Smile

Hi there ...
I'm feeling a little burnt out right now ... In need of some rest and 'me' time
Last night was our last craft class at Thursday club until September and I'm looking forward to re-charching my batteries and hopefully coming up with some new projects for them.
It seems all I've been doing lately is keeping up with DT work, comments, my group of special needs and a little teaching here and there and I miss being able to "just create"

My little Ginger waits patiently for me to join him on the swing


We've had some nice sunshine and he spends all day here

But today I have a card to share that is for a friend's birthday ... I used to take her out in her pram ... spent many many years with her and her sisters ... babysitting, taking them to the park etc., I can hardly believe she is celebrating her 50th! 


She now lives in Norway so I haven't seen her in a long time ... If I'm up to it we will be meeting again tonight as she's come home to celebrate


There is a challenge at Mod Squad this week 


It calls for some texture on your card...
Well there's lots of different texture here don't you think?


Linen card stock, dry embossing, liquid pearls and glitter paper


... a felt star, silver thread and rainbow gems
I had fun putting this one together ... That's what it's all about 

Ok, I'm off visit you all then join my kitty for a little while...

Have a lovely day 

~ Ros ~
