Don't all boys like diggers and dumpers?

Good afternoon, already, where did my morning go?
This morning I have been back to Aberlour and then I popped to work to get some goodies to take to the hospital, after my recent visit, for the nurses and staff who looked after me.  I now just have to make a card to go with it.  Get me being organised!  (It just doesn't happen normally).

On the cards today is my youngest boys last ever assembly in Junior school.  He has been walking around the house singing the song they are all performing later, which has had me welling up already.  I think I might need a few tissues this afternoon or I shall have to distract myself during the service.
I can't believe that tomorrow is his last day at school before heading up after the summer to the "big" school.  It doesn't seem five minutes since he started.

Back to some crafting and today more cards for you.  I really should get something else crafty out to do but I must do my orders first.
Today's cards are for a friend in the village who asked for two Uncle cards for a little boy who has become an Uncle at 6.  Apparently he is into diggers and dumpers.  This is what I came up with.

I have coloured the images with my copic markers, the top digger is playing in sand, aka sandpaper and the bottom in mud, aka sticky back felt.
I do hope Brydan likes them.

That's all from me today.  I'm away now to come up with a couple of cards for the nurses and doctors.

Enjoy the rest of your "hump" day, more from me tomorrow.

Hi Erika,
2 very super cards, and I do love those images.
You have coloured them perfectly, and the sandpaper looks so very effective as does the second one also.
Now I have a little story about my Grandsons.
About 10years ago they were visiting us from South Wales, and my DH and I thought we would take them to Diggerland which is in the Medway town in Kent.
They have all sorts of diggers to sit on and use, and we thought they would love it.
We were oh so wrong as it cost us quite a lot of money, and they were so bored with it that I lost my cool and told them what for.
They never even tried to like it either.
So your card has reminded me of that.
Mind you they were always couch potatoes, and computer games crazy.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

As always Erika you come up trumps every time.
I LOVE your beautiful cards and one little boy will as well.
We were at Thomas' last one yesterday .... Robert was handing out Tissues at the door!!!
There were plenty tears when the children sang a song they had composed for the "leavers"
