Buttons N Bows N this N that!

Aternoon all!!  How was your weekend?  I've had a busy week with Ethan's first week at proper school, well he only did 2 hours a day last week, he's doing 3 this week then next week he's in full time yippeeee!  I miss him of course *ahem* lol!  Little Miss Moo also goes to pre-school, shes been going 2 sessions a week privately since January but now we can get vouchers she's in a lot more!  So next week you might actually see me a bit more (inbetween the studying/applying for jobs!)
Here's my handsome lad going into school - ahhhhh!

Over the weekend I went out with OH on the bikes, have not ridden wth him before as I only passed my CBT end of July then just did a couple of short trips, my bike, Stanley, needed a repair then it was holiday so this was our first chance really!  We did 90 miles around Cheshire yesterday, had great fun!  I do prefer the country lanes though as several cars were just completely ignorant, I'm not on a pushbike ya know!  This is Stanley posing next to The Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank :)

And my card of course!  I'm a bit late (as usual!) posting this, I'll get more organised once the routine is set next week!
The challenge until wednesday at Crafts & Me is Buttons & Bows.  For this I used one of the newer digis called Porcini, isnt she so pretty!  I think this one is a team favourite :)  I've coloured with promarkers feather blending the pink and the yellow together and added sparkle on the wings with glamour dust.  The ribbon has hearts on and I used teeny buttons

I love faeries!! If you can ever come up with a red-haired, blue-eyed fey dancing in the trees(black & white trees) I would love to know of it. Or if you have a thing of that sort..?
I hope I win those pens. *fingers crossed*
