Exciting news!!

Hi everyone we are back from celebrating Charlie's birthday and what a day he had:) He said it was the best birthday ever and his presents were fantastic! Peppa Pig and double decker buses are his passions and his dreams were realised along with a wonderful family lunch in a country pub followed by afternoon tea at home with more family members. This is the card I made for him:

Lara made a fabulous chocolate cake with Peppa Pig in a muddy puddle!

I am now able to tell you my exciting news that I have had to keep under wraps for 2 weeks! Can you guess? Lara is expecting our 2nd grand child on August 28th!!!!! Charlie told us 2 weeks ago but 
Lara wanted to tell my sister Karen face to face and that was yesterday:) Coincidently that is also my son Dominic's birthday. Lara is keeping very well and Charlie is looking forward to a brother although we don't know the sex!

Back to craft and this weeks challenge over at Less is More:

this week we have chosen wonderful  the Spring colours of 

We would like you try to keep to just these two colours, but the use of neutral shades may be included if necessary.

I was quite pleased with my card although the colours don't seem true. It is a really nice yellow IRL!

The topper is an Imagination Crafts decoupage stamp that I cut around a few areas of the leaves and on the other side used a ball tool to add some texture and shadow. I embossed the green base and cut around one of the stems so that I could insert the topper. The sentiment is a SeeDee one.

Tonight is one of my Rock Choir friends 40th birthday and I was asked to make a card from all of us as well as the one I had made from me:

I used Craft Artist and some die cuts to create this card:

and this is a box card that I made using Craftwork Cards papers and a feather die and stamp

Off to Rock Choir soon and I'd just like to welcome Asha who is a new follower to my blog, thank you:)

It's always so nice to welcome new family members. My sister is expecting a boy in the beginning of August, he will be my fifth nephew, I've got no nieces, and no brothers! So one generation of only girls, the next only boys...
Beautiful cards and I'd love a taste of that chocolate cake!

Many congratulations Val and how exciting for you all.... Karen said Charlie wants a brother to share his toys lovely. But I dont think they realise his new brother or sister wont be able to 'play' for quite a long time...
Beautiful cards and Charlie's cake looks so yummy...
