I hope you're all feeling well and happy?! I've had such a busy - and fun - few days but I'm exhausted after it all! Last Thursday we went for our flight that we have been trying to go on for a while! My brother and sisters and I bought a flying lesson for our Daddy for his 60th birthday last year in a 4 seater Cessna, so there would be him, the pilot and two of us able to go up. My brother and my names were picked out of the hat to go and after a few appointments having to be cancelled due to bad weather, we finally got to go last week. To say I was a little nervous about it is an understatement! My Mammy came with us as a stand-in in case I chickened out - and it was a close call! But at the very last minute I thought I'd kick myself if I didn't go, so off I went! It was a little bumpy and it didn't help that the pilot showed us how to "spiral into the ground in a fiery ball"!! He was good craic! But we got to fly right down over where we live and over our beautiful Mourne Mountains. I took a lot of photos but haven't even had a chance to look at them yet! I'll post some in a separate blog post later maybe. I did feel a little sick in the plane but I managed to hold it together and we landed safely - and I really enjoyed it!
The next part of my busy weekend was the Stonecrusher's Ball on Friday night. My family own and run a quarry (and I work in the office) and every year all the quarries in Northern Ireland have a special night out in the Europa Hotel in Belfast. So it was lovely to get all dressed up for a good night out.
Saturday night was spent in my aunt and uncles house for their surprise party for their 25th wedding anniversary! It's hard to believe that its 25 years since their wedding! I was one of their flower-girls! And so cute I was too! :P
Sunday was late home and feeling a little fragile after 2 big nights out! The less said the better! lol!
Anyway, time for another challenge, me thinks, at the Creative Card Crew!
We are being sponsored this fortnight by the Scrapping Center
The challenge is a lovely one and the theme is...
The Sun, Moon or Stars!
I love that theme!
My card was made in a little bit of a hurry, but this is what I came up with:
My image is by Tiddlyinks and I coloured her with the following copics: skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Hair; E37.YR24,23,21. Stars; Y15 (plus clear stardust pen). Dress; B39,37,34,G14,YG13,11. Wings; V04,BV31.
The papers I have used are DCWV "Once upon a time" and the dies are Whiff of Joy, Stars festoon; Memory Box, Night sky border; Spellbinders, circle and large scalloped circle. A few swarovski's were added to some of the stars. The sentiment is computer generated.
The inside has been done to match the front.
So I do hope you can join us for this celestial challenge and have some fun with it! Pop over to the Creative Card Crew blog to see the rest of the DT's fab makes!
