It's Raining Again

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was Natascha's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Weather Or Not" it's all about the weather, so anything rainy, sunny, snowy or even windy.  I looooooove this image, HMOR1096 Special Delivery, I wanted to keep the layout simple as I thouught it suited this image.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by:-
Joanna Sheen who is giving a £10 Gift Voucher

And also My Creative Classroom and they are giving a Free Class

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

My Bit Of News

I did something quite mad and spontaneous for me last week, I have booked myself into a workshop.  It's at Lili Of The Valley and it's to make a recipe box on the 4th May.  I have never done a workshop before, I'm too nervous and I don't like mixing with people I don't know. But I need something to cheer me up a bit.
   I was so fed up, I have had a bad back (that muscle spasm thingy I get), for the last two weeks and then treatment going on at the dentist.  So I saw the workshop on there site and picked up the phone and booked it before I could talk myself out of it.  I do that a lot LOL!  I'm sure I'll be fine when I get there and enjoy it and who knows I could be booking more too.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. The Squirrel And the fox - challenge # 42 - Furry friends
2. Card Makin' Mama's - Ribbon
3. Love to create - challenge # 62 - Bingo (sentiment, Ribbon, Bling)

Stamps - HMOR1096 Special Delivery, Joanna Sheen House Mouse sentiment,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers.
Tools - Grand Calibur, Embossing folders, Nesties, Border Punch,
Embellishments - Ribbon, stickles, 

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting

Hi Tracy, what a beautiful card. The poppy's look so nice with your papers and you have colored up this big stamp beautifully.

A bad back and teeth problems, two of the worst!
Enjoy your workshop, you will do great, and fun to craft with others.
