Rugby Dad

Happy Friday !!

I was asked  to make a Rugby card for one of my friends but the difficulty was for the past three years she has asked for the same thing so I'm running out of images.

This time I came up with something totally different........

A Mother's Day gift.....

Hi Everyone

I have spent most of my week making Mother's day presents and thought I would share 
a couple with you .....



Mon petit French exchange student Jonas goes 
home tomorrow and I'm gutted - I've loved having him here and it's been great 
company for Lewis. 
I am not as apprehensive about Lewis going now as I know they get on so well.
Here is a photo I took of them walking -
 Lewis is probably 5'7" and he is only 4 weeks older than 'petit Jonas' ;0)

Going Places


Hello


Today's card is for the latest challenge over at Clearly Besotted

Looking at the DTs cards - which are stunnalicious I decided to steer away from butterflies and chose the airplane from the 'Going Places'  stamp and die set, added a couple of MFT clouds and here you go.....
