And Another Rainy Day!

After the heavy downpours yesterday, I was hopeful that we had seen the last of the rain for the time being - sadly not! As I blog, it is lashing, down with thunder directly overhead. Ed is playing out in this, so goodness only knows what he will be like when he makes it home.

Today is my niece's birthday and she text me to say she loved the card - what a relief, because I wasn't too sure. Speaking of cards, I have made 5 today - two designs. Yesterday I did the water colouring (with Ed uttering those dreaded words "can I help you Mummy?"). I set him up with some painting of his own, and we both quietly got on with our work.

This morning, whilst waiting for a Tesco delivery I set about making the cards and I am very pleased with the results - hopefully the photos do them justice. The stamps are my new Kay Carley Funky Flowers. I used the new Craftwork Cards Dotty papers and some plain textured cardstock from DCWV.

I used a little bit of crystal Stickles to add a little bit of glitz. I'm really pleased to have had the time to do these, as often my card making is a little bit rushed.

A friend from work popped round for coffee to discuss our trip to London in a few weeks to go to the National Gallery. We both went there a few months ago on a school trip and would to have spent more time looking at the paintings, but we were a bit rushed. So a girly day out with lunch and maybe a trip to Covent Garden is the order of the day.

This afternoon was a bit tedious - the grand "blitzing" plan on the kids' bedrooms is not quite going according to my plan. Let's just say Em is somewhat reluctant to pull her finger out! I had to do her desk with her, not how I had planned to spend the afternoon - was going to make more cards. Never mind - there is always the week when the kids are at Mum and Dad's.

I did find time yesterday to watch Twilight again - mmm I love Robert Pattison. Am slightly miffed because I can't find any info on Amazon about Breaking Dawn coming out in paperback. I hope they haven't pulled the release. A while ago, the release date was 6th August, now it is not even on the website - I am very confused.

(Ed just returned, looking like a drowned rat!!).
