I just can't do as much to write about on those days! lol.
Here's the close up detail:
I didn't half hurt me thumb punching out all those numbers too!
For the calendar itself I focussed on Easter and used the fun chicken themed set of stamps that I got from the NEC recently.
I thought I'll just paper pierce some of them and colour the rest. But when I did that, the coloured ones didn't look 'complete' so I ended up paper piercing everything! Tails, wings, flowers, hen house... it took forever! Overall I'm happy with the result and I'll just have to gently gloss over my little mistake....

Moving on and LETS GO FLY A KITE ...and let's not make it normal sized, let's make it BIG! Well, that is what my hubby and his friend did yesterday with the boys.
Here they are making it:
The 'real' boys (in the background) made the tail out of coloured paper into leaf shapes that were stapled on to the string:
See? Told you it was BIG!:
..and YES, it flew:
(Think it helped that my hubby is an engineer!)
Finally today, I hope those of you in the UK enjoyed Mother's Day. I was lucky enough to get breakfast in bed and a fabulous meal made for me in the evening. I also received two lovely handmade cards and a book on acrylic painting. We went to the park briefly today and here I am (at aged 48) after having climbed this tree with my boys!:
Have a good week. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments,
