We survived!

Afternoon everyone and yes, we survived looking after Charlie for 4 days 24/7!! We are quite lost now, he is great fun and was as good as gold. He didn't ask for Keir and Lara at all and they had a fabulous few days in Venice for their anniversary.
 I made a card for them using one of the Die'sire create-a-card dies and the centre topper is a Darkroom Door image from the Venetian collection. Apologies for the photo but I forgot to take one and had to ask Keir to send me one from his phone:)


Dotty card from Anne-Marie designs.


I also used the same die to make a birthday card for Elly whose wedding we were at 3 weeks ago. I like the cuts and embossing that you get with these dies gives the effect of laser cutting.


A young couple we know have just had a baby girl so of course I had to make a card, come and see:


I made a chest of drawers stepper card and used dies to indicate date, time, weight and name and the pram.
A pretty Irish name which for those of you not familiar with it, it's pronounced Sorcha.

Keir, Lara and Charlie went home yesterday morning and Jim and I have been chilling out ever since! Thank God for retirement:)

Hope the weather picks up soon, it's a bit on the chilly side and I would like to use my new awning!!
Off to check out the Less is More challenge and catch up on all your blogs, hope you've all had a good bank holiday weekend.

What a wonderful collection of cards, Val! All gorgeous and very elegant! Love them all, but I think the middle one just makes it as my favourite - love the effect of the embossing and shading
