First of all I have to say that I am really sorry that this is so late - I'm not punctual at the best of times but I have a really valid reason which you can read about further down my blog!  


Digi - 'Aiden' from Mo's Digital Pencil
7" x 7" White Card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Graphic 45 'Le Cirque' Paper pad
Tattered Lace Dies - Decorative Edge Square die
Die-namics Dies - Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax die
Marianne Designs - Metal gems
Sentiment typed then foiled on my Minc machine
Copic markers

I really do love this image and is one I could use over and over again, especially with my Graphic 45 papers - which as some will know - I only use on special occasions!  It's normally there just for stroking and looking at!

You know our challenges are JFF but we do have some super badges for the side bars of the DT Favourite and Top 3, so although I'm late posting there's lots of time left for your creations.

Talking of being late here's my really good reason for it!!!  On Tuesday it was confirmed that I have a dry socket - well I knew at my age all sorts of things happen but I was still  totally surprised!!  Nooooooooooo .... it's not what you think ... it's worse - last Wednesday (7 June) I went to the dentist to have a tooth out - one right at the back, naturally, and for various reasons I now have the above condition which is more painful than the initial toothache.  I'm dosed up on strong painkillers and even went back to the dentist Tuesday for a 'clean up' and a dressing in the canyon sorry socket!!  The pain is excruciating and goes from the middle of me chin right up to my inner ear.  So I have earache in both ears - one medical and one husband (only joking)!!!  It seems as if it's going to be like this for about two weeks - aren't I the lucky one.  Anyway Jordan - yup I'm on first name terms with me dentist now - has promised that I will get me sparkle back soon - I'm counting the days. 

Must be going now 'cos the painkillers are starting to wear off, (you are all yawning)  and there's another hour before I can take any more - not that I'm counting!  There's another little story I have to tell you (not quite as boring as the above) about Biscuit, his friends and trips out in the car but that's for another day!

Hugs to you all , especially friends and those of you who need a special cuddle!

Love Suexxx

Hi there - today is the start of a new challenge over at the Crafty Calendar blog and our theme is 'Boys will be Boys' sooooo we need to see your creations for the men in our lives and you don't have to stick to paper-crafting.  We've been sponsored by Dr Digi's House of Stamps and they have some wicked stamps that go really well with this subject.

This poor chap has been out there building his sandcastle and has forgotten his suncream (naughty boy) so he has sun-burnt shoulders, v-neck (lol), head and nose!  Oh and don't forget his Baywatch shorts together with his sandals and socks - eeew!

I hope you can join in our challenge this time, we love seeing your creations on the blog.  Why not pop over and check out the work created by my teamies - we have four brilliant new ladies joining us this month.

Talking about new ladies - I'm so pleased to see that I have two new followers on my blog, welcome to you both.   I hope you like my cards and the little stories about our cat and other things that tend to happen to me - I'm not known as Planet Susie for nothing!


Image - 'Seaside Stanley' from Dr Digi's House of Stamps
7" x 7" White card base - Anna Marie Designs
 Graphic 45 - 'By the Sea' 12" x 12" paper pad
DCWV - 'Jewel' Coloured Mat Stack paper pad
Unbranded Dies - Wave die
Copic and Flexmarkers
Stardust Stickles
Gems - Unbranded 

We're off to the Stamp Magic Show at the Dome in Doncaster tomorrow where we are meeting up with Sue J (Olliesmam) and her hubby Paul.  We aren't daft, the men chat to each other while we chat and shop - I think it will probably be more chatting than shopping 'cos we haven't seen each other for aaaaaaaages.  So looking forward to this.

Anyway I must be off now, next door are having a barbecue and I have a feeling Biscuit has invited himself - little devil!  They don't feed him 'cos they know he has a special diet but he does love entertaining and rolls on his back for a tummy tickle!

Catch you again soon.

Big hugs to you all.

Love Suexxx
