Hello everyone, a bit of a catch up!

This week has been super busy and the time has just flown, I can't believe that it is well over a week since I last posted anything on here, as well as having a lot going on at home, my computer has been playing up and it has been difficult to get or maintain broadband connections, making it almost impossible to blog.

My entry for Tuesday Taggers last week was actually a card!! the theme for the week was to use punches and or die cuts
The base card is acetate giving all the other layers the appearance of floating in mid air, I have used a Martha Strwart Border punch, punched a heart out of serendipity and then punched holes and put eyelets in before threading ribbon through and finishing off the heart with the LOVE brad, this has then been attached to a punched and stamped tag and placed on the front of the acetate, the serendipity background and brown matting layer with the punched border are inside the card, and there is a cream insert which has also been border punched. I love the layered look that I have achieved and also the fact that I made the serendipity papers out of scraps, I hate to throw anything away.
Smokey and Smudge, the kittens, are growing fast and beginning to settle in really well, they are getting more confident and enjoying exploring their new home. They had their first visit to the vet on Wednesday for their injections and behaved really well, then met another one of the other members of our household, Zulu our elderly Labrador / Greyhound Cross who seems quite happy to have them join the family.
On Thursday Kate, our friend Jim and I had a wonderful day out in York, including shopping and a good lunch then culminating in a hotair balloon trip in the evening, this was great fun and something we would all love to do again. Both Kate and Jim had special birthdays this year and this balloon trip was one of their birthday presents.
I have taken lots of photos of the kittens and of our balloon trip and will add some to the blog in the next day or so when I have uploaded them from my camera.
Bye for now
Bee xx
