Hello my sweet friends

Ooh it was so lovely to read your comments on my last post. I am so glad to be back. This week has been hectic, but not with card making. It was the last week of term. We finished today at 3.00pm and I have just got in , mowed the lawn and thought I had better get back to some blogging and craft work! We always have a staff end of term buffet and this time I was in sole charge. I had everyone's contributions and then had to shop ( took 3 afternoons to make sure I got the best value for money), cook and then on Thursday morning layout the buffet food and tables. Another teaching assistant helped too. We work well together as we each know what jobs to do and another teacher helped with the tables and collecting the freshly made samosas. I bought white flat bed sheets to use as tablecloth's and cut out pink table mats from my Sizzix Pro. I bought some 25p beer glasses and filled them with crumbled up pink paper and put 2 pink flower stems in. I don't know why I didn't take a picture!
Finally I put some tealights on the tables too. The buffet served about 48 members of staff and was successful, with loads of food left over.
Also on Wednesday we had a staff meal out to say goodbye to 3 members of staff who were retiring. In the photo I am the one who looks huge in the black and white dress. Maxi dresses do nothing for me.I was up from 2.00 am that morning as we had to pick up one of Daniels friends so that we could take them to B/ham airport as they were going on holiday.
So a very busy week. Roll on the 6 weeks holidays!!!!!!!
Here are a few more of the samples I made for Sarah at Hotshotcrafts. If you want to buy the Kanban stamps I used there is a link at the top of my sidebar
