Happy Times

Unusual for me but I've been up since the crack of dawn this morning. The day has finally dawned and it's wave off time to my Son, on his travels again back to Australia. Silly old me a bit sad today so think I need a pick me up lol, now I wonder what mischief I could get up to. Any suggestions? Least the Suns joining us today, looks like it's going to be a Summers day for a change!
My card today was made for my Son, always make something when he goes off. Seen this image on KennyK's and thought it was perfect for him. Was going to make a bookmark as he is an avid reader but he fancied a Kindle so I bought him that as an early Christmas present. So made a wall hanging instead, not sure it will land on the wall but I know he will keep it safe.
