3 Boys + 1 Baby

As Danielle rightfully commented I forgot to mention whether I'm recovered from my flu and cold. Thankfully it's all temporary so by New Year's Eve I was pretty much fully recovered.

The other night I created three cards for men/boys who are celebrating their birthday this month and one for little Eva, who was born on New Year's Day. I can already reveal one of the boy's card, which is for Phil who is celebrating his birthday today. Congrats!

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Patterned Paper: Crate Paper, Star punch: Fiskars, button, brad, Stamps: Stampin'Up + Banana Frog + , Ink: Staz'On, Border punch: Fiskars, twine.

When school started again on Tuesday, one of Renee's classmates had had a little baby sister. Before we went I wanted to send them a card to congratulate them on their newborn.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Patterned Paper: Scenic Route, Border punch: Martha Stewart (Trellis), Alphabet letter stickers: American Crafts, ribbon: local haberdashery, Flower Centre: Prima Marketing, Clear Stamp: Papertrey Ink, Embossing Powder: Zing by American Crafts.

The packers are gone, they've done as much as they can so that we can still sleep and eat in the house until tomorrow morning. Unfortunately the container won't be able to be there as the docks are all closed due to the severe weather conditions. Instead they will send a lorry to take everything out of the house and store in their warehouse until Tuesday when the docks open again. School is happening tomorrow for reduced hours from 9.30 a.m. until 2.30 p.m. That will give the children a chance to say goodbye to their friends.

Well, this was my last post from the UK. The next time I'll blog it will be from Australia. Ciao for now.

Your masculine card is wonderful! They're always challenging for me to create, and you're such a great inspiration! I may just have to scraplift this one! LOL! ;-D

Love your dreamy little baby pretty!

Best wishes with your move! I hope and pray that all will go well for you and your family! I can't wait to see your new creations once you're settled in your new home!

Hugs and blessings,
