.... Yesterday, was madness! I had the cleaners in at the house - they've done a brilliant job, the place is sparkling! Not that it didn't sparkle usually, just that the shine is a bit stronger now :))) I was running all over the place this weekend - catching up with friends and neighbours and saying our goodbyes. It's both sad and exciting. I even managed to get to craft class yesterday - well I had my emergency stash and some free time, so I decided to join the girls for the morning.
I was able to make a card for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge - WMSC88 - and I didn't think I'd do that! I think the sketch is fab, although I've taken a few liberties with it.
I started off by cutting a piece of designer paper and attaching that to the card. The bit that was left I attached to some white card. I wanted to add a bit more decoration to the paper and stamped the funky circles in pale green. I die cut two smaller circles and stamped on them too. On another piece of the same designer paper, I stamped several of the hibiscus flowers and cut them out and attached them to the centre of the panel - so my square became circles and flowers! I finished off with a simple birthday greeting from my stash!

That's all for now - I'm going to spend this afternoon sorting out our suitcases - I need to shift a few bits around to even the load!! I've had lots of lovely messages wishing us good luck with the move and our new life in America, and I'd like to say thanks so much. Take care, see you soon.
