A Daisy weekend

We had a lovely Saturday afternoon looking after our darling Daisy while her Mummy and Daddy went to see the show "Wicked" in London followed by a meal.

I can't believe how quickly she is growing, she is no longer a "baby" and is now 14 months old and a real little girl. She walks everywhere holding your hands and although she has has really stable standing balance she has not quite worked out that she could actually take a few steps herself. I am sure it will not be long now before we are chasing her around. She loves to play and  I have a little basket of pretend food which entertains her (and me) for ages.
 Such a happy little soul

Daisy loves books and loves to be read to. My Hb and I decided to take a walk down to our local library and went to the children's section where Daisy was in her element. Despite all the books she could have chosen from she chose one she has herself...The Big hungry caterpillar and we sat and read it several times.

Hmm it must be here somewhere
and yes....we have sweet little pre walking shoes...

What a lovely day we had.

We are lucky that everyone is coming up again next weekend too to celebrate my Hb's birthday, what a treat for us all.

My card today has to be a cute one....I have made it and put it in my Etsy shop here as a Valentine's card but it would actually suit lots of occasions including birthdays, anniversaries etc.
I  used one of my sweet House Mouse stamps... this one is so cute. I  coloured it with my Promarkers and highlighted with Prismacolor pencils.
I  hand inked the backing paper with distress inks and added white embossing using the free heart stamp from current Craft Stampers magazine. The sentiment is a Clearly Besotted one.
Here are some close ups;

  3. Daisy is adorable and so glad she was able to stay with you. I had some rubber stamps sitting in a box to get rid of, including ink.

Hugs and have a great weekend!!!
