My lovely kind husband has just bought me a Cricut machine. After a little bit of practice, here are 2 cards that I managed to make. I must say I'm quite pleased with them for my first attempt.

This week, I've cheated. I'm using this layout for both the My Time to Craft challenge and for Lesley's monthly scrapbook challenge on Craft Swap Forum.
Lesley's challenge was to use a plain background, one photo, journalling in your own handwriting and to use rubber stamping somewhere.
The My Time to Craft Challenge is dark hair, which is what the monkey and myself have.......I hope you can tell which is which.
I've had such a nightmare of a weekend. We spent Friday and Saturday night at A & E with my daughter. Unfortunately a fun game and a tickling competition turned into disaster with Aimee falling off the bed with me on top of her resulting in a chipped bone to the elbow. Still, as you can see, she's quite happy with it.

Every year we have an annual duck race in our village. We all purchase a duck and then 500 rubber ducks are set free up the river to travel about half a mile to the weir. They all tumble over the weir, pop up again eventually and 'race' to the finish line. It took well over 2 hours this year as the current was so slow, but it's been a beautiful day and so many villagers turned out for it.
