Hello friends, how was your weekend? Hope it wasn't like mine 'cos it just wasn't fun at all .. had the carpenter here again on Saturday and well kitchen is still not ready!!! .. long story.. so I still have most of the kitchen dismantled and all things lying about. I'm now really hoping he finishes by this week as OH needs to do an op on his hand asap!! Today was not so fun either, we didn't go to the beach as the weather was not nice and I ended up ironing ... Had a big pile which was getting bigger and bigger each day which just had to be done! O well, if I look at the bright side of that I can say now I'm done with that so I have some free time during the week instead... hopefully..

This is a card I managed to do. A colleague of mine needed a card for twin baby boys and waited for me to come back from my holiday . . . busy as I was, how could I say I couldn't do it!

For my card I used some of my new stuff, MS punches and also the machine to do the embossing and for cutting out the names. The stamp I used, which I coloured with my promarkers, is by Marjorie and is a freebie too... wow, cute isn't it :)

I found me some challenges too..

1 - Just Cute Bears Challenge no 32 - EMBOSSING
2 - AUD Sentiments Challenge no 9 - ANYTHING GOES
3 - Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge no 45 - ANYTHING GOES
4 - Stamping Vacation: Occasion Oasis Challenge - CONGRATULATIONS

Hope you like my card and thanks for looking.
