Morning Peeps!!

How are you all today? I am a very proud mummy today. Last night was Little Mo's parents evening and I was so nervous about it! we sat down in the hall to wait for our appointment and Mo's head teacher came to see us to say hello and how well Mo is doing this year!! that was lovely and then we went in to see his teacher and she said he is doing really really well too!! I cannot tell you how relieved I am as he still gets so nervous about going to school and change but I love knowing he is happy once he gets there. The only thing he needs to work on is his fine motor control when he is writing, he is left handed so his hand covers up what he has written and he struggles with that.
She showed us an absolutely beautiful poem Mo had written yesterday about daffodils. I am going to ask for a copy of it today so I can show you it because she was so very proud of it.

It was just such a special proud beaming mummy and daddy moment. We had gotten him a new scooter in the sales put away for easter ( isn't keen on easter eggs!) so we decided to give him that as a reward. He loves to be outside and he was so excited he was out as soon as he had opened it last night trying it out!!

Any whoo!! enough mummy waffles!! onto my cute card!! a friend at work asked me if I could make her a birthday card to give to her boyfriend (...I know!! get me!!another manly one!!!!!!) 
I loved kathy's new sketch over on the sketch file  and here it is, isn't it awesome? I love the layers...though I turned mine into hearts!! If you click on the piccy it will take you straight to the sketch file blog :)
I have 2 favourite parts on this card!! of course one of them has to be that cute, cute, cute little footballer and the other one is the little green field heart with the centre spot on it!! I love my new Big shot!!!! I had so much fun cutting the little hearts out!!
I dug out some 'manly' brown and white checked ribbon and tied a dinky little bow to snuggle the heart!! and a few doodled kisses in some of the hearts too.....:)

  1. Love this card Lou - fab LO and stunning design.
    Jack is left handed too and he really hated writing at primary school when they were teaching hand-writing with an ink pen as he always smudged his work. Being a bit of a perfectionist he got really upset with himself. Now that he can use a biro - he's ok :o)
    Have a fab day.
