Got time to do some challenges!

Sorry that I haven't been around but "life" caught up with me again ! ! First the camera went, then the printer and finally the dishwasher . . . that was the hardest blow as it meant washing up for real ! ! ! To add insult to injury we have been informed that our electrics are rubbish (confirmed by 3 different electricians) and we have to have the house partially rewired next week ! ! ! eeekkkk as this means limited or NO electrics for at least 3 days. It also means that we have had to put the kitchen refurb on hold until all of this has been done & then several areas re-plastered. To then top off my wonderful week or so, school has been informed that Ofsted will be in on Monday - not really worried about Ofsted visiting but its just the upheaval it causes . . . oh well, such is life . . she says with a forced grin !

Onto happier things (I hope . . lol). Here is my first challenge card and it is for Polka Doodles. The DT were asked to make a card only using the Crimbley Doodles mini download & a sketch. Because we have printer problems, I had to pop over to a friends and borrow her printer, so only printed off 2 papers (I know, how silly) but have made this card . .

The snowflakes are cut by hand and layered over vellum & card, finally finished with a button in the middle. Quick, simple card but am loving the look myself. Sorry about the photo but also using said friends camera and not too sure how it works ! ! !

Hope you are all well and having a less hectic time than me ! ! !

glad to see you back, Lulu, great card and love the snowflakes.
Hope things soon get back to normal, but you know what they say, if life gives you lemons make lemonade or add some gin, whatever takes your fancy.

Have a good day.

Hugs Carol
