What a week!

Good morning blogworld!

Well aren't school holidays fun!  It's been a right rollercoaster of a week - in the SHMbO department!  Sooo glad it's Saturday and not only as it's a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin.  Where, this week, we would like to see your projects, with stamping on, for either Mother's Day or for a Special Lady.

Ribbon and gems from my stuff

So there we go, hope you like.

Thanks for all the lovely comments and advice you wonderful lot left of my last whingy, whiny, waffley post about my angst over parenting. We did as all of you said to do - stuck to our guns, got the bed we wanted for SHMbO and she loves it!  I have pictures, not of her as she wouldn't stay still for long enough, but of the room and bed, which I'll share over the weekend.

See you soon,

Fabulous card Sarah... love Uptown Girls and that heart is fabulous too!

Glad you held firm re the bed... surprisingly enough, little ones respect you more when the line is drawn... at least my youngest did... and she was a real tantrum thrower!

Big hugs and give yourself a pat on the back!
