Busy week …

Had a few home problems this week – wish there was an easy way of deciding whether it’s autism or normal pre-teen boy that is causing the challenging behaviour from my son …

Not had much time for crafting but had cards to make for best friend and aforesaid son as well as my brother (see previous post)

Here’s my best friend’s card – hope she likes it


and my son’s – he is hooked on Mario Kart – I’ve even managed to get a Mario Cake from Sainsbugs as well …

George saves the day!

George has come up trumps again! 🙂

Had three cards to make this week – two for the same person and one for my long lost brother 🙂 [Long story but only discovered he existed four years ago!!!]

The ones for a chap at our church were easy with George at Work … he works in the building trade and also does a lot of DIY so I used George the bricklayer and George the handyman …


I had to draw the ladder myself for the handyman – think I did a reasonable job personally!!!
The bricklayer has ‘brick’ texture under the bricks from a fiskar texture plate – just starting to get to grips with these and not too good at it yet !

My brother works for Snap-On tools (hope I’ve got that right!) and so the Handyman George was ideal again …


I used paper from dcwv – retro and also words for the backing – ribbon was from Let’s Make cards issue 15 and the ‘brother’ retro chipboard was from an issue of Let’s Make cards earlier this year (12???)
