Special Commissions

These two cards were commissioned by a friend of mine. The first one was made using DCWV papers. I cut the two scalloped circles with my new Nestabilities. The number 3 is a chipboard number painted with a Denim coloured Dabber.

For this card I used papers that I have had for a while (can't remember what they are - general boy theme), and cut the number 6 using chipboard numbers (Craftwork Cards again!), and Card Candy (yes, you've guessed it - Craftwork Cards!!).

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was good in parts. My daughter came back from three days in Berlin on a Year 10 History trip at 11pm on Saturday, and I spent all day yesterday washing, ironing and repacking so that she could go off at 8am on an Italian exchange. Actually it's exhausting just writing about it! She woke up on a high and then nosedived as the day continued and ended up being very grumpy and uncooperative. Anyway, a week's respite until she returns! I love her dearly, but oh my goodness!
The pressure is off for a while at least - it has been somewhat manic here recently. Both Mark and I are utterly exhausted. Although now we have to tackle our next "project" which is to lodge an appeal to the School Admissions department, as we found out last week that Edward didn't get into our preferred Secondary School. That really contributed to my low mood last week. Edward, bless him, took it on the chin and has been quite philosophical about it.

Anyway, onwards and upwards!
