Good Times

Hi there! Just a quick post tonight to say hi and to catch up with all my lovely blog friends. About a week ago I got to go and meet my friends new baby and have lots of cuddles. She was so cute and she was born slightly smaller than my big girl who was 7lb 8oz and when I held her she felt so tiny. I finished the bibs for her the night before and simply decorated a kraft gift bag I picked up at an art shop.
As you know I love to make cards and there are so many wonderful card makers out there to get inspiration from but there is one lady who I have been following for a long time and I love how she can mix colours together that I wouldn't have thought of and make them work beautifully. Her name is Dawn McVey and I am a huge fan so when she mentioned on her blog she was coming to visit Australia I was so excited. Later on she told us of her plans to visit the Gold Coast with a time to catch up with her for a coffee. The Gold Coast isn't too far from me and so I told my hubby I just had to catch up with her. After my nephew's baptism we headed to the coast and I got to meet Dawn and her husband Bart. She was so sweet and down to earth, she felt like a good friend you were catching up with for a coffee . I really had a wonderful time and met some other fellow blog ladies who were lovely to chat to as well.

It will probably be a little quiet around here for the next couple of weeks since the girls will be on holidays I'll take a little break but I hope to still stop by and say hi but if I don't have a safe and fun Easter with your family.

Talk to you soon.
