Finished cards could definitely not be described as 'less is more' but I was really pleased that they picked up so much, stamping, sticking on a couple of paper layers, sticking half the contents of my scraps flowers and butterflies tin on the front but also inking around the edges, using foam pads and candi, stickles, pro markers and more......... watch out all you pro crfters out there, our little Rosie Posie and Daisy Do (our little names for them) defo have the crafting flair, here's the fruits of yesterday afternoon and dawn today!!
After baths and a very lazy breakfast today it was time for hair and nails, the 6 year olds that is!! Out came the nail polishes and crafting embellishments, you can't have your toenails done without a diamond or flower, you know. Rosie Posie opted for a lovely sparkly lilac with daisy embellishment and Daisy Do went for fire engine red with green daisies, luckily they had bought their new and very trendy beaded sandals so they could show off the toes!
Twenty tiny toes!
All too soon it was time for mummy and girls to head for home, so our girls, their babies - Hannah and Billie the very trendily dressed 'build a bears' who get to travel extensively with their little mums, packed up Herbie (that's the car, everything has a name) and off they headed to stop off and buy new school shoes on the way home.
We sat down for a little paper reading and a film, strangely neither happened as we both fell asleep.... A lovely time was had by all, lots of relaxing and Bec cooked us a beautiful Moroccan lamb tagine with honey, almonds and sultanas, one I will be replicating. Tomorrow another week will happen, who knows what it will bring but we know on Saturday next its the grandchildren coming with mummy and daddy and a celebration of the eldest's 5th birthday. Boys of 5 and 2, so me thinks all energies must be reserved for the making of a cake on Friday and an action packed Saturday.
How lucky we are ......
