It seems forever since I had chance to go into my room and do something that I want to do.
I am entering it in
Lili of the Valley Challenge - Fun & Games
Cute Card Thursday - For his eyes only
Allsorts Challenge - Free & Easy
The Papers are from Stampin Up.

I am also entering it in the Papertake Weekly Challenge - which is "Getting Cute" and I think this LOTV stamp is very cute indeed.
The theme in this week's Cute Card Thursday is "Circles" and I have two of them so I am entering it in that Challenge as well.
I went to the Craft Fair at Doncaster Racecourse on Sunday and thought it was really good - I wish I had more time to look round but we were going on to my daughter's at Retford afterwards.
We had to play at schools and my grandaughter was the teacher - it was very funny!!!

and I have used the theme from the Colour Create Challenge - which was Fuschia, Green & White
I am also entering it in the Papertake Weekly Challenge because the theme over there is Hot, Hot, Hot - and I think the pink is a pretty hot colour, don't you.
The papers I have used are from Pink Petticoat and the stamp is LOTV.
I have just been so busy this last week or so. Firstly, the Insurance people have wrote the car off so we have been busy looking for another one and actually got it last Friday.
Then we have spent most of the weekend looking round Nursing Homes for David's relative, Rene. The home she is in at the moment has not come up to scratch and the nursing part is being closed down so we have to find somewhere else for her. We have decided between two and left the final decision to her nephew in Canada.
Today my little grand-daughter, Florence, has been up so it has been quite hectic.
Hope you have all had a good weekend - I really will get round to looking at all your blogs!

I am also entering this in the Just Magnolia Challenge - which is "Anything Goes" and also in the Allsorts Challenge - which is "Free and Easy"
Thank you for looking - I will have to go and make the tea now. I have made some wedges from the potatoes that I dug up yesterday so I am looking forward to those. We are also having home grown lettuce, radish and spring onions.

The first one is of my son and daughter-in-law and my little Granddaughter, Meriel, who was one yesterday and got Christened today.
It was very strange because I was going to wear that dress last night but wore a different one instead, so I wore that one today (obviously!!)
Meri's dress was very similar to mine and she had a little pink cardi to match as well. What a coincidence.

It looks like he has a pint of Guiness in his hand (that is what my husband used to drink but now he has gone on to the Real Ales)
The papers are from Pink Petticoat. Thank you for looking and have a good evening.

Thank you for looking and hope you all have a lovely weekend

It seems ages since I did any blogging - the main reason being that it was my son's 40th birthday on the 15th June and I had been making a special surprise for him.
It is my Grand-daughter's on the 1st, then she is getting Christened on the 2nd.

Anyway I did manage to get round to making a card for the Totally Paper Crafts Challenge - which is "Get Fruity". Now I actually have some cherries in the garden which won't be long before they are ready for picking. But I haven't chosen cherries - I have used my new Magnolia stamp which has strawberries on it - my little Florence loves strawberries.

Hope you all have a brilliant weekend with lots more sunshine.

I made this card for one of my husband's customers but unfortunately he took the card before I got chance to get a good photo of it. There is a shadow on it because it was taken at night in my room.

I have used the sketch from the Sketch Saturday Challenge
which was actually quite a nice one to do.

Well at least today has been quite a nice day.
The Papertake Challenge was Pale, Pretty Pastels
