Alex has been my little ray of fun throughout this time as cuddles with him have made everything seem so much better. He is interacting more and more with his environment and is beginning to spend time sitting up, but only when he is sat on the floor in front of my lap. After about a minute he suddenly seems to realise what he is doing and the potential for a game and throws himself backwards into my lap. All good fun! Bath times are getting splashier than ever and although he is still looking really tired, he has been sleeping more in the last two nights. I really hope that he learns to sleep properly.
In the past two days I have actually managed to make a couple of cards which was great. They are very similar with one being a paler version of the other. Both of these cards used the StampsAway rose and music stamps with the rose being stamped onto white card then coloured in, then layered over with a scrap version before the card was then stippled all over using two colours. Finally the music background stamp was applied and the scrap paper peeled away to reveal the rose. This central panal was then mounted onto either a pale pink card or dark red card and then applied to an A6 card with a yellowy parchment card edged with ink.
I am really pleased with the effect of these two cards and they will be perfect for two friends who are musical...one sings and the other plays the violin. Anyway, must dash now. More soon.
