sunshine all year through

well at last...... for the first time in over a week i have been able to sit down and have made a card....kept it simple as still in pain, and it is a week since i saw the doctor and was given those enormous tablets, even a horse would have problems swollowing them!!!LOL!

anyway onto the card ..used the fab sketch over on:~





used my minds eye paper, lili of the valley image and circle word stamp , coloured in promarkers. circle nestabilities, sizzix corner die and card candy.

below is a picture taken today by my husband of our son aaron and his cousin maki (who is visiting us), at THE ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY CENTRE in Cranborne, Dorset ~ a day for all the family ~a multi period farmstead with lots of activities, from fire making to story telling in the earth house~fun was had by all ~we will be going back soon for some viking and also stone age events

hope you have a great weekend ~i have my parents, brother and his family coming over tomorrow for tea.......
