One today!

|Hi all, I am getting such withdrawls from not having time to craft or visit blogland, tryingto keep my son at his studies. He openly admits I don't have to do much but if I'm not there he will get distracted and wander onto face book or games instead of sticking to his work, so what else can I do? he's worked really well today and finished all we set out to do , so while he's settled on the PS3 for 1/2 an hour I had chance to make a quick card mum asked me for for one of her friends grandson's.

I hadf the idea of having a floating ballon and I think it turned out ok, the balloon has '1 today' written on it and the easel card lends itself really well, well I thought so hope my mum likes it. I thought as its for a little one it didn't want to be too fancy just clean easy to see images that he might beable to recognise.

I used a forever frinds stamp and cut the balloon out freehand and extended the string. The acetate i have to admit is from the lid of a box of christmas crackers, waste not want not, and I thought the little flower brads were just so cute, but I've made sure theyre stuck down well... safety first.

Over at magical crafts fortnightly challenge they want projects for children so I will enter my little friend. I really will have to find time to find some more challenges, well next weeks half term maybe I'll get some more time then who knows.
