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.
