A good day for challenges!

Made a couple of cards so far this morning, the first is using the fab as always sketch from the My Paper World blog, it also links in with the Daring Cardmakers dare which is to use 'butterflies' and also qualifies for the latest challenge at Time to Craft to use 'stitches' real or fake!Then loving the Paper World sketch which is simple yet effective, I made this weeks Magnolia challenge card which is to use 'ribbon, lots of it' pop over and have a look at the fab design team work, I wish I was so talented!!!If you want to stand a chance of winning a fab new stamp pop on over to Katherina's blog, she has blog candy on offer to celebrate her upcoming 30th birthday (link on the right)

We had a lovely day yesterday, we got to Matthew's mum and dad's in time for lunch, that was after chasing around the countryside looking for fruit trees for them!!! They have just moved and when asked what they would like for mother's day and his dad's birthday they said they would like some fruit trees for the garden. His dad is in the process of digging a big veggie patch and hope to become fairly self sufficient (right term???), where did we finally get the trees? a carboot on the way!!! They were very pleased with them so it was worth it. We did also get our stroll along the beach, it was quite nice even though it started to rain a couple of times, luckily they were only little showers!
My girls skimming pebbles, it was funny because one of the waves came right in so they had to run away from it before they got wet!!There were even a group of kiddies taking a dip in the sea, ooooooo...... that must have been freeeeezing!!!!

Had problems with Hollie this morning, she got dressed and headed to nursery fine, put her bag and coat away, found her frog (with name on for self registering), then she headed to the playdough table, but as soon as she sat down she turned to me and burst into tears. I stayed with her for half an hour but everytime I mentioned going soon she started crying again, so in the end I brought her home again, I think the weekend has messed things up a bit as she was ok the end of last week! Oh well try again tomorrow with a bit of bribery ;0) she also has a friend coming round to play afterwards so that will be something to look forward to. Fingers crossed!

Lovely cards and it looks as if your day by the sea was really special - great photos.

We got our fruit trees from but I can't get the site to come up for me on my computer this morning - probably my computer. We've bought from them for over 3 years now and they are quite reliable.
