'Thank you'

Been busy this morning, I finally started the gift card wallets for the shop, was getting on pretty well until Mum turned up with my 2 nephews!! Jordan the eldest (9) is into everything, he had my hammer so wanted to punch holes in bits of paper, then got one of my stamps and ink pad and absolutely flooded it with ink gggrrr...... so had to give it a wash!! He climbed the scaffolding we've got outside, rode every bike/scooter around the yard, played with my phone and camera's, boy he's hard work! Poor Dad he didn't come, think he needed a time out from the boys as they had had them overnight, Jordan is really lippy and full of attitude, that is when him and Ethan aren't fighting and dad's got little patience for it these days bless him.

Since they've been gone I've made a card again combining 2 challenges, so I've used Kimmie's sketch from Friday Sketchers and the challenge over at Stamp Something is to make a 'thank you' something (I've used a photo as my image so the only stamping is actually the sentiment, but I have 'stamped something' Lol!). I've made the card for my Auntie and Uncle who looked after the girls on Tuesday so that we could go to the funeral

If there had've been a challenge somewhere for a card with spots/circles on it this would be perfect Lol..!!!

So exhausting dealing with a hyperactive child on his own, without trying to sort the disruption to other kids.

Lovely card! You've been busy!
