What a lovely day

no, honestly, the sun has been shining here all day. Unfortunately with a nice day the ironing basket seems to expand to gargantuan proportions!

Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I always find Father's day a little difficult although I did think about posting a photo of my lovely Dad but I just never got round to it as it was such a busy day.

Andy was still away yesterday so the boys and I got up, went to church, came home, went to rugby where Craig and I helped out on the cake stall. This is a very very bad job ;) The cakes look soooooo tempting. I have to admit to having one of Jan's chocolate chip cookies which was fab. And they must have been good - Scott had 3!!!!

After that we went to Asda as I'd promised the boys we'd do some baking for Daddy for Father's day. Well, by the time we got home, had dinner etc there was no time before they were having showers so I ended up baking by myself after they'd gone to bed. The cakes turned out ok though, even without their assistance.

So, onto a card. This is a stamp I won during a blog hop over at Sugar Nellies (and while I remember, apologies for not Sharing on Sunday). I inked her up. Coloured her face and hair and then she stayed in a poly pocket! I used her for the SN Facebook challenge last week which was dies and/or doodles. See, I'm getting more practice on the old doodling front!
