A relaxing day

Hello there! Good to see you all again! I am finally back home again after spending about ten days at the Swedish West coast, or as it might be referred to; the rain coast. God! So much rain! But it was good to get away from home for such long time, almost two weeks. I have not been away for that long since I spent three weeks in Turkey 1997 or something like that. LoL It's a bit different being away this long with kids that's for sure.

Now we have unpacked all laundry and the rest of the bags are empty. Tomorrow starts a new chapter in W*s life. He will soon start school and is a bit nervous about it. Just like I am to be honest, I'm doing my best not to show him. It will be fine while we get into the routines again.


Now for my card. It's mid week and it's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Shelter. This week we have Going round and round as our theme, so  please do come and join us.

I have use the cute little chap from the "happy times" set. This time it was time for the little man resting and that is just what I would like to do today. He is coloured with copics! Yes I know, a chocking experience for us all, but I do have those as well and since my Letraset family is a bit too wet to colour with for my printer at this time, these markers came to my rescue. Never wrong to have a spare filling in for you. The designer papers are from Echo Park's Strips, and dots and lines or what ever they are called. But I do love them. They are bright and cheerful and very clean in their design. I have to get a few more of those pads that's for sure. :) Some die cutting clouds and a flower with a button is my only decoration together with a sentiment saying "just dropping by" in Swedish. Oh, and a little birdie found it's way on the card too, couldn't help myself. :)


As always we have our gift certificate up for grabs worth $20 if you play with a TPS image. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice. Hope to see you around! :)

Smiles,
Marie
