2 Months!!

Oh my! I have just realised it has been two months since I blogged. I am such a bad blogger, I apologise.

Firstly thank you all for your good wishes, we had an amazing wedding - the sun shone, and the whole day was fab. Wanna see a couple of pics?????

Baby Peanut is also doing well - quite scary to think that 4th Feb is d-day it seems so close. Baby J is so excited and keeps kissing my tummy and going ahhhh baby. Although I did ask him what he wanted Baby to be called and he said "cheeky Trouble" hmmmmmmm. Not too sure on his choice, but we do know that this one is A GIRL!!!!!

Right anyhow, its friday so you know what that means? Yep its Dare Day. Thanks so much to the other guys on the team for letting me be so lax with the dares lately. This week was Kathy's turn to dare and she chose "ANIMAL"

The theme is ANIMAL and you can use anything that's animal inspired (not bugs, birds or butterflies though!), so you could maybe use animal die cuts, animal prints on paper or fabric, or maybe animal "words" grrrrr
How about a card in the shape of a tiger, elephant or monkey?
Now, there's a challenge for you

I had no idea what I was going to do until I was in my local craft shop and I saw this super cute animal paper and I knew it had to be used. I started by making a square card blank from white ribbed cardstock. I then cut a smaller square of the fabby Circus Animals glittery paper from the Nana's Kids range from DCWV. i inked it round the edge and stuck it to the card. I also used the same paper to cut roughly round one of the lions on the page and stuck him on a piece of ribbed white cardstock with inked edges. Again with the white cardstock I cut and inked a long rectangle and used brilliant Making Memories Card Saying rub-ons to add the Happy birthday greeting. Then I attached the strip and the lion square with foam pads.

I am actually quite pleased with this one, I think the animals are soo cute. They do a stack of the Nana's Kids paper and its all glittery and great, so might have to purchase.

Dont forget to head on over to the DCM blog and see some of the sweet and lovable animals that the rest of the team have used.

See ya all later xx
