Welcome Tommy

Now after that pretty dismal post - I have a pretty cool card to share with you.

My friend from work - well she left to travel around Oz in a Yacht with her new hubbie and they did Fiji and travelled home to NZ and sailed around the Pacific - for almost two years!

So she came back of course very pregnant and delivered a little boy 11 days ago. Young Tommy came into work and visited with me yesterday - just when I needed some cheering up. So as you do - I went shopping and brought a few little pressies for him. Below is the card I made for him - I hope you like it! I was quite proud of it.

As I am sharing this awesome card with you all.. I thought I would enter it into a couple of challenges!
The images are from Meljen's design - so of course I have to enter their Challenge: Blasting to the past - using the a Meljen's design on your first card
Little Miss Muffet - Using Multiple images (ABC's and the stork are different images)
and finally
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Challenge #125 ABC's (Apricot/peach (check), Bling (check - yes apart from the obvious I used spica on the ABC's and the stars), Cute (check)) lol..

Righto so now I've posted and entered challenges.. Back to homework for my copic class!

I hope you all have a better week than I have had and may the next week be brighter still.

Ohhhh and guess who taught herself how to feather the edges of her pictures...LOL

Thanks for looking and have a great night.

Sad days

Sorry I've been a bit absent, but we have some family stuff happening and you know the drill - we all need to put our families first! as you rarely get second chances! I was out reading blogs today at work (shh don't tell anyone!) and i noticed that on a blog (can't for the life of me remembers who's it was) they were talking about some sad news a friend of theirs had with the loss of a brother - this person went to their friends brothers funeral to help support their friend on most possibly one of the worst days of their life.
I just wanted to say as a direct quote - LOVE is a doing word, so do something with it! say it to those that don't say it regularly. there was some other really profound stuff, but i cant remember it! All i can say is live life to the fullest!'

I will update this post tomorrow when I can grab the link from work and you can all read it for yourself.

Thanks for reading.
