Good morning blogland,
One daughter off to school, one mummy getting some computer time, one daddy putting the washing on - isn't that how it should be?
It does seem so weird that a few weeks ago I was agonising over Emily going to school and now after she was home for a week with the Chicken Pox, I'm appreciating the quiet that comes with her being at school. I'm still not sure about school, I think I'd be happier with her going to Nursery but they have to grow, I know that, and I have to grow as well into accepting that she is no longer a 'baby' - some good things do come out of it. Getting back some 'me' time being one of them, more time for housework not being one of them!
Today's card is, maybe, for a friend who is 5 days overdue her baby - I have a few new baby girl cards but no new baby boy. She doesn't know if it's a girl or boy (it will be her third child and the other two are girls - so what are the odds for a boy?) so I thought I'd best get this one done quick as it's late already!

I just wanted to say as well, thank you all for your encouraging comments on my improvements in colouring. I'm very grateful for all the support, as much as hubby comments nicely (without menaces!) on my cards, it's such a confidence boost to have other cardmakers also giving encouraging views.
So cheerio for the mo, but not for too long now (I hope, unless there are any other major incidents!!).
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Passion for ProMarkers - Week 117 - 'beary special'
Sketch n Stash - Challenge 70 - Free Choice, I picked sketch number 21 my stash are the papers, really don't know how long I've had the patterned paper for, far to long to say the least! Did I mention I'm addicted to paper?
Whoops, forgot to post pic of sketch - fixing that now.
