Good afternoon all.Hope you have had a lovely weekend so far.We went for a walk this morning with the dog,2hrs later we came home and gave her a bath.Me,hubby and the dog were worn out but the kids are still full of energy.Sam wanted to play football,i on the other hand could of just sat down and gone to sleep!!!!
I must be getting old...LOL!!!
I made this card yesterday.I`ve had such a busy 1st week back,meeting all the new children,trying to remember all the names.I think it`s always hard getting back into the swing of things.Then on the 2nd day back,we had our assessor in.She is such a lovely lady,but i hate the thought of someone watching me and making notes.Your always scared of saying or doing it wrong.I was like that in my driving test though.I would be fine with my instructor and just go to pot when the examiner got in the car!!!
Anyway,my card is using the adorable house mouse stamps.The sketch is actually from just magnolia blog.
The papers are papermania,the flowers are from my MS punch,swirls are Marianne d.Circle was cut with my nesties and i distressed all the edges with faded jeans inkpad.Pearls are again from the hobby house and gems are from papermania in the henbury lane collection.Phew!! Have i covered it all?By Joe i think i may  have!!!
Ok, onto challenges:-
Papersundaes:-min of 3 embellies.
Stamp something:-Spots and stripes.
Oldie but a goodie:-New beginnings.
A spoonfull of sugar:-anything with an animal on it.
Simple doodles:-Colour me with dots.
Well enjoy the rest of sunday guy`s,i`m of to play football with Sam as i did promise.Wish me luck,i need it with his rules.I wont score too many goals as mine don`t seem to count!!!Funny that,the rules change when i get a goal!!!!
