On the rocks

Hi all,
My sister had her second daughter on Monday. There is no name yet, and no photos, but Daisy is very excited to have another little cousin. I'm just wondering how Martha will cope, as she has always been the youngest and might find it hard having someone smaller around. My sister is living in California at the moment, so I'm not sure how long it will be before we see them in the flesh. I'm so thankful for skype! So, at some point, there will be a baby card on here.
Daisy was sent home from school yesterday as she was ill, which means that she now can't go back until Monday as she has to be kept away for 48 hours to stop germs spreading.
Over at CRAFT, we are sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop, Pink Gem Designs and Sassy Studio Designs. Our theme is houses, house warming or moving home. I have used lighthouse by Digi Doodle shop. I have seen many beautiful cloud backgrounds around blogland, so I thought I would have a go. It's not perfect, so I need some more practise. The papers are by Papermania and I kept the card quite simple embellishment wise as I wanted the image to be the star. Please check out the rest of the projects by the DT.
