Scrapping and some cards too

Well it is the last day of my holidays here so I have been tidying up, doing some cooking and am now vegging before starting the dinner, bath and dishes run around.
We went of roller skating yesterday. Well Craig and Asher did. I am so not a skater, never was. Asher was fine for about the first 30 mins or so, went round the rink with out letting go of the rail one. But then wouldn't go back on after she had done one lap. Started crying and made herself very upset. I think the whole experience was just too much to take in all at once for her. She was a scared of falling over, add to that the loud music, the disco lights and all the others whizzing past her on the rink she had a megga melt down. I couldn't do anything with her. She didn't want her skates taken of, didn't want a cuddle I couldn't even talk to her so in the end I just let her get over it in her own way and she did in the end. When she had calmed down she managed to skate around a bit in an area of the rink where it wasn't so busy but didn't go out on the rink and when we asked her later if she wants to go again she said yes so I guess that is a good sign.
So here is what I can share that I have done in the past few days.
Another card sketch site I have stumbled across while do ing some blog surfing so I thought I'd play along.
Blank card
I have left the greeting of this one so that I have a blank card when I need one at a moments notice. It will be quicker to add a greeting than to make up a new card.
Pages in time
While doing some blog surfing I also came across a new American kit site and thought I'd join up and play along with some of the chalenges. This layout and card was done for a challeneg to make a card from scraps of a layout and as I had the layout in from of me I thought I try and use the layout as a sketch.

If you have some time pop on over and check out Pages in time as it looks as if it is going to be a fun place to hang out.


Hero Arts.

One of the girs over in the flicka group posted a challenge to case or scrap lift a card from a Hero Arts catalouge so when I was packing up for my crop night on Friday I popped in a catalouge and got my friend to pick out a card for me. Silly me though I for got to add a few more of my Hero Arts stamps so only had one set there. Luckily for me my friend had some.

Fab cards and LO's - that's a good idea to leave some cards blank for last minute cards - must remember to do that.
Love the LO and your sneak peek.

Lovely work as always. I'm with Jocelyn, your work always makes me smile! As for skating, you let Miss Asher know that someone in blogland heard of her skating story and wants to reassure her that while skating can be a most unfortunate experience, a very long and productive (well, we hope) life can be lead without EVER putting skates on again. Of course, I would be referencing my own experiences! Do give her a hug from me and while you are at it give yourself a hug from me as well. Sounds like you earned it! LOVE YA!

Guess Purple Onion bag of goodness arrived YAY (and I got....the script background, the Ornamentals set - lots of flourishes & swirls, then a few of the cheapies on special - the pointing finger, flower blossons, tulip, flowerhead set & a few little freebies that were thrown in - YAY!).

Hi, Julie! Here's hoping Asher does better the next time you go to the skating rink! I liked skating a lot when I was her age. Couldn't do it now if I tried! Love the Hero Arts catalog CASE! :-)
