Sunday 10 June 2012


It's been another busy weekend - all to do with karting!  Jacob, on Saturday, finished fourth (again!) in the Formula Bambino championship at Daytona Manchester.  And this morning Samuel had two practice sessions back to back (we are cruel parents!) and he smashed his personal best lap record and set a new time of 25.618 - you can have a read about it on their karting blog!  Feel free to leave them a comment - you could be the first!!  There are a few videos on the blog too so you can see how fast Samuel goes and the noise!  I'm now used to the smell of diesel lingering on me all day after we've been there for a few hours!

Anyway, back to earth and crafting!  Once again (I am still blaming the new Blogger layout!) I've not blogged the new release digi stamp from Jellypark!  It's this rather fab little robot who comes with a blank sentiment tile (I've handwritten the sentiment).  He's been coloured with Promarkers and I've used papers from Cosmo Cricket - Cogsmo along with my fab X Cut star dies.  I've just released that this card is the image that accompanies the digi stamp on the Jellypark website!!!

I don't know if you can see them, but I've made some fake black brads - a dot of black pen (either a fineliner or Sharpie marker) and then dab a dot of glossy accents over the top - quick and fab!!
