Where did that week go...?

I can't believe it's Friday already! Where did the week go? It's amazing how fast a week's half term break can speed by - but I'm not going to think about going back to work on Monday and the usual routine just yet!

We've been having a bit of building work done at home, so it was with an extra bit of delight that I waved goodbye to husband and son, and left them to it (sniggers!). I headed down to Sussex and enjoyed a lovely few days with my daughter Lauren.  I was treated to a visit to her new school where she's now teaching (and helped out with a wall display - mothers who like crafting have their uses!).  And some nice time with lunches out, browsing round the lovely little shops in Lewes, and meals out with Lauren & her partner Tom in an evening! But I'm back now and I think the boys missed me really (and not just for the catering and laundry duties as I had cynically suggested!).  There's a bit more building work to finish off and then hopefully I can get my house straight once more as I hate having things upside down - and I'm not OCD really (despite what my husband suggests).

But before I went away I was able to finish a card using one of my favourite cute little characters from Mo Manning

I've coloured the image with copics and graphit pens.  The papers are from K&Co and the sentiment stamp is from LOTV

I found the lovely wooden kite embellishment in my stash, and I've used a Spellbinders edge die for the top edging and some hessian ribbon

Quite a simple layout, but I think it's still quite a cute little card! 

I've had a lovely coffee & catch up with a friend today and another one scheduled in tomorrow with another good friend - school holidays are always a good chance to meet up & re-connect! 
But I'll try and fit some crafting and blogging time in too as I need to stop being such a bad blogger and get around to doing some blog visiting! 
Enjoy your weekend, whatever you have planned
Back soon,
