Yes there are many in the Keating household let me tell you.  I'm sure all mums will feel the same, we're not just mums, we are caterers, waitresses, laundry service, ironing service, taxi drivers, butlers, entertainers, diplomats, spin doctors, teachers, nurses, carers, bank of England and the list goes on. How on earth do we mange to fit our normal jobs in there never mind hobbies!

Speaking of which down to today's card.  I got the idea from a fellow demonstrator who made a similar design as a swap.

Yes sorry about the clip of my iron in the background lol,  I've used the Paisley Petals stamp and papers to make this card, I've stamped in Elegant Eggplant onto Elegant eggplant card, I then added that lovely scalloped dotted ribbon and made a flower using the Fancy Flower punch, I know I've been using this punch a lot but I just love the flowers you can make with it.  I've inked the edges of the flower in Elegant Eggplant and added a rhinestone as a bit of bling in the middle.

I'll be entering this into the Simply Stampin Challenge Sketch challenge.  And now it's time to go back to being a mum, helping Scotty Too Hotty complete his homework on how teeth work, it involves the eating of a toffee and an apple so I have courageously volunteered in the name of education.;-)
