Hi ya,

A HuGe BiG Thank you to everyone who has been sending us their congratulations on our big news. We are so excited to be joining the ‘Mummy & Daddy Club’. The last few weeks have been rough, but I am thankful that I am now beginning to feel much better, and my diet has expanded from mashed potato and soup! I know I’m Irish, but mashed spuds and soup were starting to get a little tiresome!

And guess what else – I even got to play in my craft room this weekend! That is a sure sign that I am getting back on track! Yippppeeeeee!!

Here’s a sneaky peeky of a layout that i’m going to be sharing with you real soon…

But for today – a card to share. This has been in my box of cards for about three weeks now and for some reason it always manages to escape the photo shoots! I confessed to Hayley and Glenn that they definitely are getting a card, so the pressure is on to get it in the post to them! Ha ha! They must be in their new home about 2-3 months now – whooops!

This was my first play with my new Spellbinders scallop border die. I actually accidently bought the bigger one when I fully intended to buy the small one, but never mind. Of course I realised my mistake before opening the package, but I simply just cant hold something crafty and not play with it. I figured I would eventually buy this one too so I’d just keep it. heehee! Because i’ve been so sick, Craig is spoiling me rotten, so he was just glad that I was able to do a little crafting, even though this card to days to make because of the nausea.

The beautiful background paper is from the Quite Contrary line by My Minds Eye! I simply love this paper pad – so summery and bright, and definitely very girly, perfect for cousin Hayley. The greeny blue paper is also from MME, but is from the Bloom and Grow paper pack, which is getting rather thin im sad to say – but I guess thats a sign of a good purchase! I’m sure theres a few paper packs on my shelf that haven’t ever been opened! EEk!

The ‘New Home’ greeting I actually printed out on the computer – although I was so sure I had a New Home stamp in my stash – but I couldn’t find it, so i’ll just need to keep my eyes open incase I see a good one for sale. If you know of any, please let me know.

Oh, and the stamp is Unity Stamp Co…of course!

Thanks again for popping in.

Have a great day.

We’re off to a wedding tomorrow! Yeay!

I’ve been looking forward to going to this wedding for months! And of course, a special occasion means a special card, so i’ve followed instructions on a cool video on You Tube to make this card. It’s so simple, you really should check it out, and it gives fantastic results in just a few moments. All you’ll need is a ruler and a scoring tool – the rest is a piece of cake!

Hmmm, can’t wait for the wedding cake!

I think one of the reasons why I am looking forward to tomorrow so much is because not only do I get to dress up all pretty, but Craig also gets to wear his kilt. Hee hee! My handsome Scotsman!

Thanks for stopping by, and have fun making your own Fun Fold Cards!
