Basic Grey Challenge Card - WK2 and Grandson's 2nd Birthday Card

It is an early start this morning ladies. Did not manage to sit through the whole "Craft Day" yesterday, but managed to get hold off some K&Co and Patchwork Pals, so I am very pleased with myself. I am off to Dundee today to go to a "Craft Show" with my daughter Nikki, she has really got into crafting, so I can feel some treats coming on for her......My younger daughter Mhairi, is making a "Roast Dinner" for tea, yes I hear you say on a mouth is watering a good day to be had me thinks....before I go I have 2 cards to post, my grandson John was 2 on Sunday, so I made him an "in the night garden" card, (it is A4 in size, with finger puppets down the side, I cheated a little by buying the magazine and got the puppets free....) apparantly he just looked and looked at it for about 10 mins, with a smile on his he just wants to play with it, so I am chuffed, as this is exactly what I wanted him to do..... also the Slice machine was in action for his name and age, I just love this machine, but had my eye on the Electric Sizzix yesterday, I was drooling, as my hands are finding it increasingly difficult to use the manual I think a few machines will find their way to ebay, to make room.......Also I have a card for the Basic Grey Wk2 challenge, which is a colour combo off (Brown, Yellow and Pink), the 1st attempt was brown, blue and yellow, now how did I think that Pink is Blue......really must go to the opticians....LOL... I used another tilda image kindly sent to me by my dear friend Dianne, anyway hope you like them girls. I am off as soon as my grandson goes to school, to catch the train....have a great day my dear friends....till tomorrow....Hugs Avril xxxxx

Hi Avril.
I hope you and Nikki have lots of fun today at the demo i was thinking about going but am not going to be able to too :( the only chestnut about lack of pennies and i know it would be difficult to see awesome products and not buy.
It is wonderful you and Nikki have the same interest i got my mum card making stuff for her birthday this year but she says she never has the time to craft so although she likes crafting i don't know if she will sit and play with the stuff or not.
Have a wonderful wonderful day ladies. xxxxx big hugs from me xxxxx
