Glitzy news, a volcano and Yorkshire

Hi all!

Well what a week! 1st off I have to share the news from Glitz!! I am absolutey thrilled to have been invited to stay with the Glitz DT following a fabulous 6 months on an amazing Glitzy journey and now we have been joined by some amazing talent and the DT has grown, go and meet my team mates here. So I'm happy to say more Glitzy goodness on the way!! Here's a Glitzy card I made my Dad for his birthday on Tuesday

I have been in Yorkshire for the past week with Stan looking after his sister Ruby while my Mum and Dad went away for a few days. We had so much fun on the moors, in the woods and at the seaside and needless to say I will bore you with the photos in my next post when I have gone through them all ... there are a few LOL!! Here's one of the terrible twosome though looking like butter wouldn't melt :)

It was so nice being 'home' as in the place where I grew up and it was fabulous to meet up with my bessies ... oh how I miss them! The pub is 'quiet' as for some reason within 20 minutes of us arriving we managed to clear the place .... oops!!!

When I got back I had the most beautiful thankyou card from Mustavcoffee my blog giveaway winner .... thankyou so much lovely and I will share a picture of it in my next post (if that's ok with you mustavcoffee!!)

Hubby was stranded in Egypt thanks to the Volcanic ash cloud but was eventually rescued by Disney .... I've always loved Mickey :) He had to travel from Sharm el Sheik to Cairo, then onto Jordan to Madrid to Seville then Cadiz where he finally joined the Disney Magic cruise ship! He has to work but heh nice work if you can get it heh!!!! Unfortunately another casualty of the volcanic ash cloud is the Scrapping angels retreat as the lovely Anna Bowkis has been on a family holiday to Florida and has been stranded ironically in Disney .. never liked that mouse LOL!!! The retreat will be re scheduled though and on a more personal note I hope Anna finally has a safe journey home with her family!!!

Well that's it for now just wanted to drop in to say Hi and share the Glitzy news! I'll be back soon with more Yorkshire pics and stuff. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you're all well and happy and until soon Happpy Crafting!!

  1. Now the next cruise you have to wangle is the Disney one. I had to stifle a giggle at you clearing the pub that's the joy of bezzies they make you laugh and know you really well and still like you! Love the card, what papers did you use?

  2. LOL Sonja! The papers on the card are Glitz Designs, Detour and there fab rubons and stickers :)

  3. Hi there Michelle, love the card, it's the perfect balance in grunge and strikingly modern!! I do find men's cards a challenge;D

    Hope your Hubbie's made it back safe and sound.
    Sorry I've had a bug I think, better now but that's why I've not been on.
    Of course you may show the Thankyou card....are you sure that's a good idea? Don't want to spoil your blog ;D

    I'm off now, with your inspiration I may be able to have a go, with the beautiful papers and glitzy bits that you sent, to make a card for a chap!
    Big Hugs,x
