Anyway we are picking our grandson George up from Leeds tomorrow, and having him for the day, so have to be up at 6 in the morning, not something we do very often, now we are retired, so going to be a long day, so think an early night is called for, so bye for now

Isn't the image on this card so cute

My friend Susan gifted me a few PB images, and this one is so cute. I coloured it with a mixture of copics, promarkers and prisma pencils, used seam binding for the bow, and the gems and flowers are a birthday gift from my daughter, will add a sentiment, when I decide who the card is for . I am entering it in the following challenges

Happy Anniversary

Well it was my birthday yesterday, and our wedding anniversary, 42 years, and I nearly forgot to make hubby a card. Well my excuse is I have a lot on my mind,  our new granddaughter is due in the next few weeks, and as her brother arrived 5 weeks early, every time the phone rings, I think it's news. And it doesn't help that they live in Birmingham. Anyway here is the card
The image and backing paper are from a MCS CD, and I cut the letters out with my silhouette SD, and the ribbon is from my stash, I think I bought it to go round a wedding cake and never used it                                                                        
I am entering the card in sketchandstashchallenge    85 Kevins Sketch   x
Well we are off to Manchester tomorrow to see Il Divo in concert, this is our anniversary present to each other, seen them twice before, so know they will be great.

An Easter Card

Well finally got round to making a card that I can show you. I spent most of the weekend making sample cards for the POTW on Creat and Craft on Fri 13th, so they are top secret at the moment,  then we have had Megan and Freya for a couple of days, as it is school holidays, they have made easter cards and an easter basket each today, and they made a very good job of them. Anyway footy on the telly tonight, so I have made a couple of easter cards myself, and here is one of them

I found the cute chicken image here and coloured it with copics
flowers from wild orchid
everything else from stash
