Hello, I'm back!!

It seems to be a monthly occurrence that I have some sort of problem with my Internet, and it is really starting to test my patience!! This time I have been without access for nearly a week, so for the few people that follow my blog, sorry!

Life has been fairly busy, Bryce also got the chicken pox and has been home for the last week. I have enjoyed having him at home, and it was much easier nursing him than Jamie. His scabs are starting to fall off and he is back to school tomorrow, for the final week. I can't believe the December holidays are a week away, can't wait!!

The card I am posting it one I created just for fun, and really enjoyed doing. It is simple, but I was quite happy with the way it turned out. The stamps I used are by Hero Arts, and the pp is from a pad of K & Company paper that I have had for ages, and use all the time, I am going to be really sad when it's finished!
Enjoy the week ahead, it is going to be a full one for us, gala on Monday, I have a birthday brunch on Tuesday, Prize-giving on Wednesday, class parties on Thursday and then Break-up day on Friday. Hope you all have a good one.

Speak to you soon (hopefully!) LOL

My Boys!

Just wanted to post a quick photo today. I took this a few days ago, and was so pleased with the way it came out. I love my boys SO much, they complete me in every way.
I will try & post something stamping related in the next few days.

Good morning, lovely Monday morning here in Dundee!

The Yippee! title has a double meaning today, it's the sentiment on the card I am posting, as well as the fact that Jamie seems to be on the mend. I am so relieved! It has been a long week, and it is so good to see him smiling and happy again. He still isn't eating or drinking as well as I would like, but hopefully that will improve soon.

The card I am posting today is the one I made for the November RSA birthday ladies. It is a bit different to the type of card I usually make, no cutesy image on it, but I really enjoyed creating it(them, I made 4!). The stamps I used are by Hero Arts, and it's also a colour I don't use very often, purple!! The dotted circle around the stamped "flower" is by Heidi Swapp.

Hope you all have a great week. In the car on the way to school this morning, the boys and I were counting the days until their holiday starts, and it's 20. They were very excited, as am I!!

Oh No!! Chicken Pox

Hi All

Just a quick post. Wanted to let you know why I haven't posted in a while. My sweet baby boy has the chicken pox, he also has tonsillitis and both his ears are red & inflamed. He hasn't been sick in an age, and I guess we are making up for it now! He has been so miserable, but also so good with it. He really is my little angel. Here is a photo I took of him today. Isn't he too precious!

I am also posting the card I made using the scraps from the "My Heart" layout. I think it's a great idea to make a quick card from the leftovers from a page. I am going to try and do it more often from now on.

Hope you are all keeping well!
