And the lesson for today: Do not iron name tapes onto socks

My son’s sports kit arrived yesterday so I spent the evening ironing on name tapes ready for him to start his new school in September.   I have learnt though that ironing on names to acrylic rugby socks will result in a big hole in said sock.  Need to buy another pair.

Guest designer for Little Miss Muffet Challenges

Guest designer at Little Miss Muffet

I was delighted to win some Little Miss Muffet digis recent from their new range – I did it by showing the banner to the side.  Then they asked me to guest design for their latest challenge “Neapolitan Ice Cream”.   So here are the three cards I created or please look at the link above to see what the other designers came up with.

Made with the Little Miss Muffet digi called Summer Breeze and free papers from Making Cards Magazine for the Little Miss Muffet Challenge: Neapolitan Ice cream.
I though that the caption was amusing though the ough moe fitting to last week’s weather than this week’s.

Summer is Here!

I say knowing that some of you will have been swimming in downpours again, but at least the sun  shone periodically in Bristol today!

I (as a teacher) broke up from school yesterday as did my children and my eldest left his primary as he goes into Year 7 in September.  We had a great village celebration and outdoor party and the children were appropriately wrecked today!

Anyway, on to cardmaking.  I really need to buy this this stamp that I have seen.  I might get it here but it is too cute and I think would be perfect for a “good luck in your new school” card for my boy.  http://www.natalieandamy.co.uk/ourshop/prod_2082295-My-Boy.html Watch this space!!Image
