Big Numbers on Easter Sunday

Happy Easter all, just a quick post from me. I am still in my jammies and have spent the morning tidying up my craft room so I can actually get in and do something I want to do. Spent Friday and Saturday locked in here with my DD making a scrapbook for her best friend's 21st - last minute as usual it had to be finished by 6.30 last night and completely scuppered my crafting plans for the weekend. I have realised that I am quite territorial with my crafting space (you just won't believe the mess she managed to create) and my stash. I was almost hyperventilating when forced to witness the liberal spreading of bling across the table and random cutting into paperstock ....... I am glad I managed to be helpful mummy but by the time she'd left to go celebrating I needed to lie down in a darkened room (but opted for mindless TV and a bottle of wine).

Anyhow, am now debating whether to stay in PJs or get dressed which will entail shower, hairwash and probably another whole hour before I can actually sit down and craft. But first I'm going to post the card I made for my son's recent 18th so I can enter it in the Polkadoodles Big Birthdays challenge.

Teenage boys being what they are I opted for a purely digital card using my Serif Craft Artist Programme (if you haven't already got this software there is a very good deal for this at Create and craft this weekend).   I imported a digital stamp (the boy) from a polka doodles CD and then manipulated it to be a bit taller and skinner - a bit more like my son who is a 6'2" streak of nothing.

Here's the darling boy with his dad last week.

Hope the rest of your weekend goes well whatever you are doing.

Fabulous card for your son, bet he loved it. I've ordered the program this time, it was an offer I couldn't pass by.
Happy Easter to you and yours.

Serif is great isn't it! Lovely picture of Ryan and his dad too. SO.... did you go down to post the card still in your jammies or did you have that shower and get dressed first?!!!
