Just in case you thought...

...I'd left the country again I've not lol! Manilla was enough for the time being...not sure I'd go back ... it was so stressful lol.

Happy New Year to you all...I know we're almost halfway through January but I haven't wished you properly. I hope you all had a good Christmas...ours was quiet...just the 5 of us and bump (Ben was up North wish his family). Nic moved home for a couple of days on Christmas eve after work. She had her 2nd scan that morning and our little grandbaby has grown quite a bit....

Nicole is 23 weeks today...over half way woop woop!!! I'm still so excited as you can tell lol. We have a big year ahead of us so I will have to save some of the excitement for my dad's 80th next month, the birth of our grandbaby in May, our 30th wedding anniversary (now that's a real achievement these days but we're not there yet lol) and my 30th 50th!!!! Can we all say holy cow lol!!!!!!

I didn't think I had anything crafty to share with you but I came across Sadie's birthday card from December and before you think I was late I can assure you I was not lol. 

I used Tulip Watering Can from the Floral Delight Too range of digi stamps and colored it with my Copics.

I got a fabulicious Stampin Up! embossing folder for my birthday...I just love the texture which is perfect for Sadie as she's registered blind.

I've used the most gorgeously soft felt in Monty Mushroom and Blush Pink for the flower and a wooden flower button I found in my stash.

A bit of Glamour Dust on the flowers adds sparkle

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes

Although I seem to have hit a brick wall crafting wise (I've only made 2 cards this year) I've not been sitting around doing nothing. I have been extremely busy and will have some exciting news to share with you VERY soon!!!

Hope you all have a great week and get plenty of crafting done.

Catch ya later x
