Happy August

Hello  there...I can't believe it's August already! 

I've not had a lot of time for blogging - My husband has been looking for a new car - The older he gets, the harder it is for him to make a decision so it takes him months to make up his mind. This time has been no exception and as I'm not a car person (I'm just happy as long as it gets me from A to B) it gets very frustrating. He goes from showroom to showroom, reads up just about everything on each car and still struggles to pick one within his budget. Then just when I think he's made up his mind, he can't decide on colour. I can't tell you how many I've had to go look at with him and offer an opinion on colour, but still he hesitates.
Finally... FINALLY! It's sorted. I went to a dealership with him this week, saw a car that we both liked and negotiated a deal that he was very happy with phew!  

I have managed to make some cards though and today I have an anniversary card I made for friends of ours, plus a very quick retirement card for a colleague of my husband...
I went with a fun and colourful anniversary card this time instead of hearts and flowers

I just love that hen and recently got the stamp set so you'll be seeing more of her... She's coloured with Copics but the BG and balloons are ink blended
 I cut the "happy" on my Cameo and stamped and embossed the sentiment
I didn't have much inspiration when it came to the retirement card ...
...So again it was ink blending and a die cut from the bits box
Plus a little stamping and embossing, and he really liked it.

Hubby has just returned home after playing golf and asked me to make a new home card for one of his golfing buddies so I'd better get on.

I hope you have a super day

Till soon
