New Baby card

Well the house is sooooo quiet,Matthew,Tasha,Ellie and Holly-Ann moved out yesterday and Helen moves out on Monday,so just John and me rattling about in a 4bedroomed house.It does mean I can have my craft room back again though,not much consolation really at the moment!Me and Helen took the girls into town to buy new school shoes WELL it must be easier taking teenagers!!!We finally found some that fitted Holly(4ys) and she said ooh they fit and feel really comfy and as I said FINALLY she carried -on but I don't want them they are not shiny enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Ellie(6yrs) meanwhile was trying on boots way to big -but they had heels,she wanted heels that made a noise when she walked and not baby shoes,after half an hour during which Helen almost had a melt down,Holly turned round and said I hope you don't think I'm spending all after-noon in this shop WELL words failed me lol.We finally found two pairs of "suitable" school shoes.The card today is a baby card I made a few weeks ago and not blogged yet but fits a few challenges --the image is Baby 2 by Heather Ellis at Digi stamp characters,coloured with promarkers,ribbled some blue card,and added a couple of dies and tonic punch.Papers and buttons from stash.
