Today's offering & Earthquake in the UK

Here is the Mothers Day Card for David's Mum. I started it on Monday night and finally finished it off last night. I used Tilda with a Basket of Flowers stamp & Doodlebug alpha stamps (Mum), Basic Grey "Phoebe" papers, American Craft ribbon, SU scalloped circle, ATB tape writer for the sentiment and misc buttons from my stash. I am really pleased and I know she will love it....and keep it.
Last night I had fun playing with my new Tilda stamps. I made two cards with the Tilda in the Tub stamp...a boy version and a girl version. For both I used Tilda in the Tub stamp, 7Gypsies "Baby Oh Boy" & "Baby Oh Girl", Bazzill cardstock (on the boy version), SU scalloped punch, Inque Boutique circle sentiment stamp & Doodlebog button. These cards are inspired by Marlene (DoubleDutch on UKScrappers). I copied the colours she used on the stamped image, but the rest is my own...Her cards are so wonderful, you cannot fail to be inspired by them. These can be used as either a New Baby card, or Baby's First Birthday....I have left them neutral enough to work for both.

While I was crafting in the early hours of this morning, I felt the sofa moving/shaking... I went up to bed really nervous and asked David whether he had felt it, and he said no. But when I looked above the bed, the picture was crooked and it hadn't been earlier that day, anway I went to bed and really tossed and turned for a while waking everytime I heard anything. When I woke up morning and on the way to school/work I hear that the UK was hit by the largest earthquake in history at somewhere between 5.2 & 5.3 on the richter scale....see I wasn't loosing it...LOL
