Well hello ladies and blog friends!  A very good evening to all my followers, you are all wonderful - especially my new followers, I do hope you know what waffles you are letting yourselves in for!  I have a qualification in waffling, rambling and warbling on and on and on!


I might not have posted for a while, but I have been making cards for my DT Challenge blogs and they will be on my blog in July.  Talking of DT challenges I have some excellent news - I am now on the DT for One Stitch at a Time, they have weekly Challenges so I do hope to see you over there!  I really am pleased about this,  there have been some lovely Challenges on there!  Looking forward to their future posts.

Here I am today posting two little Twinchies, this lovely Challenge was closing ........ but Sylv has taken it over - yay!!!!!!   I know my entries have been left a little late but it is open until 30th June so you still have time to do a little 'Summer at the Seaside' Twinchie.    Please help keep this challenge going, it is lovely and it would be such a shame if it closes down.  You can find them here -

Here is my first entry - 

I saw the two surfboards and thought of the time Graham and I went to Perranporth in Cornwall on his Lambretta - yup we were Mods - stop guffawing Sue (Ollie's Mam)!  Anyway he tried his hand at surfing, wearing all the gear of course, but the pic I have of him in his wet-suit makes him look like a tadpole on stilts - lol!!!  Bless him 6' 3" and 12 stone of muscle - well knots in cotton.  Coo I can still see him now.  His scooter did have about 40 mirrors on it at one point but they were pinched when we parked in a cinema car-park - boo hoo!   I'm not sure whether to post two pics of us in Cornwall outside the caravan we had hired.  Let me know what you think - if you are in favour I will post the pics for you to chuckle at.

Anyway I will close this and do a separate post for my next Twinchie - no waffles though, just a Twinchie - well perhaps a little waffle (Jenny L is catching up on the waffle stakes)!!!

Hugs to you and thank you for any comments you might like to leave on my blog.

  8. Hi Sue,
    me wonderful little waffling mate. It's amazing what you can get on a Twinchie. So much lovely work in this little gem of a card. I love the beach scene, and those surf boards are fab.
    Now you have painted a picture in my mind of your wonderful scooter, and those lovely mirrors.
    Can't wait to see the pictures of you both. Graham sounds like hunk from your description. lol.
    I have just had an image come to mind of that Bertoli advert where the ladies are on the beach watching a young man change out of his trunks. I could just see you, me and Sue J doing that, and having such a giggle. lol.
    Getting back to the scooter having it's mirrors pinched, reminds me of my daughter who had her car stolen, and at the time she collected lots! and lots! of Tigers. The police found it a couple of hours later, and guess what minus the Tigers.
    Well it's now officially true I am catching up in the waffling takes after this War and Peace.
    Oh by the way congrats on your new D T position.
    Have a wonderful crafty weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
