The Super Tube Telephone!!!!

Happy Easter everyone!!!!

We are having a day at home today! Jim is in the dining room sorting out some camera stuff, the children are in the garden building a wonderful 'super tube telephone', Riley is in his crate having a rest from trying to destroy the 'super tube telephone' and i am having 10 minutes peace from all of them, although i can still hear the banging of the childrens construction work!! but atleast they are not coming in every few seconds to 'tell' on one another! The 'super tube telephone' has kept them very busy this afternoon so far, so busy in fact that they have forgotten to argue and call each other names! wow, i thought i would never see the day! lol

Here is a picture of the 'super tube telephone' (Joe named it by the way) in the making!!!

The boy's at work!!

As it is a rainy day here in Gloucester we thought it would be a good idea to make a few cards!

It is Dad and Chrissi's birthdays today so the boys are making cards for them, Joe's card has a picture of a vw camper van (dads favourite) and Mikey's card has a lovely selection of shapes! circles, squares and triangles! (what a clever lad!). They are not sure what they will be putting on Chrissi's yet but joe said he might put some cats on it!

Here is a picture of Joe and mikey at work!!

Another non craft related post!

I have not been able to make any cards for over a week due to having Riley at home! Believe me when i say puppies are very hard work!!! I don't seem to be able to sit down for more than 5 mins at a time! but i am loving having him with us, he is so cute and when he is not nipping at our hands and feet he can be quite cuddly!

We are taking him for his first vaccinations in the morning, i hope he will be ok!

Here is a picture of him with Joe!

Hi all,

I have been a bad blogger! as you can see from my previous post it has been a while since i last updated my blog!!! I haven't made any cards for a while as we are in the middle of decorating the living room and the whole of downstairs is in a jumble!

The reason for this post is to show off the newest member of our family! His name is Riley, he is 5 weeks olds and he is a yellow labrador! he can come home in a couple of weeks!!!! we are all so excited!!

New cards!

Becca did not come round today! but she might come round tomorrow!

I decided to go ahead with making cards even though becca didn't come as i had my stuff out and my cousin steph asked me to make 2 valentines cards, one each for her girls to give out! I had a good time but making them but it is alway better to gossip with someone while you work! lol

Here is a picture of my latest card!!

A poorly boy!

Maybe we won't be crafting today!!! Joe was poorly last night so he is having a day off school!!

I got all of my cardmaking stuff out last night to make a card for becca's birthday and decided to keep it all out as i had arranged a craft session with Becca for today and now we more that likey won't be doing any! what a pain!

Joe was up being sick last night, he was so poorly, bless him! he is feeling a little better now and is wanting some breakfast! I think he had better wait a while!!

Anyway, here is Becca's birthday card!
