Pink and sparkly

I can't believe that it is Thursday already. The week has gone flying by which is a good thing since I'm back at work. Last night my class and the class next door put on their WW2 performance for parents, grandparents and family friends and what a night it was! I'm still on a high as are the kids as they were outstanding. I felt so proud last night and priviledged to be working with such a talented bunch of young people. The show was based around a grandmother recalling her memories of living through WW2 to her grandchildren through drama, singing and dancing. We also had a small orchestra playing too as we have several kids who play piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass. They were all absolutely out of this world and the audience were blown away. A memory I'll treasure forever and never forget! Pleased that it is Friday tomorrow though as I am feeling really tired and still have a real chesty cough and annoying head cold which came on last week and is still lingering. I have been hoping to get some crafting done but haven't been successful so far and well don't think it'll be happening tonight as I have a lot of work to get done! So why am I on here? Putting off the inevitable ....

This card was another which was made for my sister's birthday. I just love this stamp, it's so adorable. Think I'll be using this more often.

Stamp: Whiff of Joy: Confirmand Melinda
Paper: Can't remember where it's from, in my stash
Medium: prisma pencils, sansador, glitz it glitter glue
Tools: Martha Stewart Lace punch
Embellishments: card candy and sentiment from Craftwork Cards, prima flowers

Was having trouble coming up with a title for this post, that's why it's rather random. Off to get some work done now. Have a great night whatever you are doing!
