What can we use this one for?

Hi all, once again not a very productive day as regards crafting, I seem to be at everyones beck and call these days running errands, taxi services or general dogsbody.  When will I get time to fit in making cards.  My nephew was up tonight just as I settled down to make some cards to get me to print off insurance documents for him. He is off to New York to celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary and his printer packed in (well what are aunties for) and we got chatting about what they intend to do over there and the time flew by.

I also has a visit from the new baby this afternoon.  When I had my son we did not take babies out for about a week to acclimatise them, nowadays they are up and out as soon as they are born.  He is beautiful, so tiny, I got to feed him and of course change his nappy, love disposable nappies, we had the terry ones and what  work was involved washing and drying them. 

I am running out of cards to show here so I better get my finger out tomorrow.  Sorry but this one is similar to one I posted earlier, similar but different.

Ingredients for this are

8x8 card
White card stock
Blue pearlised card from Create and Craft
Spellbinders Persian Motifs for the small squares and the large circle for the middle
Memory Box La Rue Flourish
Blue ribbon I think this was a bundle I got from Creative Expressions
Blue Pearls

There is no sentiment on this one as I intend to put an appropriate one on if someone likes it, or I use it myself.

Well ladies I have enjoyed reading all your comments on my cards and feel quite proud especially as you all seemed to like my efforts,  As I have not been crafting long this has given me a great boost to continue.  I have my daily Blog fix as I have my coffee around 0530, can't seem to sleep too long, and then later around 1100.  My husband says he wishes he had not bought me an IPad as its never out of my hands but I have to keep up with all the postings and comments.  You all seem to be very talented and each day I am impressed by the cards you post, I only hope I reach your standards some day.

Night night don't let the bedbugs bite.
