So Sweet

The very lovely Katharina is opening up her own stamp company called Whiff of Joy, she has a lady called Alison Acton on board who's characters are Charlotte and Charlie, and also the very talented Elisabeth Bell who's designs I adore!! So I cannot wait, pop over to Karathrina's blog (link on the right) and take a look at Charlotte and Charlie they are so cute, and whilst you are there Katharina is running a naming competition for Elisabeth's characters there is a wonderful image a young girl with a mug of hot chocolate (a must have!!).
Katharina is also hosting a competition to find a guest designer to join the team every couple of months, there is a sketch on the blog which she wants you to make a card from, so here is my effort, I used my new Sugar Nellie, Elisabeth Bell design, Pen Pal stamp I just love her attitude she reminds me soooo.... much of my girls!! I kept the colours quite neutral for this one and I kinda like it.
and would you believe it, Katharina has also designed the sketch for this weeks Papertake Weekly challenge (there is no stopping this lady!). Here is an atc I made using the sketch, sorry for the awful picture I just couldn't get the lighting right and gave up trying!

Well that's it another school year over, Lillie is no longer a reception pupil and will go back in September as a Year 1, Hollie has another year at nursery sadly the little friends she has made all move up there are only 2 of them staying!! Lillie's class had a presentation assembly this morning, we were invited to watch, all of the children were given rossette's (the ribbons amuzed us!! obviously modified horsey ones Lol..!) and certificates with their achievements on. Then we got to have a biscuit before we left, Lillie was so happy to be one of the helpers going around with a plate of biscuits, perhaps a waitress in training, heh I did it for 4 years!!
All day long I have been thinking it's Friday, thinking we'll be grocery shopping later, and won't need to do Matthews packing up for work, looking for challenges that start on a Friday, even more fuelled when Matthew just arrived home 2 hours earlier than usual, which made me think oh yes he has the dentist (on Friday!). Must be going mad!! They have given him the day off tomorrow as there isn't much on, which is nice I love having him home, so it's painting for us, be it inside or out I'm not sure, will see what the weather is doing.
