    Flourgirl - I can imagine the pilots trying to get level - it's what DH & I call the 'waggle waggle' moment after my goddaughter went in the Junghman where the passenger is in the front and they can see the pilots feet either side of them & she said "we were coming into land then Uncle Ian's feet went 'waggle waggle waggle' & we were soon down after that"
    I also need new mirrors:rotfl:

    Npsmama - have a good holiday - if I lived a bit nearer I could come & water your plants for you.

    Rainmac - I wouldn't worry too much about little ones teeth I'm sure he'll grow out of it when he's good & ready - I did, but I'm not telling how old I was!!

    Mumhug - Congratulations on your new niece a very pretty name too.

    Bunbun - Ooh! Cub camp!! I hope they have good weather & lots of fun.
    Hope you are feeling better now.

    Now I'm sure someone said earlier this week that it was their birthday today but I can't remember who or find it so come on put me out of my misery 'fess up WHO IS IT? Or have I lost the plot?

    Ok so how easy are nesties to use in a cuttlebug can anyone tell me??

    I only got mine yesterday so have only used them twice but they are so easy it's unbelievable and there are instructions for stacking your plates in the packet :D
    Officially a non-smoker but still rounder than recommended :p

    Furry - Easy! You just need to get the order of the stack right & it's not much different to using cuttlebug ones. If you want to emboss with them you need a tan mat to absorb the cutting bit. When I got mine the lady in the shop gave me an instruction leaflet but I can't find it!! so Lei reminded me how the other day. The tan mat makes everything very slippy though if you need to emboss very precisely.

    Gemm - happy birthday for yesterday!!!

    Rainmac - I was going to order one of the martha stewart unches form Sarah's cards but I've resisted so far. The dots looked fab, but I wasn't sure how I would stick them on. I also saw the butterflies, but I wasn't sure whether I'd use them. I've looked at diestodiefor before - the have loads of fab alota stamps, I really like the donkey ones that they have on their home page! Your stitched card is gorgeous - no wonder they published it!!!

    The_Wife - was it a particular make of chipboard flourishes you were after or just any???

    Npsmama - hope you have a fab time camping.

    Mumhug - congrats to you and your sister - Jasmine is a gorgeous name!!!

    Bunbun2 - hope you fully recover soon. I have been havin horrible twinges for over a week now - but so far nothing!!!! OH is meant to be taking the kids to their great nans in a bit - so I'm hoping to have a relaxing afternoon spent lying on the couch and watching a film.

    Hey Guys,

    I have not had chance to catch up here yet sorry. I have made another Card recently for my dads birthday I will post a pic when I can. My 5 year old daughter made one too so will post a pic of that too.

    Will have to give me a couple of days though it has been a poorly house here and things are just getting back to normal.

    Mumhug Congratulations to you all on the safe arrival of baby Jasmine x Gorgeous name :)

    Melissa I hope Elliot will be here before Thursday so I can say "Hello" before I go on holiday

    Bunbun I had noticed you hadn't posted for a while, thought you must be busy with your new kitchen or on holiday. Sorry to hear youre still not feeling 100%.

    Furry the nesties ae extremely easy to use. I have avoided ordering more today cos if they are late delivering I will be on holiday and the postie just sticks everything behind the bin. My grand-daughter (6 on tues) has been using thr embossing folders this morning
