Mother's Day hugs

Hello my lovely blog chums......Hope  you've been having a great weekend. If you are a Mum, hope you have been enjoying the day. The contents of the Amazon parcel turned out to be a fab set of headphones from my lovely Megan, as  she knows I enjoy a bit of box set binging on my tablet. Hubby has given me some money to get myself some new jeans and also instructed me this morning to "treat yourself to a couple of your colouring in pictures" after further probing it turned out he meant Digi stamps, lol. Well he certainly didn't have to tell me  twice, as I had recently stumbled upon some completely yummy Lee Holland images, now available on Etsy.....before long, a click turned into a bit of printing, then out came the ProMarkers, and well, ta-daaa

She really is a little treat to colour! I have used limetree crafts card with this, also a cheery Lynn border die. Little Claire's mini sentiment and a bit of card candi.

I would like to enter:
crafty sentiments anything goes
passion for promarker challenge only girls allowed

That's all for  tonight, got very emotional watching the last episode of Call the Midwife, and am ready for bed now.
I will be back with another DT card later in the week, but will say Cheerio for now.

As I was saying, winter is still very much with us in Kent, we have had, by our standards, heavy snow for the past couple of days and this was my back garden at 7am this morning
I ventured out and measured 18cms on our picnic table. I drove to work yesterday morning, as the roads were not too bad when I left home but after about 2hrs of more heavy snow, I bailed out and had a really scary drive to go in today, so planning to wrap up and go on foot. 
One of our family REALLY likes the snoww

Hello....and Happy Wednesday!

Hello my lovely blog chums, hope that post finds you well!

This is pretty much me playing catch up today. So you will know that hubby and I went on a little jaunt, to visit his daughter and her family in  Scotland and to meet our new baby grandson. Well, we had a smashing time and fell completely in love this little fellow.
So now, I am very excited and proud to introduce you all to
Alex Ewan Alistair
born 6th February and weighed in at 8lb 3oz

The day after returning home we had to take our Daisy (our Jack Russell X Shih Tzu) to the vet for, what turned out to be quite a big operation. She had to have a unilateral mastectomy. For a little dog, she has quite some stitching there and did need a little extra care and attention over the weekend. She is recovering well though. So before I knew it, Monday had rolled around again, I was back to work and unfortunately not a bit of blogging had happened!!!!

So, I have two DT cards to share today..........

First up, is sweet sketch wednesday

Hello my lovely blog chums and Happy February! 
Hope this post finds you fine and well, and having a good week so far. Had a trip to the cinema with the hubby, this week, to see "Darkest Hour". Thought Gary Oldman was fantastic as Winston Churchill and the film, itself, was a terrific watch. As a child of the 70's myself, I had no idea how close we actually were to invasion. Anyway, highly recommend the film.

So, great news - its time for a new sketch and challenge with 

we have another fab sketch, which we hope will inspire you
Our lovely sponsors for this challenge are
