Aloysius in the frame!

Good evening! Second post today, it's all or nothing with me! I started to make this card yesterday but was interrupted by the arrival of my gorgeous grandaughters who were 'sleeping over' at mine! There certainly isn't time to craft when they're around! - well that's not entirely true  - they love to craft, but as they're aged 3 and not-quite-6  they still need quite a bit of help. We made decorated egg princesses! I should have taken photos! By the time I'd cleared up the (considerable!) mess, fed them, bathed them, cleaned the bath crayons off the tiles,  read stories , given them their 'midnight feast' (well 8pm feast) brushed their teeth, read more stories, I was shattered! This morning I was greeted with " Oh, Nanny the numbers on your clock are six dot three three, what time is that?" and two small girls clambered into my bed...
Anyhow, back to the card, quick and simple using the gorgeous Aloysius from Indigo Blu, embossed panel matted onto kraft. Frame also diecut from kraft.
That's all from me, going to collapse in  front of the tv now!
Have a lovely evening

Hi Chris, that's such an elegant card - love the sepia tones and the image is too cute!

Ummm, I think you've just described my life there!! My daughter is 5 1/2 and I can see she must be very like your granddaughters - we've finally got her to sleep to 7ish (most mornings!!).

Sounds like my Ellie. I get called for when she wakes in our house, and have to go in with her! I get quizzed nowadays as to why I've changed my jammies for a vest and pants (I spill tea often!) or about where I've been (usually get away with saying was at the loo) I am then in her bed till morning. Luckily hubby is an early bird and ckmes for her when she chaps on the wall for him. I then slink back into my bed for another hour.

I love the bear on that card, it's a lovely image.
