Hello again, more rain today! I was babysitting the two youngest grandchildren and the only thing we did was to pop up to the shops for milk and something for lunch. They both were really good and Isaac had a big sleep after lunch. Papa came home before Lisel came to pick them up so he spent some time reading and playing with them and partially fed Isaac some food. He decided he wasn't too interested because they were both sitting down on the floor. I remedied that by putting him in the high chair and he then ate the rest up no problems.
We had roast pork for tea and I invited our youngest daughter and boyfriend over to eat with us. Our eldest daughter and her fiancee popped in as well, I offered to feed them, but they bought pizza instead as George didn't want the pork. We got halfway through our meals and our youngest son came home. I wasn't expecting him home as he had gone to some car race? where he was part of the service crew for a friend who had a car entered.  I thought he was going to be quite late so hadn't saved him any tea. I decided I had eaten enough so share my roast potato and there was still meat and gravy left but no vegies. I also gave up my piece of crackle too!!! A favourite food item in this family, LOL. there is usually a bit of mucking about trying to see who can pinch a bit before it actually gets to be shared out on the dinner plates.
Hubby has to work tomorrow and starts at 6 a.m. from the work yard, so he has already gone to bed and also Laurie is doing more servicing and is getting picked up early too. So they both hit the sack a bit earlier tonight.
I'm going very shortly, just want to share this card with you.
It's one I made a little while ago but hadn't posted yet. I haven't decorated the inside as yet.
Here it is,

Burgundy and Blue cardstock from stash
Cream cardstock from stash - stamped with a clock stamp (no brand) and then I pricked this pattern and stitched it with a dark browny/red thread.
The clock images and the word time are images from an assorted pack of images that I picked up a couple of years ago in one of the cheap variety shops.
I matted them onto some of the blue card
I distressed the edges of the cream and blue card.

I hope you find it interesting,

I am entering this into the following challenges:
