Squares for Craftwork Cards

Here's the sketch for this week's sketch challenge over at Craftwork Cards.
and here's what I came up with. I used Yummy Scrummy mint and chocolate papers
a lot of stitching, some choc punched flowers and aqua card candy. The square birthday sentiment is a new addition to their range, I really like them

and here's is the link to Scrappy Go Lucky's blog if you want to see the whole of this next card that I made with Wall Decor and More Cricut cartridge





I am in London, doing a bit of babysitting (Max and Milo). I won't get to see Kiki and Monty this time unfortunately. Kiki's 'other' grandma and I were chatting the other day, and Eve told me that she was looking after Kiki for the day, and they were going to bake a cake, so she sat Kiki down with a book of cake designs. Our little five year old fell in love with an elaborate flowery cake. 'how old are you grandma?' she asked 'ermmm, about 40' Eve lied
'well when you die grandma, I'm going to bake you this cake. I think that would be a really nice thing to do when you die'
'well perhaps you could make it before I die so that I get to eat it' said Eve
'oh, alright' said our little princess, wandering off into the garden to play

Beautiful colors and card. When my granddaughter was that age she said she wanted all my cookbooks when I die. She's never forgotten she said that. She's 20 now and still saying she wants my cookbooks!

Love the card! This color combo is one of my favorites and you did a wonderful job on this one. (as usual)
Where do kids come up with these things?
Here's one for you. My niece and nephew took the kids to see some fireworks around the 4th, there were some people behind them acting like jerks. Dad explained that it isn't nice to call people jerks, but sometimes people act like jerks. Now Sami, age 3, has decided that when she grows up she will "teach jerks how to act" sounds like a good job to me, she should never run out of people to teach.
