House Mouse meets copics Baby Boy Unusual Arrival Card

hello again

Yesterday tea time I answered our house phone to our dear friend Chris, nothing unusual there you may think, until he said that "she was in"  I asked if she had gone on her own and the silly fool said "no I drove her there."  I had meant had she gone into labour naturally, he had already lost the plot by then.  Channie had been in hospital most of the day, he said "he had come home to tidy up."  Two hours later, he called again and ........................

Owen Tony had arrived weighing 5lb 8oz and 4 weeks early.  

Hence had to push myself into the craft room as soon as I came home this evening to create something special for a lovely family.  I bet Kyle cannot wait to see his new little brother.        

Congratulations to the young family ..............

Today whilst in one of those meetings that you have done everything you need to do, and have nothing left to do but cannot leave.  I checked my phones that were on silent and had missed a call on my personal mobile.  However, the kind person had left me a text message.  The message informed me that I had been picked as the winner of the lovely prize on Simon Says Stamp - The Shabby Chic Challenge.  My instant response was "never" of which the reply was "laughs yep", unable to get a signal for sometime, really did not believe it.  But knew the person would not wind me up.  

Don't you just hate it when you cannot go mobile blogging..........................and that you can't get home from work quick enough to check it out.  

Don't you also hate it when you forget to turn off your phone at the right times and have to whisper down the phone (no that was not me.................) but whilst trying to call the person concerned to tell her I had actually seen it - she whispers really well.  I would assume she has done that many times and bet she went bright red as everyone looked at her :)))    well I was so excited to call her and apologise for not answering her calls, you can't blame me......................

Any way before I bore you all here is the little creation for Owen Tony and his new family.  No challenges on this one as wanted it to come from the heart.....................

Well my husband Matt, was searching for sentiments for this card and found this lovely poem, there were several crafty offerings on this site verses4cards  this one imparticular caught my eye, I will leave you contemplating this one whilst I go searching on Simon Says Stamps to spend my winning voucher. Hugs Kate xx

She learned to stamp on Monday
her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner....
so away out we went to dine.

She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
she says they are a must....
they really are quite lovely
but there was no time to dust.

On Wednesday it was birthday cards
she claims that chalking's fun
shading, blending and water-colouring
but the laundry wasn't done.

Her card swap was on Thursday
she had to use green, blue and red,
it was obvious she was really engrossed
when she failed to make the bed.

It was Shaker cards on Friday
using techniques that she just adores,
what a pity she then failed to notice
the crumbs dropped all over the floors.

I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
my wife can stamp her hours away
and the house will still be neat.

Well, already it is Sunday
and my forehead's feeling damp
cos I've cursed, and raved and ranted
for the Maid has learned to stamp!!
