Hello Friends

Do you find that some days you just can't pull anything together craft-wise no matter how hard you try? Well this afternoon has been one of those times for me! My bin is full of abandoned mess-ups as I've tried numerous attempts at the ColourQ challenge for this week. I was almost going to throw in the towel and tidy up when I saw the Retro Sketches layout for this week and I found some renewed vigour. 

So here it is and I've realised I can enter this into a third challenge ... Time Out Challenges! It's a fairly new challenge and the brief this time is Happy Birthday with an option of a Masculine card. PLUS Uniko Studio are sponsoring this challenge with a fabulous prize up for grabs and I've used their Background Circles set along with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted - In the Frame set. 

To finish off I've added some hemp cord and Doodlebug Sprinkles from my stash.


Not sure when I'll get a post in this week as I've got my parents arriving shortly for a few days but I'll be keeping up to date on what's happening on the 'blog-vine' when I get a minute.

Enjoy your evening and thanks for stopping by.
