Hello Archie!

Meet little Archie! He already has a new home to go to when he's more grown up and I know he'll be very well looked after and loved.
This is the princess of the family. She's slightly smaller than her brothers and is a very quiet little girl, at this stage. I hope she develops more of her mother's personality.

This is Archie's brother. I will admit he's a little complainer. We have learnt to ignore his cries like his mother has. When he wimpers, Khloee gives me a look as if to say "He's fed and warm/cool, so all is well. I need some time away from the kids." As a mother, this is a familiar scenario...don't you think so too?

Another Card

I made this card for my friend Joy. I have used the same techniques as with Martin's card. If you look closely at the background, you will see that I've used a doiley stamp dusted with perfect pearls. Making a card for Joy is a challenge because she makes the most gorgeous cards.

OMG....He's 50!

Yep this morning I woke to find I was married to a 50 year old...bit scary! (Don't let on that I said that please!)

Here's the birthday boy...

His cake contained a little surprise. All in all, it was very colourful and YUMMO!!!!

I had fun playing with inks, stamps, and perfect pearls to make Martin's card. Don't you love the result? He does and that's what important.

I also have another card to share with you, but not just yet.......

I am constantly reminded at how slack a blogger I have become! (Thanks Joy!)

So here is our March to date:

A couple of weeks ago I celebrated my birthday...yep I'm NOT telling you how many years but suffice to say that next year I will reach a significant milestone. Martin and Nathan made me a cake covered with hot pink icing. Thank goodness there were only 6 candles...more than enough!
On Wednesday (16th) our little Khloee dog had 3 puppies!! I was sooooo excited when the first one was born 'cos it was a girl!!! Then next one arrived quickly after and it was a boy. Several hours laster the third pup arrived...another boy. As with Khloee's first litter we have 3 pups with different length tails.The little female has a long tail and then, the boys' are progressively shorter. I love the second photo where Miss K has her little leg around one of the cute.
Today my niece celebrates her 19th birthday. Happy birthday Amy! Enjoy your birthday lunch and don't forget a photo!
It's the month for birthdays as Martin celebrates his 50th this Tuesday! Gotta make a card this weekend.
My nephew celebrates his birthday in early April. I've made this little Gift card holder to put his gift in. Joy Smith designed this and it's so easy to make. I chose the belt to go around it to look just like one...appropriate for a teenage boy don't you think? Martin commented "You know he'll just take out the gift card and throw the rest away don't you!" Men!
March is turning into a wet month for us. I didn't get up to our school for the Home Tutor workshop because of rain and creeks flooding. We were able to make it up for the swimming carnival though. More rain this week has kept everyone at home. I hope it's a dry Easter as we have plans.
