Where did that week go?  I cant believe it is Wednesday already and time for a nosey rounds lots of peoples crafting spaces via Julia's blog.  My desk is in the process of clearing up one project and about to start another.

On it you can see my dirty paint water (I had already spilt some of this), my cleaned brushes, stamps that need putting away and various other bits and pieces that I used for my most recent project. At the back instead of a mug of tea there is a large glass of diet coke (too hot for tea!)

This weekend we celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary by eating far too much and sitting in the garden with our feet in the paddling pool! 
We went out and had an extremely special afternoon tea - so much food we had to take the cakes home in a doggy bag for later!
I have been keeping up with the index card a day challenge this week as well - the following are a few of the cards i have made.  I am using this as an experiment to try different techniques and things i would not normally have the courage to do which is fun.

I will leave you with a photo of Alex cooling off in the paddling pool after school yesterday - wearing his school shirt and swimming shorts!
I hope that you have a wonderful week.

Happy belated Wedding Anniversary Caro, what a wonderful way to share that special day and to dangle your feet into a cool paddling pool at the end of it with cake to spare.. can there be no better day?
Your Index cards are very creative, such a great size to play around with.. especially for doodles.

What better way to cool off than in a paddling pool, whether sitting in in shorts or just dangling feet in.
Love your Anniversary tea - looks scrummy and bringing the cakes home is a great idea.
Fab icads too - still haven't done any more.
Hugs, Neet 9 xx

I’ve been complaining about my gimpy keyboard for awhile, but my mouse has always worked great. That is, until today. I had to buy a new mouse just so I could maneuver between blogs. That’s why I’m really late visiting.

Happy 17th anniversary. You two look happy even after all these years. Wonderful that you have such a great relationship.

I LOVE your ICADs. You put mine to shame. I want to know how you created that middle one. It is fabulous, as they all are. This year, mine all contain at least one heart and I post mine every Monday. I'll be by to see yours, too. Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW from #3.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sorry Caro. I can't count, even though I have a math degree. I meant the SECOND ICAD.

Sarah Brennan said...

Hi Caro, it was our wedding anniversary last weekend too. Happy belated anniversary. Love the ICADs; so colourful and varied. Thanks for visiting already, the finished journal page is up on my blog now. Have a great week. Sarah #5

Julia Dunnit said...

Congratulations on your anniversary! And my word, how grown up Alex is looking! I love the Index cards and particularly the splash with Born to Create in it...very apt for you Miss Caro!

Happy anniversary - our 16th is coming up next month, but we'll probably forget like we usually do, LOL. Loving your index cards - Born To Create is my favourite. Cute photo of your son - I think he might need a bigger paddling pool! Have a lovely weekend! zsuzsa #23

Hi Caro!
Boy, putting feet or all in the wading pool sounds like a plan. I'm so tired of the heat/ humidity here. Congrats on your anniversary. The food looks very delicious!Creative Blessings! Kelly #39
