Love You Bunches

My first full day of babysitting our 1 year old grandson. I arranged to pick him up part way between here and where I go to craft as it is easier for both my DIL and I. She can then go a more direct way to get to her workplace. That makes me over 30 mins early for craft, but we just sat in the car and played peek-a-boo in the sun visor mirror.  He was really good, played with a couple of soft toys while he sat in the pusher and then dropped off to sleep for about an hour. He woke up as I put him back into the car.  We called in to buy a few groceries and then came back here for some lunch.  My hubby came home mid afternoon as he got a bit of time off and he took him for a walk with the pusher. "Papa" definitely loves his grandson!!!
I put him into our bed for another sleep and woke him up just after 5 p.m. so he would be ready to go home with his Mum about 5.30 p.m. She was a bit late so didn't leave till nearly 6 p.m.
He was no trouble at all. Friday I will have both him and one of his sisters. She has started Kindy 3 days a week and I will have her the other two.
I had good intentions of getting my card done earlier in the evening and LOL, I did have most of it done. I got wrapped up in watching some tv and sitting in the family room with the wood fire crackling away.
Well I really must get on and share my card before hubby wakes up like he did last night and finds me still beavering away on the computer at 2 a.m. - He is not impressed with my owl like existence!!!
Here is what I made tonight:

front of card ( scan is slightly fuzzy on one side - probably due to the flowers being higher)
 inside of card
SU Brocade Blue card stock for base card
SU Kiwi Kiss
Digi from Pollycraft called "Love You Bunches"
Nestie Die -  Label Twenty Two
Copic Markers
DP from 6x6 paper pad Amy Tangerine - sketchbook by Amercan Crafts
EK Success punches - small oval, large oval and scalloped oval
Flowers - handmade with scraps of Brocade Blue card stock
Leaves - Fiskars punch I think.
SU Pink Passion ink
