Long post with random stuff

It is a Saturday night and I am making up for not posting for a long time. As I have time on my hands tonight, here is a long post on pics of my boys (and I am in some of the pics too for a change) and some cards I made over the last nine months....I know it was a long time ago:)

I start with pics of my boys:

Luke and I 

Aiden and I 

Luke at bedtime

Aiden and Luke before a fancy dress party...Sam's I think. 

 Stephen, Diana and Priya at Stephen's impromptu 39th birthday dinner on 26 Jan 2012. 

The boys and I at Stephen's impromptu birthday dinner on 26 Jan 2012.

My tired wee boy, Luke after an exciting day at nursery as a 'tiger' 

Aiden and Luke at Aiden's Tae Kwon Do graduation in Nov 2011. 

 I made this cards for Fiona's parents' 50th wedding anniversary (a very rare thing nowadays). I know they are not the usual colours for a golden anniversary card but I thought making a heart with 50 buttons captures the essence of the celebration:)

A birthday card for my twin sister. 

 A birthday card for my younger sister. As all of our birthdays are in Oct, I tend to make similar cards.

A birthday card for Aiden's wee friend. 

Below are Easter cards I made for Easter 2011. As Ash Wed is on 22 Feb 2012 i.e. the start of Lent, I thought I'd post some Easter cards too.

This is the inside of the card I made for a friend who moved home in Nov 2011. The back of the new address has a magnetic strip that can be stuck to the fridge. 

 This is the front of the 'Just Moved' card.

 I made these thank you cards for David and Donnamarie when they had their twin girls in Feb 2011. In fact I just attended the twins' first birthday party last weekend. How time flies?!
I can't remember what I got them but this is the gift that I wrapped for David and Donnamarie's twin girls, Holly and Maci. 

 Thank you cards for Aiden's birthday.

 First Holy Communion card for Leigh...a wee while ago.

That's all for now. Time to retire.

Button card and pics of my boys

This card was made with a border button die which I received for my birthday way back in Oct. I made this card for Fiona's birthday in Dec. I love the colours on this card. I have made many cards over the months but have not taken the time to take pics of them.

Now for a few pics of my adorable boys....they do request to be dressed alike. Not sure how long that will last but so long as keeps them happy, I'll go along with it. These pics were professionally taken in Dec 2011.

Well that's all for now.
