Sweet Sketch Wednesday #175

Hi everyone !!!

My name is Helen, I am from Staffordshire in the UK.

I am 42 and have been making cards for about 14 years .... its an obsession I have given up trying to fight, lol .... I am in my craft room every day if I can .... creating brings me a lot of satisfaction.

 I am also enjoying having a lovely time at the moment with my new Granddaughter .... Ruby.... and looking forward to my Grandson being born in a few weeks .... Babies fill your heart with so much joy.

I also have lots of cats running around .... they are all so funny with their own personalities!!!

Ruby - my little angel!!!

And now for our challenge:

Our lovely sponser this week is A Day For Daisies, the images are wonderful.

A DAY FOR DAISIES provides themed categories of over 1000 fun and whimsical digital images, including fairy tales and magical mermaids, cutie kids, vintage illustrations, sentiments and lovely designs for all occasions!
