Well, we're in

The house is full to overflowing, and we're gradually working on getting things put away, but it's a slow job. I took an hour last night, and this morning while DH was catching up on much-needed sleep to make a few cards. My brother's birthday is on Monday and this will be late, but hey. His present will be even later because I'm still waiting for a copyright request to be replied to before I get his gift ordered. He should be used to this after 7 years of presents at all weird times.

We're also having a glut of babies being born around this time too. Liz and Colin welcomed Anna Mairi just 3 hours before my own birthday, and Fran and Dave are the proud new parents of Alice Hannah. My fellow alto in the choir, Ruth, has just become a second-time granny to Lucy Alice, and Diann and Andy are expecting their first boy any day now.

These cards are lifted straight from Chrissie at Less Is More where this week's challenge is a shaped card. If I had had more time and less guilt at playing, I would have used more imagination, but hey, less is more, right? ;-) Forgive me Chrissie!

It's just so good to be back blogging and crafting a little again. Having said that, we still have a LONG way to go, so I wont be indulging again for a while. Or not until that baby boy appears, anyway!

Have a great weekend everyone!
