Thinking Of You

I have a simple floral card to share with you today...

Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Sketched Blooms', 'Basic Grids' & 'Fancy Sayings' / Dies - Lawn Fawn / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black; VersaMagic Dew Drops / Colouring Medium - Kuretake Zig Clean Color

I am a minimalist neat freak and having the children at home making mess on top of mess is driving me around the bend!  I have to keep reminding myself how lovely it is to have their constant company and how a few short weeks again, this is what I wanted ;) haha!

With Age Comes Wisdom

As much as the sentiment on this card makes me chuckle, I would dispute it on the evidence that my husband, who is a lot older than me (not really, just seven years but boy do I enjoy reminding him of the fact ha!) lacks bigly (apparently that's a word now? tee hee) on the wisdom front...he married me for a start! ;) lol

Supplies: Stamps - 'Fluffy Flamingos', 'Laugh Out Loud' & 'So To Speak' / Dies & Pattern Paper - Lawn Fawn / Ink - VersaFine Onyx Black / Colouring Medium - FaberCastell Polychromos

Sick of seeing them glued to their i-pads, I've sent the children out into the garden armed with water pistols...no doubt it will all end in tears!

Happy Thursday and thank you for popping by :D
