Valentine and Pazzles

I don't usually make Mike a Valentine card, instead out comes old faithful that I made about 5 years ago - he's happy with that and I'm happy guessing whether I will or won't get one from him. You can tell we really go overboard on Valentines Day can't you?
However, the last few months have been frustrating as my new cutter has been troublesome from the start and everything possible seems to have gone against us to get it replaced. It even got soaking wet when we returned it to the UK via the Postal Service.
I was almost beginning to think that I really shouldn't have one, but Mike persevered and I am now trying out all its functions in the hope that I will master it one day.
This is really the first complete card I have made with it, so I hope he appreciates it and won't get fed up with it over the next five years! LOL

Exciting news and a Baby Card

We have recently found out that we are going to be grand-parents for the first time. We are so excited and I am already planning more visits to the UK this year. We always knew that being in Spain would be difficult when grand children came into our lives, and we did think we had a couple more years to go before we had to think about it - lol!
David and his partner Jo are over the moon and so looking forward to becoming parents, and of course we are happy for them (and for us) as well.

It didn't take me long to start thinking about baby cards even though we have a while to wait yet, and so I thought I could send one to Mum to be straight away.
