Blimey, six posts in six days! Just don't expect one tomorrow! I was having a tidy up of the crafting table of doom and decided to use up a few bits. I had some left over fairies, flowers and houses from the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends set, so I added them onto a snippet of pixie powder and cloud stencil background. I added a mat of dark blue card behind it and die cut the Memory Box hello from the same card. A little faux stitching to finish and job done!
I'm currently home alone, well apart from the bunnies, as Hubby is at the World Goldpanning Championships in Moffat in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. The championships are running all week, so if you can get there I'm sure you'll enjoy it and they'll teach you to goldpan free of charge! The event has a website if you want to find out more.
Hubby was interviewed on BBC Radio 2 last night in their "how to" slot about the championships. If you're interested you can listen to it on iplayer for the next month. He's about 20 minutes in.  I think he came over really well, but then I am biased! After his interview, they asked people to text in about precious things they'd found. Well, of course I had to text in to say that I'd found hubby and that our wedding rings are made out of gold that he'd found, and they read it out, so I'm claiming that I'm as famous as hubby now!


  1. What a sweet card - so cute! Good use of the bits and pieces on your craft table.

    Congratulations on your little moment of fame!! Lovely story about your wedding rings. xx

  2. What a wonderful story Cara, makes your rings even more precious.

  4. I love to have a fresh clean desk. This is a cute card with a pretty background.

    I like panning for gold. I'm not good at it, but it's fun. The only place we know to go is in Dahlonega, Georgia USA. We took the family years ago. Oh, good memories. [Bunny]

  5. Really lovely card Cara, great little fairies and a super CAS design.
    Was going to ask you if your Hubby was still panning, obvious he is, how fab him being on the radio and you too in a way.
