Weekend in London

I ve spent two days with this little guy!!! He s coming along nicely and i cannot belive he is now nearly 8 months old. I also don't understand how their smooth skin can whitstand all those kisses, I seem to have been permanently attached to every inch of his face, neck, head, bum.... you get the idea LOL all weekend . To say I adore him is an understatment, I m looking forward to be part of his life tremendously. Luca, Moni loves you very very much....

Oh and he also smiles just like me when I was little, do you know how that just melts my heart? sigh

Ok back to buisness lol, I have received some beautiful cards that I just have to share with you. I love the power a handmade card has and I always feel uplifted every time I receive one. This card was made for ME by the very talented Julie

I love what she did with this card, my favorite combo of pinks and greens and she used the ever so beautiful Simply Said set by StampinUP. I love this girl, it think is so amazing that I ve only actually seen her a handful of times but we just clicked instantly she s a really nice kind and very funy lady. Mwah hunny M xx

This next one completly blew me away, love the simplicity of it all.

Tell me just how fabulosly gorgeous this card is? I love everything about it and I am going to steal this idea for sure. I can use all my SU punches for this as well as my scraps of card stock. It was made by the very clever Fiona. Thank you so much my darling ( sorry I have not got a link to this ladys work)ETA I found Fiona s blog just click on her name. xx

I cannot close this post without showing you one of my recently made cards. I ve found this combo on Spiltcoast and I just loved it at once, also i cannot leave this set alone I am so taken with it, is the Garden Silhouettes level two hostess from SU> WONDERFUL!!!!

So saffron card stock was inked with More Mustard ink, the grass head was stamped with Versamark and embossed in white on Tempting turquoise card stock, then stamped again in Versamark and Tempting Turquoise ink. Sentiment form Simply Said, temp turquoise brads and Choc. Chip ribbon. TFL see ya !!! M xxx
