"With Love"

Good Morning Blog friends, welcome once again to my little corner of Blogland.  I love to have you visit, thank you so much for leaving all those lovely comments, I read each and every one. 
Oh! My! Word! have not slept so long in ages.  Must have tired out my brain, I got a new phone and have not a clue how to work it.  Had to get Thomas 8 to help me, I am a real "Technophobe" and it is really worrying me. 
Weather here was terrible yesterday morning, tuned out OK  later.   Audrey (DIL) is off with a few friends for a weekend in Paris, John Jnr is in charge so you can guess where the boys spent their day!! Yep! if they don`t have mum or dad, Grandpa is the next best bet.  Notice I said Grandpa and not Granny!!!   I love these boys to bits but it is definitely Grandpa that`s the winner in this house, till it comes to feeding time..................

Sorry! no prize on offer for the 1st one who posts to say who inspired this card.

  6. Hi Patricia, no guessing required to who inspired this card. The colours and design are beautiful and of course the use of Sue's dies. Must be good fun when the boys are round, keeps you on your toes and its said the way to a man's heart is though his stomach.

    Have a great day.

  10. Good Morning Patricia, Beautiful card and I love the chocolate colours. All you Spellbinder girls make such fabulous cards, the dies and embossing are gorgeous. Haven't got many of them myself, mabe thats the next thing to spend my money on. Have a great day with your boys, kate x

  11. Hi Patricia,
    another beautiful card. With fabulous roses creations too.
    I know what you mean about phones, I hate changing mine, but when you have mastered it you think well that was easy, why was it so difficult when you first had it, and then it's time to change again. I have all my daughters old ones as she changes every couple of years, but I try not to change that often.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  12. LOL Patricia - I had to smile. It's Grandpa in this house for all necessities. I'm only good for 'making things' if they are in the mood.
    Super card and beautifully crafted. Sue has a lot to answer for with her amazing use of Spellbinder dies. Loving that lace trim!

  19. Hello Patricia,
    So sorry I haven't been by in ages, I am hoping life will settle down again soon so I can get back to blogland, but ontop of everything else thats been happening, my daughter has now moved home and so my house is upside down.
    I have been able to check my fave blogs on my phone but had to come by and say hi on the laptop today and tell you your cards are lovely. So varied and so pretty.
    I hope to be back blogging in the next day or two as I have managed to make a couple of cards over the past two weeks.
    Take care and I do hope your sister is doing well.
    Biggest Hugs Linda x
