A New Home

Good morning everyone, sorry I haven't been around for a while but still busy with the house, one little job of getting the Artex sorted has ended up into a major overhaul of all the other rooms lol!!.. The dust just got every where so it's lots of cleaning and painting... Anyway I have managed to clear a little space and I've put this card together for this weeks lovely challenge over at Papertake Weekly which is a Sketchie Free For All... This means you can use the new sketch that Dawny has created or you can choose one of the older ones which you can find here.. I have used sketch #42 as it fitted in so nicely with this lovely image from LOTV.

A little bit of CAS....

Good morning everyone, I am now back from my holidays and what a fabulous time we all had.  I can't believe how cold I feel since we came back, I really do need warmth lol!! I will share some photo's with you as soon as I get myself sorted, I feel really disoriented, and not quiet here lol!!  Debs and Candice are now in Worcester, and are settling in slowly.  Our little Jack Russell 'Cassy' also went down this week-end, she has missed the girls so much and was just so happy when she saw them at the week-end, she has her sparkle back again now!! She had two homes as I looked after her during the day, I keep looking for her and think I have let her out into the garden, then realize she isn't here.... any way it's time for another challenge over a Papertake Weekly and this week the theme is 'Repeat, Repeat' our sponsor is the lovely Katherina from Whiff of Joy Stamps....

I have gone with a simple card this week as I haven't had any time to sit and play.. I used the sketch from 'CAS(E) this Sketch', although I was in a rush to make this card I really like the end result, I still have to finish the inside though!!  I think I'm going to try my hand at making more of these little cards... I finally got a chance to use one of my lovely crocheted doily's that Nicole my DIL made for me, it goes so well with this card.  I also used up scraps of card, that I've been accumulating over the last few years, I must go into this box more often lol!!

I do hope you can join us this week, do pop across to the main challenge and take a look at what my lovely teamies have made, I'm sure you will be inspired by there lovely makes!

This week is also going to be quiet busy as we are having Artex taken off the walls in the hallway, stairs and landing yayhh!!!! they start on Friday....  I don't mind the mess as I've wanted it gone for years and finally it will be going yes!!!! I'm going to try and get my card made for next week, before all the dust starts flying about as I won't be able to get into my craft room.  I think it might be a good idea to cover up my computer too! I will try and get around for visits, but please bear with me, I will be back to normal soon lol!!!! 

You all take care,
Love and Hugs,
Marjorie xx
