Sentimental Sundays Challenge & Some News...


Firstly my news is that I'm a Nanny (Grandmother) again, my son Craig & his partner Zoe had a gorgeous little girl yesterday (they haven't got a name for her yet) a little sister to Ryan & Abigail who are very excited.  Unfortunately they don't live close by so I've got to wait until the end of the week before I can meet her (but I can't wait).

So on the the challenge: the Sentimental Sundays challenge this week is "Flowers", nice & easy this time & it made me get on with my MIL's birthday card.  I used this wonderful image from Lili of the Valley & coloured her with ProMarkers.  The finishing touches are lace, doily, flowers (of course), greeting & gems. 

The challenges:
Card Makin Mamas - Birthday Cards
Papertake - Anything Goes
Moving Along With The Times - Don't be Square
Sassy Studio - Feeling Sentimental
Emerald Faerie Garden - Lace
The Poodles Parlour - Round & Round the Garden 
Miami Doodles - Flowers
Paper Creator - All About Flowers 
Come & Get It - Fall Birthdays
Little Darlings - Girly 
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday Cards 


Hope you're all having a lovely weekend :)
