Birthday Reminder #3

I finally got a card made...make that 2 cards....yayyyy me!!! I thought once my mom left I'd be making cards left right and center but a small but perfectly formed little boy has been occupying all my time lol. Coen went on his holidays on Friday and I'm missing him terribly but on the plus side I am getting things done :-D He'll be back this Friday but in the meantime I'm going to try and get as many cards made as I can :-D

I made another card using Billie Bunting but this time for a girl. Let me know what you thunk... 

I've made another aperture card but this time the image is on the front and not the inside. I cut a square piece of pink Bazzill card stock, cut a circle aperture then ran it through my eboss machine with Embossalicious Chevrons embossing folder. I then stitched around the circle and the outside edges. 

I printed Billie Bunting digi image on white cs and colored it with my Copics adding Glossy Accents to the 7 and heart and dusting with glitter. 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Stamp Society - Use Ribbon and Buttons
Whoopsi Daisy Challenge - Use your markers
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes
Sweet Stamps Blog - Anything Goes

We have had the most beautiful weather here in Scotland. Last week Nicole, Coen and I went to the park and had a picnic, strolled in the sunshine and treated ourselves to an 99! Afterwards we went to Sainsbury's to see if we could get Coen a few more outfits for his holiday. Nic and I picked out few things to try on ourselves and after a little fashion show I ended up buying Coen a couple of CUTE pairs of shorts and t-shirts :-D We got a few things for dinner then headed to the car. Nic asked for the car keys when I remembered they'd fallen out of my pocket in the changing room so I headed up to get them....they weren't there so I went to the cash desk to see if they had been handed in...nope. The girl called downstairs to Customer Service but nobody handed them in their either! Well we waited, and waited and WAITED (2 hours in total from when we arrived!) but they weren't handed in. The security guard looked back through the CCTV but couldn't see anyone of significance going into the changing rooms after us. I had to phone hubby to bring my spare set of keys and while we waited outside we made this video....

I can't tell you the number of times I have watched this lol. Anywho, to this day my car keys haven't been handed in. I don't know where they went or why anyone would want to keep could have been the Mulberry black leather heart key ring I got for my birthday from one of my best friends a few years ago :-( I'm hoping that someone with as bad a memory as my own put them in their pocket to hand in after they finished their shopping and forgot. The silver lining is this video...we wouldn't have captured it if I hadn't have lost my keys :-D

That's it from me today. I hope you have a great day and the sun is still shining wherever you are :-D

Catch ya later x
