Weekend again!

Hurrah! I love weekends! This one started out a bit miserable, weather-wise, but then look at the plus side, all those new plants I put out last weekend have had a good soaking which is brilliant because I've forgotten to do it!!! My calendula's are looking perky again....oooer!!! LOL!

Anyway, it's the weekend so that means sketch time again, and here is my Friday Sketch offering. I kept trying not to use Daisy again, but she is so irresistable that I just had to colour her in to kickstart my weekend craft time!
You'll have to use your imagination a bit with the circles at the bottom - I did try adding buttons, brads, flowers and even punched circles but it just wouldn't work, so I figured the pattern on the paper would suffice!

Thank You to those who offered me advice last week with my blog invite problem - it turned out that I had put the wrong email addy's in!! DUH! :o)
Have a great weekend and thanks for popping in! :o) xxx

Sketch Friday

OMGosh, it's the last day of the Easter Hols :o( Where'd it go? Well, I know where it went for me - I spent the first week nursing two sick little 'uns! It didn't stop us getting out and enjoying ourselves (although my eldest didn't have as much fun as the rest of us :o(...), and the second week has gone in a blink of an eye! My big fella was 10 yesterday - unbelievable - and now we're constantly watching our P's & Q's and looking over our shoulders because he had a new DSi Lite for his birthday and we keep catching him sneaking up to take our photo's and morph our faces - that bit is hilarious, but when I discovered that he had been recording me swearing at other motorists, I realised that none of us are safe anymore!!! LOL!!

Anyway, here is my offering for this week's Friday sketch. I did a bit of masking on this image which is something I haven't done for a long time.

And now I have a blog question which I would love if someone could answer for me please? I have created a new blog which I am sharing with a few friends only my invitations aren't going out for some reason. I have added each of their email addy's in the permissions section and I'm pretty sure I've followed all the instructions on blogger Help, but they're still not getting the invites, either in their normal mailboxes or their spam files. If anyone can offer any advice as to how this is done, I would really appreciate an email from you with the instructions.

That's my lot for today - time to get back to my decorating, I think! Thanks for popping by! xx

Hurrah for Easter Hols!!!

Saturday Sketch

Oh my, does anyone else feel as relieved as me that the Easter Holidays are finally here - well, they are at our schools! I went to see my 7 year old in 2 performances of his play this week - they did a fantastic job of a musical called "Minibeast Madness" - absolutely brilliant. However, he wasn't so enthused about his part....."a segment of a millipede.......not even a whole millipede!!!" (darling, you don't have enough legs!!! LOL!). Then last night my eldest came home from school with the biggest smile on his face - earlier in the week he and I constructed a model for his Easter Egg competition at school. I was extremely careful not to get too involved, after all, it's his competition - I was just on standby to find things for him to use from my stash, and to glue things on while he worked on other bits. Anyway, he came home last night with a huge grin and the 1st prize in his hands for his "Egg-stinct" dinosaur! LOL!!

Also this week I picked up a very cheap book at my son's bookfair (and when I say cheap, I mean outrageously inexpensive!). It's all about drawing fairies, so I got my pencils out and I drew this image which I've used on my Sketch Saturday card this week. It was huge fun to do and I'm hoping to be able to spend some more time over this holiday doing more!

Well Thanks again for popping by and I hope you have a great week! :o) xx
