I have had a really busy month, what with dad going into a home and sorting out his house to let, I have been working an extra day a week too. These are a few of the Christmas Cards I send to my family and friends. One Birthday card too for my friend Wendy from Cuddlybuddly forum.
Just a quick message for Elaine. Welcome to the Stampin Up 10! Lindax

It has taken me 6 weeks to actually make a card for Finns birth. I got my act together last night and made it. I cut the letters on my Cricut, using an SVG file from Sure Cuts a Lot. The shadowing was also done on SCAL. Papers and embellishments are K & Co baby boy set. Ribbons from my stash.

Are you old enough to remember David Essex....Smouldering eyes? sexy grin? Well he still has them! I went to see him last week at the Theatre Royal in Brighton. All the Fun of the Fair. Fab play with great music. We sat in the Royal Circle Box which over looks the stage. Sorry the photo is not great, as it was the finale and the stage was full of smoke.

Finn arrived last Wednesday evening weighing a whopping 9lb 2ozs. Shelley had a water birth with no gas and air, or pain relief.
Megan is a little mummy to her brother and Tyler the German Shepherd wants to wash him all the time! :o)
These photos were taken when Finn was 22 hours old.
Sorry I havn't posted for a while. Im hoping I am more on top of things now!
I have used my Cricut to Cut Letters and Numbers for these 2 cards. One is an standard A5 card. The other is 2 A5 cards stuck together, giving me 3 sides to work on. I hope you like them.

I have been decorating the lounge for the last couple of weeks. It takes a while as my OH is always in the room! :)( He is disabled with Multiple Sclerosis) Im just adding the finishing touches. Today I covered my old footstool with Laura Ashley Lloyd fabric, which matches the wallpaper.
I had to make a New Baby Girl card this week for my step grandaughter who had her second daughter this week. Megan age 3 is an auntie again! :lol: Shelley my daughter is a step nanny again:lol: at the age of 29 on Tuesday.
The Circle and scalloped circle were cut on my Cricut, using Accent Essentials. The baby is a Precious Moments sticker by Sandylion. Ribbon from Poppicrafts.

My daughter Shelley has her 29th Birthday next week. So I have been slaving away the last 2 evenings making something special for her. I cut the letters by hand after using a template to draw them out. Im really pleased with it although it may be a bit dark! :lol: When I showed hubby, he said I had put a lot of work into it but he didnt like it, " Not my thing" he said...... I know Shelley will love it and I do too. Thats all that counts.

I have almost finished the Wedding Stationary that I'm making for the girl I work with. We sat together and worked on a few layouts and came up with this very simple one. The Bridesmaids are wearing blue dresses so that is the colour scheme we used.All the invites have gone out. The Menu's are done too. Im now working on the Order of Service and hope to get them finished sometime this week.
I'm sorry I havn't posted for a few days. I have been busy with Baby Showers and Wedding Stationary! We had a great time at the Baby Shower held for my daughter Shelley. After opening presents and eating and drinking we had a few games. We played Pin the baby in the Womb! :) Anagrams of words to do with babies and guess the weight of the baby. We also had to guess the diameter of Shelleys waist.

My daughters friends from work have organised a Baby Shower for her. My contribution is a Nappy Cake. This is the first one I have ever made so I have only made a very small one. It looks top heavy with the bears on top! :lol: I'm Sure Shelley will like it just the same.
Shelley wanted Gift bags for the ladies attending so I have been roped into making them too. Printable downloads for the bags and tissure box covers are from Cuddlybuddly. She has covered KitKats with her own design wrapper and covered cheap notebooks all the same. The check paper is from K & Co. baby boy pad.
