Sorry you're leaving.

Good morning all, how are you this Monday morning?
I had a crazy day at work Saturday, we are short of staff just now with five part time jobs up on the website, lots of work not enough pairs of hands!
Folk say there are no jobs about but nobody is applying for them either.

Harbour day also seemed to be a success too although the weather could have been a little better, it did mainly stay dry which was a bonus.  I unfortunately didn't make it down as by the time I got home, got washed and changed and put the tea on the event was winding down.
My little one then decided to throw up all over his bedroom, which was nice!  Too much "rubbish" whilst down at the harbour I think as he has been fine since.  He has had a bit of a cold of late so maybe it's just the tail end of that.
School rules are that they stay off 48 hours after being sick so I have a little helper today!
The joys!
Back tomorrow mind as I am working tomorrow and Wednesday.
Yesterday was a quiet one as the eldest boy was working and the little one not great, lots of chilling and a little reading plus the bonus of getting all the ironing done and dusted.

On to today, late on last week I got a phone call from my BFF asking if I could do her a leaving card for the following day.  Anyone else I would have asked for more notice but she always has my back so I shall always have hers!

It was an A5 card so that all the employees can sign it.  The image is paper pieced using Hero arts set Big flower pattern.  I love this flower set and have used it loads and loads.  It really is great for paper piecing.  I've used scraps of pearlescent card to create the flower and added some bling in the centre by craft buddy.
A quick CAS card.

I had planned to get a little creative yesterday but I am really into my reading just now, once I start a good book I find it really hard to put down.  I am reading The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, book four finished and sitting on my hands trying to avoid ordering book five.  I really want to.  ;)
I must get some orders completed today first and I also need to think about Christmas, scary but very true I am adamant that I will not be rushing around last minute again this year.  (I know it will happen, it always does, there are just not enough hours in the day!)

That's all from me today, I'm away to print some colouring in pages for the wee man in the hope I can crack on with my jobs.  Enjoy your Monday.

Your flower stamp certainly packs a wonderful punch on this card, very pretty and bold image. Love the CAS design, one that I struggle with, can't leave the white space alone, lol. Hope your lad feels better soon.

Hope your wee one is better by now Erika.
Now Outlander is fab, I read them a few years ago and Diana Gabbeldon came to Inverness and gave a talk, read some of one of her books too, she is just delightful, could have listened to her all night. I know you can get the film, but we don.t have whatever tv system it's on.

Your card is just lovely, the colours are beautiful and I love the CAS look. Enjoy your evening, Kate x
