I needed to make a card for hubbys uncle so looked for a sketch I liked - well might as well do a challenge! Found sketch saturday so had a go. Image from Calre Curds fellas range, coloured with promarkers. Card blank papermania and papers stampin up. Large button from stash and the smaller ones are stampin up too. Great Sketch I really enjoyed it.
Had a visit from sister in law and her hubby last night and Grandad too. We had a takeaway curry which was lovely mmmmmm. A lovely sociable evening although what was the nicest thing was how much they fussed both James and Meghan encouraging them to play the piano and generally showing lots of interest in them and their lives. Both of them shone at the attention and it was lovely to see James laughing and smiling again after the disappointment from Goldsmiths. They chatted to him about his options and provided him with a good sounding board. This sounds like we dont but im sure every parent recognises that their kids take more notice of advice from others after all we are only mum and dad and what do we know! I think this evening provided James with a good perspective on what to do next and he is able to move on to the next hurdle with his confidence restored if still a little dented. I thanked them all as they left - they just behaved so naturally but their love and care meant even more than usual last night. Thanks Linda, Stu and Harry you are my heros today :0)
