Get Well Soon

Two cards from Juls, featuring the newer Mary Hall stamps, I especially love the simplicity and clean look of these cards, Juls has used her nesties to make a shaped card which is very popular at the moment.

 The new go kreate dies in store have a few sell outs as more and more crafters are cutting their own shaped cards.

 Once we move up the the Grande Spellbinder only the size on matching envelopes will hold us back! LOL

Birthday boy is away to school as they have a cross country comp today, as our little village school only has 30+ pupils and James in in the P7 class of about 5 children, he is by far the tallest in school, does that mean his legs will be the longest and he will run the fastest? I doubt it but hes got a very good chance. What do you give a 12 year old, none of the things on his list that's for sure!
Money for new trainers and a school trip along with a special treat of a visit to a friends clay pigeon shoot.His Granny is taking him out for tea and that's about as exciting as it gets at 12.
Mini me and I made his birthday cards, both almost the same as she followed me step by step, until it came to glueing on the buttons, I tried to tell her its one or three but no no she had to have all she wanted! Still, it was not bad for an eight year old.

So tomorrow is my "sugar daddy's" birthday, that title is more fitting than you know, just so you realise I am not as old as him!
Because he is real busy on our farm with the lambing and sewing at this time of year we are not having a party until May, but he is stressing out that the invites have not even been  made yet. So does anyone do commissions LOL I don't know if I'm fit to make all those invites.....

take care

Hiya Karen,

Oh so so pretty cards so sweet!

Well how did you boy do in the cross country?

How many offers you had to do the invitations so far?
How many you needing? 100?

We could all do one - wouldn't match but least everyone would get an invite!

Hope you had a good weekend

Take care
