Anyway, onto the theme over at Allsorts. This week we want to see cards for a child.....easy peasy right? A friend of mine is due her little man any day now so decided to make this weeks card for his arrival:
Teddy and sentiment stamp by Stampin Up, papers been in the scrap drawer for ages, can't for the life of me remember where they came from. Safety pins and little feet are from stash.
Late with my card today as we were on Lily's birthday treat..........we took her and two of her friends to the cinema to see UP in 3d (fabulous film) and then lunch at Burger King. This was instead of a party with 20 odd screaming hyper kids so was much more enjoyable!!!

This week at Allsorts the theme is to use "kraft" in your creations. This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Pink Petticoat and as part of the DT we were sent the Big Fella kit to use. The prize this week is a free download and if you use a Pink Petticoat download to make your entry you will be entered twice!
I have used the birthday cake download and three of the modern papers from the kit. I've used brown paper for a layer as I don't have any kraft card left, its been embossed with the Argyll folder on the cuttlebug. Sentiment stamp is by Stampin Up as is the clear button (backed with brown paper thanks for the tip Kath), ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. The image is coloured with my usual PMs. This card will be winging its way to my little (ok he's not that little at 33!!) brother for his birthday next week :o)
Can't wait to see your creations this week and good luck in the prize draw

The kitchen has been a saga this week, delayed deliveries, nowhere to put anything and a house where nothing goes right combined to make it a nightmare!! The weekend was particularly stressful as Ian nearly electucuted himself rewiring some sockets (ohhhh men!). To be honest Ian isn't the most patient of men when it comes to jobs like this and he tends to lose the head a wee bit so the air was blue more than a few times when things weren't going his way!! Of course combined with my pregnancy hormones it has been a bit of a tearful weekend too!
But we finally have some base units fitted now and the hob and oven are fitted and connected so at least we are back to being able to cook lol Here's hoping this week is better with less tantrums lol

It is all go in the Panda household and Mr Panda is ripping out our kitchen to replace it so the place is like an absolute bomb site. Every time I look at it though I am just thinking of the finished look, we are changing the layout as well as the units so it is double messy as there are walls being torn down and a doorway being boarded up!
Sadly the crafty stuff has had to be packed away for the time being as we are storing lots of stuff in the living room for the time being........so if I am quiet you'll know why. I am relaxing the stresses by knitting though so I am still crafting in some form lol. I am halfway through a lovely cabled poncho for a Xmas present for one of the wee ones I look after. Then it will be time to do a wee cardi or two for the baby lol
have a faby day whatever you're doing girlies..............it's back to the pandemonium for me..............
