A bit of sort-of sad news

Hi blogworld,

Well here I am again, on an unexpected day with an unexpected post.

The sort-of sad news is that, for now, this the last challenge over at Moving Along with The Times - it should be Team A's turn, but Hazel said anyone who wants to can join in - hence this post and card.

The better news is that it's not the end altogether, just that we are having a break for a few months and will be back on the 3rd October. This hopefully, will give the Teams a chance to re-charge batteries and find lost Mojo's then we will be back raring to go!!

So for this last challenge we have a 'just for fun' challenge and a lovely easy sketch from Hazel to work with.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card, as you can see I've rotated the sketch:

Front shot:

The close-up, hmmmm I didn't get the blending so good on this one did I!,:

I used:

Digi Image:
DigiStamp Boutique - Rosie Collection 1
coloured with my ProMarkers

Memory Box - Simple

I'm not sure - they were very kindly given to me a long time ago

Anything else?
Craftwork Cards - sentiment circle
chipboard number
Stickles glitter glue

So with the spring / summer holiday that MAWTT is taking I'm light on the old DT posts at the mo - maybe the lack of pressure will help me find my lost Mojo - I hope so!  

On the building front some slightly hopeful news - the builder is meeting here with the Building Inspector on Friday.  Hoping it helps the builder sort out any misgivings he has and hopefully we are back on track with building works.

I don't know if I've said as well that we've put in a second planning application for alterations to the garages. If that gets permission it will give hubby a very large hobby room over our two garages.  Hmmm, in that case he won't need the new room over the new kitchen.  A new bedroom then methinks - but who gets it!!!

So here's hoping you pop on over to MAWTT join in with our last challenge and I'll be back with my MAWTT hat on in October.

See you again soon,

Oh Sarah...So glad to hear the builder is about to start...what a nightmare the waiting must have been.
Hope the hobby room for DH goes would be nice to have a guest bedroom!

Your card is so pretty. The colouring is delightful...I love her wistful little face!

I have the grandkids coming for a sleepover and to make cards. I am busy laying out images they have already coloured when I babysit, cutting diecuts for them and measuring out bits of ribbon, embellies etc.
They want to finish a card each for their Mum and their Dad's birthdays which are coming up soon and maybe a couple spare for their finished cards box.
Phew...we will be busy!
