A new month a new resolution!!!




With the children due to go back to school next week I am determined to find myself some crafty time despite the building work still having weeks to go!!! Got off to a good start today as yesterday had a phone call inviting Jack to a birthday bash this afternoon. Quite threw me to be honest as it is for a girl in his class who is the eldest in his year as opposed to him being the youngest. So where he has just turned 8 this little girl is now 9. NINE!!!!!!! Goodness me I thought 8 seemed so grown up. Anyway he has just gone off for the day now, going to the pictures and then for a burger afterwards. I hope to spend a little time sorting out my junk room...ooo...sorry.. I mean CRAFT room. I have carried yet more boxes up from the conservatory, which is now looking really a calm and relaxing room but there is so much in the craft room now, there is hardly room to move!!!
Right I am aiming, but not promising to do some papercrafting every day-here is todays attempt. I combined two challenges, the DCM "3 dies" and Just Bex "Gorgeous gingham" a basic card but I enjoy working with the simplicity of gingham and polka dots...and love the boldness of pink, black and white.....I hope the recipient does too!!! Not sure what 9 year old girls go for- Jack wanted me to make a Doctor Who card for her...hmmmm!!!
