Not a card?????

Well good morning..

I hope you are all well..

We are off looking for baby things today... yep we have more news...

Our social worker has told us that after the last meeting we are a definite match for a little girl, so all we have to wait for now is smile is so wide I cannot even tell you lol... She is 9 months and we should have her (all being well) within the next 10ish weeks... although they are looking for a cancellation -  hence the reason we are shopping as it could be any time - or it could be early April... but I don't care as she is coming and that is all that counts lol!!!

We did do a sneaky shop last night - baby monitor, and 2 dresses  - we couldn't help ourselves lol.. We are just sooooo excited!!!

Anyhoo's it is Saturday so that means a new challenge over at

And this week it is 'ANYTHING BUT A CARD'

Now if you have been over to the store recently you will know Emma has a HUGE sale on, and one of the things in the sale is brown gift bags.

Now I am a naughty crafter and I purchased some of these bags a wee while ago, but couldn't decide how to decorate them lol..

So this just seemed the perfect challenge to dig them out!!

I have used the bag, butterfly button and twine from the store

The scrummy seam binding is from sew sweet

The image is Little Miss Muffets Agent Bubblegum

Isn't she just perfect for teenagers??

I am also entering this into:

Little miss Muffet - Blue n Cream

Totally Papercraft - Make your own flowers

Do you stack Up - Patterned paper

Well thanks for looking 
Have  a lovely weekend xx
