Red White and Ribbon for An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. I can hardly believe that 2 weeks have past since our last challenge at 

this year is disappearing fast!!! 
But not quite as fast as the British Gas engineer said when he came to fix a leaking radiator for us last week - quote - "it'll soon be Christmas" - slight exaggeration me thinks :o)

Anyways it is time for a new challenge theme and this fortnight my very lovely friend and DT buddy Claire has picked:



Here's what I came up with:

And here's what I used:
Image - Pink Petticoat - (this is my more than 6 months old item) coloured with PM's
Gingham Ribbon - Also more than 6 months old
Spellbinders Grand Nesties - Scalloped Circles and Plain Circles and Standard Scalloped Circles and Plain Circles
Marianne Designs Rolled Roses
Magnolia Foliage Punch 

This card was for Aaron, Kerry and Oliver when they moved 'again' yesterday into another new home - I'm quite happy they have moved again though because they are now even closer - so hopefully I might get to see Oliver even more :o)

Before I go I just wanted to share a couple of photos of Oliver after he had his first taste of my chocolate cake on Sunday.

This first photo was when Jamie (my eldest son was behind the camera)

and then when I was taking the picture:

I am blessed that this is how he smiles at me all the time - long may it last :o)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
