Rob's day out racing

The Fiat racing club closed Sainsbury Road in Pirongia for the day.  A perfect road for a hill climb with straights many twisty turns!

My Friend Christine even had a go with Blair at the wheel!  She loved it.

Rob in his Fiat Tipo.  
Christine and I Cheered the boys on!

Blair and his Fiat Uno.

Coming back down the hill after the racing.
One poor driver didn't quite make it and was saved a nasty roll down the bank by a piece of good old number 8 wire.

The old and the New

One of the challenges Chantell and I had recently was to use our oldest and newest stamps to make 3 cards and this is what we came up with.

Chantell rotated a corner stamp to make this cool design.  The photo doesn't do it justice as it sparkled with glitter too.

I wanted to use a card design I hadn't tried before.  This extendable insert was fun to make.

I Brought this thank you stamp about 15 years ago and was one of the first I purchased.

Summer is here!

So Now that summer is here we get to enjoy all the fresh fruit!  I love strawberries and got a big surprise when I opened a punnet recently to find the biggest strawberry I think I have ever seen.  It was sweet and juicy too!

Flowers are out so I've planted some pretty flowers to grow at the end of the drive.

Here is Ayla and I with my beautiful lilies.(Almost taken out by ravenous snails!)
