A birthday card for a 17 year old
Mum and Dad stayed over because Mum and I were going to Stamperama (card making show) in Stevenage the next day.
We moved on to LB Crafts so that I could buy my Glimmer Mists - I bought six colours with lovely names such as Sapphire, Pink Taffy, Purple Pansy, Black Cherry, Honey Dew Mist and Meadow Green. I now have 15 colours in my collection. Watched Linda do yet another great demo -she's a very clever lady - would love to go to one of her workshops.
We didn't stay too long after that. We stopped and had coffee and cake and then browsed all the stalls, but as we had really got what we came for, we headed for home.
This morning, yet again, woke up stupidly early and went downstairs to do my ironing. By 8.45am I had watched another episode of The Thornbirds and completely cleared the ironing. There is something quite satisfying about piles of ironed clothes and an empty basket.
Edward woke up not feeling terribly well, and was a bit poorly later on.
Had to get Emily round to her friends for noon, by which point Edward had perked up. I spent the afternoon making some more cards - used Julie's cards for inspiration,and am really pleased with the results. See for yourselves.
In the meantime, Edward fell off his bike and has sustained an injury in an unfortunate place and has spent the afternoon laying on the settee, watching the television and feeling very sorry for himself.
