A busy birthday month

I am soooo glad that it's Friday! Work has been busy on a ridiculous scale - thank goodness it's the end of term next Wednesday! I'm just trying not to think of all the things that I need to get done at work before then. And the usual comings and goings at home - with a teenage boy at home there seems to be a constant stream of bodies in and out of the house. But he's also busy looking at university courses and prospectuses and thinking about what he wants to do when he finishes his A levels next year. I can't believe that he's only got one more year at school - when your children are little the time doesn't go quite as fast. But as they get older (or as we get older?) it seems to speed past so quickly. I know that it's part of the job description as a parent that you help prepare them to stand on their own two feet - but part of me is dreading it when my 'baby' has flown the nest (sob!).

Anyway (stop being so miserable Kim!) - July is a busy month for us for birthdays for family and friends, so expect quite a few cards appearing on my little corner of Blogland over the next few weeks!

On Tuesday this week was my stepdaughter Lucy's birthday and so I used one of my old favourite stamps by Sarah Kay 'First Kiss', which is such a cutie!

I've coloured the image with copics and pencil, and a touch of white pen
The papers are from LOTV and I've used dies from Memory Box (hanging hearts) and DooHickey (doiley flower). The sentiment stamp is also from LOTV. 

Hope you like it! 

And as the weather forecast is not looking too sunny tomorrow, I'm hoping to catch up with Blogland, some more cards I need to make and some tv programmes that I've missed or been too tired to watch this last couple of weeks!  I think a day of general 'me time' is definitely overdue! 

Hope you enjoy your weekend, whatever you have planned. 
Back soon,
Kim x
