Clean and Simple with the Cuties

I couldn't resist this absolute sweetie, saying her prayers. I have used ProMarkers to colour, and teamed up with a do from a older Graphic 45 stack, then added YNS gumdrops to complete.

As I said, we were away last weekend......having a wonderful weekend in Scotland celebrating my step-daughter's wedding, which was a beautiful day......and just enjoying the family getting together, I haven't laughed as much in ages. I have a couple of my own photos to share, until we get our prints from the official chappy.

I don't think we scrubbed up to badly!

For my own DT card I am using a stamp from the, My Favourite Things - Lucky Dog, set. This set was a gift from a lovely friend of mine, and is a little treat to use from time to time. I used a woodware paw print punch and a freebie download paper to keep the doggy theme going.

We do hope that you will come over and join us for this challenge.......

First post of 2020!

Hello my lovely blog chums.....yikes, we are nearly a third of the way into January, and I realised I hadn't blogged this year, yet!
I do hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year time,  Ours was quiet, but enjoyable nonetheless.

One of the high points was the first birthday of our gorgeous twin grandsons, Will and Alex. Their first year has flown by, and they are an absolute joy, neither are walking independently.........yet, but both pull themselves up on the chairs and cruise along like that, so I'm sure it won't be long, lots of babbling too, so I think we will have two little chatterboxes, lol

when they were born, they were delivered a couple of weeks earlier, and I never got to making New Baby cards for them so I was determined to make special birthday cards. Obviously I made two cards, I am saving the other one as I think the image will be perfect for an up and coming DT card, but this is Will's card. I had been commenting on a challenge card just before Christmas and I loved the U-fold style that had been used, so decided it would be fun to try........

The super cute image is from Gerda  Steiner (how sweet!!!!), coloured with ProMarkers. I used a combination of papers from Limetree Crafts. I added a variety of die cuts to set it off.

I have a couple of challenges that I am entering, but before all that I thought I would share a little photo of the boys.....enjoying breakfast on their birthday (Alex is eating and Will has the red cup)

So, onto the challenges......
