A little pink

Hi all, how you doin? We are having some very hot weather here in Perth so its nice to spend the day at home with the air/con on and jumping in and out of the pool and eating yummy crunchy sweet fresh grapes straight from the Swan Valley.

A little crafting is going on here-not much but some.

Here is another rosette, pink this time on top of one of my handmade boxes all ready to give to a sweet girl who will be turning 14, who as i type this is one her way to KL for some shopping with her family. Happy Birthday Rebecca.

and here is the card i made for her birthday. Everything is from my Cocoa Daisy November kit and Stampin Up. Apart from my vintage button which was courtesy of my MIL. I do so love buttons and hate to part with them but what good are they sitting in a box?

Next up is a card inspired by PTI and they were easy to make so i made a couple to put in my stash and the stash i am creating for my SIL who loves to give home made cards.
Flower stamp is from PTI everything else is Stampin Up. BTW Andrew and Caitlin hate dislike the Kraft one and yes i think the green and red ones are better.

Joe is fast asleep and has been for nearly the whole day, he worked from 12 noon yesterday until 11.30pm poor thing he could hardly walk when i picked him up. He is still loving it and coming home with funny tails from the kitchen every night. As yet he has not cooked me anything but i am patient and can wait.

I want to do a LO now it has been a whilst since i did one but i just don't feel it if you get what i mean. I may stick with cards or do some Off the page thingy or work on my mini album or maybe i will go and have another swim. I have told said 18yo daughter and friend to get out of the pool as they have been in there for about 2 hours and they WILL be burnt but ha who am i to know these things.

Have fun, thanks for visiting i so love it when you do.

Lovely cards Linda - the flower stamp is really pretty. Your rosette is the perfect embellishment for the gift box. Glad to hear you are keeping cool - I have been working on a quilt today - not really a suitable activity for this heat!

Such a pretty box Linda.....the rosette makes it very special! Great cards.....and you know I love the vintage button! (I find it hard to part with them too)

Love everything, but that rosette is too cute. Being in aircond or the pool is the only solution today, so keep cool.
love me :-)
