Good morning all and how the devil are you this Monday?
A busy weekend was had this end with my youngest boys birthday on Saturday. (Thanks for all your birthday wishes for him).
He went to Laser tag with his Dad, brother and pals, all dressed up in camouflage, running around outside in the glorious sunshine. Needless to say they all had a ball.
He had a huge Colin the Caterpillar cake from work with his name on but unfortunately they were tucking into it before I realised I didn't have a picture. It was lovely, beautiful thick chocolate on the outside and yummy Swiss roll inside. Even the staff at the Loft, where he did the Laser tag, thought the cake was huge; more to share!
Yesterday I took him to the cinema to see the new animated film Two by Two, the story about the Ark. It was a super kids film with a real twist on the story.
It was nice to spend the morning together after all the fun and games of Saturday. I had a crazy day at work! Everything that could of happened did, it definitely lived up to the phrase of being "one of those days!" I was glad when it was home time.
In the afternoon I caught up on a few jobs and did a little crafting for the other blog I am involved with The Great Scheme of things.
Talking of The Great Scheme of things, I am posting there today too. This week has to be my favourite colour combo so far, can you guess what it might be?
This card sort of gives it away.
For this card I have started with 3 different strips of sea blue paper and have punched them with different sized circle punches along the edge to create a wave effect. The sand card has been torn to give a rustic effect, then glued over the sea blues. The beach hut is by Hobbycraft and is paper pieced in blues and stone before attaching to the card with 3d foam. I have also added a further base of sand to give it a grounding! The sentiment is by Hobby art craft By the sea and the seagulls are by Kanban crafts Sail away. Finally I added the wee button, the crab before matting and layering on a dark stone colour and adding to the card.
This is this weeks colour combo, shades of sea blue, stone and sand. Why not play along?
I loved this palette of colours, but then I am a sea blue kind of girl, and who doesn't love the beach?
So what is on the cards today?
The boys are in school, it is not a bank holiday for them. Hubby and I are off so time to crack on with some jobs. I have another man mountain of ironing, which might be hard to do today as my iron keeps tripping the electric, shame, I might have to craft instead!
Or maybe a trip to town for a new iron? Boo!
Have a super Monday whatever you have planned. Catch you with more tomorrow, I am working so it will probably be later in the day. x
