No time to stop!

I had a fantastic day on Saturday with some Stampin' Up ladies, learning what they do and lots of good skills. I also got to play with some of the goodies which is always fun! I had a busy, busy weekend - which didn't help that I was already shattered when Fri evening came. Friends were over for dinner in the evening, the SU ladies Saturday followed by a football presentation in the evening, and then my first big charity bike ride which I was organising for the charity I work for came on Sunday - followed by a bbq at a friend's house afterwards! Needless to say, by 7pm I was in bed and could not drag myself from it for anything. The bike ride was a huge success though and the scorching sun of course helped the day to be very enjoyable.

Inbetween blog posts though, I've been making a few cards requested by friends, including this batch of graduation cards. I went for the simple as it's all I've had time for, backed onto some Papermania decorated card blanks.

This was another of the personal cards - a 90th birthday for a gardening lover, so I used a digital free download (from Kate Hadfield I think it was - her link is on my blog).

I am an official convert to digital downloads - they are a life saver for last minute cards when you haven't got the materials you need at midnight and the shops are shut - voila, download a digi file!

Hey Jenny! :)
Just wanted to say hello and thank you- I got curious about blogs after reading your article in C&P and have been so wonderfully amazed at what I found!! So much inspiration and talent out there at the click of a mouse (great for me as I can't get out to demos etc.)- I could spend all day just looking!! And I've even started my own crafty blog now!! :)
Shall click to become a follower of your's in a mo' so I don't miss anything!! I love your style- I've recently got into distressing and get carried away covering everything in ink so it's great to be reminded that clean and simple designs can be just as beautiful!! :)
Hope you're feeling recovered after your incredibly busy weekend!
hugs, Rachel x
