Ready for the weekend

I don't know why but I am really tired today and feel so ready for the weekend!  Alex is in great form so I am looking forward to spending some time with him.  Not sure what we are doing, but I am sure it will be fun as he is being very funny at the moment! 
Crafting wise I made this little thank you card for my parents following this weeks CPS sketch.  The shells were made with shrink plastic and the train stamp is from Stamps Away. I used distress inks for the two different backgrounds.  This card fits with the transport theme for creative craft, and the no die cuts or punches challenge for CTT.
I also made a scrapbook layout following this weeks Sketchy Thursday sketch.  The colours I used of blue and green fit with the CCC challenge, and as I have finally got round to scrapbooking Alex's 3rd Birthday for this page it also fits with the Meljen's Birthday challenge.  The journalling reads 'Presents in bed, new toys to play with and a chocolate smartie cake = one very happy Alex'.  That is all from me for now so have a good weekend everyone.
Love,
Caro
