Step by Step - Lydia Goes Shopping

Good morning and happy Thursday to all...It is my turn to do the Step by Step, for Little Claire's Digi -which is quite apt today, as I will be meeting my Grand-daughter Sinead, who was 17 yesterday, for some birthday shopping and lunch.  It has been a very busy 2 weeks, my friend, and I hope you bear with me again..Kenny has some paternity leave so he, Hayley and little Jack, are visiting quite frequently, so have really had to use the spare time to catch up on my DT work.

I decided to make my 1st Pop Up card for my Step by Step this time,

Using - Lydia Goes Shopping (Free Digi)

I found that the Dinkie paper pads were perfect for using with the Pop Up Cards.

I decorated the Pop-Up card with Dinkies Papers - adding a border Using Tattered Lace - Kensington Border. I then coloured in Lydia Goes Shopping with Promarkers, using Soft Lime, Lemon and Canary for the Yellows, Denim Blue and Frosted Blue for the Blues, Satin and Blush for Skin, Tan and Tawny Owl for Hair...I added a touch of Gold Glitter Pen, to the Heart on the bag and the flower centre on the other bag.

I then die cut some fashion style images.

Here is the complete Card:-

Side View

Hope you like my wee Step by Step, and find some inspiration.  Thank you for reading.

Christmas in July and Baby Jack

Afternoon my friends, a little late with this post.  My life has been a whirlwind since last Sunday. Spent most of the week at ERI, with Kenny and Hayley, she was in a slow off and on labour, but at 2 cm kept getting sent home, on Thursday morning, we were back in the early hours, and they were determined to send her home again, without a check!  It turned out she was at 4 cm and headed then to the Labour Ward, where she gave birth to Jack Alexander Brian Watson at 12.15pm, he came in at a healthy 8lb 5oz, after being told on Monday that he was just a 6lb ish mark...Jack was not due until the 25th so a very early and welcome addition to our family.

Today we have a new challenge starting at:-

Here is my card:-

Using - Say it with Words

I made this card weeks ago and have been singing this song since then, mind you the weather, makes me also think it beginning to look a lot like Christmas, LOL.

I would like to leave you with a picture of Baby Jack our 11th and hopefully final grandchild for a wee while anyway, LOL...

I was given the honour of being there, when this little bundle came into the world and was most surprised with his head of hair..our family the babies are bald, until about 3 years of age..LOL.

I am sure I will get to your blogs this week, did try doing some on Saturday night, but was interrupted with a visit from this wee and hugs to you all.
