Merry Christmas to You All

It's been such a long time since I posted. Not a good blogger am I?  I promise next year will be better. My depression seems to have taken over my life some what. I know I've got to make changes and I will. 
Christmas Eve already. Where oh where as this year gone?
 In just 11 weeks my daughter will be having her second child. Finally a boy in the family. This little man will be spoilt for sure. 
Well, I've been up since 5.30 am and done all my  food shop. My friend and I meet early to avoid the terrible rush. So much to do today. I even have a pantomime later with Holly. Then lay the table for tomorrow, sort dinner out and  play Santa. Hubby does nothing but watch....he makes me so angry!
So my dear blogger friends...have a wonderful Christmas, a healthy one too. I will catch you all when it's all over. I'm off for a power nap.
Hugs and loves

Baby Announcement Cards

I hope I find you all well and having a super weekend. Firstly I'd like to apologise for my absence. I have not blogged for such a long time. There as been so much going on and I just don't seem to have the time to sit at the computer to do a post. I have been crafting, making the odd card. I've taken pictures, so will be showing them off....I promise.
My eldest Daughter is expecting her second child - due on March 11th. She's been so poorly with this pregnancy. The sickness as been so bad, she ended up in hospital and had 7 bags of fluid. Thankfully it's all calming down now. She as her second scan next week and will be finding out the sex of the baby. She's asked if I will make up some announcement cards for special people. I have 4 to make in all. So for now I've done 4 in blue and 4 in pink. Then what ever is left I can sell on. Baby cards are always my favourite to make, so have really enjoyed making these up.
Totally in love with this adorable Tilda - A Gift from Heaven. Just the cutest.
Ingredients are as follows

First Edition Papers - Floral Pavilion - Lush!!
Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and stash.
Sentiment - computer generated.
Joy Craft Butterfly Boarder Die.
Spellbinders Butterflies.
La-la Banner Die.
 Spellbinders Nestabilities - Floral Ovals

The blue card has the same ingredients only the papers are Lillibet / A tale of friendship.
For a change I'm going to be entering a couple of Challenges.
Midweek Magnolias Challenge - Warm and Cosy - I do believe the baby in Tilda's tummy is warm and cosy.
