Update Xmas and Baby Boy Card

Over the past two weeks I have been working on creating several xmas card orders. Here are the first selection. Each time I make one, I make one for myself also. Therefore I have completed four card orders and four of my own. So getting there slowly. Here is a photo taken
on my beach hut work top, as you can see the sun was glorious today and the grass looked so inviting. I did venture out and decided to attack two very large weeds in our lovely raised bed. If I had left them there much longer I would have been able to see the flowers from my upstairs beach hut window. I have also shown a close up of one of the red versions and its inside. Papers are from craft creations I believe, I purchased these and many more lovely xmas 12 x 12 papers from the hobby house, along with some of the ribbons and flowers. The little gold bells from Boys, an amazing place to shop for crafty bits. Some of the other ribbon from the Range in Scunthorpe.
This image although a little blurry (sorry) is of a stamp that my husband Matt ordered for me off ebay. It is a black and white silloette of my favourite flower, a lilly and it says "Handmade by Downrightcrafty" It is so ace, I love him to bits for all the support he gives me.

He has been out fishing today in a match and caught an amazing size fish, however he still did not win, which is a huge shame as I think through all his determination he deserves too. He got a lovely sun tan on his face again. Men they never remember the sun cream, fishing is far more important.

Anyway whilst he was fishing I cleared the housework, however still have the ironing to do. (and last weeks oops) and then rushed up to the beach hut and created a little baby boy card,

a friend's little one is due any day now. I will be making a little girl one tomorrow, as although they predict what you are going to have, I know a few that have been wrong. So I am going to be prepared. So here is the card.

Tomorrow I am going to get to cuddle a puppy, my friend is bringing her new addition to see me. Will have to take photo's to show you all, as they are always so cute and you never know it may inspire a layout.

Well hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather, for the time being. Thank you all for your recent lovely comments and thanks for looking.

You amaze me at how you can come up with all these cards Kate, and lovely they are too. Can't wait to see the puppy and hear if the prediction was correct.
