Good morning, well life is slowly returning to normal and I'm pleased to say my daughter has made a great recovery and with a few adjustments, is back home since the weekend with the twins - but I must admit I'm missing them.
Anyhow, it meant that I was able to get into the craft room yesterday and finish my card for the current challenge at Try it on Tuesday which is Travel and Adventure. I've combined stamps that were free with a magazine last year to create my scene - it's about time that some of them were inked up, and I've added a little watercolouring to the background.
Thanks for calling in,

The challenge this month at Stamping Sensations is For A Lady and Crafty Individuals are our sponsor and they are offering one Lucy Winner a £25 voucher to spend in their online craft store.
For my card I stamped CI 430 with a mix of colours - Speckled Egg, Weathered Wood and Peacock Feathers, each time using the Stamp Platform. I shaded with Picked Raspberry, Speckled Egg, Kitsch Flamingo and Peacock Feathers. The butterfly from CI 517 was stamped and fussy cut and coloured with Speckled Egg and the wings were brushed with Frosted Lace Stickles for a subtle sheen.
The rest of the DT have some fabulous samples, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will find details of our Sponsor along with all the challenge rules.
Life has been very hectic - daughter Laura was rushed into hospital with Appendicitis, so the twins came to stay with us and also Laura for a couple of nights when she came out of hospital. Good news is Son-in-Law was able to take time off this last week, so they all went home. He's back at work tomorrow, so they're all coming back as she's not supposed to do any lifting for the next few weeks, so if I'm an absent visitor, you know what I'm up to.
Have a great day, I've got all the family coming for lunch, so I'd better make a start.

The theme for the challenge this fortnight at Try it on Tuesday is - yes, you guessed - Here Comes Summer. So, it's whatever summer means to you - Holidays, Days Out, Colours, Blooms, just to name a few, we'd love to see.
I love to see summer flowers and I'm always eager to see colour in the garden, not that I've ever grown Gerber Daisy's. I've used a shaving foam background and then stamped, coloured and fussy cut the flower head before doodling a frame and adding the birthday greeting (which looks slanting - but it's not)
The rest of the Design Team have some wonderful projects to show, so please pop over to the main blog, where you will also find the challenge details.
Thanks for calling in - I'm on Grandma duty again, Mammy is having a day off to catch up on some jobs. The twins are just starting to be weaned, so Grandma is making Pear Puree for lunch! I hope they like it.

I made a journal page and started with my rainbow using Distress inks before stamping this Inkylicious Banksy girl along with a sentiment and those 'raindrops' that now look like snails, also from Inkylicious.
The rest of the team have some wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog for all the details.
I am going to join in a Art Journal Journey where this months theme is Inspire which was picked by Eileen from The Artful Crafter's Blog, but sadly she passed away shortly after heart surgery last month, she will be greatly missed. My page was inspired by my love of rainbows.
A short post as I'm trying to do some catching up on my day off from 'Grandma duties'
Thanks for calling in, have a great day,
