Welcome Home & Burlesque
I don't think I've even mentioned in any recent posts that my beautiful boy (master 10) has been away in Qld since new years eve! He is in Brisbane with his godmother and her family - quite safe from the devastating floods.
Well guess who is flying home tomorrow late afternoon! I can't wait to see him. I haven't had a break like this since he was born, and thought it would be wonderful. Instead I missed him dreadfully and really didn't make the most of my free time. I did enjoy peaceful evenings and lots of crafting time though :o) He has had an absolute blast up there and met lots of new friends and done heaps of exciting holiday activities. I think he's coming home for a bit of a rest myself lol.
Anyway cutting to the chase I made him a cute little "I love you, welcome home" card using the Papertrey Paper Dolls, Challenge #29 - simplicity.
The longest/fiddliest part of this card was assembling the little owl. My card isn't standard size, just note card really. It's the first time my Wood Grain b/g stamp has seen ink - in this case Versamark, and I'm pretty impressed.
On a completely different note I went to the movies earlier this evening and saw Burlesque. Fabulous, loved it. A little something of everything and Christina Aguilera's voice is amazing as always. A couple of songs from Cher too - I thoroughly enjoyed it.
