Running water....

Good morning all and hope that your weekend has been going well?  And I hope that those of you in the UK are coping with the pretty rotten weather?  We have the ongoing works on our bathroom - but thankfully have a loo and running water but considering the terrible rainfall and floods that some have had to deal with it seems an irony that I'm thrilled to have the running water lol!  I will be so pleased to get the work finished - and it is a bit of a challenge having what seems like a constant stream of builders/plumbers/joiners/plasterers, etc., traipsing through the hall and up and down stairs and I've made countless cups of tea and coffee this week! Tilly the Dog has quite enjoyed it all and the workmen all make a fuss of her and say what a 'sturdy' little dog she is (which I think translates as 'fat'!).  Poppy the cat however, is not so happy about it all, hates disruption to her 20+ hours a day snoozing, and particularly doesn't like strange men!  But I'm hoping that by this time next week that most of the work will have been done and then there'll just be the flooring to do. At least it'll be all nice for Christmas (fingers crossed!) - but then it'll put the rest of the house to shame lol!

Anyway, on to today's card. I've used the image 'Spit happens' from Mo's Digital Pencil - just love that facial expression!
I've tried to keep to a fairly neutral colour palette of promarkers with soft shades so that it could be suitable for boy or girl - but think that maybe it all looks a bit washed out!  And then realised after I'd shaded the ground/carpet underneath the baby that I'd coloured it with brownish shades (hope it doesn't look like there's been a nasty accident....?).  Oops!

The backing paper is from K&Co, layered onto coredinations card, with stitched edges. The ribbon & buttons are from stash and the cute little sentiments are from LOTV, with some added pastel brads. 
So I hope that your Sunday goes well - whatever you have planned! 
And a big thank you for all the lovely comments that you leave - I can't tell you how much they mean! 
Back soon, Kim x

  20. Love the neutral colours sweetie. Very clever so it indeed can be used for either gender. I didn't notice the shading until you pointed it out, but no it doesn't look like an accident. Glad they are coming to the end of doing your bathroom. Mine starts next Monday but it isn't such a big job as yours.
