Morning peeps, have to say I am expecting this morning to be a bit stressful as my son who loves the work at school but hates being bullied and being in his wheelchair all day , has to return after his Exam leave for another 4 weeks before breaking up for summer a week earlier than the rest of the school. He has already been saying for the past 3 days he is dreading it and we agreed he should practice getting up early, mum did son didn't, and yesterday was a struggle for 8:30 when he leaves for school at 8 am. Hopefully I am stressing about nothing and this morning will run like clockwork and have no stress.

Enough of my moaning sorry all not what you want to read especially so early in a morning, well early for me at 5:40am.
Quick update- worry about nothing once my son was up and the rain stopped and the sun tried to shine no stress thank goodness.

My card I share this morning with you I finished last night , another commission for a son who is into golf though apparently doesn't get to play that often, he has quite a lot of freckles so hopefully my colouring will do him justice, not tried freckles before.

I kept the card simple and used this fab Kenny K image which I coloured with my promarkers as usual. The golf ball is just a circle of copy paper which I used my fiskars shapeboss to add dimples to and the flag again is just copy paper coloured with Promarker and peel-offs added.The backing paper is from the boys to men CD I was lucky enough to win from Ooh La La a few weeks ago.
