New Arrivals & Death of the Town.

I made this card last night as my friend has finaly had her baby. She had her yesterday morning, Ella, born 15 mins after arriving at the hospital. Lucky thing! I was convinced the baby was going to be a girl so I had made the card a few weeks ago, and finished it off last night. I am always right, sometimes!

So, I am taking this oportunity to enter it into some challenges as well! I am entering it in to The Allsorts Challenge and the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. I seem to have got into this competition entering. Some of the enteries are a professional standard, some people have such a talent.

Today I have been to a local town to the shops. I never go to Spenny shopping as it is the most depressing place in the world, a lot of towns around here are, and I shouldn't have wasted my time today! I looked on the net and saw that there are supposedly 2 craft shops in the town, but there was hardly anything. Most shops are shut down. Its so sad really. Its all our own fault as well because we favour large shopping centres, which have killed our towns. I felt really sad when I came back. I am hoping it is a result of the recession and one day the towns will regenerate but I don't hold much hope. I know myself, everything is cheaper on the net or in shopping centres filled with multinational companies. I don't think there is an easy answer.
