What a week!

 Hi! Well what a week i have had! Firstly the most exciting Sister had  a baby girl on the 8th!  She is gorgeous.  Her name is Sophia and her weight was 6lb14oz. She is a little doll! The picture below is off my daughter, Carrie, feeling very proud of her baby cousin on the day she got home from hospital. My sisters other little girl, Ava who is 3, is so proud of her little Sister and is already very protective of her. 

The next bit of new is that we are moving house! we moving in 13 days! The house is in the same street but is a lot more suitable for us. The kids are so excited. David has been packing lots of things that we dont use all the time. I am tired watching him! I dont know where to start packing up my craft stuff. My stash has grew bigger and bigger over the past few years. We will need a van just for this alone!!

Anyway, i have another engagement card that i was asked to make for someone. 
I have used my neglected magnolia stamp. I love this colour at them moment. feels so fresh and light.
Here is my card...
