Remember this card

Remember this card I made for Spyder's (Lyn's) challenge, well guess what I won!!!!
I have received a lovely image from Lyn and I had a chance to request a subject for Lyn to draw an image. I asked if she could draw a Christmas Penguin. Well she surpassed herself in drawing 2 fab images. So watch this space and I hope to have a card by the end of the week.

I may find it a little difficult to blog as often as I would like over the next while. My Dad has just be diagnosed with lung cancer and he is starting treatment next week, so I will be visiting hospital and taking care of him. I will try to visit everyone as soon as possible and also try to post cards as often as I can.

Finn is 1

Back from a lovely holiday in the Lake District. We had a good time albeit the weather deteriorated as the week went on, but it didn't keep us in.

It was our Grandson Finn's first birthday on Monday. I can't believe how fast this year has went in, only seems like yesterday he was born.

This is his birthday card, I used a Mo Manning image which is just perfect for him as he loves trains. I also used DCWV papers, Nesties, Promarkers, Martha Stewart punch and Sizzlets alphabet.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Stamp Something - Something to celebrate

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Autumn Birthdays
