Baby 1st birthday.

Afternoon all, how are you this Wednesday?
Today has been a busy day, tying up loose ends.  With my wee man feeling better and back at school I managed into town this morning with a list of jobs to do.  I even managed a very good cup of coffee at the The Drouthy Cobbler and a mighty fine piece of lemon drizzle cake.  Nomn, nomn.
This afternoon I have been tatting around the house....major clear out under way or should I say a spring clean.  I don't venture in the boys rooms as often as I should, I have 3 black bin liners of old clothes today, one for the local rag collect and two with practically brand new clothes in.
That's before I start on the mountain of toys!
I really should do my craft room too which is probably worse!

Anyway enough of all this excitement did you have pancakes yesterday?
I made Scotch pancakes at lunch time which we had with sauce/jam and then at tea time I made traditional pancakes with a whole selection of toppings.  I like to stick to tradition and have lemon and sugar but the boys, well basically....put everything and anything on!
My mum bought me a pancake machine years ago and it's really sad that it only comes out once or twice a year.  I don't know why because they're easy enough to make and everyone enjoys them, every year at this time I always say we should do them more often.  The youngest came home from school today and said....please can we have pancakes again tonight? Bless.

Anyway back to the card I was asked to make this card recently for a little lady who is turning 1.

The brief was pink and girlie!
I even got my sewing machine back out.  
I'm loving the butterfly which is a Sizzix die I bought ages ago but just hadn't got around to using it...I'm glad I have now.

Anyway I better go and sort tea....drumming lessons are us tonight, back tomorrow with more.

Brilliant little girl card, yet it would do for an older girl too. We never got pancakes made, daddy came home early to let me get home and he couldn't be bothered making them, will get them hopefully made on Friday. Oh I know what it is when you start clearing out children's clothes. You should do what my little daughter does with the nearly new stuff, she photographs them and sells them on eBay. She started doing this when Calum her oldest was about 18mths and the girl that bought the first lot she put up still buys all Calum's 8years down the line. Hazel xx

Absolutely brilliant card. I love it.
Glad you son is better and back at school
I also love pancakes especially with maple syrup. I do make them but can't make them nearly as good as my son. He makes "American" style pancake to die for......Mmmmmm!!!!
