Home alone...

Poor little Maja is home from school with a tummy ache today... She had a sore tummy yesterday as well, but not as bad as today. At least we tried going to school, but unfortunately I had to take her home just after the first lesson... hopefully she'll feel better soon.

Hubby and I were home "alone" for the first time since we had children this weekend. No children! What to do first... lol... We should have been in a 90th birthday in Switzerland this weekend though... but we couldn't get anyone to look after the girls from thursday to friday evening when my parents arrived, so we had to stay at home. My parents arrived late friday evening, and after breakfast on Saturday, they took the girls with them on an overnight trip in their camper van. It was so much fun going on a "date" with my hubby on Saturday night... a film and then restaurant! Great!

I also managed to make a card this weekend... no children at home, and hubby in the garage "working" on his bike gave me some ME-time! Yay!
Image is Teen Fairy Mia by Mo Manning, coloured with Promarkers. I have used a flower stamp and a text stamp on the designer papers to tone them down a bit.... and also some paper tape. I've added a doily and some flowers, and the image is mounted on 3D dots Stickles on the wings.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
2 Sisters Challenge - #91 - Make it girlie.
Crafty Calender - Things with wings.
The Corrosive Challenge - #149 - Flowers and doilies and bling.
Paper Sundaes - #120 - Things with wings.

DETTE ble veldig fi t, Tonje! Elsker det fine motivet og du både fargelegger og pynter så fint.
Deilig med alene tid dag. JEg kjenner at jeg og mannen trenger det veldig nå - for hverdagen har tatt oss for mye. Det er liksom litt mas fra man står opp til man legger seg. Mas om å få opp minsten om morgenen, mas om hva han skal spise og ikke spise, mas om lekser og tv-tid og pc-stid og legge tid! Sånn er livet"
