A Spoonfull of Sugar # 138, Lily of the Valley # 84, Papertake Weekly and Cute Card Thursday # 151

Went to visit my new baby niece last night. She is gorgeous and has a head of black hair.  Although she was much finer than I thought she would be for her birth weight.  I was expecting a little bruiser as they say but she has very small hands and feet and is so cute.  Got to nurse her as did hubby and the girls and fed her a bottle too.  Think Shannon is looking for a baby brother or sister - no chance, three is definitely plenty for me.  Too old anyway and I wouldn't relish the thought of nine months of sickness again. 

Got this card completed today and then when hubby came home we went out for tea as it is Hollie's birthday tomorrow and it wouldn't be a good night to take her out with it being Valentine's Day. Going shopping or rather 'window shopping' to Belfast tomorrow as that is what she wants to do and then to the cinema on Tuesday to see Yogi Bear before she goes back to school on Wednesday.  We are going to take her ice-skating next Sunday as hubby won't be working.  Hopefully our shop will be opening on Wednesday in our new premises. Fingers crossed.

I am entering my card into four challenges : -

Lily of the Valley # 84 - Follow Sketch and use a LOTV image
A Spoonfull of Sugar # 138 - Show Love (wedding, hearts, valentines)
Papertake Weekly - Have a heart (include a heart on our card - the hearts are on the image - hope this is suitable)
Cute Card Thursday # 151 - Hearts and Flowers (again hearts on the image)

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Die Cuts With A View
Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye (free with magazine and nearly all used now.  Loved these papers)
Image - LOTV
Coloured with Distress Inks
Gems - Mei Flower
Ribbon from local craft shop
Sentiment - Computer generated
Verse from internet
Woodware Punch
