Lovely time.

It has been a great weekend, despite the mixed weather.  Yesterday started with Alex's street dance lesson followed by shopping, and then in the afternoon we went to Chatsworth Farm and adventure playground, making the most of the brilliant sunshine.
Alex had a great time on the playground, climbing round the fort, then playing with the water and sand.  Today we had a lovely church service (wonderful worship and great message) followed by family lunch before heading out to an indoor playarea to let Alex let off some steam.
I have even had some time for crafting which is just as well as it is time for another Quirky challenge!  Cazzy set the challenge this time which was 'monsters'. We have two sponsors this week, Dustin and Bugaboo.  I was given two stamps from Bugaboo to use and so combined them into one card for a little boy.  I coloured both images with promarkers and then cut out the second image (and the lone balloon from the first image) and decoupaged them with sticky pads. I used Nana's kids papers for the striped background and then embellished with gold peel offs.  I am therefore going to enter this card into Delicious Doodles 'use metal' and All sorts 'inspired by a song' (what's that coming over the hill? is it a monster?).
I also made this card for Less is More's challenge (choose any 3 of their past challenges: #41:leaves, #15:embossing, #6:off the edge) and will also be entering it into Simon Says stamp 'embossing' (one of the leaves is embossed), Penny's challenge 'shaped card', CCT 'different shape', DCM 'thank you'. That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
