Baby card...... and some good news!

Hi friends, I am so excited today to be able to share
a bit of good news for a change. We are very happy
to announce that we are expecting another grandbaby
  A lovely brother/sister for Alexander ;)
It will be our 4th and last I think so very special as 
you  can imagine. A few early problems and lots
of scans but the latest scan and blood tests say all
 is well.
It's 3 months now too so I can spread the word.
We have known from almost the first month so it's
 been so hard to keep quiet. It will be nice to have a
 Summer baby this time also, the last three all arrived
 in Winter.
 Anyway here is the congratulations card I made
 yesterday, just before I received news from our son 
that all the tests were good.I can send it now ;)
No blue or pink of course as we don't know the
 sex as yet.  So I went for lilac ;) 
Come and have a closer look........

Winter Wishes card

Hi friends, here is my latest card for the
'Less is More' challenge this week.
The theme is a colour one this time, (see
the picture below my card). They want us to
 take inspiration from this beautiful Design
 Seeds picture.
What lovely colours, trust me to have used that 
colour last week too......why does that always
 happen  ;)
Anyway here is my card, come and have a
 closer look........well after my usual ps. that is!

ps. I am late posting my card this time as I have
 been busy getting the house ready for Christmas etc.
We decided on a smaller tree which will go on top
 of a lovely antique table we have. 
With three grandchildren under 3 I thought it best
 lol.It's up now and all the decorations too whoo hoo!
  We had  them all over at the weekend so
 hence I am  playing catch up once again! 
All presents bought now at least just got to wrap them all.
 Christmas cards finished  too just got to address those now
.....and relax! 
Our son has sold his house again ( last sale fell through)
and they have found another house (even nicer than the
 last one they wanted too).
 Fingers crossed it all goes to plan now. Then we can
 move nearer to them next year we  are hoping. I also
 hope  to have some other good news to tell you very
 soon  ;)
Winter, tree, blue, turquoise, LIM, CAS
I used Glamour dust on the first two letters, the ink is shades of blue and turquoise.

Jingle jingle card

Hi friends, here is my 'Less is More' card for
this weeks challenge which is.....
"Jingle all the Way!
For this we would like to see some reference to any
 of these things.... bells, reindeer, Santa, elves, stockings,
 presents, decorations, Christmas songs/music/instruments
... in fact anything Christmassy!"
Oh goodie an easy one again then! here's what I came
up with (see below). 

ps. Not been a great week.  We heard that my
 niece's husband sadly lost his fight for life last Sunday.He
 was only in his 40's and they have three children too,
......... one only five.

My poor niece has also lost both  parents recently.
Her dad (my lovely brother)2 years ago, her mum (a
 year ago exactly...just 2 weeks ago) and now her 
husband too. Such a terrible time for her......

I am so sorry I haven't got around to leaving comments for
you all this week. I hope you will understand.I still 
have this horrid cold/virus thing too which isn't helping at all.

Our court case on Monday/Tuesday (about our burglar),
just hope I am not coughing non stop as we have to give
 evidence....oh my!
