time for a hug ~ CSF #7

here we are again monday morning and time for a new challenge on CREATIVE STAMP FRIENDS ~the new challenge is "DISTRESS" ~so some ripping and get the inks out for this one!!

i used my new crafty individuals stamps, k & co papers, core`dinations textured card, nestabilities oval dies, cuttlebug distressed lines embossing folder, marianne flowers and leaf dies (seem to be using them much too much)

for this card i used the wonderful sketch over on SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY#65

as you may have guessed i have been away on my family holiday to somerset ~what a wonderful time we had ~ this pic was taken by my mum on about her tenth attempt (i lost count) on my camera ~ think we may have lost interest !!! LOL... and we were about to go home!!

below is our trip to legoland ~here is my two boys driving ~it`s ok not real cars , just lego ones ~ and got their licence to prove it!!

hope you all had a wonderful summer too ~now autumn is approaching ~lewis is back to school and we are still fighting for a school place for aaron ~ have a meeting with education welfare this week ~ to see if they can get him back into his old school!! (over my dead body) ~ if i don`t return to my blog over the next few days ~can you club together to get me out of jail???

better celebrate my birthday well then, tomorrow the 7th !!! (cannot believe i will be that old)~ how fast these birthdays come round!!!

have a good day!
