Sketch n Stash......

Morning peeps hope you are well, I'm off to an area meeting today and after only get three hours sleep on Saturday night and not having a Nana nap on Sunday I will probabaly be nodding off at the meeting,
the reason for very little sleep is.....I had both my Grandsons for a sleepover on Saturday night, feels strange still saying Grandsons, Zachary only goes four hours inbetween feeds so after a midnight one and then a 4.00am one I didn't get very much zzzzzzz's. It was lovely cuddling both of them and Zachary is looking around and smiling at people now......awwww so darn sweet, and when Ethan cuddled up as well and told me "I really love you Nana" I could have cried.

Better get onto this weeks challenge at Sketch n Stash, this week we are being sponsered by Crafty Individuals, one lucky person gets to win these goodies

The optional theme this week is Die Cuts

For my card I have used the new musical stamps CI 366 from Crafty Individuals for the main part as well as the music sheet stamp CI 194 to create the background paper behind the main images. I have also used a page from the Shades of Summer paper pad. The distress inks used are Peacock Feathers, Broken China, Vintage Photo and Dusty Concord and then used Stormy Sky to stamp the sheep music. The scroll dies are from Marianne Dies. Flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.

Wild Orchid Crafts....anything goes
Vintage Stamping....vintage

your card is so wonderful, Daniele! Loving the vintage touch of it!
Aw bless, Ethan is so sweet! The story just reminded me of my time in Ireland as an Au-Pair. Ross, the little boy, used to call me Mum and told me at least once a week how much he loved me, sooo sweet. When I was back in Switzerland, my "Irish Mum" called me and told me that she had to quit her work because Ross was calling her "Alex" lol!!
