Blog Update

I've had such a busy time this last week and finally the children have broken up today and I can breath a sigh of relief, well I will when the five 7 year old boys I have for a sleepover are all asleep.

I have had a very busy time with birthday cards and thank you cards and so am just going to do one major post I'm afraid.

The first is the cross stitch I did for OH's Great Aunt for her birthday.  It is many years since I did a cross stitch and this kit was kindly sent to me by the lovely Sarah from MSE.  My OH's Aunt bans us from buying her presents so OH always does her garden for her but I like to get her a little extra.  This year I can honestly say none of it was bought for her.  The kit was provided by Sarah, the frame won on school tombola and the box that it went in made with existing supplies.




The following card was a very quick card that I threw together.  I realised that I hadn't made a card for a friend of my daughters and thought I would have to resort to a bought one.  I couldn't face doing this and so had a rummage.  The inspiration was all taken from the butterfly chipboard stickers and I just raided my supplies for papers etc that went with it.  For a quick make I was very pleased with it.


The following are the birthday cards that I have so far made this week and I still have another three to go.





Lastly this is one of the Thank You cards I made for the teachers.  I love this image and sentiment that was sent to me again by the lovely Sarah, it was very apt for my DS's teacher who had had quite a stressful time with his Year 2 class in the last couple of weeks of term.  Very annoyingly I forgot to take photos of the other two cards I made, one of which I loved and was made with some of my lurverly papers.
