Use Some Old Stash with Sweet Stampin

Hi all you fabulous peeps! it's time for our weekly 'just for fun' challenge at Sweet Stampin  and the theme is 'Use Some Old Stash' ...so I have used this cute little Penny Black stamp that I bought oodles and oodles ago when I first starting crafting. So pop over and join in and you never know what hidden gems you might find in your 'old stash'
Well phewwwwww hasn't it been scorching!!!!! the 'boy's have been out bright and early when it was cooler and only for a short walk ..no running involved at all and then back home. They have both been cooling down and splashing around in their paddling pool LOL and we bought them some cooling mats so they have loved them. The hubster has to put on the highest factor sun cream because one of his heart tablets make his skin turn blue if he doesn't but he has been relaxing because it's been too hot to do anything. I got in the car yesterday and oh boy did that air conditioning get shot on straight away!!! I went to the garden centre and bought some more plants....so I think that's it now  I can't wait till they all flower. Anyway we are expecting rain and storms later on we have had a weather warning of flash flooding but at the moment it's hot!!! so I'm going to chill and do some crocheting. Take care everyone and lots of huggles Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sunny Sunday!

Hi everyone! Well it's been a really lovely day here the sun has been glorious! Had a nice walk out with 'the boys' down the beach and of course the little monster Woody had to go for a dip in the sea..he can smell water miles away LOL Ollie takes things at a slower pace now he just walks around sniffing everywhere and lets Woody run for the ball because he can't be bothered. The seafront was totally packed everyone was out enjoying the sun but I think according to the weather forecast tomorrow is a bit colder ...so hope it's wrong! I made this card at my crafty club it's one of the LOTV printed images ..I really love these they are so quick and easy to use to make up a card. I have to say thanks to my lovely friend Soupie (as Darnell calls her) for sending me an LOTV rubber stamp that she had bought two of! We are meeting up again at Doncaster I'm so excited (not sure Doncaster is though Lol) Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post and also to my new follower :))) Take care you wonderful peeps and lots of hugglesssssssssss Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxx
