This blog was started mainly for my crafting, however I also find myself writing about my family life too and in particular about my son Josh. Josh is just Josh to us and we're used to his quirky behaviour. As I don't want to have to mention Josh's autism every time I post about him, I thought I'd mention it here. Hopefully you will bear this in mind as you read and it may give you a little insight into the wonderful world of the autisic child in a very gentle way!

Happy 60th Birthday Mum!
I had two ideas for cards for my Mum. One was a nice pretty one and the other was poking fun at her age - like you do when it's a 60th! As a couldn't decide which to make I ended up making both and I sent her this cheeky one from me and Peej sent her the nice pretty one from him.
I just love this stamp. It's called "Maude" and I have various sentiment stamps that I use with it. The sentiment I've used this time which says "I'll rise... but I refuse to shine" is a new addition to my collection and it's the first time I've used it. I do think it works great with this stamp though. This is the inside of the card. Just in case you can't read the inside because it's too small I've taken a close up for you. There is a little story behind these entitlements and this is...
...as my Gran has got older these seem to be entitlements she has given to herself and it drives my mum nuts. If any of you know the character of "Nan" that Catherine Tate does, well "Nan" is just like my Gran except my Gran doesn't use the "F" word and I don't think I've ever heard my Gran laugh! My mum and I often joke about the way my Gran is and my mum usually ends the conversation by saying "Don't ever let me get like that will you Fe?!"
I think she'll find it funny that now she's turned 60 I've given her permission to officially turn into Gran!! :-)Stamps: Art Impressions ~ Stamps Away Coloured With: Twinkling H2Os
