A long absence...

Hello, it's been a looong time!  Lilian has been keeping me pretty busy and her bedroom is right next to my craft room so I have had very little time to make cards for the last couple of years.  I never realised how sacred nap times would be until I had a baby of my own and now another one on the way!  I finally decided I would have to just make little bits of time to do little bits of crafting... I do feel a bit like I've forgotten how to colour and make cards though, so bear with me.  Here's one of my first attempts using a Tiddly Inks image entitled Wryn and Mo - Love you Most for the current BFF challenge at Tiddly Inks.

Excuse the poor lighting... it is the middle of winter here and we have not had many sunny days at all.

And here are a couple of pics of me, the bump (21 weeks) and my munchkin...

I hope everyone is well in blogland :)
