This is another scheduled post as hopefully ( she says with fingers crossed ) I’m sunning myself on the beach but I have a little feeling of dejavou , last time I said that both hubby and I got ill and our holiday was cancelled. As I’m typing this the sun has gone in, the sky has filled with huge black clouds and storms are forecast for the next few days ! Just my luck. This week in Greece and especially the 15th of August it is one of the most import days here as we celebrate the Virgin Marys name day. Anyone who is called, Maria ( most of the women ) Despina, Panagiota, Panagioti ( male ) celebrate this day so it’s about three-quarters of the Greek population. The city empties, people return to their villages or go on holiday and its the only time you can find a parking space ! So I’m off to join my friends and family at our summer home.
Before I go any further I would like to thank of you all ladies who took the time to pop over to my sister Karen’s blog Tricky Little Stitches and left her a comment and for all your lovely words , we were both moved and I know you really made her day , and mine .
Over at Addicted to Stamps its time for another challenge and this weeks theme is ” Cards for the Boys ” I really had a tricky time with this one I can tell you , I wanted to stay true to my style, whatever that is , and didn’t, couldn’t go the very masculine route , so I decided to stay clean and simple and this is what I came up with
All of the cards were made with my Cameo including the sentiment and of course except for the little heart on the first which was covered in stickles ! I cut out the silhouettes several times using thick card stock and then glued them together to get a little dimension .
Please pop over to Addicted to Stamps to see what the rest of the lovely ladies of the DT have been up to and why not play along, we love to see your creations and your are all such a wonderfully inspirational bunch of bananas ..oh sorry I meant ladies…..well some of you are bananas !!
