Oh Happy Days…

It has been an odd couple of weeks here – as I have not been well  have been pretty much house bound but June is looking like a very busy month indeed. My youngest son finished school on 27th May for good – just got his A level exams to get through and that is the ned of an era.  I will become an empty nester as he heads off to University in October. While they say that life begins again at forty I actually believe it begins again as soon as the children head off to start their own new chapters.  I see lots of crafty time on the horizon….

Meanwhile….Its challenge time here at

I just love this card, which is illustrated using my Tim Holtz Distress Markers and a fine paint brush and whilst it has been spoken for (Susan Moffatt!!!!) It is a stamp I can see myself using a lot…
