Midway reminder #3

Well I've been busy...chasing my tail as always. My SIL's mom passed away last Sunday and the funeral was on Friday. Hubby, Nicole, Coen and I drove to Harrogate for the funeral leaving the house at 7:30 am and hubby and I arrived back home at 10:30 pm!! Ben and Nic were driving down to Manchester anyway to meet the newest member of the family....Ben's sister's new baby boy he picked them up on the way and had a big family reunion. That's 3 grandson's (and two wedding's for Ben's parents in less than 2 years...a hat trick!!!

I made this card yesterday for my SIL's b'day on Saturday....

I've used a new digi called Pile of Presents. I've printed it on a larger piece of card stock...I'm really liking this style of card so be prepared to see a lot more of them :-D I cut out the flag sentiment tag using a Die-namics die then ran the tag through the printer on a piece of copy paper to add the sentiment. I tied a piece of Baker's Twine around the top and stitched it to the card front. A bit of glitter and stitching around the edge and card was done!

We didn't see Coen for 3 days and when we did yesterday I couldn't get over the change in him... I'm sure he grew 2" and he was holding his head up with little wobble. 

Are you ready for your Coen fix? Here you go....

No wonder his head didn't bobble...he's no neck lololol!!!

He is getting really active...his arms and legs were going like crazy :-D

I don't know how we got away with this picture. Nic isn't too happy when Rocky and Ruby go near Coen...she says they drool all over him. I do too but don't get into trouble rofl. Anywho, Rocky was busy chewing on a tennis ball and Ruby took her place beside Coen and edged her way closer until she was able to reach out and 'pat' him! 

Sadie has booked us another holiday...we're off to Kos on Thursday. I'm looking forward to it and I'm not. I never did get to sit out when we had the fantastic weather last month so it will be nice to sit and do nothing but soak up the sun and read a book. On the other hand I don't want to miss out on Coen...look how much he changed in the few days we didn't see him. He'll be walking by the time we get back from Kos ;-D

I've got a lot to do before I list is I'm going to love you and leave you. Not sure if I'll have another reminder for next week but I'll do my best. If not it's going to be a card I've already made.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great Tuesday!

Catch ya later x

Super duper card, love the stitching around the sentiment.

As for the little man, Aw! he is growing too quickly, I thought at least 3 inches since I saw him last :)
