Happy its Friday

Friday and what a relief! I am so tired that I have been completely brain dead all day...fortunately it didn't affect the experiment I was running. Alex is also very tired and is starting to express his frustration in not getting what he wants when tired by throwing things or hitting people (mostly me) as well as crying lots. It is the battle of the terrible twos I am afraid, but at least for most of the time we have fun together. He has discovered that he likes drinking from a little water bottle as it makes him feel big. A few accidents do occur, but as it is only water it doesn’t really matter. We also had a lovely time this evening dancing and jumping round together to Offenbach's music which Alex loves. I am pleased to report that Gran is now on a portable Vacuum dressing which means that she can start her physio and hopefully get back to full fitness again, although it is going to be a long hard uphill struggle. Crafting wise over the past few days I have made a couple of cards. This one was for Gran following the CPS sketch and using an image taken from a charity card I was sent, K&Co paper in the background and a Hero Arts stamp. This next card followed the sketch from sketch Saturday and fits with two other challenges as well…the black and white challenge for cupcake craft challenges and the my favourite things challenge for PTW as black and white are a favourite combination of mine and I used my favourite Martha Stewart edge punch. I used papermania background paper and brads, angel kiss flowers, and American Crafts rub-ons. The stamped image was from a swap on the CM&PC forum a while ago. Have a great weekend everyone.

Sorry to hear about the terrible twos, my twins are 19 now and still have the odd moment! rarely though, so I am very lucky.

I think that the black and white card is fabulous- it has got my cardmaking head flowing- lovely work.

Such pretty cards! The roses are stunning and I love the black and white card! Awesome!

Glad I am past the terrible twos with my children but now I move on to a grandson. He just turned one, but he's definitely at the two stage!
