Tea For Two

This is for the following challenges:-

1. Penny Black At Allsorts - challenge #1 - A burst of summer colour

2. Penny Black Saturday - week 109 -Sketch

3. Allsorts - challenge 60 - July Love

I would like to apologise in advance for any lack of blogging etc over the next couple of weeks.
My sister was rushed into hospital Satuday night, and yesterday they gave my sister a body scan, she has Pneumonia, they have found a hole in her bowel, and a burst ulcer which is leaking gases, and has now caused a hole in her lung. The Doctors are deciding what will be done, it could mean major surgery. My sister has 4 year old twins, who are close to my son Bobby, they are the same age. My sister is not with her twins father, but he is having them at his house to sleep on a night and dropping them off at my house at 6.30 am, I then take them to nursery at 9.00am, pick them back up at 11.30 and then they are with me until 5.30pm. So time is a bit tight, please bear with me and fogive me if I don't get around to your blogs.

I Did do a card for a few challenges tonight, but not too pleased with it , I was just so tired, couldn't consentrate.

Stamps - Penny black, Sentiment by Daisy and Dandelion,
Papers - the rose paper is a freebie from the lovely Inger, Spotted paper is Polkadoodles
Colouring Mediums - Distress inks,
Tools - Cricut, flower punch, button hole punch (from Sir Stampalot), border punch,
Embellishments - Ribbon is Anita's, stickles, gems by Hero Arts (from Sir Stampalot)

Happy crafting
