Gigs and parties galore

What a glorious morning, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, it just makes you feel good doesn't it. It's been a really busy week with two more really busy ones ahead so a relaxing weekend is just the ticket. Looks like I bought my new garden furniture at just the right time. Amber has had her first two taster days at the high school, Tuesday was a bit traumatic but Friday went well so I think she is looking forward to September. The next couple of weeks will see me packing her off on her first overnight school trip, goodness she is soooo excited I'm just wondering if out bank balance will ever recover!! lol. We've got parties to go to, the prom, school oscar night (with an X-factor finalist as the entertainment, I don't know which one)and I've got a craft class booked, a whole Saturday with like minded people and loads of other things in the calender. By the time the holidays come I will be well and truly exhausted and the first Saturday we are having a trip up to Newcastle to see Iron Maiden, followed by swift packing because I'm taking the children, my parents and my brother and his son for a week away. I'm sure Paul will enjoy the peace and quiet amidst his gig schedule. He's going to the Iron Maiden tour four times!!!!!!! He's also going this Friday to see the big four at Sonisphere - just a little bit jealous because I love Metallica.

Any way I came to talk about the card - it's for one of my best and oldest friends, we were at school together and lost touch for a short while but thanks to the wonders of facebook we are back together. She is not looking forward to the big one so I've been subtle with the 40s. The image is LOTV, I thought I'd picked shades similar to the backing paper but I went too green. I'm sure the pens I picked had more blue tones on the promarker colour sheet I made. They also look much greener on the photo then on real life. I have stamped the background with Kanban stamps. I made the flower by using the Stampin up butterfly punch and turned the wings into petals which I ran through an embossing plate.

Don't forget to check out my Blog Candy it finishes on Tuesday.

Hope your having a lovely weekend.
