Aarons cards and busy busy busy!!!

Hello Lovelies - how are you tonight? I'm just back in from a night out with the guiding team - its been a busy few days and I haven't had chance to blog anything until now!!! I had a day out on a school trip on Thursday - we went to a farm near Kendal and had a wonderful day - we all learned something!!!! Then last night we went the play in the park - it was Oliver twist this year - a fabulous production but I found it hard to believe in the setting - the park doesn't really lend itself to the story - but that aside it was excellent! Today I've been to the hairdressers and out for tea tonight! Phew! Busy busy!

So tonight I want to show you the two cards I have made for the boy who is sharing Lucy's birthday party - thats on Sunday although her birthday is not until August!

He's mad keen on camper vans so the stamp from this months craft stamper came in handy!

I love this one myself - those chickens are cool!

This is a penny black stamp simply coloured with spectrum noir pencils.

I hope you have had a good day and thanks for any comments you choose to leave!

Big hugs

  4. It's always a manic time at schools in July Rachel, mind you I used to love being involved in end of term activities when mine were still there - shame they don't invite you when they get to Uni !!
