I can tell the world now...

that my daughter is in engaged....

I got a couple of texts from her while she was away on her cruise with her boyfriend, saying they were fine and having a lovely time (the weather was lush and they had been swimming and were having cocktails by the pool, nothing like rubbing it in, with our weather, lol) but last week hubby and I got a phone call, as she wanted us to be the first to know, she was engaged, lol...

I'm not really surprised, as a mum you know these things (in fact Gina and I were only discussing before they went, would they come home engaged, lol)...

It's been hard not telling people, but she wanted to do that when she got back, OK she did say I could tell my crafty friends, but thinking about it, I couldn't put it on my blog or on do-crafts, as I'm not sure who knows who, and it might have got back to my mum or Matt's family before they got home, and I felt it was for Sam and Matt to make the big announcement...

Hence the rush in getting a card done, as I wanted her to have it upon they're return, but of course we would be away in Dublin then, (we put up a few balloons, banners and left a bottle of bubbly for them before we left)...

Just a shame the house fell through before they went on holiday...
oh well...we'll have to start looking again, I've all the time in the world, what with planning a wedding, house hunting and of course Stevens transition year, lol... (at least it will keep me out of trouble, lol)


The card is Linen card, used the Divine swirl cuttlebug embossing folder, sizzix double heart and think the purl slider was from lakelands and the ribbon and mirror card form my stash... (would have like some crystals or stones in some of the swirls, but would you believe it, I have every colour except clear, lol... looks like I'm going to have to go shopping)...

Well we got back from out little break in Ireland a few hours ago, we're shattered, done lots of walking and come home for a rest and hopefully some dry weather, as it rained the whole time we were there, lol...
