Happy New Year.... I know it's the 4th... but it's been a busy time since Christmas.
We went off camping on the 26th. It was awesome. Apart from me getting sick on the first day - right as we got there.... not sure if it was something I ate for lunch or the windy roads getting there. Whatever, I ended up watching the others putting up the tent. Then as soon as the lilo bed was pumped up, the went to sleep. Next day better and then all good. It was a lovely spot. A new camping ground for us. It was based next to the an estuary which was great for the little one. When the tide was in it was not too deep and he had a ball splashing around. We stayed for 5 nights, coming home on Sunday afternoon. It was getting a bit noisy at nights and we had trouble getting him to sleep.
The family is still here till Sunday afternoon, so I've been spending as much time with them as I can. Archie is at such a fun age. So impressionable. He is a little parrot - tries to say everything he hears.
I have managed to get a few cards made.
First up is a card my daughter asked me to make for her friend's little girl who is one towards the end of the month.
I used patterned paper from Craft Creations for my card. It is just adorable. I used a Kaisercraft number die with some freebie sentiments. I added some of the paper onto the envelope.
I've also done a couple of cards as an order - birthday cards using a Tim Holtz Poinsettia die and my Heartfelt Creations 3D flower mold.
Just changed up the colours on the Catherine Pooler plaid stamp and the Elizabeth Crafts birthday die.
Today is a bit of a sad day for us.... it is Mum's Birthday. All these firsts are hard.... had a good talk with Dad this morning. As he said.... the Memories are still there.
So I'll finish with a few Archie photos
Wishing you all a very prosperous new year and lots of crafting time in 2018
