Busy bee….

Busy bee, thats me this week. We have been doing up the hall, stairs & landing in the house and it seems to be taking every moment of our holiday from work this week. I have been exhausted at the end of each day and my hands have been so sore from painting that I have not gone into my craft room much at all! However this morning I got up a bit earlier and decided to play along with the sketch challenge at Skipping Stones Designs. The sketch is fantastic and I couldn’t wait to try it out. Here is my quick card….

I used the Grunge set for the background, Sentiment frames set for the sentiment and frame and Heartsong for the butterfly. I used a pale purple circle die cut from my scrap pile and a purple strip of card also from the scrap pile, so it was a nice quick and simple card and I enjoyed making it. It was straight back to the grindstone in the hall after this one :/ The plumber is coming tomorrow to install my beautiful new radiator, then we can put the floor back down and start finishing up on it all, phew!

PS: It was a great morning this morning to discover two of my projects had been featured in two different places – The Graphics Fairy DIY and Scrap Mix – thanks guys 😀
