The few cards I've made recently have been uninspired rushed jobs-becuase I had to make them rather than for the joy of making them so to make this card was a real treat. The bits to make it have been gradually piled on my desk over the last few days-adding little bits as the idea grew-and as time allowed in between changing nappies!

The sketch is from 2sketches4u


We've been very busy lately reorganising things at home-the main change being...we've rehomed our house rabbits Bert & Ernie. They weren't getting the attention they deserved from us, and the pain from my hypermobility syndrome has been getting worse making it very difficult for me to get down on the floor to play with them and clean cages etc. They've gone to a very loving home so after weeks of feeling guilty I'm finally happy we've made the right decision.

It also means we've reclaimed 2 rooms in the house! I even found a secondhand dining table and 6 chairs at the carboot sale for £110 so we have a proper dining room at last now ernie has moved out.
Please note having a dining room table to eat on does not neccessarily mean I will be cooking !! Although I did get the Rachel Allen Bake! book for mother's day-the cookies are to die for-hubby thought they came from M&S-praise indeed!!!


Off to get some more bits done before Little Miss decides to wake up-to follow one posing baby shot!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fab card Nick - I love the wire detail on it.

Gorgeous picture of CJ - looks like she's posing for you!!

Love the table too & easier to clean than the rabbits - that must have been a tough decision for you.
