What a horrible day

That Hurricane whateverhernameis has A LOT to answer for. The weather is hideous!! Winter has well and truly arrived. Kids are having their dinner just now as they're starting karate this evening. Then I have to pick them up, bring them home, throw Craig's Junior Section uniform on him and get him back up to Junior Section! Phew. Hopefully I'll manage to feed myself and Andy at some point through that too. Andy is on his way home by bus as the rail network appears to have ground to a halt. AGAIN. This country is just so not prepared for weather.... You might remember I mentioned that I went to the Craft World Demo weekend on Saturday. Kerry was there doing marvellous stuff with Prisma pencils. I have some but never really got into using them before I moved onto Promarkers. So she issued me with a challenge to do something with the pencils. She made it look so easy.... Well, how could I refuse. So here it is. Oh, and I just *had* to buy a Christmas Jack stamp to colour.... ahem. I love this wee stamp. He reminds me of Scott (well both the boys really) but Scott is much more like me and sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating! And both boys are left handed as is Jack, so you see, I really had to buy the stamp..... So Kerry, if you're looking in, I hope you like my attempt and that it passes the test ;)

You made me laugh with your comment, but I'm sure it's the law that cards for 1yr old little girls MUST be pink! Lisa x
