OSAAT Challenge Time

Its Sunday, so that means only 1 thing .... OSAAT. Well maybe a roast dinner too lol ;O)

I have finally made the time to, join back in with the team and make cards again... Its been far far too long. For my .... comeback I got to use a gorgeous image/ paper pack by the stuntastic  Coosty Creations  and I used her brilliant Steampunk Ship Digital stamp and Paper Pack  Its such a great image especially for men. Which as we all know is one of the hardest cards to make ;O)

Heres my creation

I have used ric rac ribbon and hessian on my card along with 2 papers from the kit. Not forgetting the stunning image which I have coloured with my Pro Markers and a gold signo pen ;O)

Pop over to the challenge blog and join us in our Anything Goes Challenge.
The prize this week is all the images that our DT  girls used in challenge #184. So a fabtastic prize worth well over $20

Saturday Demo Day

Now I must write a note to myself .... When doing a demonstration day at work. Put my camera into my craft bag !! I can not believe I forgot it .... again :O(

Ahhh well I suppose I can tell you about my makes and then update my blog with a photo when I go back into work on Monday ;O) Now theres an idea :O)

Today I made a Christmas Stocking bunting :O)  Using a template from the Creativity magazine think it was the September issue.. I made one for each staff member in Christmassy colours.. Then I added everyones names using a new Fabric Metallic letter stickers. They are soooo cool. For only £1 , I will buy some more.
I also continued to make some more of the Twelve Days of Christmas card set that I started on the last demo day.. So that's 8 out of the 12 made so far :O)  They will be finished on the next demo day.. Then the store will have 12 cards to give out to our sister stores. ;O) So that's a helpful demo make by me.
Lots of crafty questions were asked and answered. Overall a lovely day :O)

I promise I will update with a picture of the cool bunting :O)

Not a card today

There isn't a card on my blog today. Just a little poem that was shared with me today at my Grandfathers nursing home....
The words are so touching, they never fail to bring a tear or ten to my eye..
My granddad is such a super star. Hes fighting myloema ( blood cancer) , his kidneys are struggling and now he has Alzheimers...  Seeing him struggle is so heart wrenching.. To think just a few months ago he was living in his own home, doing everything for himself and driving still :O)

So my post for today is one for my Grandad.. Who I love with all my heart xx

Do not ask me to remember
Don't try to make me understand.
Let me rest and know you're with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.

I'm confused beyond your concept,...
I'm sad and sick and lost.
All I know is that I need you,
To be with me at all cost

Do not lose your patience with me,
Do not scold me or curse or cry.
I can't help the way i'm acting,
I can't be different though I try.

Just remember that I need you,
that the best of me is gone.
Please don't fail to stand beside me,
love me till my life is gone
