Vroom Vroom …

I had an awesome day yesterday. I went over to Santa Pod to see time trials while the bikers and car enthusiasts did their testing.

I was over there with Linz and we were meeting a friend, Andy, who races his bike. Being my first ever experience at anywhere like that, I relayed on Petrol Head Linz (she doesn’t like me calling her that, sorry huney, please don’t hit me 😆 ) to answer all my questions. I tell you what though, she knows her stuff. I don’t think there was anything I asked that she couldn’t answer!!

Andy was doing extremely well on his very kewl bike, there was only one guy faster then him, so that’s not too bad. There were some such strange looking bikes, I didn’t know whether to laugh or to be amazed, I laughed in the end, I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but they were funny 😆

While we were waiting for the bikes to come around again some cars came on, a few of which were so funky 🙂

This is the cool car. It is around 52 years old but OMG does it go. I think it was one of the top runner in the timing while we were watching. I was, for want of a better phrase, gob smacked!! It was just so unexpected. Then again, we took pictures of the drivers and it wasn’t so surprising once we found out who they were. 😆

Much fun was had, Linz and I will probably be doing this again, was a good day …

Olympia Pics

I have finally got around to uploading some pictures of the Olympia show that I was at last month.

It was buzzing with activity and everyone kept me really busy with the make & takes and what a happy bunch you all were 🙂

Rachel, Ros and I had a great time, well, I did anyway 😆 We were lucky enough to be using some of the great tools from the Fiskars range and here’s samples of what we made:

One of the cards I did

This is a card using the Fingertip Swivel Knife, the Scallop Border Punch and a stamp from the new Fiskars Spring set and of course the mini Easy Stamp Press.

Box and Card that Rachel designed for the Make & Takes

Rachel made these fantastic boxes using the Shape Cutter Plus and Box Template, decorating with the Mini ShapeBoss and the Squeeze Punches. She came up with the cards using the Shape Cutter Plus and Punches too – I love them …

Ros’s Chickadee Mobile – just in time for Easter – so cute 😀

These really cute mobiles were made using the Shape Cutter Plus and Heart Templates, Ros suggested that one chick can be made and mounted onto a card for the ideal Easter card, how sweet 🙂

We are all working so hard … it’s a hard job, but someone’s got to do it 🙂

I must say, and I think I speak for Rachel and Ros too, we all had a great time and can’t wait until next year to do it all over again 😆
