Park-life!

We have spent much of this weekend in the park...I took the stabilisers off Alex's bike to see how he got on without them.  The answer was not great...I have to be his balance while running like mad and holding onto the back of the seat.  I am sure he will get it eventually but in the meantime my back hurts! 
The other thing we have been doing is playing with Alex's new gymnastics ribbon.  He has been using them at Kings camp this week and really wanted his own, so for working hard we went out and got him one.  It is a bit long for him, but he loves it!  It was such fun to see him playing with it, making shapes and then getting tangled up in it.
I have had some time for crafting as well this weekend and made this card to fit with the Less is More challenge of 'tearing'.  I tore three layers of coredinations card in varying shades of pink, and stamped the litte girls in black directly onto the top layer.  The patterning of the card means that the stamp doesn't leave an even impression adding to the vintage feel.  To finish it off I edged the creamy tan coloured card with some pink distress ink and the vintage friendship stamp.  I am also entering this card into Kaboodle Doodles 'all about friendship', Pixie Dust 'Pink', Freshly brewed 'rubber stamps only' and Speedy Fox 'friendship'.  That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
Love,
Caro

I'm so sorry that I'm late in visiting this week, but I have been on a wonderful cruise to Norway where I didn't have very good Internet coverage!
Thanks so much for your lovely contribution!
