Whiff of the Weekend

The bank holiday weekend just gone that is.

Here's a card I made yesterday with my bit of spare bank holiday crafting time.
I've water coloured the WOJ image and given it a bit of sparkle with some glitter on the wings.
Couldn't resist the little tag in the corner from Craft Obsessions. They are blank unlike others I have seen so very versatile and a strip of 12 was 95p. The chipboard buttons are Crate Paper and were left over from one of my Creative Moments kits.
Challenges for this one :
Whiff of Joy #73 - 1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 patterned papers (My Minds Eye in this case).

Moving Along With The Times #40 - sketch plus pink, brown and ribbon.

Daring Card Makers - Diamonds (the birthstone for April).

Sir Stampalot - April challenge 'Fantasy'.

Now on to pictures from the weekend. Lots as I couldn't choose which to share.

The 2 older children stayed over night at their grandparents on Saturday and then we went out to meet them on Sunday. Having consumed a lot of curry and wine on the Saturday evening I needed some fresh air and we arranged to meet SMO's Godchildren at the cricket pitch.

Branston being swiftly removed from a very tall slide
Small-N-Grubby caught in the act!
At the bottom of the slide - great view across the pitch, the goal posts should be coming down soon
Branston cheers up about the slide once he gets a turn on the very squeaky swing
The adventure park was still shut for the winter but it was a lovely sunny afternoon and so that didn't really matter.

On Monday the Dinky Diva unexpectedly got an invite to a friends house so we took the boys to the nearby play area with bikes, scooters, cricket set etc.

Here's Branston on his trike
And Small-N-Grubby posing
I think I might have to replace the photos on my sidebar with some of these as you can see how outdated they are.
