Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend, whatever you are doing.
My youngest daughter returned to uni this morning. I dropped her off at the train station with her extremely large and heavy suitcase. She was a bit concerned about getting it on and off the train due to the weight of it. However, it appears chivalry is not dead everywhere. She rang me when she got home and said that some nice gentlemen helped her on and off the train with the case so all was okay. Of course, the fact that she is young and pretty had nothing to do with it. I am sure if I (middle aged and a bit chubby) was in the same predicament the gents would coming running to help me lol. Well, they might.
I popped into Sir Stampalot on the way home as their sale started today. Of course, a few things that I really needed (honest) ended up in my shopping basket.
I have spent the afternoon in my crafty room having a play. One of my daughters friends is having a baby girl in March so I decided to make a new baby card for her. Nothing like being organised and planning ahead. I am sure it will not last long lol.
As you can see it is very pink and girly with embellishments galore. Just what I wanted. Not the best photo in the world I am afraid but it is so grey and gloomy outside. I really want to get a photo light box but think that will have to wait until my birthday in February. Some strong hints to hubby required I think.
Anyway, what better to create a new baby card than the fab images over at Pink Gem designs. I coloured the image with promarkers and did add some sparkle to the little flowers and the pram. The papers were in a paper pack that I got last year from Ally Pally - full of gorgeous new baby girl papers. The sentiment is also from Pink Gem. The ribbons were some new ones from Crafty Ribbons that I bought in their sale recently. All of the embellishments were from my stash including the cute hand buttons and the teddy button on the bow.
Thanks for popping by and for all your lovely comments. I do enjoy reading them all.
Now to go round the house and see if my daughter has managed to leave anything behind. She usually does and I end up having to go to the Post Office with a parcel for her.
