Too hot!

It is ridiculous isn't it, but it seems impossible for work to get the air conditioning right...when it is winter they blast us with cold air and now it is sunny we are being blasted with heat!  I have been too hot for most of the day and wanting to be outside enjoying the sun instead of cooped up at work.  Never mind it is the weekend now so Alex and I can play outside all day! That said, this evening he wanted to pose in his sunglasses and Spiderman T-shirt and then play with playdoh...I will get to play outside with him tomorrow instead!
Crafting wise I have made a leaving card for a technician who is going to another university to do a PhD. She isn't into girly girl things and loves cats so I thought I would use my new stamp (free with this months craft stamper) and the black, white and one other colour theme from Magical Crafts.  I followed this weeks CCT sketch which I loved and as the card has flowers on, I think it fits this weeks PTW theme. 
As the inside is going to be signed by lots of people I made an insert which is sewn into the card so people can sign on both sides and to prevent it being too plain I decorated this both sides as well so it fits with the 'inside out' challenge by crafty cardmakers. This is the very centre...kept relatively plain so that lots of people can sign it.
I also made a vintage ATC which followed the Kaboodle Doodle monochrome challenge (pink is my colour this time), the CCC bloom and charm challenge, the Pollycraft 'summer blooms' as I always think of pink blooms in summer and the Lots to do 'stamped collage' challenge as although I didn't just use stamping, the basis of this is a stamped collage with just an addition of flowers, ribbon and charms.  The stamps I used are Crafty Individuals and Tapestry. Finally I took inspiration from the Pile it on photograph challenge, using the pale pink damasc chairs as my inspiration. I would love to know what you all think of these creations.  Have a great weekend and enjoy the nice weather.
