Don't want to jinx it....

So I'm not going to mention the weather ;)

My life seems to be passing in a blur, all the kids activities at school and playgroup are keeping me busy - Scott and Willow both had their sports days, Willow's had her end of year trip, Faith's had her end of playgroup trip, apparently Scott's class isn't having a trip this year - which I'm not terribly impressed with seeing as his class has had crappy trips the last 2 years and none this year. Then Willow and Scott found out who their teachers will be next year - I haven't met Scott's new teachers before, unfortunately I have come across Willow's new teachers for next year and let's just say I'm not over enamoured with them.
Here's a few pics of Scott and Willow at their sports days...

Scott, decided it was too cold to wear gym kit!
Here's weary Willow...
Must be something about my kids, Willow also decided it was too cold and kept on her tights and jacket!
Faith managed to get some kind of bug over the weekend, so was sick on Sunday morning all over her bed and bedroom floor, and she had the runs up until yesterday so in line with policy I've had to keep her off playgroup even though she's been well in herself.
So she and I decided to have a wee jaunt out to Alford to Simply Create and had a wee splurge - just a wee one lol Picked up one of the new Hero Arts stamp sets, some MME and Making Memories papers, some Craftwork Cards stuff, some paint and crackle paint for a wee project I have planned. And of course there is always a sneaky wee EK Success punch that manages to jump into my basket. Unfortunately I didn't see Jacqui, she was too busy preparing for the marathon crop next week - you'll find all the info on the SC blog.

I was asked to make a wedding acceptance card by a regular customer of mine (Hi Angela if you're reading this) and she wanted it to be simple and elegant, so this is what I did...
The "acceptance" stamp was bought at the wee crafty shop in Stonehaven, I used Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink to stamp it. The white and caramel cardstock is core'dinations, I embossed some of the white card with the cuttlebug "birds and swirls" folder and added some latte kaisercraft adhesive pearls to the pattern. I used the garden lattice MS punch on another piece of white card and attached both panels to some caramel card, covering the join with plain white grosgrain ribbon.
