Hello to you if you are reading my blog, and of coarse thanks for taking the time. As you all know i am very new to all this, i mean last year all i could do is turn the pc on.

I am going to share this with you all, Hubby and i were trying to have a baby for fifteen years, after test, after test they told me a was infertile and could not have children we were devastated.
At that time i could not look at baby's without getting very upset.
Last year my niece became pregnant and because she new what i had been through she asked me to be her birthing partner well i burst into tears then she did and we hugged each other which seemed for ever. It was an experience that i will never ever forget. Charlotte gave birth to a beautiful son who is called Bradley, it goes without saying he is one spoilt little boy.
I wanted to share this with you all because i wanted to show you this card i have made for him.

Yesterday was craft-club day, We have just bought some copics for the group. I looked at them and thought to myself what was all the fuss about they look just like felt pens to me,AH DON'T SHOUT MADDY, Once i started to have a go with them the colouring is wonderful so much nicer than whisper pens. At the end of the class you can definitely tell them apart i love them. Hear is the lion that we had to colour in.

I have always been one for a challenge so i thaught i would have a go at parchment, loads of people told me it was easy.
Several screwed up pieces of parhment paper later i started to get the hang of it, and yes i am hooked ( i love it ). mind you it has up to press cost me a fortune.
