Saturday challenge

Hi ya everyone,
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
I know I haven't been around lately but it's is still school holidays (they end Monday) and have been busy keeping the kiddies happy with trips to the beach, play dates, shopping for uniforms and books, swimming lessons etc....
I spent last Wednesday morning at the hospital because Luke has tonsillitis and on Monday my Doc informed me that I have a fracture in my foot so I guess it is off to have an x-ray. booo whooooooo :(
One fantastic thing that happened, was I had a great 2 hour long chat with my Cuz, Heidi aka The Crafty Goat Girl we laughed and laugh and then laughed some more , always good to have a giggle or two, or in our case 20 or
So that's enough about my week this is my entry for a great challenge over at The Secret Crafter where the challenge is set by Wendy. You have to use hearts.
I have used a fab stamp by Pollycraft this one is part of the Sherbert collection, coloured with my Sugar Loaf markers. The blue background is sponged on with blue ink. The other multi-coloured background was done using Tim Holtz alcohol inks and applicator, the sentiment is a stamp by Kaszazz. I used some double sided tape and popped some glitter on it to create a border, this is a great idea if you can't get straight lines.
I'm off now time to start cooking my babes some tea and get them, cleaned. They are also going to clean their rooms up while I'm cooking they don't know it yet so sssssshhhhhhh it's a surprise. I can hear them moaning already.............hehehehehe
Have a super day/night and maybe I will be back tomorrow. I still have a zillion books to cover, poop!
