More cards...

... February is a busy month for family birthdays, so I thought I would use some time over the weekend to get organised with my cardmaking for the month.

The first card is for my sister, who is 30 at the end of the month, although in my eyes she is always my baby sister. I used the Manga Fairy from Sugar Nellie, and a sketch which I squirrelled away in a folder but have no idea whose it is - I do know that it is one of the Sugar Nellie DT, so it could be either Tiets or Marlene... I used K&Co papers :)

The second card is for my mother in law, and again I used a sketch, and again I have no idea whose it is LOL. But it is most likely to be the same as before, so either Tiets or Marlene from the Sugar Nellie DT :) I used a Gorjuss girl stamp on this one, and some BG papers. Oh and my Martha Stewart butterfly punch :)

I also managed to get some scrapping done too - I went through one of the storage albums I have and found some photos of Tom in a school assembly. The boy was a complete star that day, having a whole side of A4 to read out - considerably more than the rest of his class mates. His reading has always been his forte, he has been a phenomenal reader, and this assembly let him show off his strengths. We were obviously proud at his achievements, but a few other parents in the class were gobsmacked... Their poor teacher at the next parents evening had a lot of parents asking why their little Johnny wasn't reading like Tom did in that assembly...
I used a PageMaps sketch for this one, a 8.5 x 11 double from October 2009.

Things are slowly progressing on the decorating front - Mark is on leave this week, and we have been picking paints and wallpaper to transform the sunroom :) The kids are on half term from Friday to Monday, so the painting will begin on Tuesday ;) I am hoping that the weather doesn't work against us, and at least stays dry, so that we can get out of the house over the weekend. Mark is taking the kids to the cinema on Sunday to see Astroboy - Tom loves that he has machine guns in his butt (not Tom, Astroboy!!!) and has been asking to see this movie for weeks.
I'm at work over the weekend, so won't be going - I am predicting a busy weekend, with Valentines Day and Chinese New Year. Plus there is a Dine in Meal for 2 offer on, and its the Valentines special - 3 courses, wine, chocolates or a rose all for £20, a bargain ;) So by the end of Sunday night I will be shattered LOL.
