Thank you all so much for the really encouraging comments, I do feel lots better about my cards this week - havn't made much so far apart from this week's little extra which I will show in a mo...


A couple of piccies first from last weekend...








We stayed in the Holiday Inn Eastleigh and had a brilliant weekend - apart from the service at the hotel which was soooo poor, kinda like the parents had all gone away and left the children in charge... oh and a nasty lady called Jared a girl (I'm sure she was not actually nasty but it has probably reaffirmed Mum's opinion that his hair needs chopping...)

and yesterday we went to the Zoo...








There do not seem to be as many 'big' animals at Bristol Zoo now as I remember but the boys had a fantastic time - we went on the train with Nan and Grandad so they were very excited :)

and... "You Big Softie"
We want you to use something soft on your card feathers, velvet paper, fluffy fibres
all that soft, strokable stuff counts for this one and that's it, easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

All the paper is from Kirsty's Betty Loves Adrian little kit - you can down load it from her bloggy blog here ; My soft bit is some wool that I finger knitted to make thicker and arranged in a floral manner; I also used a Bazzill brad and some poppers.

TFL :)

Fabby photos Jo - that one of Josh really made me LOL.

Great card - you know, I thought you'd used pipe cleaners till I read your description, all very clever stuff - I wouldn't know where to begin with finger knitting - I can't even manage on knitting needles without leaving great big dropped stitch-holes!

Love all the photos. Jared just looks like a cute little round faced kid should. He could be a girl in the photo with the hat - but that isn't to do with the length of his hair - just his sweet face. It doesn't take long to see he is all boy!

And your softie card is brill - I love how you add new ideas to your cards like finger knitting - which is such a therapeutic thing to do!

Great card, and what wonderful family photo, don't mean the animals in the zoo, although I am sure their families would enjoy them.

Jo that is so clever using finger knitting. A real blast from the past for me.
