A Productive Weekend.....

Even though I spent half of the weekend feeling rather icky from a tummy bug, it was also a good excuse to spend some quiet time making cards.

I made a load of cards for a Showcase Challenge for an upcoming issue of Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft Magazine but I can't show you those, sorry.

I also finished some cards that I'd had sitting around for quite awhile. They are all made using October Afternoon's "Fly A Kite" range. Just love October Afternoon, they never fail to make me happy.

What did you do this weekend?
Whatever it was I hope you had a great time :)

Happy Valentine's Day.....

Sending sweet wishes to you all.

I like to celebrate Valentine's Day in a non-expensive, fun kind of way. I don't believe it should be a day that you spend loads of money on to express your love for those that are dear to your heart.

For years, I have always tucked a little heart shaped chocolate into the kids' lunch boxes, which they loved, it was the first thing Molly checked for this morning when she was packing her bag for school.

A couple of other little things I've done to add to the celebration day was to make these cute little cupcakes. I bought a White Wings cake mix which included the little heart sprinkles & the cupcake toppers are a free printable that I found at Anna and Blue Paperie, aren't they so cute.

We are going to have these for dessert tonight.

This one is a sugar free bit of fun for Miss Molly. She'll love playing noughts & crosses all night with this. It is also a free printable that I found at It's Always a Party at the Parkers.

Are you doing anything for Valentine's Day?

I think I forgot to show the card that I made for my beautiful boy's 19th birthday last month.
This is it.....

Well it's nearly time to go pick up my sweet valentine from school so I'll say bye.
Thanks for popping by :)
