I drew a grid very feintly onto the cardstock and stamped the sentiment. Next I punched out the butterflies with a Woodware punch, embossed the white ones in an embossing folder, and embellished the blue ones with faux pearls. Then I arranged them as best I could within the grid, rubbed out the lines and job's a good 'un.
Today saw me getting a very overdue chazza fix although maybe 'fix' is a misnomer, as yet again pickings were very slim and... expensive. I did however find this lovely water carafe and glass for the guest room.

This week saw an addition to the family as my cousin Zoe had her first baby on Wednesday morning. A little girl weighing in at 7lbs 14oz who has been named Lara Bonnie. The middle name is after my mum, as it was her family nickname, her grandmother said she was such a bonny baby the first time she saw her and it stuck for the rest of her life. As she got older she became 'Bon', but Zoe always called her Auntie Bonnie and I think mum would have been so touched to have her great niece named after her. We were all hoping the baby would arrive today as it is mum's birthday, she would have been 73. Hoping to go and see baby Lara next week so be prepared for pics!
Thats all from me, got a riveting evening ahead sorting out a mountain of bags/shoes in the bottom of my wardrobe, what a wild life I lead.
Thanks for looking and hello to my new followers Ziggy, Ardyth and Ivy Black.
