Easter Bank Holiday Weekend

Bit late in coming, but I thought I'd still put up a Bank Holiday post, seems rude not to, although unlike everyone else, my choccie supply is still pretty much intact and likely to last me for a good while to come! It's funny but if I do have Easter Eggs I'm not in the mood for eating them, but if I don't I miss having some munchies about. Anyway the Easter Bunny left me with two, and a Bank Holiday break that was pretty good.



I did pick up another cold bug which hasn't been much fun this week, and there was some typical Easter Sunday rain which put paid to some plans, but that gave me a good chance to get stuck into some reading (something I've wanted to do for a while, but nothing was sinking in). I picked up the new Bridget Jones novel by Helen Fielding, and managed to read a good portion of that. I've not read the previous two books, only seen the films, but it's a pretty good read so far.

Bank Holiday Monday was the best day of the long weekend by far, mostly helped by the fact it was lovely and warm and sit outside sunny. I got into the garden and flexed my green fingers a little - something quite satisfying about killing weeds!

My sister visited with my favourite little person and her gorgeous fluffball Wilson as well, and we had a lot of fun in the garden. Wilson was full of energy bounding around the garden after his ball (when my nephew wasn't stealing it), and Mum set up a little Easter Egg hunt for Joey. Think he is too little to get the significance of it all just yet, but he enjoyed taking his new pull along around to collect the eggs and found all the healthy treats inside. Aunty Lauren also bought him a little set with a spade, fork, bucket, and little watering can which he seemed to really like, I am training him early to help me grow things in the garden.



It was just the day I needed, sun, family, and relaxing times in the garden thinking of nothing, what Bank Holiday's should be all about.

I'll attach a few pics to this post so you can see what we all got up too, if you have any Easter tales to tell, I'd love to hear them. I reply to all messages, and try my best to read all your lovely blog posts.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car

3 Ways With Mama Makes Bohemian Border Stamps

Hi Everyone, There's a little bit of a crafty overload here and on social media at the moment, but there are other posts planned and in draft form, so please look out for those, they just take a little bit of time to put together. Meantime I wanted to share the Mama Makes Bohemian Border stamps. I am a member of the design team, but bought these as I really liked the range of different designs - there are 10 in total, and had quite a few ideas of what I could do with them. I thought I'd post the stamps below, and 3 very different makes I came up with using them. 1) A Christmas Card - The Bohemian Border here I used as a Christmas garland, and absolutely love how it looks all coloured and glittered (had to get a little sparkle in there). The other thing I like about this set, is some of the designs are more of a bunting/garland shape, and not just a straight line, so there are handy gaps you can decorate with stick on gems or small embellishments for a finishing touch.
