My Weekend

AT last just getting peace and quiet to sit and type a post.

Had a busy weekend. I was working a late shift on Saturday but have to say it was a good shift. quite enjoy Saturday's at work. Hubby's Sister and her hubby were up from Loch Lommond on Saturday so they were there when I got home. Only stayed over for one night but it was fun non the less . Had a couple of games of Cleudo, not played it in years most of the fun was figuring out what we were supposed to be going. Wine and board games don't tend to mix.

On Sunday as it's was Father's day Steven had the choice so we headed for Castle Fraser as there was a Vintage Steam Rally on. Have to say had great fun and the boys loved it. I enjoyed looking round all the fabby stalls. Met a lovely lady who made cards. I forgot to ask her name but her cards were lovely she even had a few Miss Anya ones which I loved. It was such a beautiful day we had a picnic there too and enjoyed the sunshine. The boys were clarted (covered) in suncream. (Note to self... make sure to get covered too) I have a touch of sun burn on my chest. Shocking really as I am always telling people off for sunburn and i end up doing it myself. TISK TISK.

Today the boys had a Homecoming concert with the playgroup. It's The Homecoming year here in Scotland so the boys learned a good few Scottish songs and sang them with the rest of playgroup in the village hall. They were ever so cute with their wee white tops and tartan bow ties. the wee one Riley was very good and sat ever so well. He's only two and half but towers over some of the older ones. My eldest was very good too but I'm waiting for some pics of him as he was at the other side and I could not get a good shot :( Anyway here is my little one Riley

Oh and before I forget here is the card I made for Steven's Fathers day the boys picked this one as daddy is a huge fan of golf and it kinda resembles him i the hair department (don't tell him I said that LOL)

The stamp if from Dimension Fourth and I paper pieced the wee character. I used one of The Glitter Girls border bars for the top and one of my Sizzix alphabets for the wording . Very simple card but he loved it. Well he said he did Sorry could figure out how to delete a pic once it was UL as I forgot to rotate it 1st. Hope you don't get a sore neck looking at it .

Thanks for looking
