Although we are all tired we have had a fairly busy weekend. One of Alex's closest friends from nursery had his 4th birthday party yesterday at an indoor play area near us. The boys had a wonderful time climbing round the indoor play area before sliding down the party slide to the special party room where the food was followed by a mini disco.
Alex loved every minute (apart from one very hard bump to his head) and was so excited and over tired that he found it hard to sleep last night!
Today we went to see my in laws down in Kennilworth. As the sun was shining we let the boys run off some steam in the garden where they sat in the hedges,
and clambered through the trees to their little den, while we sat happily inside drinking tea and chatting. It was lovely to spend some time with the family and to hear everyones news.
Needless to say I haven't had a lot of time for crafting this weekend, although I did make a couple of clean and simple cards. This first one is for the less is more 'pastel colours' challenge and used a Lavinia flower stamp, which I stamped using versacolour inks, and a Penny Black sentiment stamp. The strip of background paper was free from a magazine. This card also fits with the Crafty Creations 'feminine birthday in blue and green', Aud sentiments 'birthday', 'blue and green flowers' from Cupcake inspirations and Stampin' for the weekend 'spring' challenges.
I also made a little notelet using a computer based sentiment for the first time...this took me ages to position right, and then I realised that I had been looking at the wrong side of the stamp, so it didn't turn out quite how I planned! I added highlights to the flower and leaves with my sakura stardust pen (not sure how well it shows up in the picture!) and so this fits with this weeks One Layer Wednesday challenge. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
