Love is Sweet...

Today was spent at home with our two granddaughters and then my DIL brought the 6 1/2 month old over as well for me to babysit while she went out with friends for a meal and a movie. He was very well behaved, ate his lunch, had a play and then a sleep. Woke up just over an hour before she came back and had another play. I had formula here just in case he was desperate for a feed, but it worked out well and she fed him before going home. The girls are staying an extra night so I can take them to see "Puss in Boots" tomorrow.
Our youngest son has flown over to Sydney tonight as he is there for a two day training course of some new motorbike. He rang late tonight to tell us he had arrived safely and was staying in a 5 star hotel all paid for by work. He went on his own, but the other people involved are also staying at the same hotel, so they meet for breakfast and all travel together, which is great, he doesn't have to worry too much about how to get there!
Well better get this card scanned and attached so I can get this posted.
I found this free digi through Free Digital Stamps (link on sidebar) it is by Meljens and is called Love is Sweet.You can find them here at the Digital Stamp Shop. I printed it off and then cut it out with the reverse wonky triangle die from Nestabilities. Cut a larger one in red and after colouring with Copic Markers adhered together. The basecard is SU Tempting Turquoise cardstock, a recent purchase and I have put another layer of the red card (from stash) and then the heart DP - also from stash. I added a strip of red ribbon with little white hearts on it to finish it off (also new). I thought this would make a great Valentine's card or even maybe an engagement or modern wedding card.
I am going to enter this into Make It Monday #71 - Anything Goes
and also Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything goes - with the option of a new theme, so it could be a new baby, a new beginning or just something new from your stash
I've used cardstock and ribbon as my new something!
No blog hopping tonight as I need to be awake enough to sit through the movie tomorrow with the grandies!, LOL.
