Weekends go so fast

Sunday night already, I feel a bit ripped off as last weekend was meant to be a nice long weekend, unfortunately I got sick on the Wednesday night and was off work for the rest of the week and really didn't come right until the following Thursday so I spent the long weekend in bed.  This weekend has just rocketed past and although it was a busy weekend I just don't know where the time goes and I feel i need a "real" long weekend to get everything achieved!

I have been baking again today to fill the tins for the kids this time we made fudge, Afghans (Nigel makes these) Kisses and chocolate peppermint cupcakes (the kids fav could you tell?).
I was meant to make some shortbread so I might do that tomorrow after basketball as two lovely kind ladies stopped and helped Abby on Friday when she took a tumble over her handlebars of her bike.  They rang me to come and get her,.picked her and her bike up and looked after her until my mum and dad got there (they were the closest) so I want to bake and drop off a thank you card to them - good to see there are still some caring people out there.
Anyway on to the cards that I made over the last couple of weeks:

All of these images are from the amazing artist Krista from Saturated Canary, she is super talented and the last card you see above was an amazing fee image that she kindly gave to all her followers.  She is SO cute and I just love colouring her in.
Abby also made a card which is VERY rear in our house hold usually she is at Karate, playing some sport or at her computer but Krista organised a "kids card swap" using her images and she paired the kids up, Abby is writing and sending her card to a girl in Sweden.  For someone that does not create all that often I though she did a good job, here is her card coloured in with distress inks:
And just for Mandy B here is a cute image I know you will enjoy:
AWWW he is so cute!  Snuggled up on the pillow if you please cuddling all his toys - and no we didn't put them there to take the photo he truly snuggled up with them!

Have a great week everyone and thanks so much for stopping bye :-)
