Sunday 15 February 2015 ya...

Good evening! Hope you've had an enjoyable weekend, it's eerily quiet in my house at the moment, the granddaughters have gone home! It's funny how two such small people can fill a house ...with laughter, giggles, fun.... toys,crisp crumbs, cut up paper, discarded clothing (don't ask!) cake mix (yuck). We did have a fun weekend though, went to see the Paddington movie yesterday, followed by a trip to the shops (expensive) a visit to the library (a small oasis of peace after this as they both had their noses buried in the books they'd chosen), out to dinner, back home for bathtime! I let them sit up to watch a kids movie (v. boring) on tv. Thought they might nod off...they didn't...I did....bedtime stories, goodnight hugs! They were up bright and early this morning. Lovely. Just how I like to start Sunday. Not. We made pancakes for breakfast. They got out every toy in the house. We made cupcakes. Lots of them. They drew, coloured and cut out (again) Olivia made a notebook, Ruby cut up a zillion bits of paper.....lunch, then Mummy and Daddy arrived to collect them. I had a lie down in a darkened room.... not really shovelled up the mess, then made  this quick card! The fabulous Whipper Snapper piggy stamp is a really old one I've had for ages... it always makes me smile. The sentiment stamp is Paper Smooches and the border is hand doodled.
 All of a sudden I'm inexplicably tired so think I'll go put my feet up and enjoy a nice (large) glass of wine!
Thanks for visiting

Well you've just reminded what I will be doing next Saturday! We do have fun don't we Chris..on a good side they go home, but such a joy to have them..I for one was so busy when ours were small that sometimes time wasn't there to do all the nice things we should..
LOve your kissing pigs. A Brilliant CAS card.

What a weekend you've had! So lovely, though, that you get to have such quality time with your granddaughters. Neither you nor they will ever forget these days. Love your card with its fabby image. Enjoy your well-earned glass of wine - I've got one on the go too... can't decide whether to try the Raj Saga on C4 or the JK Rowling thing on the BBC, but I expect I'll nod off whichever one I choose! Hugs xx

Love ya too! Gorgeous card and image, can see why it is a favourite.
Mm make the most of it as our eldest, nearly 10 is getting a bit out of sleeping over with us, youngest is still up for it though.
Like the old saying, it's lovely to have them but lovely when they go home.

LOL! Your visits sound like ours used to, and I would be just as exhausted afterward! Love those grandgirls, and love when they go home again. Ours are pre-teens now, though, so much less trouble. So far...
Your card is so cute--love those fun piggies! Great CAS design, and I love the coloring, too! :^)
Wine sounds heavenly right now...and will again tomorrow, and tomorrow, and so on, and so on, and ...
Hope you are having a great week! :^)
