Today is my first day back in may craft room after a couple of weeks spent to-ing and fro-ing between here and Bath on granny duties. 
Later today we are going to meet some friends for lunch whom we met on a cruise some time ago (I don't remember exactly how long ago it was). I dressed in the clothes that I will be wearing when we go out and so I didn't want to attempt anything messy in my card making this morning. Hence die-cutting and dry embossing.
I wrote the word 'baby' on my Silhouette, welded the letters and offset them before cutting out in pink for the background and white for the word itself. The heart shaped balloon from Paper Smooches was added to the card on dimensional pads and the string was cut with a thread die from Memory Box.
I decided to add a little twinkle to the pink parts of the card with some Glamour Dust.
I am adding it to the challenges at Addicted to stamps and More - Clean and Simple
AAA Cards - Dry Embossing
Just Us Girls - Photo Inspiration
Dies R Us   Challenge # 118 -Anything Goes - (Paper Smooches & Memory Box Dies )

Each Thursday I look after my youngest grandchild Cleo and I have started taking her to Baby Ballet classes! She loves it! Here she is ready for her class, She doesn't have baggy Nora Batty tights on, they are leggings which she wore over her ballet socks to get to the class...  it was a little chilly that day! Does the expression 'Good toes, Naughty toes' bring back any memories for any of you?


  1. OMG this card is just ADORABLE ... love the simple yet striking design! Thanks so much for playing in our ‘Anything Goes using dies from companies carried at the DRU Store’ challenge at Dies R Us. Good Luck and please come back again soon!

    P.S. Little Cleo is ADORABLE and how sweet of you to get her involved in ballet. I started when I was 3 years old and took lessons until I married. Then my sister & I went back to dancing together again as adults until our grandchildren were born. Thanks for fond memories! Good Luck to Cleo!
