Circles!

Hello there my Bloggy friends! I hope you are all well and enjoying your Thursday.

I have had a very busy day. Today I took my little boys for a drive to meet up with my parents for a play and lunch. My parents live about 2 hours drive away so we arranged to meet at a cute little town about half way between us and let the kids run around in the play ground. I am still not sure who had the most fun - the boys or the grown ups! With only 14 months between them, I will admit there were days when the boys were little that had me wondering about my sanity ;) but now they are 3 and 2, wow, the days are just so much more FUN! Being able to communicate I suppose it the key ;) Both of my little darlings are very curious and want to experience everything in their own ways. I just love watching them learning. Its the best! And watching their grandparents with them is pretty sweet too. Thanks Grandma and Poppy for a lovely day! Then tonight I had the pleasure of meeting one of my bloggy friends, Lovely Linda who was teaching a scrap class at my LSS. Thank you Linda for a lovely evening! I had a great time and have learnt some new tricks to enhance my layouts!

So..... my card that I am sharing today is for Cute Card Thursday. The challenge this week is... GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES, hahaha, yup, that is what I did today. Or it feels like it!


I finally inked up my cute little Tilda with Kite from the Sweet Rainbows collection. Poor little Tilda! She was so neglected. I actually adore this stamp. She was a must have for me when I saw the collection. And yet she was the last to be placed at home on a card.

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Rainbow collection. I just love it, so, well, Sweet! hahaha. As you can see, I've been watercolouring again... yup, addicted. My poor neglected Copics.

I cut the card using my Grand nesties and Grand Callibur. It has not left my desk yet! The papers are some older Kaisercraft I've been hoarding :) The gorgeous flowers are of course Wild Orchid Crafts (25mm Wild Rose in 2 tone lilac, and 20mm cream open roses).

Well.. that is it for me today! I'm off to bed, exhausted! See you all tomorrow :)
Hugs xx
