Hopefully, as you read this, me and hubby will be in SHMbO's school assembly watching her receive her 50 merits certificate. I'm sure those of you with kids will either have them at a school, or been to a school, where they get some sort of reward for working hard, being good, thoughtful, helpful, - etc.
Well at her school they get a merit for that sort of thing. SHMbO has now got 50 of those merits - at that point home gets a letter asking you to come into Monday morning assembly and watch them get presented with a certificate. This is where we are right now.
Of course, another reason for posting this is that it's a new challenge over at The Cutie Pies and my last DT card for this fabulous challenge for 6 months. I'm taking a break while the work is carried out on our house - of course in typical tradesman fashion our builder seems to think that we don't mind if he delays the start of the work slightly, ummm nope!! So as yet all that's happened is that we are packing up and clearing out the office - no proper demolishing so far!!
Anyway - I digress, my last challenge with The Cuties for around 6 months - as they've very kindly allowed me a break but are taking me back!
This time the theme is 'Lots of Layers', and we have two wonderful sponsors
they currently have a Spring Spectacular Event with reductions on nearly all products throughout the store including ribbon, twine, charms, pins, rubber stamps, pearls, rhinestones and much more. Pop over and grab a bargain while stocks last! Further reductions available in our sale section too.
and one lucky winner will win
There is also the chance of a GDT with The Cuties - how fab is that!!
The DT were allowed an image or two to play with and this is my card:
The arty farty:
The close up:
Cedar Chest Designs - Shy Alice
coloured with a combo of Promarkers and Copics
Nesties - oval and scalloped oval
C.C. Designs cutters - Umbrella
My Mind's Eye - the sweetest thing
Craftwork cards - sentiment
Dies to Die For - Viva pearl pen
Velvet ribbon - from my stuff
And that's all folks! I'll see you as a Cutie in around six months or so. Ladies - it's been fab, it will be fab again and you're not getting rid of me that easily! I'll be back!!!
PS - Thanks to all you wonderful bloggy friends who left the fantastic supportive comments on my whingy, whiny post about having too many cards. I'm soooo glad I'm not the only one - makes me feel heaps better!!
