On Your Engagement

Hi my lovelies how are you all? I'm so sorry I've not being around to your blogs been bit topsy turvy here lol, scroll to bottom of post for latest update on Megan.
Anyway I've done no crafting but I forgot to show you a card I made for a very special couple on their engagement..........psst sorry for the pics they were took the other day in a rush & I no longer have the card.

On Christmas Day Ben got down on 1 knee & proposed to Megan & she said yesssssssssssssss!!!
woooooooooo hoooooooooooo.

Isnt this so beautiful would you believe he brought it back in September cus the jewellery store had knocked £200 off it so he got it for £400............his plan tho was to propose on Christmas day, I didnt think he would last til then......he is so impatient he gets very excited lol.

For the card as you can see I didnt use an image instead I thought I would you know I dont know what word to use for this lol................

The sentiment is computer generated by moi but the frame is a digi image from Whimsy.
All flowers from Wild Craft Orchid & papers are Websters Pages. Ribbon, gems, feather & lace from my stash. Wooden heart from Crafts & Me & I painted it white.
The card blank is from Crafty Emma's.

Right now onto the bestest pic of all!!!!!!!!!!!

Meet 'Payton' my grand-daughter yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
She was finally born at 6 o'clock this morning weighing in at a healthy 7lb 10oz. Mum & baby are doing fantastic. Isn't she just gorgeous. I will put better pics on later.
I soooooooooooo cant wait for some squishy hugs. Am going over to their house to get it tidied ready for the coming home........sshhh dont tell them tho lol. I'm also gonna cook them some meals for the next few days just so its 1 less thing worry about. I really am so proud & I cant stop smiling, I've been up all night but its just excitement I feel & not tired at all.......

Well I'm gonna go try do some hopping before I go & clean I will be round to you all by tonight tho.
Thank you sooooooooooo much for your comments on my last post they mean so much to me.
Thank you for stopping by big huggles to you all mmwah xoxoxoxo
