Last minute cards!

Had a shock today when I looked at the date only to realize it's mum's birthday tomorrow and I've not got her anything yet! So I had to set to work on her birthday cards, which no I hadn't started!
Here is the card from myself and DH, I used a Penny Black image that I received in a swap

the picture makes it look a bit dull, but the backing paper is glittered and I used my pearl watercolours, so it really sparkles! I have nearly finished the card from the girls I just need to add the greeting, so I will show you that tomorrow.

So now for yesterday's cards that I didn't get to show, first up is my oh so pretty 'christmas fairy' no no I thought not just for christmas!!

and finally for tonight, I have used the fab sketch from My Paperworld with one of my old Nellie's!!!

Hollie was upset again going into nursery, but I just left her with one of the teachers, I know they will ring if she doesn't settle. There was a new boy start this morning and he was sobbing bless him, so I know she isn't that bad. When I picked her up and asked if she had been ok they said not really only for the last hour, they were short staffed so couldn't fuss over them like normal, think that's what she needs, they need to get her joining in with the other children.

Lillie had her sponsored ERR (don't ask me what it stands for but it is an effective way of teaching/learning) they had to play a lot of games all involving the letters and words that they had learnt. Then there was like a fund raiser in addition to this to raise money for new big books for the class. There wasn't really that much there, but we stayed until the end for the raffle to be drawn, the girls were happy they both had their faces painted as butterflies!! and Lillie won a circus cake mix and some branston pickle, and I go to hell if I didn't win another jar!! and a pale of easter eggs!! Also won a bottle of wine and £5 gift voucher for virgin vie and mum the jammy git won £10. So it was ok and it was good to see the head teacher game for a laugh, having paper plates of squirty cream and mousse splattered all over her!! Don't know how much they made yet may find out tomorrow.
