Ever so sweet - SWIRLYDOOS

I can't get enough of the September kit of Swirlydoos. Just my colors and the embellishments are so cute.
We went to a restaurant on Thursday night and DD was so tired that she fell asleep right there in the restaurant. Usually, she stays up to 8pm, but this night, the only night we go out, she decided she was too tired... No worries, we had fun, she got her sleep and no harm done. (Friday she did not have kindergarten classes)

The LO is based on a sketch by Liz Qualman. Can't get enough of her great work! So inspiring, so easy to follow!

Here is a close up of the embellies. I made the black and white flower, otherwise simple and straight forward.

Thanks for looking (and leaving me a comment)

"cool" birthday card - way out of my comfort zone

My niece turns 9 this week and she specifically requested a "cool" birthday card. "No pink, purple, glitter or flowers. This is baby stuff."
Quite a challenge for me as these are usually the things I like to use!
So I came up with this card. I hope she will be happy with it!
