Its been a while!!


Its been a while since I posted a card here,  my daughter is a teacher and she is on her summer holidays, she had planned a holiday of a lifetime this year and was visiting Australia!  Because of Covid it was all sadly cancelled so she had a staycation in Dorset with Mum and Dad.  Its been a lovely few weeks for us all and even our son came down for a week.  It was a little strange not being able to go out much but we did fit in some paddle boarding and lots of long walks plus a visit to our local restaurant, luckily the weather was good although its turned stormy over the past few days.  

She has now gone back to Surrey so I have found time to get back in the craft room to make a couple of new baby cards.  They are both very similar but with colour variations to suit a boy or girl.

The elephant stamp is from Heffy Doodles and the square dies are Simon Says.  The baby word is made using the small alphabet set from Altenew.

Very simple to make and this has helped me get back in the card making groove,  its strange without the family in the house and I am missing them.

I shall add these cards to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Oh so Cute".

Have a great weekend

Two super cute baby cards Sally. Very sad for your daughter to have her lifetime holiday ruined by the Pandemic. But happy for you that you got to spend some quality time with her and the rest of the family.
