I'm back!

We had a lovely holiday in Ireland and it was great to see Roisin and Chris get married. Roisin looked beautiful and the wedding was lovely.

I thought I would share a couple of the photos from our holiday. The above picture was taken on Mulranny beach and most days we would be joined by a very tame seal there!

Our Blue German Shepherd Beamish had a wonderful time. I don't think he was dry the whole week. It was the first time he had seen the sea and he loved it!

The girls decided that it would take too long to change into swimsuits so they just went in fully clothed.

It was nice to have a break and get out of the house after being "trapped" for 6 weeks after my surgery.

And now we have the fantastic last chance list from Stampin UP and the new calendar which launches on the October 1st (I've seen it and believe me it's full of GORGEOUS goodies) I am going to be running a wish list service for anyone who would like to get their other halves to contact me and make all their Stampin UP dreams come true for Christmas and birthdays.

Talking of Christmas, I managed to get into my craft room yesterday and I played about with bleach.

I used Night of Navy cardstock and the gorgeous medallion stamp and used bleach instead of ink! As long as you clean your stamp straight away the bleach does no harm.

I then used the Merry Christmas stamp and embossed it in gold and then bleach stamped the reindeer. It's really effective and great fun and you can experiment with different coloured cardstock to see different effects that the bleach has.

Anyway, I hope you like my card and if you want to order anything from the last chance list then please e-mail me or call me on 07590568117.

Have a great day
