Cards I've Made

Sweet Sketch Wednesday card for 
Sketch #131

Hi everyone, yes I'm still alive and kicking.
I'm so sorry I haven't posted any cards since January.  But since then I've had time to make a few cards but not the time to post them.  I've been snowed under with a family wedding, taking my son to University which is a six-hour road trip from our house and a house full of visitors, cooking washing and cleaning.  My life hasn't felt like my own.  Once some of the visitors left, I then had my bestie from London staying and my sister from Cairns in Australia.  I haven't laughed so much in years, to the stage I was crying with laughter and nearly wetting myself at the same time.  And there wasn't a lot of alcohol involved just good clean fun during that time it was fun times all around.  But I must admit my eldest had been at boarding school for 7 years and I saw him most weekends now he's so far away from me it's quicker for me to fly down to see him rather than drive and I'm missing him dearly but I can't tell him that.  I've just got to get more involved with the business, housework and more crafting and I can't wait for him to arrive home on Good Friday for two weeks mid-term break.  Then he goes back to Uni and my youngest will be home for a two-week break from boarding school.  I can't wait.

Take care everyone and I'll see you all very soon.
