How are we all? Well I hope :) It's half way through the first week back at work and I hope everyone's coping ok?! After Christmas, it's quite nice to get back into a routine I think :) I can't quite believe it's Wednesday already though, that's whoosed by!
I personally am not working this week and so today I decided to be a 'real' housewife and made lemon and poppy seed cakes-yummy! Now, that's not as much of a treat for DOH as it sounds as I'm wheat intolerant so I, obviously, HAD to wheat free cakes! He always complains when I feed him anything he knows to be wheat free, but I have noticed that if I don't mention it then he doesn't realise and it's only when he finds out that his beloved wheat is missing that he turns his nose up! I think sometimes that men are worse than children in that respect! ;) Oh well, if he does decide that he doesn't want to eat them then there will be more for me! He he! :)
I am here to share a card with you today that is for an ex-blogging friend of mine...that is she no longer blogs, not that she's an ex-friend :) It's actually for her baby daughter who will be turning one soon...did someone say broody?! Me?! Absolutely, yes! :) I cannot believe that little Grace is nearly a year old already, it seems like only yesterday Kelly informed me that she was pregnant!
My card was inspired by two things...the Retro Sketches sketch and by this gorgeous card by my sweet blogging pal at Just Me: C. She reminded me that I do actually own patterned papers and that they are there to be used, NOT just hoarded!! Who'd've thunk it?! (No, that's not a typo - I mean thunk!) She's also super lovely and writes a very amusing blog full of beautiful cards...you should check it out :)
I couldn't help adding stitching to this card, again! I quite like my little balloons :)
Here's the wee sketch I used...
Thank you for stopping by...I'm off to make sure that the cakes aren't poisonous before I let DOH have one when he gets home! ;) He he!
