We get the key's tomorrow ......

Happy Thursday ......

Yes ..... only one more sleep until we get the keys to the new house.  Don't know if I'm looking forward to the move or not!
We've still got lots to pack ..... but the removal men are not here until Feb 6th so there's no rush. We'll start moving the small stuff .... and my craft room this weekend.

I took a day off yesterday from all the packing ....... well it was Christopher's birthday and we had to celebrate (another blip in the dry January!)  And, one of my best friends is leaving the island shortly and moving back across to the UK, so we got together for a quick coffee while we had the chance.  I will miss her when she leaves.

As I said my little boy was 28 yesterday!!! ....... now that makes me feel old!

I did make him a birthday card .......

Silly Birthday Monsters from Your Next Stamp ....... simply stamped, coloured and fussy cut.  There are matching dies to the stamps which I think are about to find their way to my new craft room ..... not that they're hard to fussy cut, I'm just getting lazy!

He's been coloured using ZIG markers and a little touch of metallic glaze pen, and then attached to the card using foam pads.

The background was made using simple splatter stamps, which I think are by Kaisercraft, and one of the sentiments from the Silly Monsters

I also added a few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops here and there .....

There was a little surprise inside too ........ (apart from the cash!!)

The son definition from Visible Image ......

And a cute little wobbly monster

We did go to the pub last night to see Chris .... had tea there, a celebratory drink (or two ..... my first G&T's of 2018!!)  and then we joined in with the pub quiz.  Considering we scored very little in the music round and the picture round was really hard .... we were victorious!!!!  Our prize .... a £25 drinks voucher to spend in the bar.  That can wait until February!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
It's back to packing boxes today, and emptying bookcases I think ...... oh joy!

Cheerio until next time ....


  1. fun card, perfect for the child in the 28yr old :)

  2. Happy belated to Chris! The card is so fun that you made him ... bet he loved it. All the best with the move, Linda! xx

  3. What a fun card!! I am sure your son was excited to recieve it.
