I'm sorry I've not been around for a while, but my crafting had to be put on the back burner for a little while as lots of exciting things have been happening!
First of all my brother and his wife were blessed with another baby. Lincoln Vincent was born on 3rd April at 4.08am making me an auntie for the second time. He's totally gorgeous and I just knew he was going to be a boy. OH is thrilled too as now he has a nephew to take to the football :)
The second piece of news is one that is going to keep me busy for the next few months and more after I would think. Me and OH have been saving our hard earned for the last 2/3 years and this month we finally had enough of a deposit to buy our own home! We will soon be the proud owners of this:
It is due to be built by the end of June and we should get the keys on OH's birthday (which will make a nice pressie for him!) For the time being I am totally immersed in the world of Mortgages, Solicitors and Conveyancing which is enough to keep anyone busy.
So on to today's card, as I finally managed to free up a few hours:
I've used a super cute Saturated Canary image and coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are my new My Minds Eye- A Happy Heart and I've stitched them onto peach core-dinations card with pink cotton thread. I've used a new die from Memory Box and an older one from Marianne Creatables. The sentiment and ribbon is by Papermania, the flowers are WOC and the pearls were in my stash.
