Hair cut!

This has been a busy weekend, but for the most part has been a lot of fun! Yesterday morning Tim gave Alex a much needed haircut, we did the shopping, washing, cleaning etc and then in the afternoon we went round to the house of one of Alex's friends from nursery.  Since the boys are at different schools they don't meet up much, but they have a great time when they do!  Today we went to church in the morning where the service was lovely; a mixture of traditional and modern worship music, a good message and some nice chats.  This afternoon we went to friends where Alex pretended to put on a kickboxing/karate show for us and had fun wrestling with me.
Crafting wise I have made this card following the sketch from this weeks Less is More. The main image is a stamp which came free with Crafty Stamper ages ago and I have actually paper pieced it.  Not sure how well that shows up on this photo though.  I stamped the image on yellow, pale orange (the centre) and darker orange (some of the rays), cut them out and put them all together.  Tim found it highly amusing and said it would have been quicker just to colour it in that way - he was right, it probably would have been LOL! I am also entering this into Delightful challenges 'paper piecing', and Crazy4Challenges 'Paper piecing' challenges.
I also made this scrapbook following last weekends sketch from Creative Scrappers.  The layout features my son and his best friend from nursery having fun in the park and in the garden. The papers were all scraps from Basic Grey sets. This also fits with paperplay 'monochrome + ribbon', Simon says stamp 'anything goes', Aud sentiment 'anything goes', and Speedy Fox 'blues' challenges.
Finally I made a series of simple thank you cards to send to Alex's friends. I used a digital stamp designed by the very talented Spyder and coloured them using promarkers. No two dragons have been coloured the same and I used the photo inspiration from Freshly Brewed to make them. That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
