The boy makes an appearance

Yesterday while buying papers that I don't need :) I picked up some of the new Dream Street Simply Stated range...a stunning collection with lots of beige, black and white. The red is a Creative Cafe diecut, which I hated cutting into ...they are just so beautiful...but sometimes you just have to do it! The "r" and circle rubon are long term residents of my stash...but not anymore!


And this is my darling son....and boy, does he hate this photo! I guess it will teach him to smile for the camera when I ask him, hey? LOL. He specifically requested that I put a LO of him here on the blog, so wish granted! Black, red and white is so striking, huh?

I created a couple more cards for the shop today, and have also nearly finished my plum puddings block for "Christmas Belles" which I will photograph as soon as I get the chance. It is so good to be stitching again!

Riley is getting famous with LO's from you and from your sister both are great (Joe is over my shoulder and says LOL):D That apparently is meant to be a smiley face if you put your head on an angle. It's all the rage at the moment.Good he's left the room.
Can't wait to see the christmas puddings.
