Fathers Day 2012 ... part 1...

Morning all, finally back in the land of internet after 8 days without! On the plus side I have managed to get lots done, on the down side I still have lots to do!! I am so behind with blogging so really need to get some posts scheduled to go live daily, but finding the time is hard too!! haha! 

So what have I been upto in the last week? well last wednesday was my 30th birthday, and oh my I was spoilt, not just by Paul and the chidren but from friends and crafty friends too, I am always amazed at how many people have sent me cards and I am still receiving the odd one daily!! talk about dragging it out!! Then at the weekend we took the children to a suprise trip to Legoland ... Paul and I booked it in Jan and we stayed in a pirate themed room in the lego hotel!! it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! and then this week I have been playing catch up with everything! Our new kitchen arrives at some point tomorrow (sat) and the kitchen fitters arrive monday to fit it all ... but when we removed the tiles it pulled most of the wall off back to breeze block so guess I wont have a pretty kitchen for a short while! 

Anyway enough babbling .... Fathers day is in 2 days time, and for once I am on time ... sort of, I have made a card for my FIL, and have a WIP for my Dad (whose card should have been in the post ages ago but we will take it out in August) and then last night I spent 3.5 hours crafting with the 2 children, they both made a card for Paul .... poor Maddison was hard work as she wanted to make a purple and pink card, but we settled on orange and purple! phew! (will show these soon) This card is for my FIL ... 


Papers - Cosmo Cricket
Die - MFT Die-namics camera, MFT Die-namics Corner die
Punch - Stampin up Tiny Tag


Inside
Stamp - House Mouse say cheese! 

So what do you think? I reckon he will love it, especially as he is camera mad and has just bought himself a new camera! Also we have booked him on a photography course to learn how to use his new camera and it also comes with a print from the day! Paul has one too so they can spend some time together! 

Now I thought I might enter some challenges as I dont remember the last time I did this so here goes ..... 

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:

Hello stranger! I know I've already wished you a happy birthday and you'll be pleased to know I started your card today lol. I'm just getting back into the swing of things after the wedding. I reckon your card is just about perfect for you FIL Tams. The pp is fab...love the one on the camera. One day I'd like to take a photography course as what I see through the lens doesn't always come out the way I think it should lol. xx
