No Time!

I'm not sure where the week has gone... it was one of those weeks. No free time. The weekend has disappeared equally as quickly. I went to see Mamma Mia at the Clydeside Auditorium (SECC) with my mum and two aunts yesterday... it was a birthday present for my mum. The show was brilliant and not at all what I expected. It was quite clever how they managed to weave so many ABBA songs through the story.

I spent much of today fighting with the Tom Tom GPS software and their web-site trying to download a map of New England (for our next trip)... what a waste of time. The software they told me to use was "too new" and I had to uninstall it and use the old software first... you'd think they could build in a feature to alert you to this to eliminate the crystal ball factor? Anyway... it took me several hours, but I managed it in the end.

I've included photos of a couple of cards I've made this weekend... The card above uses three of the stamps from the Stampin' Up! Cheers to You stamp set (which is one of my favourite sets), some ribbon scraps, a scrap of patterned paper and SU Only Orange and Pixie Pink cardstock. The other card (below) says "Leanne" in large letters. The colours and style were "by request" for a 19 year old's birthday card. I've used Stardust Stickles glitter glue in each of the holes and it's much more glittery in the flesh. The letters were cut using the Quickutz Revolution Spotlight cookie cutter alphabet dies.
