Saturday 4 July 2020


Good morning, I will definitely be smiling today as I'm expecting my son to visit with my 2 youngest granddaughters- they're allowed to come indoors from today which will please Emily (6) as she'll be able to access all of the toys not just the ones I put in the garden for her! It will also please my son- visiting in the garden is all very well but not a lot of fun if it's raining or the ground is too wet to put the baby down on- not a lot of fun trying to hold a lively wriggling not-quite- one-year -old little girl in your arms for any length of time.
I have 2 cards to share today, this one is for our July Challenge at Crafty Calendar sponsored by the fabulous 

Crafty Ribbons
The theme is a simple one-Add a Ribbon.
I used a cute stamp that I ought online recently- it was a sale bargain and I couldn't resist. I stamped it onto a die cut kraft tag and coloured- with pencils for a change! I doodled around the edge with a white gel pen and stamped and embossed the sentiment. I used a very old punch for the flowers and added some buttons. The pretty ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for stopping by,

Love the card, always nice to see some colouring done on Kraft, this is fab Chris.
I hope you enjoy your grandchildren today, oh for a hug and a sit down with them all, yesterday I did get to see them and the birthday boy was so excited but awful when they couldn't even get out of the car as the heavens were opening all day, but at least i got to see them, make the best of it and pray by the time my lockdown in August comes I can see them

Hope you had a great visit!! I had my two Grandsons over yesterday and today I went to visit my other two grandsons next door!! Loved it. Your card is gorgeous. I haven't tried colouring on kraft for a long time, probably cause I was soooo bad at it first time round.
