Clean and Simple

I am still trying to get in touch with Nancy from Ohio who won the Papercraft Inspirations book last week. Can you email me with your address please Nancy?

Here's a very simple card, striking I think because of the lovely papers and elements, all from Craftwork Cards. The base card is 6 x 6, scallop and plain circle cut with nestabilities, and the little flower is from the Flower Fusion pack 



So we have been doing a spot of babysitting, Max and Milo were good little boys, with bursts of doing what little boys do best.........here is Milo, refining his skill of blowing huge bubbles through his straw into his apple juice................ 


Max had been put in charge, so when I made a comment along the lines of 'no more treats boys, it will be lunch soon', he heaved a huge patient sigh, looked at me sorrowfully and said: 'Ma, you are NOT the government!' Five! He will be Prime Minister by the time he is ten at this rate :)

They turned the garden into a mud bath when we weren't looking.................



Today our sweet lovely little granddaughter Kiki is eight. Happy happy birthday sweetheart


The craft cupboard is in disarray - I am working on some magazine stuff and another project at the same time and everything is getting mixed up as I dash between projects, but I'll be back tomorrow
