A surprisingly nice day!

I know I haven't been blogging daily for a while, but the past few days seem to have yielded some nice photos and more craft work than normal so I thought I would try and blog more regularly. Today, although it was a work day, I had no meetings so I was able to come home at lunchtime and work from home in the afternoon. Despite Alex being around, which was lovely, I did manage to get all my work done, so it worked very well from both angles. It was very special to spend that extra time with him. Sadly he wasn't so well today...he didn't sleep well last night and has been a bit more sensitive and grumpy than usual. I did manage to get some lovely giggles out of him this evening though during our special 'Mummy playtime'.
I know I was supposed to be making Christmas cards after Alex went to bed, but I got a little sidetracked and made a bookmark and card instead...actually that isn't fair...I did manage to make a further 8 Christmas cards as well! The bookmark shown above is similar to the ATCs I made yesterday with the same background and music stamped on it on both sides, then one side has flowers and the quote and the other side Autumn leaves and a quote. The photos are from before I laminated it, which worked perfectly. I think that I will be making some of these for Christmas presents this year.
The card is based on sketch #39 at CPS, and is for Shiela and Paul, who gave birth to Katie about 2 weeks ago. This is for me to send to them with Katie's present as I have already sent a proper card. I am quite pleased with the doodling on the bottom of this and the way the teddy bear stamp fitted perfectly. The doodling also makes this card relevant for the Scrummy Stash Cafe blog challenge this week. Anyway, that is all for now, so more soon.
