    Forgot to say earlier that I was a very proud mummy yesterday. We went to see Ice Age 3 and it was the first time DS2 had been to the cinema. Both boys were brilliantly behaved and we all had a thoroughly great time. We saw it in 3D so had funky glasses to wear. I so wish I had taken a photo of the two of them sitting, eating their popcorn in Roy Orbison-esque glasses :D

    Thank-you for the link Rainmac. I have downloaded the images and have made a note to check for new freebies on a friday, the trouble is these weeks fly past and I tend to forget to look and miss them :) Sounds like your boys did you proud at the cinema, and they had fun with the 3D glasses. Its a long time for little ones to sit still, I think they deserve a Gold Star.

    Melissa Ilove all your new cards they are absoloutely perfect :) Your colour combinations really are spot on!!

    Melissa - your cards are fantastic - just show what a long way I have to go!

    Rainmac & flourgirl - thanks for the freebie links.

    Well done to your sons at the cinema rainmac - it's a tribute to you that they know how to behave properly.

    Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or offer advice? - I've got some images in JPEG format and I'm trying to colour them with 'paint' on the pc but they aren't working properly - not completely filling in between the lines IYSWIM? Think I may have to get some pens & learn to colour in by hand. Oh Dear......

    Here's my entry for the embossed thank you challenge..... The embossing is the flowers on the rt hand side - I embossed the wrong way up so then decided to colour it in as I had the lines to follow.....

    Here's another of my wonky cards - the wordle bit fell off the first time I put it on so I rushed to stick it on with better tape and in true Marg style it slipped as I pressed it firmly on! It was too late to do another so I sent it anyway.

    Have I shown you this one before? It was for my great nephew. I did it all on the PC apart from the gold stars & line. I've got a pictures of most of the 'Thomas' vehicles if anyone ever needs images let me know.
