Happy Birthday Michele
Good Morning Ladies,
Now today is Michele's actual birthday, yesterday was her 'official' birthday or just a warm up for this big day, Well turning 50 is a huge thing you know!!! You take it easy doing all that walking Michele, remember there are 'Special Seats' on buses etc for the Elderly!!
Seriously though I wish you a wonderful day and a year filled with good health and lots of love and happiness XX
My card was made using the Eastern Beauty Stamp set, by Stampin'Up!, It has lots of small elements that allow you to build pretty patterns like I did on the card above, now bearing in mind I was not a stamper 8 months ago, this card makes me feel quite proud, I loved sitting and playing with all the little stamps, it was as therapeutic as colouring in. I totally recommend it.
We had parents evening bag school last night, well what can I say, we were expecting mixed reviews based on Sophie and Lucy's comments about each subject, we saw two of the teachers altogether as they are in the same groups for Geography and Spanish, the teachers summed the girls up pretty well, they are both perfectionists and as a result won't answer a group question if they aren't 100% sure they are correct, but I think that most self conscious teenager would be like that! Lucy's Biology teacher loves her, says she has a fantastic attitude to work, she said that she uses Lucy's work books to show the year 10's what they should aim for, as she said they were perfect!
You can imagine what the Art department had to say about Sophie, there were 4 teachers sat around a huge work area with all of Sophie's work spread out before them, how that girl fit her head back through that door is a mystery, she is definitely their star pupil!! Her work is being featured in a Royal Academy of Art magazine !!!
They want her to experiment with Oil paints next, she is a little reluctant but they were very encouraging, explaining that she can start with almost a 'wash' of oil paint, thinned out with either Linseed Oil or turps, she could then draw over it with pencil and building up. It was so lovely to see all the teachers bouncing ideas off each other to encourage Sophie. We came out with big smiles and had big hugs xxx
Pat and I had a lovely day today too, talked more than crafting but that's nothing new, I have to say that sharing craft goodies is so much more fun than playing with it on your own! XXX
Watford meet up for Thursday 1st June does that work for you ladies that can make it ??? We can move it if it doesn't work out xx
Well I'm off to spend the day with my husband today, Yay!!!
Love and hugs to all of you,
