I think I must be on a roll

I never thought I would complain about the sunshine or shut it out but it's playing havoc with taking piccies and whether its my cold  I've got or the sunshine thats giving me a headache I'm not sure but its not helping. Hubby is being really good today and cooking lunch.Don't know if I'll be ablbe to taste or smell it but I was looking forward to beef wellington, wonder if he'll do the washing up or still expect the fairies to do it?

Can't complain though as he has let me potter and keep disappearing to do some craft and finish cards I've been doing in dribs and drabs, oops sorry had to tell him where the english mustard is. he's also doing something called fondant potatoes and cauliflower, sounds good don't you think?

Well onto my card, I've got 2 so 2 posts to do. This is the first and its a baby card. I thought using the theme from Charisma which was white on white would be good for this one, you could use colour on the image only, well I strayed a little as I can't find my white ribbon, blame my cold, I 've lost a gold ring yesturday, can't find it anywhere. How can you loose a ring you have on upstairs , you get downstairs to make a cup of coffee and its gone. OOps digressing sorry, anyway sorry but I used blue ribbon till the white turns up, hope I can still enter.I tried paper pricking to give a little different texture to the card, there's bootees , feed bottles,hearts and flowers,not sure how well it shows up on the pictures. I used a forever friends stamp and coloured with promrkers and sakura glaze pens, then put it behind acetate in an apature. I quite like the simplicity, and the piecing is quite theraputic.

There's a baby theme at Simon says challenge this week too and stamp with fun, there must be something in the air, do you think it's because we are all yearning for the first inklings of spring. I think the seasons and mother nature is getting confused as I had lobelia and allisum flowering in pots outside my back door on christmas day all self setters and now of course they are nothing but mush. Anyway I will be entering my baby card into these challenges too.

Finally I will be entering my little bear into the challenge at die cut dreams as there theme is bears and my little forever friend will count him self in .

Enjoy your sunday luch or dinner whatever you have and enjoy the rest of your afternoon too.
