A quick post

Hi Guys,

My hols are over and I haven't done half of what I planned to do (like clean & organise house, its worse than before my hols!!). So much for the theory that I would blog heaps and enter all the challenges. Been too busy gallivanting out & about, having coffee, dinners out, spending time in Sydney, what a life. Pity work has to interfere with all that but the bills do have to be paid.

Anyway, enough ramble. My cousins had a gorgeous girl, Kaia Jay, this week. I made a card for her, CASEd from this one on Splitcoast. It was very easy & I think it is pretty.

I used a base of Kraft CS, ran 'Very Vanilla' CS through the 'Big Shot' with the Polka Dots embossing folder for the top half, & used 'Sweet Always' DSP for the base. The stamp is from 'Punches Three', very cute. The addition of some' Chocolate Chip' CS, doctored with the ''Scallop Edge' punch, and some Regal Rose ribbon finishes it off. Finally I printed Kaia's name using my computer to personalise it.

Their 2yo son, Byron, is now a big brother, so we sent him a little gift with this notecard attached.

This is a SU notecard, so handy. I inked up the engine stamp from 'Choo Choo' (hope this set makes the next IB&C) with Pacific Point and added black & silver accents. The 'Brother' stamp is from 'Wonderful Favourite', its a shame I didn't have room to add the 'wonderful'. I hope Byron likes getting his own little card in the mail.

Well, must go & think about the 'going to work' process. It is a damp, chilly night, not really conducive to heading out. Oh well.

Catch you soon, I hope,
Fi x

You are such a sweetie ... thinking to send the big brother a card too! Such a soft heart, Fi! Love the pretty baby card, too! So sorry to hear the hol is all over. Hope it wasn't too painful going back to work! Hugs Andrea xx
