Yet more birthdays!

Well, it's nearly my 'end of term' at work and I am soooo looking forward to having a break! Before working in a school, I was probably one of the many people who thought that things at school gradually wound down towards the end of the school year in summer, with lots of relaxing, chilled activities....  After working at school for nearly 4 years now, I can assure you that it is precisely the opposite! Everything over the last few weeks seems to gain momentum as everybody pedals furiously downhill! The students may well be winding down, but all the staff are racing round like demented bees, trying to get everything completed. And even though many staff are also in work over the holidays (no, staff at schools do not only work 9-3, and have LOTS of holiday!), I think everyone is ready for a lie down in darkened room!

But, aside from the madness of work, the month of many birthdays continues and I'd like to share another one of the birthday cards - this one was for my lovely stepdaughter Lucy!

I've used the gorgeous 'April' from Mo Manning - just love those little wellies! 

I've coloured the image with my usual mix of copics, graphits & pencils. 
The papers and sentiment stamps are from LOTV, with die cuts and lace.

Hope you like it! 

Thank you for the lovely comments, and I'm hoping with a little extra 'relaxation' time, I'll have chance to catch up with more of your lovely blogs. 
Back soon,
