Good Luck Humphrey

Sunday, 2 October 2011
Good morning everyone.  I hope it's as beautiful a morning where you as it is here in Berkshire.  We have certainly been spoiled with some gorgeous late summer/early autumn weather these past few days, but I think we deserve it given the pretty awful summer we had to contend with!

It's been a week since my last posting and not an awful lot has been happening in the land of Fewings.  Skittles wasn't so good for me as I ended up with the booby prize on our lane!  I wasn't able to get as far down as I'd like because of my back, but we all had a laugh and that was the main thing.

I do have a card to show you that I have made this week.  It's a good luck card for my boss who is taking her German Open University exam on Monday.  It's from all of us in our little team and our way of saying we're thinking of her.  She's worked so hard for this and I'm sure she'll do well.

I took the opportunity to use one of my new Humphrey stamps for this card and coloured him with my trust copics.  They've all been sat there patiently waiting for their turn!!  The backing papers are also from the Humphrey's Corner cd-rom.  The cardstock is from Core'dinations and I've used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and Doily Lace punch finish.

 I just think Humphrey is so cute and a delight to colour!  I'm looking forward to using all my other stamps as well as the elements from the cd's.

I've got a week of work now but not much crafting will be happening as I'm off up to Durham to visit my lovely sister for 4 days!  We're going bridesmaid dress shopping so that will be fun, but also spending time together as I've not seen her since June (one day) or spent quality time since March and I really miss having my big sister around.  Hubby is staying at home cat sitting!

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you leave, they are greatly appreciated, as always.
