It's getting closer!

Hello out there, it's me again!

Well this time this is not a challenge card, or one made 'just because', but made for a lovely lady who runs one of the groups that daughter and I go to.  Unfortunately it is finishing up this week, and as we have been going on and off for a couple of years and we have really enjoyed it, I thought I would make her a card and daughter is going to pick her a present.

The stamp is by Whimsy Stamps and I got it from Quixotic Paperie recently (along with a lot of other stamps - have I mentioned I have a stamp addiction ;-) ).  I liked the look of it on the website, and I liked it even more when it arrived.  I coloured the image with my new toys - Prismacolour pencils and used Basic Grey porcelain paper pad - with flowers and button from my stock.  I had already coloured the image when I googled for some inspiration - the layout and the black matting came from that search - but I couldn't find the image when I went to the website and it came up so small that I don't know the details.

I have another 3 more cards to make by the end of the week and we have a Tourist Board inspection on the holiday cottage tomorrow and I've got to clean but cards always take priority.

Are you wondering about the title of the post - what is getting closer I can hear you cry.  September I answer, and my little girl starting in Reception.  We had letters from Nursery today outlining their Reception class inductions, I was welling up just getting the letter in my hand.  I know it probably sounds silly to all those of you out there who have been through this before, but it's the first (and only time) for me, I know she will be fine - I won't!

We have until the 26th to find out officially if she is going to this school, but as the Council say over 90% of parents get their first choice hopefully all will be well.

Anyway, waffling doesn't get the hoovering done.

Cheerio all,

Aww so adorable Sarah! Lovely image, fab colours and layout. I know just how you feel about the school thing - my youngest starts nursery in a couple of weeks and that makes me wobbly enough, wonder how bad I'll be when he starts school! Lisa x
