What a week

Wow!!! I have so missed card making and blogging this week, feels as if I have been away for ages and I am sure there is lots to catch up with. I have spent the whole week to-ing and fro-ing between Margate and Canterbury, but have had a lovely time with Ben, Robert and Sam the dear GS, I thought getting the older boys from under Vikkis feet was the best help I could provide and the weather was brilliant so we went out everyday. My lovely new grand-daughter has had a name change we all loved Sienna but after spending a couple of days with her she just seemed to be a Lucy!!! so she has now been registered as Lucy Jacqueline Susan, she is doing well has put on 1.1/20zs over her birth weight, and the biggest blessing of all is she goes 6 hours at night between feeds. Will post some more pictures tomorrow. Thanks so much for all your lovely wishes I have passed them on to James and Vikki and they were overwhelmed with how many people sent such lovely comments.

I have not made a card this week, but this is my DT card for Just Magnolia Monthly Challenge that I should have posted last week. the Lovely Debby from Scrap Journey did a fabulous tutorial for us and I learnt loads from it, thanks so much Debby. This is how I coloured and cut the 3d elements for the card.

I have coloured Tilda with Copics (colours below), The fabulous papers are from Nanas Nursery from Bunny Zoes Craft.

I tried to get a good photo of the 3ding I am afraid this is the best I could do.

Here are the copics I used.

I hope to back to full time blogging tomorrow, thanks once again for all you wonderful comments, I am off to do a bit of blog hopping now, have a great weekend everyone.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
