A Card or 2

Helllooo everyone, i hope that you all are having a wonderful weekend with a little bit of r & r and a little bit of family time and of course a little bit of me time.

First up is my entry for the monthly challenge at TM's
It's a bit different than what i usually do-I have never used paint like this on a LO before and the colours would not be my choice as i tend to opt for the warmer and natural colours. This is why it's called a challenge. It's funny these things sit in my too hard basket for a couple of weeks then I get them out and inspiration strikes. This is one of my favourite photos of Joe he was 6 months old. I have made quite a few cards this week (none are my own designs). These Christmas ones are from a kit designed by Tracey aren't they gorgeous.
And these ones are a kit from you guessed it my favourite Co. "Basic Grey". They were really easy, everything is supplied even the envelopes. Two are missing as I have already used them.

If you are in to handbags click on the link on the left. (DIY Bag Lover)What a fabulous blog, there has to be hundreds? oh OK, a lot of patterns here for so many different handbags and they are all for free. Most have tutorials as well-that's for people like me who need step by step instructions. Even if you cant sew its worth a look and then maybe you could find a nice friend to make one for you. Ha - don't ask me b/c you will be waiting a loooooong time.

My mum is coming over for lunch tomorrow and we are going to have roast lamb (it is Sunday after all). I figure that mum will probably never cook a roast again as it is way to much for one person to eat and as mum has a sweet tooth i had better go and think about what we will be having for sweets.

Thanks for stopping by

You've been a busy girl! Love those card kits from always tempted to buy one just for fun. Yours look stunning! Your LO is cute, and love what you've done with the paint. I don't tend to go too artsy either :) too lazy! Enjoy the time with your Mum, that is so thoughtful of you. What's for dessert?
P.S. packing going very slowly, but getting there!
