New Baby Girl

My cousin has just become the proud daddy to be a little baby girl - Lucy.

I made these 2 cards - one from me and the 2nd one from my mum and dad.

I love this pram stamp. It's from the Fun and Fast Notes Stampin' Up set.

This one is a Magnolia stamp which I've paper pieced.

Mum, my niece and I had a fab time today buying a few ;o) bits for the newest member of our family.

45 years ago

My parents got married on 9th November 1963 and my brother-in-law was born on 11th November 1963. It means that, despite BIL saying that he's younger than he is, we always can remember how old he is LOL What it also means is that I have 2 family cards to make so here they are.

First up is mum and dad's anniversary card. I used all Stampin' Up goodies on it. The stamps are one of my new sets and they're gorgeous.

Next is BIL's card and he likes a pint so this Stamps Away stamp was perfect. The papers are Doodlebug.

Cute teddy

With getting my boiler replaced last week, I had to make this card quickly. It's for my mum and dad to send to my uncle. Thank gawd for these Forever Friends stickers. I only bought them because they're cute (never could resist anything cute) but I didn't realise that I'd use them LOL. I wonder if I could find one for my brother-in-laws birthday card. His birthday is next Tuesday and I'm stuck to know what to do for his card.

The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up and the papers are Papermania --- which I've had for ages!!!

Great weekend of sport

I couldn't let this weekend go by without mentioning what has happened.

First up we had the fab Spurs beating the not so mighty Liverpool at football yesterday. My nephew's are massive Liverpool fans so I had to gloat - it was my duty as an auntie!!! What made it even better was that it was on the back of gloating to my niece - who says that she's an A**5**1 fan LOL

Then today we had the superb performance from our local lad - Lewis Hamilton. Gawd can he drive brilliantly or what??? I know that Mclaren have nurtured him from when he was little but he has to have a raw talent for them to have invested so much time and money into him. Sooooo CONGRATULATIONS LEWIS --- like he's going to read my blog LOL

I'll hopefully be posting more cards and maybe even a scrapbook page or two soon as I've got the week off work - yippee dippy doo daa :o)
