Enjoy Your Birthday

Good morning friends, it's a lovely hot and
 sunny day here. I hope you have good weather
Today I am sharing my 'Less is More' card.
It's a sketch this time and this is what I came
 up with. Sketch below my card btw.
I don't know how I managed to make a card 
as my craft room is a complete disaster area
 atm. lol. I had a tiny space and I just about
found room  to make this card.
I spent ages looking for a die set I had bought.
I found the empty packet but no die arghhh!
Does that sound familiar?... I found it under
a pile of card bits and pieces in the end.
Have a lovely weekend whatever you have
planned. We  were babysitting our older
 granddaughter  yesterday, she is so good...
although teething  again poor baby.
Tomorrow we are going to see our new 
granddaughter again, can't wait for more
I must have a tidy up right NOW!!!
First though come and have a closer look
 at my card ;) In a blue mood for a change
here.I could have entered this last week with
 the stencilling too....doh!

New Home card and some baby news!

Good afternoon friends, a rather wet and 
cooler day here today 14c. We had a hot 
sunny one yesterday though  26c too,
 so lovely.
Before I share my usual Sat 'LIM' card I 
have some exciting news !

Our latest grandchild arrived as planned
yesterday at 11.50 am. Much worrying and
 pacing about by me as usual. For once I am
pleased to say everything went perfectly. 
Both mummy and baby are doing well.

She has no name as yet but weighed in at
7lbs. 10oz, so a good weight. We are 
hoping to see her today if all goes well.
Pics and name to follow ;)

Sorry I am late commenting again but as
you can see we have been quite busy ;)

Right onto my usual 'Less is More' card
now. It's a 'one layer' card this week and
the theme is 'Home'.
I started a two layer card as usual then 
realized my mistake luckily. Anyway
come and have a closer look ....

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have 
planned ;)

Unforgettable card

Good afternoon friends. Just popping by to 
show you another quick card today.

 Just back from the dentist today,
 not that keen on going like many
others. Few problems but not as bad
 as I thought thank heavens !!
We still have  a nest of Bumble bees nesting
 behind our facia beside our bedroom.
 Bombus Hypnorum to be exact,a protected
 species. I do want to help bees as they are
 in decline I know. 
Our garden is perfect for wildlife
 ( the insect kind lol), so no wonder they picked
 us!  But the constant buzz buzz,
( more like morse code really) is annoying.
 They keep us awake at night and in the 
morning too. Getting more used to it I guess
now though. They get very noisy at 2.30 am.
 for some reason. Hope they buzz off soon!!!
Anyway enough rambling yet again....sorry!!!
Come and have a closer look at my card ;)

Flamingo card

Good morning friends, it's a lovely warm
and sunny day here today. I hope you all
have it too.
Late with my Saturday 'Less is More' card
as our son asked us to join them for a nice
pub lunch and walk yesterday.Their  baby is
 due any minute of course.
 My DIL looks  amazing too. I suggested
 names which they liked, no decision yet 
though ;) Next Friday is the day she will
arrive , unless it happens naturally before
 then. She is breech atm. too still.
Such a  lovely day, anyway I have made my
 card at  last! It's a colour challenge this 
week and....
Of course sunset said pink to me lol. Well
it would of course and everyone who knows 
me won't be at all suprised !
I went for an Ombre look, pale shades of the 
setting sun....well that's what it said to me
 I wanted a watercolour look to my
flamingo and tried my new Zig Clean color
real brush pens. (HAD to get those when I saw
them whilst blog hopping).....yes I know not
easy on  the purse this blog hopping is it!!!
After much effort ( several coloured images) and
 trying various mediums I  relented and had to use 
my trusty Copic pens. The printed image didn't
 like watercolour of  course. 
Loving the new pens though so you will be seeing 
more of them very soon. Sooo hard to open though,
 my poor nails haven't  recovered yet...and I have 
only opened 3 so far!!
Enough waffling from me again,come and have a 
closer look ;) here is my card....
