Using up a few scraps!

Good afternoon everyone!!!!

Does anyone else have a totally over flowing box of scrap bits of paper/card in their craft space? !! I definitely do and it grows everytime I tidy away (... generally 2 mins before my big sis or Fi are due to arrive and I want them to think my crafty garage is tidy!!!! lol!)
I was sorting through mine yesterday to donate a few bits to my sister sam , here's her blog ,who has just started making cards with her own digi's. She is doing fabulously and asked if I had a few spare bits so I searched through and found her some but also found myself a few too!!!!

Then this morning my lovely friend carol inspired me 100% by showing me a card she had made ( she made a little cricut file for it too but I haven't swept the dust off my cricut to use it yet!!!) so I used the picture she showed me and followed it like a sketch. Thank you carol xxxxxx

I wanted to make a quick hello card and this is what came out of it!! awwwww!!!
Using my gorgeous scraps of funkyhand paper from a halloween card I made last year I made the card base, bit of cuttlebugging for my scalloped ovals and of course a Tiddly Inks kitty!!!
I added a bit of red here and there to give it a splash of colour!! and a tiny tag saying 'hello'.

So that was my 'make of the day'!!!!
This afternoon Little Mo and I have been out to watch Ryan playing football, his team won 12-0 and Mo was very impressed by Ryan's 2 goals!! he kept shouting " thats my brother!!" to any poor bystander that looked his way!!! romfl!!!! the sun was shining beautifully but it was very windy so I have returned home feeling like an ice cube!!!
Its back to school for Mo tomorrow and he is not overly impressed at all, he has told me he "cant possibly go back to school until november" why november I couldn't tell you but he wants to come back to nursery and be with one of his old teachers, Karen, instead!! Bless him!! I have to be honest, I am nervous about going back to work too, it sees like such a long time since the start of the holidays and I will miss Mo dreadfully, oh the joys of parenting!!!
Oh well, I had better go cook lasagne and watch Wall-E ( ....for the zillionth time!!)
