And back...

Hello blogland,

Well that has been awhile hasn't it!  Happy to report am well on way to recovery - still coughing like a 40 a-day smoker, but at least I'm washed and dressed now. And lets just draw a veil there on that horrible image shall we!!

So it's Thursday and it's Team B's turn over at Moving Along With The Times and this week our fab Teamie Valou has made a sketch for everyone to follow.

The sponsor is:

with a prize of a gift voucher for the shop.

The DT were very kindly allowed to pick an image to play with and this is my creation, with apologies as I was still feeling rather rough when I made it and it's not my best ever!

The Front shot:

The Close Up:

The Arty Farty:

I used:

Digi image:
The Stamp Fairy - Molly Balloons2
coloured with my Promarkers

Le'anne Creatables frame

First Edition - Up, Up and Away

Anything else?
Hobby House - self-adhesive pearls and brad
wooden flower from my stuff
Craftwork Cards - card blank

So I hope you find time to pop over to the challenge have a look at the wonderful creations my Teamies have produced - much, much better than mine!


PS - I just wanted to add a very big thank you for all the lovely comments y'all have left on the bullying problem that SHMbO has had to deal with - thankfully, so far, they have kept the boy away from her and she seems much happier.  We are also off on Easter hols now - so two and half weeks of no school will, I hope, make her back to her old self.

PPS - Many thanks also for the kind get well soon wishes for me, they were, and are, appreciated.

PPPS - I'll tell you all about my week last week, once I can sit at the 'puter for longer than 10 mins without coughing!!!  It's been a 'fun' week, again!
