World Card Making Day is Coming....

This Saturday, October 3rd, is World Card Making Day.
It's a day I look forward to every year & can't wait to enjoy this fun day with lots of online friends.
There are a couple of places you can visit to join in some great challenges & share your love of card making with others.
My favourites are Scrap Pile & Scrapboutique.

I haven't made anything for awhile now. I'm saving it all for this weekend, LOL.
The kids are on school holidays so I've been having lots of lovely sleep ins & just running at a more relaxed pace.

I'd like to thank the very lovely Karen for giving me this cute award.

I would love to pass this award on to some very inspiring girls.
My dear friends Mel & Gill. These 2 ladies are incredibly creative & make me laugh like crazy.
I'd also like to pass it on to my beautiful girl, Chloe. Her creations are always stunning & she also inspires me with all she manages to accomplish.

Well that's it from me today.
Hope you all enjoy WCMD :)

IT'S A BOY.....

Well, I can finally tell you about my exciting news!!!!! I'm a granny again!!!!!!!
My beautiful daughter, Chloe, gave birth to her second child today & it's a little boy :)
His name is Oliver James & he weighed 9lb 8oz.
I don't have any photos yet but will post some as soon as I can.

I can also finally reveal the card I made for bub's birth a few weeks ago.
It was for a wonderful challenge set by gorgeous Manon at Scrap Boutique & it's a never ending card. It just keeps folding & folding & is a lot of fun. Thanks Manon, I loved this challenge.

This is my cover

Then it folds to this

and to this

and finally to this.

The kraft section is where I'll write my message.
I used the adorable October Afternoon range, "Ducks in a Row".

Thanks for stopping by.
Take care & keep smiling :)

I'm Bursting With Excitement....

Hi again everyone.
How are things going?
I'm very, very excited today but I won't say anything just yet but will be back to share some wonderful news soon.

Over the weekend I spent some creative time in my room playing with some gorgeous new Rouge de Garance papers that I fell in love with as soon as I saw them.
I've also used my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add to the fresh look.
Here they are:

Well, I hope to be back soon with my news.
Until then, bye :)
