I know, I know, I'm a bit late - but better late than never, eh! Hope you all had a happy New Year - whatever you did! We were a couple of boring old farts and were in bed and asleep by 11, the joys of having a small person who wakes at 6 has long ago meant that we don't get late nights now. Not that I would change a bit of it, I'd much rather have the small person than the biggest New Year celebrations!
So this is my first card of 2012 - it was a for little boy whose 4th birthday party we went to today. Met him and his mum when he was 6 weeks old. He is just that big younger than Emily so will be in the year below when he starts school this September and we don't get to see as much of him (or his mum!) as we used to but we do try and stay in contact and see as much of them as we can.
Waffle over here is the card:
Lili of the Valley stamp - Sailing Boat, coloured with my Promarkers
All the papers are an Echo Park pad - Splash
The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and cut out with Die-namics die
Scallop border is also a Die-namics die (one of my Christmas presents)
Do you ever have one of those days where nothing goes right? Well this is a card made on one of those days, the backing card ripped, after I'd stuck the paper to it; the sentiment didn't cut straight and the scallop tore as I was trimming it so had to go dig through my stuff to find something to put over it.
I think about the only thing I'm happy with is the colouring on the image!!
Hopefully, as Emily goes back to school on Weds, I'll have some time to tidy my house and get back into routines next week. Which is going to include some exercise for yours truly - have put on 1/2 a stone over the break and that's not good!!!
See's ya soon,
