Here comes the Weekend

Hello all you lovely ones out there.  It seems to have been one of those weeks where l seem to have been doing  a lot of running around (in the car and not in trainers lol) and this weekend is a busy one too, Tomorrow l am taking my son to Martin House (childrens hospice) for a sibling day - they hold these about four times a year for children who had been bereaved of a sibling who has stayed at the hospice in the past. Then l am going to a remembrance/mothers day service for parents/family whose child has passed away, this will be my first 'sad' mothers day. On sunday l am going to Harrogate to the Papercraft Show with my friend Irene and meeting my other friend Julie there, monday will be a collapse in a heap day and tuesday is my birthday, so if my posts and visits are a bit hit and miss please forgive me xx
The card - l was asked to make a card for my daughters friends mother who is in her seventies, it had to be non cutie and not 'Chavvy' not too sure what my daughter meant here - does she think my cards are chavvy??? So it was quite a basic card

The stamp is Aspects of Design for the Stamp Man
Colored with copics and a touch of glamour dust
Papers - Craftwork cards spotty vellum
Lace and pearls.

Not my usual style but the customer was very happy with it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:-
Papertake Weekly - One for the girls/ Mothers Day

Thank you for stopping by and tommorrows card definately does not have spots lol x Susan x

Hi Susan, this may not be your usual style but it's still lovely - very clean, fresh and pretty.

I think you're doing just the right thing going to the craft show on Sunday and generally keeping busy.
