Last night we had our gorgeous grandson, Leo, over to stay and he is such a comic.   At 61/2 months old you can image how inquisitive and fidgety he is.  Well he's had us in stiches over the weekend by pulling such a funny face, not quite sure where he's got it from.  He is almost sitting up on his own with just the odd wobble or two here and there and he really enjoys tummy time with all his toys. 
I finally managed to capture him with one of his funny faces on:

and here he is with some of his toys, isn't he adorable or am I just
Well today its my sisters birthday and what a present she got, the lovely snow...  Now if you're like me you will enjoy looking at it but not going out in it.  Lukily, in some ways, I don't have to do that as I'm still off work but still don't like to see the white stuff on the ground.  I managed to make the cards for mum and me and took them down last night.  The girls chose two that I had already made so that took a little bit of pressure off me.

For my mums card I used Paisley Petals to create a elegant card.  I stamped the image onto very vanilla card and then, using blender pens, I copied the colours from the DSP that goes with this stamp set.  The larger flower head had been cut out and mounted using dimesional.  I was inspired to create the corners from a publication demos receive from SU and it's using one of the punches.  If you would like to know more then come to one of my classes to find out how to do it :)  I have also used punches to create the bottom boarder.  The sentiments are from the hostess set Happiest Birthday wishes and the For my Family sentiment set from the main catty. 

The next card is from me.  I've used the Creative elements set and created the background by resist embossing.  The sentiment is again from the For my Family set and the frame has been embossed using the big shot and cut out by hand.  The colour combination for this card is Soft Suede, Crumb cake and Calypso Coral

Tomorrows its my youngest's birthday so I'll be back to show you some of the cards I made her.  
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my creations.

  1. Yes you are bias, but you are also correct in that he is adorable. Your cards have convinced me that those free papers are actually really nice. You've done two beautiful cards.
    Yes must meet soon! Zx
