Sunny Friday

Well the end of the week is here and what a glorious day it has been with brilliant sunshine and blue skies, just a shame I have been stuck inside marking exams!  I am hoping we get nice weather over the weekend so we can get out in the garden and enjoy it.  There isn't a lot to show you in todays post as I have spent what little time I have in continuing the great study tidy.  The next set of book shelves have been sorted and the books are now in sets and in order with less stuck on the shelves in front of them (always a bonus if you actually want to find a book LOL!).  However, the pile of 'stuff' in front of the shelves seems to have grown since the wiring was fitted in our study (I don't know how or why) so there is still a mountain to climb in here.
That said I got fed up of tidying and decided to make a little card following this weeks Colour create challenge of black, white and pink. I decided that my new (unused) cherry blossom stamp would work, combined with other oriental symbols.  I even attempted to draw some words (Spring Love) and a crane silhouette (don't laugh!), so this fits with the DCM 'draw a bird' challenge, and the spring challenge from Tuesday Throwdown. That is all from me for now. I will be back as usual on Sunday evening. In the meantime have a great weekend everyone.
