Crazy Few Weeks!

It has been a crazy few weeks here and I feel like I have constantly been chasing my tail since we came back from our holiday so not much blogging has been done for a while! 

Hubby had Father's Day and his birthday within a few short days of each other, last weekend we had a family BBQ to celebrate both occassions which was fantastic, I love the in-laws and as my sister-in-laws get partners or have babies etc our family meetings grow and grow!  This was the card that I made for hubby's birthday from myself.

I was browsing through the Two Peas Digital Section and found this kit which was under Fonts but was full of swirls and patterns like the one above so I download that and added some manly bling and printed onto linen cardstock. The base part of the card was printed with a wash from Pink Petticoat and I added ribbon too.

Although it was his birthday, I was thoroughly spoilt when Hubby came home with a new i-pad for me!  I had bought him one for his birthday and he liked it so much he bought one for me too! We had a lovely dinner out as a family and then spent some time relaxing in the garden and in our little pool.

I have loads of card orders at the moment and am starting to panic as my youngest only has a couple of weeks left at school before he breaks up for summer and I am helping out on a school trip for one of those days. I made this card for my hairdresser to give to her Nephew on his 18th. She wanted the age on the card and happy birthday so I came up with this.

This is another download from 2 Peas and the kit is here. I printed this onto linen cardstock and added a bit of bling to jazz it up. Happy Birthday was printed from the computer.

Sorry the photo is a bit blurry, it was taken just before I had to rush it round to her! 

Finally yesterday was my dear friend's son's Bar Mitzvah. The ceremony was lovely and her son read a long passage from the Torah. He did brilliantl! Its amazing that he has learnt to read and speak a whole new language for this ceremony and he didn't just read, he chanted the words. I have never been to a Bar Mitzvah before and had no idea how much work was involved, I admire him for all his hard work which is alot for a 13 year old, who now in the eyes of his religion, is considered a man. Well Done J!

I copied some text from the Torah onto linen card stock and printed a border around it. I then made the star with four different colours of cotton and twisted them and sewed them onto the card. I matted this onto some silver and red cardstock and then placed it all onto some linen card. The sentiment was made on the computer.

Tonight we are going to his party at a bar and restuarant on the beach, the weather is gorgeous, there is entertainment for the kids we are all going to have a fab time, I can't wait!

I hope that you are all having a great weekend too!
