What have you done today

Well I have to mention first one of the most amazing games of tennis I have ever watched. We were taking every shot for both players in the end I felt it so much - awesome!

But back to the title, well today I have done lots of things. Firstly we bought a teepee and I know what some of you may be thinking, Woodstock, Mamas and the papas, pooing in a peat toilet and passing a big long pipe, but you should see it it's really cool and was on offer in Argos ;D as we are planning to get away for some long weekends. Heaven help us mind as I haven't been camping in years, I am such an old women at 34 hee hee and like my creature comforts. But in my day I roughed it with the best of them and can't wait.

Altogether today we bought a teepee, went for a long walk on the beach, did some food shopping, watched an amazing game of tennis, made a card, performed my 'going back to work tomorrow' ablutions, seen to my little scamp, wrote up my post for today and finally made another card to photograph tomorrow morning (when there is good light before I go to work).

Wow this is such a long post for me, but I had fun. Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up! - Stamps: tart & tangy and polkadots & paisley. Card stock: old olive, whisper white & real red. Ink: certainly celery, old olive, real red & chocolate chip, ribbon: always artichoke narrow grosgrain. Paper: pumpkin pie designer series paper.

Hi Emma - wow a teepee sounds really cool! I stayed in one in America once, came complete with a wild snake but I'm sure you won't get that over here!

Wasn't the final just amazing yesterday - phew!

Love the scalloped design of this card, have a great week! Kate x

Hi Emma,
I'm very similar to you, I like all my bits and bobs around me [I'm not really the outdoorsy type] but it should like your going to have loads of fun.

I love the card and think the colours are fantastic.

Have a great day - Julie xxx

Another really nice card. Maybe your teepee experience will influence some of your next projects! We bought a tent 2 years ago and I still haven't been brave enough to go camping yet ... I am a total worrier and like my creature comforts. I'm sure you will have loads of fun though. Have a good day
