Monday, Monday so good to me, holiday time.

Good afternoon all, boy I've had a lazy morning today.
How was your weekend?
Work was as busy as I thought it would be on Saturday and the time just flew by, I only wish I had an extra couple of pairs of hands, the only way I could have achieved what I needed to in the time allotted.  A nice relaxing evening followed.
On Sunday my hubby and I took my youngest and his girlfriend to Landmark for the day and had a super time.  It was really quiet, which is most unusual so we got to take part in all the activities as many times as we wanted.  No queueing whatsoever so the kids had great fun.
We are all now off for a fortnight, Easter break, nothing planned at all, hoping my eldest will do some studying for his exams.  I'd like to get some work done around the house, some crafting and a few more days out and about, as always.

Today I thought I'd share a couple of bespoke card orders.  The first is for my mum who's friends daughter will be hitting the grand age of 21.  I was told it must have a horse on.
Now I don't have any horse stamps so I bet you can't guess where I got this from?

Did you guess correctly?
This horse is a child's colouring in page available on-line.  Now of course you can't use these images for profit but as it was a favour for my mum, I don't see the problem.  I just printed it off and coloured it in, as any other child would, I used my copic markers.  I then made the rosette with ribbon and a button.  The inside reads, "Yee haw, saddle up and enjoy your 21st birthday Lauren!"
Mum has now received the card and thinks Lauren will love it.

My second card is for my best friend and she asked for a card with a touch of football.

The 40th is die cut from my cricut machine and the buttons are from Dress it up.  Inside reads, "Today you are man of the match!"
A simple masculine, football card.

Well, that is all I have to show you today, I really should be off food shopping or doing some housework but I am tempted to craft instead, so bad!
Enjoy your week, whatever you have planned.  x

Hi Erika,
oh what really great cards.
Love the fab idea of the horse one, and clever you for thinking of it.
The 2nd is great too, and I love the very fab design of that too.
Have a lovely Eater Break with you family.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
