Claudia makes her First Holy Communion on Sunday so there is a bit of work to do to get organised before then. And Maddie has netball on Saturday. It looks like rain, but I hope it holds off until after the game.
Gerard and I went to see the new Indiana Jones movie today. It was pretty good, if you're an Indie fan. A pretty far fetched plot but the special effects were great. And to be honest, it was just nice to get out together for a change!
Since it's after midnight, I am off to bed. Have a great weekend!
Supplies: Cardstock: Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla. Paper by My Minds Eye. Choc Chip Ribbon by Stampin'Up! Brown thread and Chocolate Chip Ink.

So after a sluggish start to the day I think I will put some washing on and go back to my room and finish off those cards. In the meantime, here is what I accomplished yesterday.
Supplies: All cardstock and paper from Stampin'Up! Card in soft sky, purely pomegranate and whisper white. DP is Western Sky and Rose Red DP. Misc: ribbon, buttons, flower punch, janome mini sew, cuttlebug alpha.
This card was for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge, and this design really proved to be a challenge for me, but I am pretty happy with what I ended up making.
Supplies: Card: rose red, whisper white, and Rose Red Designer Paper. Stamps: Sanded background, SU Rub Ons for the sentiment and just flowers and eyelets to finish off.

Maddie had her first netball game of the season today and she scored the most awesome goal from just inside the circle! Hubby is off again overseas on Wednesday - and I am sure he only just got back?? And I had a big de-cluttering of my craft room yesterday and took 5 boxes to store in the shed and 2 boxes to the tip. My room even 'feels' lighter now :) So I just have to find some time to get creative in it.
Oh and we booked tickets for my mother-in-law to come and stay for two weeks in the July school holidays, so we are all pretty excited about that :)Anyway, here is my card this weekend's Sketch Challenge by Beate. I made this card for my friend Caroline's birthday, which is tomorrow. So just made it in time!
Supplies: Cardstock by Stampin'Up in So Saffron, Cranberry Crisp and Very Vanilla. Paper is basic grey 'Sugared'. Ink is Chocolate Chip by SU! and flowers are by Prima. Stamp set is Life Definitions also by SU!
Have a great weekend!
