Thank heavens it's Friday!

Another busy week, they're just flying by at the moment. Despite being busy I managed to make two cards last night for my mother-in-law's birthday tomorrow. The first card was made using one of my gorjuss girl stamps and was based mostly on a sketch from the truly scrumptious challenge blog. The second card was made using bits and pieces that I actually coloured ages ago which saved me a lot of time last night. I think I'll need to have a batch of images coloured in advance of making cards and that way I might get more made rather than waiting to think about what papers I am going to use before colouring. I'm too much of a perfectionist and control freak!! Anyway here they are:

Lewis' spots are beginning to die away now thankfully although he is still suffering with an eye infection and isn't totally back to feeling like himself yet. Thanks to everyone for their kind wishes. Hopefully, he'll be back to normal soon. Well I'm off to settle down in front of the telly to watch comic relief. We had a fun day at school today and managed to raise a fabulous sum of £851. I might get some more cards made later!

Hi Lainey, I love your cards and I'm sure your MIL will too. Gorjuss girl is so pretty and I love the little scene in the other one, such gorgeous colouring too. Sorry to read that Lewis has chicken pox and an ear infection too, poor little thing, I hope he's on the mend very soon. Well done on the fund raising at school, that's a very impressive amount of money and I bet it was a fun day too. Have a great weekend, hugs, Chris x
