Thursday 2 February 2012


Good afternoon every one. I have just got in from work and wow what a week I have had so far. Busy busy busy and to top that my son came in from school he handed me a letter about academic review day. He told me that he had been given his appointment at 3pm and knew I wouldn't be able to make it so he swapped with his friend for a 9 o'clock appointment so I could go with his dad. What he hadn't realised was the appointment was 9am and not pm. Oh well he tried his best I shall just have to try and get the morning off work. I could do with a rest any way.

Onto the card. I coloured the image last Sunday and have only just got around to putting the card together.
I wasn't sure about the papers at first but they have definitely grown on me.

The fabulously cute image is by Mo Manning. I am really pleased with the way she came out.
The papers were a stack that I found at the back of the draw. They are DCWV sticky back papers.

The tiny little bit of a die cut that you can see is a Memory Box boarder. I have to say they these dies are fast becoming one of my favourites.
I have coloured the image with copic's


Thanks for dropping by

This is gorgeous Jayne, I have that DCWV stack and I love it with the blue check I never would have thought of putting those together - genius! And I love the shape at the bottom too.
That was so sweet of your son to swap his time, hope you get your rest!
