Sunshine!

What is happening to the weather this year...May bank holiday and we had sun again!  Although it was quite windy Alex and I had a great time out in Millhouses Park where he went on a boat by himself for the first time (I was reassured when I realised that the water was less than 8 inches deep). He was extremely excited, and especially pleased to be dressed up as a pirate for the occasion. Sadly I went back to work yesterday and have been reduced to looking at the sun out of the window..hey hoh!
As it is now Wednesday it is time to show you my desk as part of WOYWW.  On my desk you can see my lovely mug of tea (it holds a pint and is wonderful!), a baby card in the making, various patterned papers, glue, DST, craft knife, ruler and craft mat as well as my battered wallet (originally from South America and now 15 years old and looking rather worn) - not quite sure why it is on my desk this morning...I need to put it away!
Here is the completed card made for a work colleague who goes on Maternity leave today. Her first baby is due in two weeks and she doesn't know what sex the baby will be hence the blue and pink colour scheme. I followed this weeks Unscripted Sketch for the layout of the card, so that card also fits with CCT 'use any sketch' challenge, Colour Creates 'pink, blue and brown' (the brown is the light brown of the baby grow), SCSC 'for a baby, and Paper cutz 'anything goes'.
I must apologise to all those LIMettes who kindly commented on my Thank you card (see previous post). I hadn't realised that I had broken the rules and entered too many challenges so I am entering the Less is More challenge again, this time with a congratulations card. I am also entering this for Stampin' for the weekend 'Wedding' theme. That is all from me for today. Have a great rest of the week.
Love,
Caro

Cute cards! Don't you just love those baby feet! Your pirate looks very proud of himself. Glad the water was only 8 in deep. It is so hard to let go as a parent. Sorry I am late getting around this week but I haven't been feeling well this week! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #36
