It's Your Day !


OMG - what a week so far !!. It started heavily snowing here at 4pm on Monday and by 4.50pm the pavements and road had a light covering and based on the fact i hate driving in the snow i decided to go and pick H up early from after school care, and we were home by 5.30pm - Alan on the other hand left London at 5.10pm (works next door to the Gherkin), got to Haywards Heath station at 6.20pm, rung me at 7.40pm to say he was still in the station car park !!, he finally made it home at 10.45pm, and we are only 18 miles from the station !!, basically he said, so many people had abandoned their cars and he was driving on snow covered ice!!
On Tuesday H's school was shut and Alan worked from home and then in the night H was bringing up bile, so wasn't able to go to school today, but he is ok now and is going back tomorrow.

When i saw this image, i just knew i had to have the stamp (and i know my blogging friend Janice, will love it too) !, the papers, edged borders and ticket are My Mind's Eye - 'Ooh La La For Him', the sentiment is Paula Pascal - 'All Year Round' ( I so miss doing her classes, she has decided to focus on Sizzix and her photography more), the twine and charm are from my stash.

Your card is wonderful Sam. I love that fun image and the papers and colours are gorgeous.
It is unusual for us 'down South' to get the snow isn't it. I think that's why the roads are so bad when we do get it. Hopefully that will be the end of it now.
Hugs Sue

Hope your week gets better, soon be the weekend. Fab card, love that sweet image. Must get started on some Father's Day cards

The weather certainly has been a mixed bunch hasn't it Sam, we can but hope spring will arrive sooner rather than later.

That's an adorable PB image which I don't think a seen before, I love that or I'm not as observant as I would like to think. But it makes a great Father's Day card.

Thanks so much sharing with us at Penny Black and More challenge this month.
