Brown and Blue and a bit of news !!!

Hi all !!!! This week over at Crafts 4 Eternity the challenge a colour challenge and is to be inspired by the picture below.

I used a Lili of the Valley image in blues and browns. The papers I used are scraps from my ever growing pile, the brown one is a nitwit paper but the blue well .............. sorry !! I used a primrose punch around the corner punch on the squares and the flowers are Doohickey edged with blue ink.

For my news (some of you already know this) This card is already in the hands of its recipient !!! A dear friend made me the most beautiful jacket for the baby I am expecting in December !!! So I had to make her a special card to say thank you !!! Thank you once again I know you will be reading this !!! Yes a little girl will come bouncing my way in December !!!! So I get to celebrate my 40th (too soon now) being sober, very pregnant and frumpy!!! hehe !!! As a friend said, its not important my little girl is !!!

Well I am off to the craft show at Harrogate tomorrow and cant wait to buy all those things I never knew I NEEDED !!!! My shopping list is long but the pennies are short so its prioritise !!!! Mmm ........... Ah well who needs to eat next week !!!!! hehe !!
