Swimming at last

My second post today and a very quick one for Friday Sketchers before I blink and miss the deadline:

I made this for my Mum. She lives in Spain and has been a star this year, flying over to look after me and my little fella Zac for the last two weeks of my pregnancy and the first few days of life with Blake. Then flying back again to look after me when James went back to work as I couldn't do much for 6 weeks after the operation. This is to say thank you and well done too - my Mum is shall we say of pensionable age (!) and has finally braved it and been swimming for the first time. With those giant foam spaghetti floats for help of course. So proud of her.

So I used Doodlebug papers and rub ons and the fab download is from Bee Crafty - only 99p - how ace is that?

Got to go, James is off to football now.



  1. Such a sweet card and good on your mum for starting to swim.
