Birthdays and Babies!

Hi all!  I hope that the new year has got off to a good start for you! Mine has been hectic, my little boy slipped in the snow a few weeks ago and as I pulled him up I pulled some muscles in my neck which was really painful for a week or so, its mostly better although something keeps clicking when I move a certain way and that's a bit disconcerting!

It was my eldest son Tom's 12th birthday last week. Of course I asked him what kind of card he would like and to my suprise he drew me a layout, told me what kind of picture he wanted, what he wanted it to say and also what embelishments he wanted! I of course was dumb struck and as he walked away he said 'I hope that its going to be good because I want to show all my friends!

He spent a lovely day at the cinema with 6 mates and then we all went to Pizza Express for dinner and he was so pleased with his card that he made a video of it on his new phone. I am not going to post it here because it was about a game that he plays on the x-box and not very pretty, but he loved it and thats what counts!

I have no idea what was going on 9 and a bit months ago but I have had such alot of baby cards to make at the start of this year. Four in the last couple of weeks!  The upside is you get to have a little cuddle and then give them back! No, I am definately not feeling broody!

This card was for my neighbour who had a little boy.

Lots of friends at school have had babies too so I made some cards to give to them.

And another!

The stamp is from Dimension Forth and I inked round the edges of the image and added some bling and glamour dust to the paws and ears. The background on the card is from Pink Petticoat and the sentiment was typed on the computer.

The paper in this card was from a paperpack from Dovercraft called Baby. I added some gingham ribbon and a little charm from my stash.

Yesterday my friend Linzi and I went to our first crop at Sugar and Spice Crafts in Barleylands craft village. We were so excited and spent the whole day making scrapbook pages, buying crafting goodies and chatting to some lovely and very talented ladies, it was bliss and we are keen to go again soon.

However I am still a card maker at heart and will be posting soon with some more cards that I have been busy making.

Have a wonderful week, I am off to see what you have all been upto!
