Amazing Quote

I was visiting one of my favourite blogs today when I came across this quote, and I thought is was amazing, have a read at it. If you have not spoken to a friend in a while, give them a call.

In the end we will remember
not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.

— Martin Luther King Jr.

Remember ...The road to a friends house is never long.

I have finally decided that its time to take the bull by the horns and I have to downsize. Downsize what I hear you ask, the car, the house, my working hours (I wish) no, unfortunately I need to downsize ME!!!!, I can no longer keep blaming the fact that I was ill for my size, well I can blame it for my size, but not for me still being this size...if you know what I mean. I know because I was ill, it may be harder to lose weight, but, were theres a will, theres a they meet my friend Snowy the snowman, he is going to help me to lose 14lbs by Christmas.

My hat weighs 2lbs
My Broom weighs 3lbs
My eyes weigh 1lb each
My Carrot nose weighs 1lb
My arms weigh 2lb each
My candy cane weighs ½ lb
And my buttons weigh ½ lb each

So watch this space and see how I get on...hopefully he will be the amazing shrinking snowman!!!!

Busy Busy Busy

This is as far as I have got with this beautiful little cross stitch. I seem to be having one of those times when I am so busy that I cannot find time to just sit and chill and I am beginning to get withdrawl sypmtoms LOL. I have not stitched or done any scrap booking in ages...really need to make the time, I make the time for everything else.

Royal Highland Show

I went to the Royal Highland Show today, I cannot believe I am 49 and this is the first time I have ever attended this event. I must admit I did not know what to expect, lots of cows and tractors I think...but it was an amazingly entertaining day. So much to see and so much to do. I would like to go back with a friend or my would be so much better then.

My Friend Sharon

This would have been my entry for the monthly challenge over on UKS if I had managed to upload it on time, the challenge was to celebrate friends. I have never met Sharon as she lives in Michigan and I live in Scotland...but through our team and online chats I have come to think of her as a very special friend.

Spring is in the Air

How gorgeous are these snowdrops. I would love to say they are mine but sadly not...but hopefully by this time next year these little beauties will be growing in my garden. I was very lucky this week to be given some snowdrops to plant....I can honestly say that I love these little flowers, no matter how bad the weather, how rough the conditions...every year these little beauties pop their heads up and take on the world. So delicate but so tough.

Shutter Card

There is a craft group that meets once a month at our church halls and for some reason whenever I say I am going along, they ask if I could show them a technique or a style of card they have never done before. Well the group met this morning and I decided I would show them how to make a Tri fold shutter card, this is not my usual style of card...I know they can be made very decorative with patterned papers etc, but I decided to keep mine clean and simple. I got no crafting of my own done, except the card as I was busy showing them how to fold the was a good laugh watching everyone trying to figure it out. But that means I am now home trying to sort out the craft make and takes for tomorrow nights Womens Fellowship meeting...oh well better get on.

An Angel watched over me today

I had an angel watching over me today. Since been given the all clear for breast cancer last September, I have had no problems. However a few days ago I discovered a lump, I hoped it would go away on its own...wishful yesterday I bit the bullet and phoned the hospital, my fabulous surgeon agreed to see me today...and after a lot of poking and prodding..he was able to determine it was not a tumor...but a problem with scar tissue...I floated out of the hospital....maybe one of these days I will stop being scared of my own body...please my friends be breast aware...It could save your life x

Fight like a girl

How fabulous is this digi stamp by Whimsie Doodles, I knew the minute I saw it that I had to have it. Having had Breast Cancer myself I know how important it is to get the message out there, so these will either go to the Oncology Unit where I got my treatment, or be sold by myself to raise money for the unit. I am also entering this card into the Colour create challenge check it out.

Cake decorating Demo

My friend Deborah came along to womens fellowship to give a demo on cake decoration, as you can see it was quite a cake...and she cut it up afterward and gave everyone a would have broken my heart LOL

SSCC#24 Sorry your Leaving

This is a card for the SSCC#24. The challenge was to make a card or project with an image of a child or childlike things on it (such as toys or a saying about children), but not a baby card.

This weeks scripture was Matthew 18:4 "Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."

I used "Bye Bye" digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil . You must admit she is a cutie:)

Lets Go

This is my take on the weekly challenge over on UK scrappers this week, really late in getting it done. This is my little dog Tara, we were packing the car to go to the caravan for the weekend...and in she got...and refused to budge LOL, 45 minutes she sat there. She was certainly determined not to be left behind....not that we would have...she is such a little darling.
