Oh my baby ...

..... is 11 tomorrow! I can't believe it! Year 7 in primary school ..... how time flies ..... makes me feel quite ancient. He has a better social life than me lol.

Sam is a typical wee lad, full of life, full of fun and full of mischief although I have to say he is also a wee angel :)
This card captures his cheeky chappy personality. I have vowed to try to use up my scraps of paper and card before the new SU catalogue comes out, trying to save my pennies :) i have lots of other bits and pieces too that i need to use ...... i suppose everyone has a stash of some dsescription ..... us crafters dont like waste!!

Things have been busy in the house this weekend, preparations for Sams birthday and also we have a painter coming to do some work ..... yikes, paint makes me sneeze for about a week .... perhaps i should move out lol. Dont think the guys would like that.

Going to wind down now as have work tomorrow. Telly for the rest of the evening ...... Missing Andy for Must Be The Music!!!!!

Expecting ....

Whoopee! Found out at the weekend that my pal is expecting her 1st baby!!! Such excitement, so, as you do, the occassion has to be recognised and celebrated.

Taking inspiration from Monica's blog (sorry, still havent figured out the hyperlinks :$) i have used tempting turquoise and so saffron colour combo.

Isn't it fab! i also made my own background for the first time using my itty bitty buds stamps .... are you impressed yet? lol The stamp and sentiment I have had for a while but this is their first outing .... i'm quite sure it won't be the last.

Short and sweet post today but I have been very busy over the last week making cards and I do have pics of them all so this blog will be bursting at the seams soon ....... that's a good thing, right?

It will be next week though as i'm off on a wee long weekend to sunny Spain (YES! away from the rain!) with my Mum and big sis ..... should be fun.

Laters :) x
