Grand Day Out!

What a long day yesterday, I didn't realise that 4.30 happened twice in one day!!!

Anyone who knows me will not believe where I went yesterday, I have 2 fanatical Man Utd supporters and one Liverpool supporter (who was keen to see them lose) in the house and we were lucky enough to be given 4 free tickets to the match yesterday. Barry is never one to be late, so although KO wasn't til 12.45 he wanted to leave early, we were up at 4.30 and set off at 5.30 arriving in Manchester about 9.30. After a look round the Mega Store, we ventured to a local shopping mall, where I discovered 2 craft shops, although shock horror I didn't buy much (a couple of papers, football themed), even the boys were surprised when I emerged quite quickly and nearly empty handed!
We arrived back at the stadium to see the players warming up, the atmosphere was amazing, even for a non-football lover like me, the time flew by and before I knew it the match had finished. As it was a draw, it meant Man Utd had won the Premiership and were presented with the trophy.
I had a fantastic day, but still don't understand the off side rule, despite Barry trying to explain it to me several times today - think he preferred it when I wasn't interested! We got home about 8pm, I was in bed asleep by 9.30, never been to bed so early, especially on a Saturday night!

Spent today avoiding the rain, catching up on food shopping, washing & ironing, and a quick visit to The Range to buy that DCWV paper stack I needed, only to discover they've got new stock in and there are about another 4 stacks I NEED! I haven't managed any crafting today, so here's one of the cards I made on Thursday and not yet posted on here.

The image is from the 'Mary & Friends' set from Woodware, coloured with PMs. I've just ordered some more of these from Joanna Sheen , only £1.59 each, the best price I've seen and with free delivery.
The paper is a K & Co one, I think called Sweet & Sparkly. Glitter flowers are from Craft Time, sentiment - Cuddly Buddly, punches - SU!, lilac and white base card from Paper Mill. I love the pearls that come on those little strips of adhesive, no more faffing about trying to get the gems evenly spaced....

Hope to catch up on challenges tomorrow.
