Jubilee Weekend....

I'm really looking forward to this weekend - John has been in China, Lewis has been on a residential and poor poor Eleanor has had a reaction to something that has bitten her and her legs doubled in size and are black :-(
This week I have been finally diagnosed asthmatic and have been given two inhalers......so yes I am certainly looking forward to putting this week behind me.

I chose Red White and Blue for my card today to follow
the theme of the Jubilee weekend.

As promised.....

..here is my second card for my Mum from John and I.

The papers are so delicious but were a free sample from a magazine and haven't been able to source it elsewhere :(

The Nesties I think suit this card perfectly and the Tonic Studios
butterfly is a cute addition.

Happy Birthday to you.....

Very stressful in my house this week - SATS week for Eleanor and the hardest job is not getting her to do practice papers but to get her to go to bed at a reasonable time....doesn't help when her older brother won't go neither just to help me !! -Dad is in Japan so not much help this week !!

It will be my mum's birthday this Saturday - I have made two cards one from Lewis and Eleanor and one from myself.....I am showing you the one I made from the children today - will be back with the one from me later.

I wanted to enter into the challenge over at LCI so I based my card on that - Anything But Square .

Teens...

I started Pilates a couple of weeks ago to help me with my breathing and hopefully tone me up - I really miss my walking but due to my chest being so bad I'm not allowed at the moment.......but boy did I not imagine such 'gentle' exercise would kill me so much. I have exercised nearly all my life from aerobics to simple walking and I have come home sweaty and tired BUT with Pilates I came home absolutely revitalised BUT the following morning I discovered muscles I didn't know existed....and it's true what they say - you do feel so much better and I'm sure I look better already - LOL !!!!!
Here's a gorgeous digi-stamp from LCI - I was able to put to use for a 15 year old friend's daughter....isn't it just fabulous.
