Baby love

This card should hopefully be winging it's way to Bondi beach (honestly they live about 2 minutes away from the beach) remind me to go and get myself invited over there as soon as possible, maybe for babysitting duties;D As mentioned a few days ago this is for sweet baby Isla who was born last week to Sarah and my cousin Paul.

To my husbands dismay and repeated eye rolling antics I have picked up a little bargain at my local haberdashers where I spotted some old cloth in a box which turned out to be DMC evenweave linen (which can be really expensive) for 10p per little square - well I couldn't leave it there for that - could I? for a new venture that I'm hoping will combine with my love of paper crafts. It will all be revealed next week (if I haven't chucked it all in the bin from sheer frustration lol).

Have a great weekend & see you Monday xx

This is lovely Emma.....looking forward to seeing what you do with the linen!!

After seeing your fab designs where you stamped on twill tape, I just had to get some, so that's one thing that's on my 'to do' list!!

Oh so sweet, can't wait to see what you've got tucked up your sleeve, so to speak, with the linen!

I think you should hand-deliver this card, just to make sure it gets there!

Thanks for all your really lovely messages on my blog too!
