Its the weekend!

Are you one of those people who looks forward to the weekend? Well I certainly am, and especially this weekend as I am going to see one of my best friends for the first time in far too long! I am so excited and can’t wait! Alex also gets enthusiastic about the weekend calling the days ‘Mummy and Daddy at home days’ and he loves the fact that we get to do different things, always asking us where are we going today, what are we going to do? Needless to say I am very happy that it is Friday evening!

Crafting wise I have only managed to make one card over the past couple of days. This is a leaving card for a girl at work and for the card I combined the Whiff of Joy stamp of the girl sitting down with her mug of tea and a Penny Black stamp of a mouse looking like he is about to give her a flower (she really likes animals, especially mice!). I used Hot off the Press papers which were scraps from some of my scrapbook layouts, and followed this weeks sketch from The Pixie Cottage challenge. This card also fits with the lovely ladies theme from the Crazy challenge, the jewels theme from MTTC, the baby blue challenge from Crafty Creations, the three or more patterned papers challenge from Fresh Brewed (the third patterned paper is under the ribbon- it is subtle but the pattern is there!), Simon says stamp 'anything goes' challenge and DYSU 'layers' challenge. That is all from me for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
