And we're off....

back to school!!

Hello blogworld

Well today is 'S' day, School that is!  As you read this I will be tootling back from dropping off She Who Must be Obeyed to her first day in Year 1.

I'm fingers crossed she's going to like this Year - I've not really explained that it's learning now, not play, so we will wait and see what happens.

This won't be a long post as I'm typing this Tues evening scheduling for Wednesday morning.  I'm hoping to get back posting again before the weekend, but you never know - it is only a three day week for me this week!!

So we are starting a new week and therefore a new challenge over at Divas by Design and this week the theme is 'Friendship' and we are sponsored by:

And this is my poor excuse of a card:  Apologies for both the poor card and poor photo - I'm really struggling at the moment both with time and space and it's seriously affecting my mojo.

So front shot:

 I used:

Sugar Nellie: Rachelle Anne Miller - Lola with bunny
Coloured with my Promarkers

Nestie circle

Ooh they are a right mish-mash!!
Blue spots and blue roses- Papermania
Yellow background - Basic Grey

Anything else?
Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment
Flowers (which I'm wondering why I used!) - from Joanna Sheen

There we go people - one slightly disappointing card and one not disappointing challenge!

See you soon,

This is NOT a poor excuse for a card! Ugh I so know the feeling though struggling with time and mojo and stress and everything right now!!! I hope Emily has a fab time at school, Caleb was quite quiet going off to year 1 this morning though Hiolette was thrilled to be in year 6 and Amelia was a bit nervy as yesterday was just year 7s and sixth form and today she has to contend with the whole school going back!
I'm on a no day week as hubby is about today and tomorrow and I'm working fri through sun so hopefully next wk will be better for me!
Hugs Rebekah xx
