An expensive weekend!

Sadly my trusty Bosch washing machine gave up the ghost and died on Friday. I can't complain as it was nearly 10yrs old and had never gone wrong. So off to Curry's we went yesterday and a few hundred pounds lighter we now have one of the latest Samsung models on order...the down side we have to wait until the first week in April for delivery...............todays bin load of washing is kindly being done by my dear MIL, well by her machine. When we first got married the first thing that came through our front door was a washing machine as I had grown up at home with mum doing the washing in the sink and then using a spinner.......hard work and not my idea of fun!
Anyway I have been busy card making this past week and made around 50 8 x 8 cards, very pleased with the results so when we visit Ally Pally next month I intend stocking up on 8 x 8 card blanks. Here's some of what I did.

I did make male cards as well. I found this 8 x 8 size card very nice to work with. I made a slight dent in my stash mountain too. Need to tidy my craft room now and see if there's anything I need when we go to Ally P.
Tomorrow I need to finish off the May Bramford crop kit, I'm nearly there.
April is going to be a busy month with something on every weekend. We start off with the Bramford crop on the 5th, the 12th is Ally P, on the 19th Andy and I are off to London for the day and seeing The Lion King in the evening, the 26th my mum and dad celebrate their Golden wedding so we're off out for a meal, in between all this Emily has Ipswich Gang Show the Easter week and Andy and I are going to see the musical Jesus Christ Super Star at the Ipswich Regent....busy, busy.
The May Bramford crop is the first Saturday and will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day NSD. The crop will run from 9am-8pm with free prize draws through the day and my good friend Karen Curd who's a Stampin Up demonstrator putting on a make n take in the afternoon.
Well I've now some trousers to turn up so needs must as they say.

Have a good week.
