Busy, busy,busy!

Wow I've been on a roll today not only craft wise but baking to! Yes I've baked 7 sponges, 6 jumbo smartie buns, 20 mini quiches, 10 sausage rolls and a corned beef pie thing (a slimming world recipe), made 4 projects (well 1 was made needed finishing touches) that cover 8 challenges and even hoovered!!!
First up is an altered notepad which covers 3 challenges : Paper Take Weekly = 'A stitch in time', Cute Card Thursdays = 'In the water' and Penny Black Saturday = 'Stars and stripes'
Next is for the Daring Card Makers challenge which is 'A side order with that', it's funny because I had made this before I saw the challenge! I have recycled a bottle bag that Matthew was given, the tag had been written on so I cut it off added a section of it to the bottom of a piece of card and attached the decoupaged image to which I had written the 65's on the balloons!

Last up for tonight is this spring card for Stamp Something Friday's challenge = 'Back to school somethings' I have had made since just before the children broke up from school, I had thought of giving this to one of the teachers as a thank you card but then had other ideas so it's sat on my desk unfinished! The little girl is Sugar Nellie's (Nellie) and I coloured her in the girls school colours, even giving her the blonde hair (I seem to do this on so many of my images, must be because my girls are blonde!?) all I did to finish the card was add the stickers!

Update on Hollie, she is absolutely fine and back to her old self. It's amazing, I had told her I was taking her to the doctors and he was going to give her some 'magic medicine' and HE DID!!! She had the 3 5ml's on Wednesday and Thursday morning we noticed the difference straight away! Now all she does is craze for food!!
Yesterday we took them to our favourite chinese restaurant (the buffet one) for lunch, we had had picnic's each time we had been out and as we had had the day at home on Thursday this was their treat. They loved it, I knew we would have no problems with Lillie she is getting so good with eating and trying things, Hollie I knew what she would eat (she's not at the trying things too eagerly stage but ate well) and Tia (step-daughter who we had for the week), well she is just crazing me where food is concerned she used to eat so well, now she is picky picky picky and it really winds me up. The lady who works in the restaurant came over and gave the girls each a bag, and inside was a big hair clip, the ones you squeeze, she said that she had bought them in Shanghai and thought they would make nice presents for the children/girls that came in and were well behaved, how nice was that?! We then headed to the farm (again!) took more of my 'same pose' pictures then while Lillie and Tia played on the big play area Hollie stayed with us and fed some coats and cuddled a bunny. We had quite a nice day. This tortoise was off to see the sheep!

My you have been busy today!! The giant smartie buns sound lovely... I have to remember not to always colour hair blonde, but like you think that is because my children are blonde!
