im so excited

good morning everyone
don’t have a card to share today  was knocked off my feet yesterday with bad throat and cold
here’s the good part…

i have know for a few weeks now that my youngest son and his partner
are expecting their first baby early next year …
but they ask not to tell anyone till they had been for first scan
with me being unwell i told them to text me didn’t want them to get the nasty bug i have
so late yesterday afternoon the text arrived….
they sent me over the scan picture you know the fuzzy scan sort lol
i replied a beautiful baby bumpkin how lovely .
Son text back

thankfully i was sat down  i know i would have fallen lol…
i am still reeling to be honest with you such an unexpected
i hope you will understand i might be missing for few days till my excitement settles down
  just can't concentrate on making cards at moment
thank you for popping by

seal up your bag and squish the gems around till  coated in ink

tip out your dew drops onto your non stick craft mat
do wear glove for this part  spread them out to aid drying time this really doesn’t take long at all
just a few seconds for the alcohol to evaporated then they are done

There you go instant coloured dew drops
