Literacy Week,

Its literacy week at the children's school today, it includes a couple of authors coming in to talk to the children a book swap and today they could dress up as characters from books so we had, The Cat in the Hat

and the witch from Room on the Broom

I have finally managed to make some cards, sometimes life just gets in the way of crafting, 

I have made this on for Andy's Dad he loves aeroplanes, especially older ones. It was made using a die-cut decoupage aeroplane, some hand made paper embossed dots and wiped over with some green ink, and a piece of handmade paper for the background, the sentiment was done using a oval punch and two sentiments from the its a man's world stamp set.

This one has been made using Paper from a magazine this month, a couple of die-cut butterflies that came with a embellishment pack I got at christmas, a gorguss girl and 2 punched circles from the nesting punches I have, I just added some ribbon and bling  from my stash to finish it off, 
thanks for popping by Jo x
