Birthday Reminder

Howdy doody! How is your summer going so far?? Summer seemed to arrive in Scotland on Sunday with beautiful WARM weather, especially yesterday where it registered 27C in my cars outside thermometer!!! Now that's 2 days in a row...not a record but still good going. I've heard it's supposed to be like this for TWO weeks but I will believe it when I see it lol.

I never managed to make a card using one of the new images as it was a bit manic before my mom left last week then I seemed to hit a wall and couldn't do anything! I think the last 8 weeks had finally caught up with me and all I wanted to do was sleep. I'm slowly coming to and I did make a card yesterday but it was for a magazine feature which HAD to get done otherwise I would be in BIG trouble lol. I will show it to you when I get the green light though :-D

I do have a lot of cards I've made that I hadn't blogged and luckily this one fit the challenge....

I've used comfy Billie, paper piecing the chair and cushion

I added pink nailheads for the thingamajigs in the chair

I used my i top for the center of the flower

I jazzed this picture of Coen with my Frametastic App on my phone...think this has to be one of my favourite pictures of him. He was a VERY clever boy  Friday night....he slept from 11pm to 6:30am not to be repeated since lol

I finally got a picture of the 4 generations on the day before my mom left

Look who came home on Sunday....Uncle Steven!!

Poor Nic was absolutely shattered but insisted on coming to the airport with me to pick Steven up. 

It's brilliant having my baby home and with the gorgeous weather it's just like being in Dubai...well almost lol.

I'll make another card from the new release and post it later in the week. After the card I made yesterday dare I say I might have my mojo back!!

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Love it all, i.e. both the pictures and the card. Love the paper-pieced chair and those sweet hearts. I, too, am relieved that I managed to create a new card at long last. Too much work and social 'obligations'in the weekends. Sadly, our Dutch frinds will be leaving again tomorrrow, but we'll proably drop by tonight for a last get together.
