Back in action

 I'm feeling extremely nervous and anxious...not good for grey hairs! Ryan is playing in his first First Team game since his injury last August as I type this. I am on tender hooks crossing all my fingers and toes that he comes through unscathed. At the moment Kilmarnock are beating Hibs 1-0 and judging by the commentary on tv they seem to be doing well. I'm banned from going to his games as he always seems to get injured when I'm there :-( Hubby, Nicole, Ben, Steven and Vanessa are all there cheering him on. At half time Nic text to say he was doing well and looked strong. I won't be able to relax until I see him when he gets home and check for bumps and bruises lol. 

For some reason I have to use Chrome to post now instead of Internet Explorer...seems IE is not longer supported by Blogger...not sure why that is??? Seems something is always changing with Blogger these days. Anyone else come across this? As long as I can publish a post I don't care who is supporting me lol.

In between wedding favours and everything else I managed to make a baby card for my friend's new grandson. My friend has now had 4 weddings and 3 grandchildren in 4 years!!! Sadie and I went to our favourite store Mama's & Papa's to buy a present for the new arrival and we were in there for about an hour lol. Don't tell Nicole and Ben but I was planning their nursery!!!!! I cannot wait to add 'Grandma' to my list of titles lol. 

I decided to rest Sleeping Baby Baby and play with Splash Time Baby Baby ...this is what I came up with...

I used Lasting Impressions pp...only 395 sheets left lol. When I was at Craft World last week I picked up a new set of Nesties I'd been uhming and awing over for ages. I coloured the image with my Copics adding Glossing Accents for the water and a bit of Glamour Dust to the bubbles.

I used one of the new felt colours for the flowers...gorgeous Sky.

I think the twisted easel is one of my favourite style of cards at the moment.

I'd like to enter the following challenges please:

Hiding In My Craft Room - Homemade flowers
Mark's Finest Papers - Stitching
Here Come The Boys - Tiddly Peeps
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
PanPastel UK Challenge - Add a Flower

I'm in a bit of a rush to beat the rain....dashing off to take Rocky and Ruby to CB for a good walk. This morning when we were there we had to cut our walk short as there were 5 horses and a scooter there and if Rocky had caught sight of them it would have been a nightmare!!

I'll let you know how Ryan got on. 

Thanks for stopping by today.

Catch ya later x
