Morning ......

Just back from the school run and mboyis it cold out there. Slippy too lots of black ice on the roads and pavements.
What's on the agenda today ? Well more colouring of valentines images and then off to make them up. I love the card I posted the other day with the verse on, so I'm going to do some more of those I think.
Back to work on Thursday evening/night. Never mind at least I've had a good rest and some crafty time. Got a mamogram on Thursday too. Makes me laugh, I'm too young for them to do anything about my arthritis but old enough to have a mamogram !
I'd better get on and get some breakfast before I start work on my projects. Have a lovely day whatever you're up to.

Well it happened ...

It snowed ! Although it looks like it's disappearing now. Just on the school website waiting to see if it's losed. Am hoping not as the weather really isn't that bad here. Don't think DS will look at it like that lol.
Well his wellies are on standby and ready to go lol.

Hubby is off again today but unfortunately he's got to mend the handbrake cable. Bet he wishes he'd done it yesterday when it was dry. Oh hum never mind.
Me ? Well I need to get some Valentines images coloured and made up ready for the MIL's shop and I got some new digi images the other day that I'd like to do so on with those.

Better go and get the boy up and ready for school as there's nothing on the website yet.

Back later.

That's ..........

3 days in a row now that I've been on here. I'm amazed at myself and I'l bet there'l be 1 or 2 others that are too.

As promised here's DS's birthday card, which he loved. It's great image by Mo Manning for boys of all ages.
Coloured using Sansodor and crayons I've tried to make it as grundgey as possible lol. Boys ! The paper is Well worn by SU, the embellies are by Crafwork cards.
The first thing he did was go and play on his PS 2 with his new games. They grow up so fast these days lol.

Well I'm off to finish that nasty "H" word while everyone's out and then hopefully I'l get some crafting done before we have a houseful later.

Brrrrrrrr ... it's sooooo cold

today !

I know they've forcast snow but it really is so cold.

I've got a busy few days ahead as my baby is 9 tomorrow. Yes 9 ! Where does the time go ? Have got his card to make, using a Mo image bet you can't guess which one ? Sainsbury's for his Mario birthday cake, challenge cards to make and need to do some stock cards for the MIL's shop. Yes that's still going strong. Am so proud of her as she does it on her own.
Hubby is off but laid on the sofa suffering. Think it might be man flu lol.Am hoping he'l be coming to the supermarket with me but doubt it really lol.
My boy is having a few friends over for tea tomorrow so have got to sort food out for that. Think that's going to be easy as he's asked for chicken nuggets and chips ! Don't suppose we'l see much of them as I've relented and bought him the game he's been after for ages for his PS2. Il whisper it's one of the COD games. Shhhh don't tell him !

Well that's enough of my ramblings for now. Back later with cards, cake and probably more ramblings LOL . Yes it's plural i wrote cards !

Kyle. It was his birthday at the weekend and this image always reminds me of him !

The image is a Mo Manning and in true 1st proper post time I've forgotten to open her blog so that I can link it. Sorry Mo x
He's coloured using pencils and Sansodor which I love using. It's very plain and simple but he loved it. Mainly because I put his name on it lol.

I'm off work for a week so it's crafting all the way for me and I can't wait. I've missed it soooo much. My room is a mess but I really don't care 'cos it's my space !

Off to get some challenge cards done. Back soon.
