week 12, up, down and all over the place!


Up , down and all over the place is how we have all felt the past few days....
After resigning herself to not going away, Em picked up and we decided to drive her up to York ourselves yesterday to join the school trip.Except that she was ill again early yesterday morning so all plans were cancelled again..... We are now hoping to take a short break up there in May , just need to check that the girls are okay to miss school that week.Have a horrible feeling it will be the week school assessments are being done so keep your fingers crossed for us! Cannot believe that the Dr's wanted to charge me £11.50 for a sick note for Em though...!
Yesterday we had glorious weather and Em picked up again after spending some time out in the garden.She is home today and currently snuggled up on the sofa watching various DVD's!
So whilst she was comfy I sneaked into the kitchen to get my card for Emily's prompt this week done! Love that I can get this done quickly as they are so small!
So here's mine for this week.I had touble trying to think of something I believe in , to be honest...and I made a point of not looking at anyone else's card so that I wasn't influenced! I ended up with 'I believe...that to have true friends, you first have to be one'. I am enough lucky to have some very good friends who there for me when I am down , who listen to me when I moan and are happy for me when I'm cheerful.I think you know who you are...:)
I used
Hedi Swapp tape
Lil Davis chipboard I
Ki Memories Gel Candy flower
Stamps Away letter stamps, written over in permanent pen as my stamp pad is rubbish!

Right, am now off to check out everyone else's cards!

Gorgeous card, Sue. I love the colours & I totally agree with what you believe. My Grandma always used to say, if you don't love yourself, you can't expect anyone else to. So it is good to love other people but make a bit of space for you.
I love myself by making half an hour every day for a luxurious bath & body cream session!!!
