father's day here this Sunday.  We are sponsored by Kenny K and I have used one of his fab images.  I still don't have my guillotine back, so don't look too closely at the edges of the paper!

I know this is a bit of a novelty, but I have decided to enter some challenges as there are quite a few male themed ones at the moment.

Here come the boys - add ribbon
Simon say stamp - masculine/father's day
Crafts 4 eternity - For the boys
Papertake Weekly - Hello Boys
LEJ Designs - Something for the boys/men

See you later.

Higher, higher

Hi all,
I hope you had a lovely weekend.  It was quite sunny here and we spent Sunday at Morpeth street fair.  The girls enjoyed going on lots of rides and eating fair food!
Over at Incy Wincy this week, our theme is butterflies and bows, and I have used Summer swing by one of our sponsors, Saturated Canary.  I went for a shaped card, as I loaned my guillotine to a friend and haven't got it back yet, so straight edges are a bit difficult to do.  The back paper has butterflies on it, but if you look closely you will see they are flying upside down!  Ooops!
See you later.

Tweet, tweet

Hi all,
Well, the weather has been lovely all day here.  It was wonderful at the weekend too.  The girls went to a birthday party on Saturday and there was a magician there.  It was lovely to see all the faces of the children whenever the magician did a trick.   I have been doing all the housework jobs today as I have work tomorrow.  I do hope the weather stays nice.
Over at Incy Wincy, our theme is Spring.  I have used an image from Doodle Pantry, one of our sponsors.  I'm really not sure about this card - I'm going through a phase of disliking everything I make at the moment.
See you later.
