Catching Worms

Welcome again to my blog today, if you are visiting, I hope you have found my blog interesting, to the regular followers, thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments.
I would also like to welcome a couple of new followers, Beth, Rachel and Debeez. Hope you enjoy visiting my blog.
My little granddaughter went home about 1 p.m. today. My DIL and our little grandson came to pick her up. The elder granddaughter was staying with her other Mama and was being picked up after they left here. The little one was full of smiles, he is growing up quickly, 9 months now and crawling around and standing up with the aid of the lounge etc.
When they left, I quickly packed up my Cuttlebug and some dies and embossing folders and a trolley with card and all the other paraphanalia needed for cardmaking and headed for Judy's house. All of the girls finished their boxes after we downloaded the instructions (I left them home!! I've taught the secret box to 3 different lots of ladies) I should have known the measurements off by heart, LOL.
We looked through some beading books to see if there was anything we wanted to make and decided on a project to make in 2 weeks time. Next week Judy is interstate for a wedding? and then back home for one of her daughter's 30th birthdays so no craft next Saturday.
I rushed home stopping on the way back to get a cooked chicken. I quickly broke it up and made a salad platter and my OH and I went out to our daughter's boyfriend's grandma's 80th birthday party (gee that was a mouthful)
We came home late and I got stuck into making a card, I did scan the one I made for her but for some reason it cut off the sides of the card in the pic. I may put it at the end of the post. It was a fairly quick and simple card as I threw it together at the last minute in between peeling and chopping the carrot for the platter.

The base card is made with SU Poppy Parade, the DP is from a 12 x 12 pack by DCWV called: The Sweet Stack. A piece of the Poppy Parade across the middle and then I also used a piece of SU Certainly Celery and then printed this cute image from Phindy's onto white card and coloured with Copic Markers, this whole piece was distressed on the edges and then ink distressed as well. I also ink distressed the basecard edges. I popped the image piece up with foam dots.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

todays card

this was the card I made for George's Grandma.

It was a black basecard (the scan has cut the edges off!) I used a piece of pink and cut a circle out with a die and then put it through an embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment onto white card and used a scallop punch to cut it. I then adhered it inside the cutout section and added 3 flowers and the number 80 which I cut using an alphabet/number die set.

Well, I hope you are all enjoying your weekends,
Take Care
