Oh I'm excited now, only five sleeps to the start of two weeks school holidays! Yay!
It's not that I don't like my job because I love it and it's not like I don't enjoy the time I get to myself on the days I don't work and the kids are at school because I do. It's just that time is going so fast and my boys are growing up before my eyes and I just want more time with them. I'm looking forward to just hanging out with them while they still think it's fun to spend time with Mum and Dad.
But, before I wish away another week I want to tell you all about this week's Make It Monday linky party.
It was another fabulously inspiring linky party last week. It is so much fun discovering new blogs each week and meeting some really lovely people.
I was fairly organised again this week with my card made ahead of time.
I was inspired to make this card after seeing my friend Shannean's creation here.
I really loved her card and thought I would have a try at heat embossing some flowers and then colouring them with ink with my water brush. I also really liked the way Shannean did the sentiment in the distressed oval.
