Magical Flute

Hi everyone. I hope you're all having a great week so far.

Today's card is using a Lili of the Valley image called Magical Flute. I love these new mice stamps as I have all their old ones showing lots of mice baking and blowing up balloons etc. which are some of my favourite stamps. Here's my card.....

and a close up of the stamp...

Chris, my son on holiday with his fiancée Lexi, has become a bit of a celebrity in Thailand as you can see....

Random people asked to take photos with him while he and Lexi were walking round different places. This is just a few of them Lexi caught with her camera. In the bottom photo one of the girls asked him for a photo with her then the rest of her group suddenly appeared from nowhere to join in. It's a good job Chris is a friendly laidback guy and just goes with the flow. When he returns home he will start a further 6 years training to be a Psychiatrist which he should be good at with his patience.

Tonight I'm going to see the band Elbow with hubby, Stuart, and my other son, Kieran. This is the first time I've seen a band live so it should be a great experience. 

Well that's all for now. I'll be back again this week with the candy giveaway. See you soon.
