Happy Easter!!!

Hello, Look who's here!!!!!!!!!Yep sweet Luca, my sister and BIL arrived on Friday morning to spend a couple of days with us. Is so nice to have them again and is double nice to spend some time with this little guy. He changed so much since last time I've seen him and even though I see him every day via the web cam( we speak daily) is still a shock to see it IRL. So Friday afternoon we headed to the nearest park even though the weather was grim and showery. We put our wellies on Mimi( he still calls me Mimi LOL) took her camera and off we went. Now of course he is still relatively new to this walking lark and walking in wellies is not fun. Every now and again he ended up like this much to our amusement. And then we found a puddle, and Mimi was the first to teach him just how much fun jumping in the middle of it and splashing everywhere IS( I was so busy showing him I didn't took any pics, boo hoo). You should have seen his little face **priceless**, and I enjoyed that sweet moment before I caught my sister's glare LOL> Well puddles are meant for that especially when you ve got wellies on.

As you can imagine we are having a lovely weekend and I hope you will to. I would love to know how you celebrate Easter.

I have a card to show you, our second challenge at SWUS has been released and the theme is **BIRTHDAY**, so given that I am having such a lovely time with Luca, I started to make a kiddies Birthday card so I pulled my All in the family set out as well as the accessories that goes with it and set to work.

Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive card stock, Rose Red double stitched ribbon, Styled Silver hodge podge hardware and Many Marvelous markers. I stamped everything in black Staz on using the Stamp a ma Jig then added colour with the markers. This card was half inspired by a card featured in a old American SU catalogue. I stamped all the accessories and then I felt like I needed a sun in the top corner well I just went for it without trying it out first and of course it went a bit wrong, but I suppose is meant to look like a child s done it LOL. I have simply wrapped the big brad around the ribbon and secured it at the back. So cute don't you think? I LOVED seeing ebryone s creations on our first challenge and i hope you will play along this time too, is an easy peasy theme so I'm sure you will. Chat soon hugs Monica xxx
