Well its past midnight, so that makes it my mums birthday - Happy Birthday Mum - Youre the best!!!!!!!!! Have a lovely day! I made these two cards for her, its safe to show them, because she will be in bed now and by the time she hits blogland in the morning she wouldve opened them. I used these stamps, as I know that she loves them and the one from me, is how I see her in few years time, wanderind round her garden with pot plants (dont know about the bunchies though!!) The other one is from my dad and it reminds me of them both when I look at photos of when they were younger. My dad had thick brown hair and my mum was all little and thin, and still is.
For the first one, I had a go at a frame card - turned out ok for a first attempt, added some blooms, inked hearts, and a bit of doodling. Popped a message on the back, to cover up the messy bits.
The second one is just a standard card, with some new ribbon from my shop and some yummy crochet flowers, that should be coming into stock soon. I love texture on cards. I am not a paper stroker, as I know many of you are, I much prefer ribbon, velvet and other materials that are soft to touch.
Poppi had a great time at Pre-school this week - she is very proud of her school uniform and wants to wear it every day now. I picked her up on Friday and she burst into tears. There I was thinking "what have they done to her, why is she so upset?" and the first thing she says to me is "Please my not go home mummy" Children eh? Still I am really happy that she is enjoying spending time with children of her own age. On my way to pick her up I had to pass Rileys school and I knew that the whole school were doing a sponsored run, around the sports field for Sport relief, as I turned the corner in the car, I thought "I bet wont be able to see him" He is only tiny and amongst 100 children, would be difficult to spot. To my joy, he was running right alongside the fence. He didnt see me and Im glad he didnt, because the sheer determination in his little rosie face, to keep up with the older children was overwhelming. It bought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. I shall remember that brief moment forever. I am so very proud of them both. When I eventually picked Riley up he was really pleased to tell me that he had managed 8 laps, but apparently he did fall over on lap 6, because his legs stopped working. "Well done" I said, as I looked down at his feet. "In fact really well done" I thought, considering he had his plimsolls on the wrong feet. aaawww!!! What a trooper...
TFL have a great weekend
