Back from me hols!

Hello all! Well it's back to reality for me, I got back Monday and haven't stopped washing and cleaning since! I had a great time in the UK, we visited Sussex and Kent and did some sightseeing, shopping, lots of eating and drinking, and I even managed to make a stop at the Glitter Pot and get a few goodies (some are destined for my up and coming blog candy). I haven't had a chance to use my new stuff yet apart from some Sizzix dies I got (one of them I used on my card for this week's Just Magnolia Challenge). Hopefully I'll get a chance to do a bit of crafting today!

This is my card for the Just Magnolia Challenge which is "Pink and Green", it's for my cousin and his wife who've just had a baby girl. Get this - my cousin's wife went to the loo, started her contractions and thought there was something wrong, she called my cousin who came and realised the baby was on it's way, so he rang the paramedics as he could see the baby's head. By the time they arrived, baby Heidi was born (delivered by my cousin at home). The paramedics took mum and baby to get checked over in hospital. All was fine and they were sent straight back home! Not bad going eh!

Well I've missed having a look at all your lovely creations so off to do a bit blog hopping! Toodle pip!
