Family Sunday!

Despite still suffering with our coughs and colds we have had a lovely weekend.  Yesterday Alex and I had a forshortened trip to the park when the heavens opened and it hailed on us so we beat a hasty retreat home!  Today we went to Tim's brother's house in Kennilworth where we had a wonderful time with the whole family. Alex had a great time playing on the keyboard,
then out in the garden with his cousin Tom,
whilst the rest of the family lazed around after a yummy lunch!
Of course, no family visit would be complete without a bit of wrestling and general rough and tumble...especially with Grandpa Pete!
Crafting wise I made these two cards following the CCCB challenge of 2 identicle cards, one in lilacs and the other in blues.  These also fit with this weeks Less is More 'punches or die cuts' (in my case 2 different flower punches, and a leaf punch), SCSC 'Bingo' (Swirls, flowers, pearls), CCT 'Flower power'.
I also made this tag, just to experiment with some distress inks and masking techniques.  I am entering this one into CCC 'entwined',TioT 'tag with hearts & flowers', TT 'entwined', Flutterby Wednesday 'Anything with wings', SSS 'Tag it' and All sorts 'Anything goes'.  That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
