It's Keryn's turn today

It's DCM Friday and this time it's Keryn's turn to set the challenge. Now, A relative of our Keryn is expecting twins in September, so with multiple births in mind she challenged us to make cards to congratulate and welcome twins, triplets or more...
There are some fantastic cards from the Design Team, so please check out our blog

I quite like making baby cards but I'm not very happy with this one, it's ok but that's all. I got the baby bootees die a few weeks ago and haven't used it yet so decded that this was a good chance to give it a test run. Sometimes combining two tasks into one card doesn't really work as well as you'd hoped, does it? And I think this was the case here. Maybe if I get some time I'll have another go as I'm sure I can do better than this.


I've been busy this week with other crafty stuff, most of which I can't show at the moment unfortunately. The card above is one I can show, it was made for my SIL & BIL. who finally moved into their new house this week. How come the whole selling and buying of houses is such a long, traumatic affair? This time last year we were almost homeless because everything was gong wrong with the purchase of this house and we'd already sold our old one and had to move out. Not a good situation! The thought of having to go through it all again still makes me shudder.

The litle B&W photo is a sneak peek at one of my "can't show" projects!

Post has just come with the latest copy of the US Papercrafts magazine - goodoh, I'll look at that later. There was also a pack of Twinkling H2Os-alikes courtesy of the lovely, wonderful Joanne from Scrapstars Forum who kindly braved the Metro Centre this week and bought packs of these from The Works for a few of us then kindly sent them out to us. What a star! Thanks Joanne - they look great - 12 gorgeous pots of colour for £2.99

Right, that's me for now.
Cappuccino time I think

The orange is great.
Fab cards.
I won't be doing this challenge.
I am going away for the weekend, which is one reason but the main reason is my colleague Nick reads my blog daily & last week his wife Stacey lost there triplets. she lost a baby last year too. I want no reference to babies on the blog, to save his feelings!!
when I get back I might do a card of pairs but he is pretty cut up right now.
