Following the theme from the last post... A new baby card made for a friend's wee boy about a month ago.

The cardstock is SU Bashful Blue and I've used the same colour of ink to stamp the little pattern stamp from the Bundle of Joy stamp set on the background. The "sweet heart" stamp in the punched circles is also from the Bundle of Joy stamp set and the stamp on the lower left is from the Best Wishes & More stamp set.


Well, this is why I've been "quiet" for a while... The due date is probably around the end of June.

I have a couple of scan photos, but I think this one is quite funny, as the baby has turned to stare at us - you can see the eye sockets! Cheeky. The photos are fairly poor compared with the images we saw on the monitor - we could see the arms and legs waving around very clearly!

We went to see Coldplay at the SECC in Glasgow last night... they were excellent, as you'd expect. Very slick and professional. The second photo above shows the band during a short acoustic set where they left the stage and stood behind us.

Here's a very lame recording of "Yellow"... love those yellow balloon beach balls! If you can be bothered to watch as far as 47 seconds, the sound improves dramatically when I remove my finger from the microphone (d'oh)!

I'm back (again)!

I've been in America (central Boston) for the last two weeks... but I'm home again. I managed to wangle a trip to see The Eagles in concert at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA (about an hour west of Boston) on Wednesday 26th November... it was excellent.

More posts to follow shortly!

The photo above shows some Christmas cards I made for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator card swap before I left. Unfortunately, I've yet to make any Christmas cards of my own... haven't had time!
