Hi there, well we've had a right funny old day today, they turned the electric off on our street at 8.30 and it wasn't coming back on untill 16.30, so we decided to go and do the pick ups for work, we had divertions and convoy cars so what should have taken us two and a half hours ended up being over four hours, and then I had to work in the dark this afternoon.
Ive used another one of Mo's digi's coloured with copics, paper is some I brought from QVC and not used yet its only a couple of years old, and bazill card, thats it really quite a simple one but I don't think boys like to much on their cards. I'm entering it into the following

Hiya, this card is for my nephews son Jamie (does that make him my Great Nephew, I don't know but he's great anyway) he'll be 5, and so thrilled to see his name on a card, I forgot I had these alphabet brads, I used one of my fave stamps from Motivet, the pictures come out a bit subdued, its a bit more vibrant in real life.
Well I've got this afternoon off so not sure what to do kitchen, ironing or craft room!!!!!
