Coooeeeee! everybody. I hope you've had a good week. I can't believe it's Wednesday again already. Is it just me or does time really pass quicker when you get older? Oh well, not a lot we can do about it is there? lol.

This week over at I ♥ PROMARKERS the challenge is all about Occupations. We're sponsored by Nitwit Collections and all the DT used Nitwit papers. I chose to use papers from the 'Live and Learn' collection and my image is from the fabulous Kenny K. The sentiment is one of my own, the fence is a Cheery Lynn die, the ribbon has been in my stash for over a year and I just used 3 eyelets to finish it off.

While I'm here, I must show you this pic of my grandson. I'm actually doing a scrapbook layout at the moment of him asleep on the stairs the other week, and last night, my daughter posted this of him yet again, pmsl. He quietly sneaks out of his bedroom and ends up here! Bless him.

Fabulous card, such a great image and your colouring is wonderful.
Awwwww bless your little Grandson!


Jennifer said...

Love your card Lorraine - perfect colouring, great design, and fab papers.

Your Grandson looks so cute...to me it doesn't look very comfie, but it must be for him if this is not the first time.

Looked up your post about Harvey - he was lovely. Our pets become part of our family, don't they. We lost our darling little pet duck, Blossom, yesterday. She had been with us 13 years, since she was a little duckling.

P.S. Thank you for your kind comment about my vellum rose.
