Lots to tell & share!!

After I last blogged saying my Internet connection was fixed, which was absolutely days ago, it went down again!!! So after not having been able to post for several days I have lots to tell you.

I will start with today and tell you about my visitors, Maddy, Rachel and Calvin at the Craft Den and guess who was with them? Yes, Calvin mouse Crafter and Superstar and his friend Rotty Rat.
Although I am not too sure if that friendship is wearing abit thin!!
Calvin mouse has been to the shop once before and he was quiet well behaved, apart from eating toooo many chocolate doughnuts and making himself ill, oh and going missing when it was time to go home... Anyway today Rotty rat got himself into a bit of a mess and Calvin mouse was just loving that!
We were all sat chatting away over a cup of coffee when we heard this little voice calling "Maddy come and look what Rotty's doing, he's going to be in big trouble now"
Maddy went over to where the voice was coming from to find Calvin mouse and Rotty in the ribbons. According to Calvin mouse Rotty had been playing in the ribbons and got himself all knotted up!! Maddy wasn't very pleased at all!! and Calvin mouse was just loving Rotty getting in trouble!! LOL

I am sure Maddy would have something to say to them when she got home!! LOL
On Saturday Ava came to visit she is 14 weeks old today, hasn't that gone fast? Although I see her every week she changes every time I see her.

Chanelle, Net and Julie also called in on Saturday so Ava got lots of cuddles!! lol
Sorry Ann and Linnie you both called too early and missed out on the cuddles!! lol
Here one of Ava opening an Easter pressies last week.

A couple of quick cards I made last week. The first one is using the new clear cowboy stamp set from Woodware, which made a real change for me instead of sport or DIY which is what I would usually use to make a mans card. I like the little cactus stamp in this set! lol

For my second card I used a Sugar Nellie stamp, Luca playing football and the papers are from Daisy Bucket Broadwalk range which I use alot for male cards.

So hopefully I will be able to blog again sooooon, fingers crossed!! lol
