The Young Ones

Good Morning Everyone,

Why is it than on a school day morning I have to drag my children out of bed but on a Saturday and Sunday they are up at the crack of dawn??!!  My daughter got up at 6.15am today, when I told her it was too early, she said ' but the sky is blue and the sun's shining!'. . . .so we got up!

At least I got chance to do my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - The Young Ones, which I didn't have chance to do yesterday.

I've used my new stamp 'sweet thing'. I bought this one thinking it would be useful for cards for my daughters friends who are 4 and 5 years old so it fits this weeks challenge perfectly! I've coloured her with promarkers.

The background paper are from Val'n tine too from Nitwits and the Crafters Companion Strawberry Kisses CD. I have been a bit lazy as the papers were already on my desk, and I just had to use pink for a little girls card!! I really must get my room organised!
I've used a spellbinders edgeability die for the border and a joy!crafts die for the flowers.

It looks like it's going to be a lovely day here today so I might be able to get some work done in the garden. Hope it's nice where you are.

Have a good Sunday and thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Hi Lorraine, this is such a pretty card! Love the image, papers and layout.

I'm a bit like your kids; can't get up for school during the week (and I'm the teacher, lol!) but up at silly o'clock at the weekend!

Hi Lorraine, gorgeous card - love the image and papers are lovely. I remember when my son used to get us at the crack of dawn. Now he's a teenager you can't get him up!

Look forward to following your blog. Luv Trish x

Hi Lorraine, been through your blog and I love what you do, you like a lot of the same stamps/companies as I do and I really like your style. The flower die is delightful and I too have the edgeabilities but as yet haven't used them, you may just inspire me to give them a try now!! My son (who is now 26) used to be just the same as your daughter, me and my ex used to play paper/scissor/stone to see who got the lie-in!!
Have become a follower and will be checking you out regularly, hope you have a great time with us at I ♥ ProMarkers too, new friends are one of the best things about blogland.
