Get Picky / Cardabilities....

In the midst of caring for a very sick cherub, life has come to somewhat of a standstill here.....  there has been very little scrapping but I do have a couple of things to share none the less...

At Get Picky we have just revealed our latest inspiration prompt....this month we decided to go with the following song lyrics....

"Forever Young" by Bob Dylan
May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

I so loved the lyrics to this song...there were many different lines I could have used and had lots of ideas,
but in the end, I went with...
"May your heart always be joyful"

As the journalling says....on this particular day, Belle decided to make a flower / bow out of the serviette she had wiped her brush on, while painting with her watercolours.  Her creative talent just amazes me.....she is very natural and uninhibited and creating is such a joy for her...I just love it.  As for the crazy faces...well that's just her too...hehehe....

and our latest sketch over at Cardabilities ....
and here is my card...

I loved how easy this sketch was to work with.  I've used it to make up 2 more cards since :)  I used a couple of my Martha punches and made the little flower in the centre.  Too easy really.  Be sure to pop over to the Cardabilities blog and be inspired by the dt's gorgeous creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by and of course leaving your lovely comments :)  I really do appreciate the time it takes to leave them :) xxx
Take care everyone!

  2. Hey Nik, I have to say it otherwise I am going to feel so guilty ... I am going to SCRAPLIFT that layout of Belle. I LOVE IT! Can you do all my scrapping for me ... pretty please with sugar sprinkles on top hehe?

  4. Oh I am so sorry your little one is sick, Nate got his 4 yr old needles yesterday and got a fever last night so no sleep or scrapping here either. I love your stunning layout, the journalling is beautiful, she is clever and crafty just like her mum. Melxx Hope your cherub is better real soon.

  5. Hey Nik, beautiful work - I just loved the card. And you know.......... I'm sure I saw you with that bow in your hair the other day! :0)
