March Release Teaser Time Day 2

Sorry I'm a little bit late this morning, for once I actually have a valid reason for my tardiness...although I shouldn't be too pleased about that, what with the reason being a trip to the minor injuries department with Jasmine, who almost lost a fingernail 5 minutes into her school day!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Sunday, I hope you're having a lovely relaxing weekend!  Dean is simultaneously ironing the children's uniform and helping them with their homework, ready for school tomorrow...he's use to sitting back and just giving all the orders at work so I figure it makes a nice change for him - I'm all heart aren't I?! ;) LOL

Here are a couple of cards I made last week...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Baby Shower', 'It's Your Birthday' & 'Laugh Out Loud' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Baby Shower Die Collection' & 'It's Your Birthday Die Collection'

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Sketched Blooms' & 'Fabulous Fuchsias'

I had better rejoin the family before it dawns upon Dean that there are no benefits whatsoever from being married to me! lol  Thank you for taking time out of your weekend to pay me a visit, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! :D xoxo

Thank You For Being Kind

I managed to get a few cards made yesterday but I am really struggling to take half decent photographs of them!  I fleetingly considered (as I often do) investing in a SLR (is that what they're called?  I have no idea lol) but even the entry level cameras and lenses are out of my budget so I guess I'll just muddle on with my cheap point and shoot for the time being...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Simple Silhouettes' & 'Thank You' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Simple Silhouettes Die Collection'

Better start on dinner for the children, the food won't microwave itself now will it? ;) LOL xoxo

May All Your Dreams Come True

I though it was about time I posted something on my poor neglected blog!  Not entirely happy with this card, but I suppose when you 'force' yourself to stamp, the results aren't always that pleasing ;) lol...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Dandelion Dreams'

The children are on half term break and I am without a car (loooong story) which is proving to be tricky!  Luckily my new car is being delivered tomorrow (Dean finally caved in a couple of months ago!), and not a moment too soon because cabin fever has well and truly set in and if I hear 'Mummy I'm bored' one more time I think I may lose the plot completely lol

Happy Tuesday, I hope you have a wonderful week :) xxx
