Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Welcome to the start of a new week and the launch of our 2nd Challenge of 2019. I thought I would go for a nice simple sketch as they work for any occasion that you have to make a card for.
As long as the basic layout is similar I don't mind what you change, the square that says 'image' for instance can be any size or shape you choose. The three little hearts could be flowers, pearls, brads, sequins, or anything else that you can think of.
The most important rule is for you to get crafting and have FUN!!
I am actually looking forward to changing things up a bit this week, Paul and I sorted the dining room last night so that I can get my craft desk fully open and ready to go.
I have made a list of the things that I want to make as well as the cards I need to make so that I can keep my mind focused, otherwise I tend to forget about Birthdays and things and end up panicking and rushing. I have ordered myself a Planner to go on my desk to help me prepare. New Year new me!! (well probably for the first few weeks)!
What did you all get up to this weekend? We got the Christmas tree down and all decorations packed back in their boxes and stowed in the loft, although we have to keep a close eye on everything as Paul has now caught three mice in the loft, Sophie and Lewis kept saying that it sounded as though someone was in there loft (that part of the house is slightly newer and is an extension) therefore it has its own loft space. Of course will only use a humane trap, which he sticks in the back of the car and takes the mouse for a ride down the lane a short drive from our house, its all country fields, he goes a good couple of miles so that the mouse can't find its way back! Lol !!
We just have to be careful that we don't get them in the main loft as that is full of our things, there were two dead, decomposed mice skeletons in traps in the loft when we moved in, Paul has left the skeletons there, he says its a warning to any mice that might fancy moving in 🤣🤣🤣!
Watch this space!
It was so nice getting the house back to normal, as usual the house looks quite bare, but I quite like it!
We hoovered and dusted everywhere after we had packed everything away, it all looks clean and fresh.
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for the week ahead.
Love and hugs to all of you,
