Mum and dad

Happy Mother's Day to those celebrating here in the UK I hope you have had an enjoyable day. I was woken with breakfast in bed and then handmade cards and chocolates from my boys. The boys then went to rugby for the day and I spent a lovely day with my mum.

I have a page to share with you today that I took over Christmas. I am 33 years old and I have never seen my mum and dad cuddle up on the sofa together. It has always been dad in his chair and mum her end of the sofa with the light on so she can knit or read.

I'm going through a pink and gold phase at the moment and I adore the papers. I'm sure they came from my like for ever kit. It's a basic sketch but I think the embellishments really add to it.

Mum and dad have been together over 45 years and I hope that when Jason and I have been together that long we are still cuddled up :-)

Thanks for looking

A quick birthday card

Good evening I hope you've had an enjoyable Saturday.

I went to my local crop and managed to get 7 pages completed. Whilst at crop my son Jake called me asking where the card for his friends party he was attending this afternoon. I had completely forgot so I told him to come down to me and will have one ready. I had some echo park papers on my desk that I was using for a page so I threw this together. Luckily Nancy who attends our crop had bought her cricut machine so I cut out the star and numbers. I think it looks okay for a 5 minute card.

I was slightly concerned that the card might be a bit childish, but I'm sure 14 years old boys don't really look at the card and are more interested in what's inside ;)

Thank you for looking and I will be back tomorrow.

Last day of school

Hello there I hope you are looking forward to a nice weekend. I have crop so I have been busy today getting things ready. I am also taking part in Calvinball over Here
It runs for a month and there are lots of challenges and the rules change throughout the month. My goal is to get 31 pages scrapped this month. I will be blogging daily throughout March so please keep popping back.

Here is a page I completed a few weeks ago. It was for Stuck?!sketches but I was too late to link it up. I have used some old papers from stampin' up and the die cutting is done with my silhouette cameo.

The photo is Joseph's last day at primary school. They all seem to have grown so much since July!

Thank you so much for visiting
