We went to the party on Saturday night leaving my folks looking after the kids. It's the first time that Neil and I have been out on our own together for about a year but I think we both enjoyed it. Matthew wasn't so pleased and did cry when we left but apparently he settled quite quickly and went to bed with no problems. Mum did say that we ought to go out more often as they'd quite happily babysit but I think I'd feel quite guilty asking them as they then have a 40 minute drive over here and the same to get home.
Also managed to make a quick birthday card for my step-dad whose birthday it was yesterday.Used some DCWV 8x8 cardstock but didn't think about an envelope to fit until afterwards which luckily I had! Also had to change the design halfway through as I ended up with a lovely black innky fingerprint right in the centre of the card. Have to say that I do love that black Brilliance ink though. The paper on here is HOTP (I'm no paper snob!) from one of their cardmaker's packs and then I used Banana Frog stamps, Scrapworks alphadotz and hugz. The rub-on is one of the newer Scrapworks ones. Gave up on making any of the other cards and did cheat by buying 2 but still need to make a new home card. I have a stinking cold at the moment so not feeling very creative but will hopefully get around to it in the next few days. In the meantime I'm off to lie down for an hour before picking the kids up from school. Jamie was going to a "creative expression" workshop today that his teachers sent him to so looking forward to hearing how that went.
