My peace is shattered!

That's it, the end of peace for me! My 2 girls are back and the first thing they done when they came in the door was fight with each other! I have to admit it though, I really missed them for the 2 nights they were gone. We took them out on their bikes up to the park and let them play for a while. We bought them both bikes last Christmas but they have only been on them twice as they were a bit too big but now they fit fine. Chiara was so cute, she couldn't cycle most of the way up to the park because it's all uphill. Not that there is any big hills but it's not flat. But on the way back she was delighted because she could do it all on her own, her little legs were going ten to the dozen lol, and she's shouting look Mummy and Daddy I can cycle and use my brake as she forgets to steer and I have to go running after her before she crashes into a parked car lol.
All the kids fell asleep not long after we got home so I sat down to make this card for Cutie Sunday. It's a great sketch this week and you know how I love sketches lol.
I love this Sugar Nellie image I got from Lorraine, she is just the sweetest and such a joy to colour.
I have use some more papers from my Papermania Sweet Nothings 6x6 pack which I got for £1!! I couldn't believe it, 50 sheets for a quid, you can't grumble at that now can you?
I was going to sew real stitches but I couldn't find any needles!! I have loads of them but could I find them? No because I moved them from where they are normally kept and can't remember where I have put them! So I had to just draw them instead and I didn't make a very good job of it either. I didn't look at the opposite sides when I was drawing them so they are not even in the same places, ah well you win some you lose some as they say.
My large flower is from the Prima bigger bag and all the rest are Prima Sweet n Sassy Cinderella which are all available at Aries Crafts as is the charm I have used. They have a huge selection of flowers and a good price too, also remember they do free postage too, what more do you want lol.
Spacers, brad and gems are all from my stash and the sentiment was done on the computer.

Thanks for looking
Hugs Lora x

This is another beauty! I'm trying to teach Jade how to ride her tricycle that I got for her. As tall as she is her feet still don't quite go all the way down when the pedal is down. And she can't peddle & steer either. But she sure makes me laugh. Oh, they grow so fast. Enjoy them.
