Old book pages.
Evening peeps!!!!!

I have had a wonderful day with my hubby today. He had the day off so we went out for breakfast and then spent the rest of the day at home, he pootled around on his big boy pooter and I had a little bit of a make!!!

The challenge I am entering with Violet are....
Bunny Zoe's challenge blog is Lace it Up - the lace is pink and layered at the bottom.
.Craft your passion challenge blogs- a card for all occasions.

Violet is coloured in with darker skin tones as this little card will hopefully be going in the post to my little sister in the seychelles. Both my little sisters and my step mum are dark skinned so I was desperate to have a go with the darker brown promarkers. I think I did OK for a first go, she even has little rosy cheeks too. What do you think peeps? Did I do OK? here is a piccy of my little sis, Colette. 
She is 16 now! wow, where did those years go and she is my god daughter too. She looks so grown up and beautiful in this picture, its one of my favourites (...though she might cyber bop me for blogging her!!! hey, thats what big sisters are for right??!!!)

So thats me for tonight. Little Mo has been a little off it tonight so I am hoping now he has settled down to sleep he is OK through the night.

Huge hugs Lou xxx
