I've had better days!

It's never good when your 3yr old manages to throw up in your face is it... it's been a bad day... and I think that's probably quite enough information!




Before the 'incident' I was playing with a fab set of Darkroom Door stamps from Papercrafts TV called Vintage Automobiles - LOVE this set!  I've never tried Darkroom Door stamps before, they come in a lovely silver tin and they'll look great on my shelf - I'm going to have to collect more of these sets!

I just wanted to make some simple cards ready for if and when I decide to open my Etsy shop.  All stamps, including the small stamps used for the backgrounds, and the sentiments, are from the same set, stamped in 'rich cocoa' memento ink on Stampin' Up kraft card.

Dex is asleep now - I had to get hubby to leave work early so he could pick Morgan up from school, as I was in no state to go anywhere!  Hoping he'll feel a bit better when he wakes up.  Off to catch up on some commenting while I can...

Hi Lisa, what great cards - simple but elegant and the last one is just great. That sentiment is brilliant! Sorry you've had a bad day. Wonderful how children can throw up at a moments notice isn't it! And normally all over you, not anywhere you are pointing them (i.e. floor, bucket, loo!) but, oh no, you!!!! Hope little one is better soon. Sarah

Oh dear Lisa, that wouldn't have been nice, reminded me of last week at school when a pupil threw up on one of the teacher's feet! At least it was your own child! Hope they feel better soon. Great cards. Hugs, Claire x
