The BESTEST present ever yesterday! by Vicki Avcin
Having had a really bad week last week, I so needed something
to cheer me up and what a better 'something than turning around on my chair while at the computer yesterday to see her standing at
the back door!!!
She's just had a 2 week holiday in Thailand and told me she started
back at work yesterday morning (Monday). As she often does when
she's driving home, she?ll ring me for a chat (on the Bluetooth) and
we'd been chatting for about 20 minutes when I heard a noise and said
to her 'What was that'? and she said she'd just bumped the
That was when I just leant back and swung round on my
chair and saw her!! I got such a shock that I was sitting staring at her
thinking I'm seeing things when she said 'So you going to unlock the
door and let me in'
Hell yeah of course I am!!! Then I find out she
actually doesn't go back to work till next Monday, so she's planned this
and never said a word!! She came bearing
gifts for us too from her holiday in Thailand. Only one problem?
she didn't bring one of those gorgeous big cats that she posted
pictures of her sitting with its head in her lap and cuddling. (Tiger).
The photo is of the pair of us after coming home from dinner last night.
The card promo is of one of a series of my Black and White Design Set,
why not check them all out. Quick and easy to make but look so
sophisticated when made up. Thanks to the cardmakers who?ve made
some of them up and done an awesome job with them.

Bob Bingo Winner & Important Game Change
This weeks FULL HOUSE Winner is Billie McDonald from Australia. Billie managed to claim the FULL HOUSE in record time. Only six other bingo players have claimed faster. Well done Billie enjoy your £100 Winnings.
We have had a lot of negative feedback from Bingo Players who cannot check their cards through the night while they are sleeping, they wake up in the morning to find that their numbers have been called and someone else has claimed the prize. They get very frustrated especialy when they only have a few numbers left on their card. For this reason we are changing the rules to help resolve this problem. Instead of calling a number every two hours we will call a number every four hours this means the chances of missing any numbers while you are asleep will be halved. And at the most you should only miss one or two numbers while you are sleeping - Big Hugs Crafty Bob xx
Rock Eagle Effigy Mound, Putnam County, GA, USA by Diane Hannah
A local hidden treasure is what I found here in Putnam County. A beautiful 4H campground with lakes, cabins, and tons of history.
The eagle mound is believed to have been constructed between 1,000 and 3,000 years ago. The tower was added to site for visitors to view the eagle from above. It is 102 feet long from the head to the tail, and 120 feet wide from wing tip to wing tip, and what an amazing site. I can't wait to go back to see more of the park and hike on some of the trails, maybe even do a little fishing!
I thought it fitting to promote a bird card with this newsfeed. The choice is a lovely bird on a romantic bouquet of flowers in a vintage teacup. There are three color choices for the teacup each with a different bouquet and bird.
