Sniffle sniffle cough cough!!!!

Yes I have finally succumbed to the cold which has been flying around our house and today I feel carppy!
Still I have managed a little crafting, which is fab!!

Here is a recent card using some more kanban toppers which were reduced at my local craft store.
Simple card again but effective I think!

Ok so I made some cards the other day using some sheets from Kanban and while I like the images I am not too sure of the cards.

Any opinions would be gratefully received!!!!!

It has still been busy here this week so far. Harrys results from his throat swab came back as positive so he too is on antibiotics now!!!
Good news though is that he has been picked as a prefect - very proud of him :)

Just wanted to say thankyou for the lovely comments left recently - they do mean alot!!!!

What a mad day!!!!

It really has been one of those days today. Actually one of those weeks if I am quite honest.

George came down with a stinker of a cold on Friday afternoon and no amount of dosing him up could prevent an ear infection on Monday. He has been a poorly boy but this morning he was up and in his uniform ready for school. I had my reservations but let him go and well he lasted an hour.
An hour later I then had a call from Harry's school telling me that my oldest had a sore throat and was quite unwell too!!!!! Following a trip to the docs it was confirmed that while his tonsils were swollen they weren't infected although they took a swab to confirm.
They are now both in bed dosed up to the hilt and we will see what tomorrow brings with them.

My tumble dryer has also packed up this afternoon - actually it started smoking which I don't think is a good sign :o) As finances are more than a little tight at the mo I am going to see if I can make do without one for a little while. Ha ha ha could be interesting!!!!!

In between all of the dramas today I have managed to make a couple of quick cards which I will take pics of tomorrow. A couple are Christmas cards - I know I know!!!!!
Anyway here is another Gorjuss girl card to show you. I really do love the images!!!

Blimey a month since I updated!!!

Well alot of stuff has been going on (as per usual) but I think that I have got my head screwed back on and thinking straight at last.
A few decisions have been made regarding some relationships in my life and while sometimes I do get sad about it I have to realise that myself and my three boys come first. Our happiness and well being is my priority and now that I have laid to rest some issues I can concentrate on that.

Right enough of the heavy doom and gloom - have I been crafting?
Well yes card making but no scrapbooking unfortunately. A couple of weeks ago I came across some decoupage sheets on offer which featured the Gorjuss girls and I instantly fell in love with them. They are cute but not in a twee way and I want more!!!!!!!!!
Here is one of the cards I have made featuring the girls and some paper flowers which I must purchase again.

One thing which has also taken place in our family was my little munchkins 8th birthday.

This boy has the ability to make me howl with laughter and also brings tears to my eyes with the lovely things he says.
He is an old soul who has sooo been here before. He loves his mates and his big bro and is very loyal but get on the wrong side of him and you know it!!!!!

He is very much a boys boy but loves his Momma and lots of cuddles to whoever needs them.
He loves rugby and getting dirty but also still likes to watch Peppa Pig (secretly with me!!)

Belated Happy Birthday to my little man xxxxxx
