Bear nap!

Back with another Teddy Bo Design. I thought this was very cute and the sentiment I choose will suit a friend I know lol.

I kept this card very clean and simple for a change and just layered it onto a piece of red card.
He has been coloured with promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.

Hubby is recovering nicely from his operation but has very little voice so not much chat lol.
He is back to playing golf which is good, but only the 9 holes. Isn't life so hard!!
But it does give me peace to get on with cards in my craft room
Weather has took a turn for the better and it's very tempting to just go out to the garden.
Have a great week and thanks for dropping by.

Well I am happy to say all three weddings are now behind me and I can hopefully begin to get back into a routine. One more bump in our lives though. My hubby goes in for his operation tomorrow so keeping everything crossed and all prayers said to hope he comes out with a positive result.
Nerve wrecking!!
We are having glorious weather here at the minute, well the last two days at least lol. So everything is going at a slow pace!
Hopefully I will get more posting and more commenting done now.
Have a great week and stay safe.

So I am back safe and sound from my eldest son's wedding. We had an amazing time. So laid back, sunny skies and blistering heat. The venue was beautiful, out in the countryside and loads of green areas for the kids to play. It was all just perfect. Wales is such a lovely place, wish I could have stayed longer.

Here is the beautiful bride and groom

and here are me and my better half.


Now to get ready for our next wedding. Our niece is getting married in Trim Castle, so about an hour and a half drive from home, on Thursday. Then thankfully that's me and weddings done for the year lol.

We went shopping yesterday to get ourselves sorted for the weddings which are getting very close!
We had just arrived when we heard a weird clunk and rattle from the car and low and behold part of one of the coil springs had broken off! Great! Thankfully we were able to drive it home safely but now have to have it fixed hopefully Monday!
If we hadn't bad luck we'd have no luck at all! So many things going wrong in our family at the minute, the stress is beginning to tell!
