Day 1 done and dusted

And we've all survived....

Here I am, in the midst of packing and getting ready to go away, sitting blogging. Oops.

I have enlisted the help of the children - their clothes are all ready to go, Scott has packed his toys, books and dvds.

And I was just about to go and tackle (yet more) ironing but I thought I'd share these with you. 

This is the card and gift I made for Craig's teacher. He's had her 3 times and is quite fond of her so I wanted to do something to mark the end of that time.

Image - Smitty Schoolboy, Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers and Copics, Sentiments from a Woodware set
Cardstock - Stampin Up
Paper - My Mind's Eye (I think)
Embellishments - Card Candy, coloured with Copics
Tools - Label Nestie, Cuttlebug, Cherish Punch Around the Page, MS

And here is the gift, I got this frame in Ikea, it's a 9"x 9" and cost about £4. Bargain. I may do more of these.

Stamp - Definition from an Indigo Blu set
Cardstock - From stash
Paper - Bo Bunny
Embellishments - Card Candy, School Buttons
Tools - Tim Holtz Regal Crest Die, Big Shot

Challenges I'd like to enter - 

Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Punches or Dies

I'm off to do some more packing and ironing!

Thanks for dropping by today. Hugs. Susan xxx
