Happy Sunday

Apologies if I've missed commenting on some of your blogs but I've had a crazy week with guests turning up, coming and going, and some staying into next week. Adding into that the lack of one bedroom and bathroom it's been a bit mad! Thankfully this time next week I may be considerably further on with the bedroom renovations as my units, skirtings and 2nd fix plumbing should be going in (fingers crossed).

As a result I've not had much time to craft but here's a card for a couple of challenges:

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Elegant Butterflies & Congratulations word die -
both heat embossed in gold and Winked with Stella.
Uniko: Background Builders Vines
Doodlebug: Sequins
Sizzix: Mosaic embossing folder
Gold metallic cord from my stash

Clearly Besotted: Anything Goes
CASology: Celebrate
Fusion & CAS(E) This Sketch: Combined
Pixies Crafty Snippet Challenge


So thanks for stopping by, have a fabulous day and any feedback is much appreciated if 
you've time to leave a quick comment.

Many thanks
