Yes it really is me!

Hi, I'm back and hopefully able to get into blogging and crafting again. Martha is now a month old. I was averaging 2 hours sleep a night for the first fortnight, but thankfully she has adapted well into sleeping more at night. The only problem now is she will sleep in her moses basket at night but wants to sleep on me in the day. I'm writing this with Martha dozing on my lap. Anyway, I've starting crafting again as I was getting withdrawal symptoms.

Over to the card, Penny black at Allsorts have the theme glitter and glitz for this month. I have used a stamp I love, although my hubby said I need to be careful who I send it to as they might be upset I sent them a cow. I think she's cute. I used glitter on her boots and some lovely gem swirls I bought yesterday. The blog is also having a DT call and so in a moment of madness I have decided to have a go at it.

Hi Nikki

Nice to see you have had time to do a little crafting .. .. and only one month in!!! Well done!!

I can believe the withdrawal symptoms though.

I am pleased to hear that Martha is settling down nicely now and that you are getting a bit more sleep.

I think your card is lovely. That image is so cute with his little wellies!!

Keep having fun with your little family and see you again soon hopefully.

Love Jules xx

Wow Nikki that is so super cute - I agree with you! I'm glad Martha has settled into a better sleep routine and you have been able to get back to crafting. Like you, I get withdrawal symptons too if I haven't made a card for ages. Good luck with the challenge too x

Congrats on your little Martha, my wee man Alfie did the sleeping on me thing at the beginning too. He still likes his little nap on me in the morning but he goes in his cot for the nap after lunch, it all gets easier I promise lol

thankyou so much for joining us this month at Penny Black @ Allsorts, good luck in the prize draw!
