A special day for dads - and special news too!

Hello all and I hope that you have been enjoying a relaxing weekend?  And of course here in the UK it's Fathers Day so my husband received his cards and pressies from all 4 of his offspring!  We haven't really done anything special - I hope we let him know all year round how special a dad he is. But I just thought I'd share the quick card that I prepared for my son to give him this morning

He's not one for fancy cards and lots of frills! So this was a simple creation with wooden letters, distress inks, K&Co papers, twill ribbon and brads. The sentiment stamps are from LOTV. 

But I do have some special news to share with you that I've been so excited about! (And quite appropriate too, to share it on a day for parents) - my lovely stepdaughter Lucy is expecting a baby!  Our first grandchild is on the way - yay!  And she recently had her 20 week scan and has been told it's a little girl!  To say we are all thrilled is something of an understatement!  Lucy and her fiance Jon were in the middle of planning their wedding for next spring when they got the news - so now we'll have an extra one with us.  

(Lucy & 'princess' 2 weeks ago!)

And I bet you can guess who's got lots of cute crochet projects whizzing round her brain to get made for the little princess! 
So apologies for yet another gushing family post - but it's such nice news that it's always good to share. 
I hope all the dads out there are enjoying their day too.
Back soon,
