Here we go, here we go, here we go...

heeeere we gooooo!!!!

Hello blogworld

And how are we all today - first I want to share some good news before I do the serious stuff - guess who actually turned up yesterday and gave us a start date???? Yessss, it was the builder (and the Building Inspector) and the building works start a week on Monday!!  Next week we are clearing out the office and other rooms -Monday 10th June is B Day.  Yipppeee!!

So now we've got that bit of excess energy out of the way - lets get down to business.  I'm here on this lovely June morning with my DT card for the new challenge over at FlatFriends - this month Emma has drawn us a fabby sketch.

I think it can be kept very simple or dressed up with accessories and below is my take on it.  Apologies in advance this is a very lacklustre attempt at a card on my behalf, doesn't do Emma's digis justice at all.  It's been a busy old week what with it being half-term and I just ran out of time to do something better.

So here we go:

Emma Canning - FlatFriends dig : bit of a sneak peek here I think as it's not out yet!!

Anything else?
Brass flower and brad

So there we are - why pop over to the challenge blog and see the fab creations from my Teamies, they are much, much better than mine!

Hope everyone has a good weekend and hopefully I will be back next week with cards and building pictures ;-)
