Baby blue

Isn't it lovely to have to make a baby card?! Seems to be coming into baby season so I'll be using this Bitty Baby Blessings set quite a bit - it's actually the first time I've used it! I love that it's so great for paper piecing:

I'm madly rushing around trying to get sorted and packed before going on holiday first thing Tuesday morning - I'm wrestling between this huge pile of ironing that needs to be done, and an empty suitcase that needs to be filled and the beautiful sunshine outside (and some new PTI stamps that haven't received as much love as they should have too)

Thanks for stopping by - don't forget to check back tomorrow for the draw of our blog candy and a new challenge!

another lovely card, what a dilema, crafting / ironing. Hmm I know which one I'd pick an the crumpled look is quite in!


ps - going to miss your blogging whilst you're on your jollies

Can you drag the ironing board outside, to kill two birds with one stone?!

I am 45, but I STILL miss the long summer days that I used to have while I was in school! I am sure I complained of being bored at some time, but I do not recall ever being bored!

Adorable card Kate

I hope you are enjoying the sunshine - ironing can always wait and there are lightbulbs to make evening crafting possible.

If we dont catch up before have a wonderful holiday
