Better late than never

Hi Folks....a bit late in posting today.....Brodie came to spend the day with Grandma - 4 days of teacher in service training this week....what a nightmare that must be for all you working Mums.....so we decided to have a bit of a crafting morning......made some Easter Baskets with chocolate chicks from M&S......and yes there were a few eaten during the process.....




and then Brodie suggested we make a card for Megan...so I gave him some stickers and alphabets and this is what he came up with......definitely a chip off the old block


less is more as they say.......

and the inside



well it's time for lunch.....so catch up with you all tomorrow when "The Budster" will be announcing his Stamp Give-Away winner and will have some more goodies up for grabs.
Hugs from Brodie & Grandma
xxxxxxxx
Edited to add: get your hankies out girls......after the card was finished and we were tidying everything away back in the cubbyhole.....Brodie said " Grandma...can I put something else inside the card?".......and he added "You are the best present we have ever had"......I must confess that my bottom lip was trembling and I felt my eyes welling up.....out of the mouths of babes......so sweet.

Looks like Brodie had fun and I think tiny little Megan will love her card. No doubt my crafting goodies will be getting a good rumage through with the kids at home this week.
Have a great week
Happy crafting

Great fun!! You have inspired me to get my kiddos crafting this afternoon! Do you think I will be sane after doing it with 3???
Enjoy the rest of your day!

What fun. I remember those days with my 2 girls before they grew up and became teens and didn't want to do this anymore. Hopefully it will come back to them and we can do scrapping together as they become young women. Enjoy your day......kh

Brodie looks like he has had lots of fun today. The card he has made for Megan is brilliant.
I have been crafting with my son this morning and we had lots of fun too.

Brodie's card is fab! Good job I wasn't there when he said that - would have been overtime for the Kleenex factory.

How many pink things have you bought so far?
