David went down with a dreadful cold/cough virus last Sunday. He was off sick Monday to Wednesday and then worked from home Thursday and Friday. He's on the mend now, although he's still coughing. I've had a bit of a cough so hoping I don't go down with anything. It was back to school on Monday - boy was it cold in school - the children didn't start until Tuesday and I guess the heating had been down low. Still the week passed quickly and it seems we haven't been away now - it's back to normal, not quite as manic as last term though - touch wood :)
On the cardmaking forum there's a challenge to make a "friendship" card, only thing was I forgot the bit of ribbon so my card which I finally got round to making a short while ago, it only has paper glitter ribbon, but it's very pretty as it's Doodlebug, in fact most of the card has Doodlebug stash on it. I coloured in the image with Promarkers - some new pens I've just bought. Here it is:
The image was made using a Clear stamp by Lelo Design called "Roses for you". Isn't it cute? I just love spring colours. The sentiment which you can't see very well on the photo (although you can read it in real life on the card) is by Stampin Up and reads: A friend is someone who stengthens you with prayers, blesses you with love, and encourages you with hope. Isn't that lovely?
Ummmm not much on television tonight so may be I'll make another card or two later.
Take care, please post a comment if you're able, would love to hear from you.

The New Year card I sent to distant family and friends:
You can't really see on the photo but there's quite a bit of glitter on it, on the clock face and star; and on the patterned paper.
We've just had the perfect two weeks, don't know where the time has gone really but it was enjoyable all the same.
Mum, brother David and his dog Telford came over for Christmas Day and Boxing Day and it was just the best having those two days in our own home with our loved ones. Christmas Day afternoon brother David and I took Telford along the cliff top whilst Mum and my David stayed and had a snooze :) Then Boxing Day afternoon the 4 of us went to the panto! It was to see Peter Pan at our local Theatre and it was great, got us all yelling :)
Oh yes earlier the first week David's company car had a problem so we took that in to our local VW dealer. That meant us using our own car which was fine with me, and as I don't like changing the seat/mirrors now I did all the driving :)
We saw the New Year in with Mum and then New Year's Day spent it there as well along with brother David and Telford. A good few days though brother David beat me at scrabble every time!
Monday afternoon Charlotte a neighbour's 13 year old came round for a crafting session and we had fun with stamps and glitter - ooops we got glitter everywhere but it was great fun.
A card I made fairly recent for a good friend's birthday at the end of December. I've managed to make a few thank you cards but have a way to go.
Wow you'll never believe what happened today? David and I met up with my penpal Rose from Australia. We've been writing for over 26 years but have never met until today. It was just fantastic meeting Rose and her sister Rach. They are over here for 4 weeks driving around visiting distant family and friends. Hoping we might get to meet up again soon if they find it's too cold to go to Scotland.
That's it for now, take care, hope to be back soon to show you some thank you cards.
