Stippled Blossoms

Hello Blog friends followers plus anyone who pressed the wrong button and landed here.  Hope you stayed to have a look, liked what you saw and will call again soon.
I did not get any Crafting done over the weekend the boys were here ... mostly Thomas.  Robert was so involved in Football over the weekend, to be honest its every night as well.  Thomas plays two evenings in the week but does not do much over the weekend.  He plays for fun during the week with older boys while Robert is with younger ones, his is real serious stuff!!!   It is not Thomas`s sport of choice, he prefers Basketball, swimming or Skiing.  The difficulty is fitting it all in, but they seem to manage.
Mum a Midwife was working all weekend so Granny & Grandpa to the rescue.  Its full on, non stop but great fun, makes you sleep well at night that`s for sure. 
Thomas was Skiing with the school Wednesday, Thursday, Friday.  They missed Monday, Tuesday because of the bad weather.  They have lost those two days and will have to wait till the end of February beginning of March to find slots for them. 
I was doing a few things while I was not Blogging.  Not a lot of Crafting just things in general, I really MUST get myself back into "playing".   I have bought a few Crafty Things and they are still unopened.  I did open the outer packaging to see what I had actually bought.  Other than that they have just been put away.  Oh! what fun I will have opening them up to play with.  
Till then here is a card I "had" to make.  The old lady in the village I make cards for phoned recently to ask if I was "open" for business.  For her I said yes, unfortunately it was a Sympathy Card she needed.  
Here it is:-

I have said I am not a Stamper but I do LOVE using this set of stamps.
StampinUp Stippled Blossom Stamp Set (Now Retired)  These are brilliant stamps giving a fantastic effect.  You don`t have to be precise with them they just work!!!  I really do not know why they stopped making them.
Phill Martin sentiment stamp.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for stopping to look and leave a comment I really appreciate it
Till next time
