A Tad Late......

Well I had originally planned to enter this for a Friday Sketcher's Challenge a few weeks back but didn't manage to get it uploaded in time.Better late than never though,so here it is.I've used the lovely Miss Anya stamp and coloured her with Copic Markers.The papers are the delish Bo Bunny.

Not sure how much crafting I'll get done this week as we're off on holiday on Saturday to Lossiemouth for a week and have got lots to get done.Hopefully I'll manage to get something uploaded before then though.
I thought you might like to hear this little story.I took Louis to the Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow last week as it was raining and we had a great time looking round it all,he especially loves the spitfire that hangs inside.We happened to go into the Charles Rennie Mackintosh room which has his lovely wall hangings and furniture on show.Louis was having a good look at it,then suddenly piped up in a loud voice. Mummy....did they get those from Homebase......rofl.Thank goodness none of the museum curators were around,they'd have been affronted at him comparing their £250k chairs to Hombase.Me ....I was pmsl.

TFL as always

At Last A Card

Sorry folks for not being around much lately but between blogger problems and real life getting in the way I've just not had time to craft or do much blogging to be honest.I've removed my playlist for now and fingers crossed it seems ok.The last few weeks of the school holiday have just gone by in a flash.Usually I'm a homebird but with my concerts,a hen night,a birthday party,and Louis also went to a couple of birthday parties,I've not had much time to think let alone craft.Keeping a 5 year old occupied all day is very and he gets to stay up a bit later because it's the holidays,so by time he goes to bed,I'm not that far behind him as I'm age etc etc.I've also been put on antihistamine tablets which are supposed to be non drowsy,but I'm absolutely shattered on them too.So a mix of it all and I'm done in.
I did have some commissions to do too but can't share them just now apart from one.They were a real labour of love and each one took days to do because I didn't have much crafty time and
because they were to be special cards.One was a wedding card for the bride from her mum,one was an anniversary card for my pal Stu to give to his friends and the other was a silver wedding anniversary card for a girl I go to Body Combat and Body Pump with from me.They are all along a similar line so I'm sure you'll get the
