Truly Scrumptious # 48 and Cute Card Thursday # 146

Thought I would take a little bit of time out this morning and make a card.  Have been busy cleaning since the girls went back to school and have just the kitchen and utility to do.  Always like to give the house a really good clean after Christmas and do out wardrobes, move furniture etc., makes it feel cleaner. I know I am sad and could have been making cards instead.

Anyway the card I made, I am entering into two challenges :-

Truly Scrumptious # 48 - Follow Sketch and Optional Theme - Dreaming of Summer
Cute Card Thursday # 146 - Out with the Old (use old stash)

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Patterned Paper, Cardstock and Ric-Rac - Doodlebug
Gems - Mei Flower
Image - Sugar Nellie
Coloured with Distress Inks (managed to get a few re-inkers yesterday)
Woodware Punch
Martha Stewart Punch
Sentiment - Molly Blloms - free with magazine

I have had these Doodlebug papers and cardstock for a couple of years and still had some left over from scrapbooking.  The Daisy image was one of the first images I bought last year.  Thought this would suit Cute Card Thursday's  challenge.  Daisy also suited Truly Scrumptious's challenge for Dreaming of Summer.  Think we are all dreaming of summer with the amount of snow, etc. we have had this winter.

Update on the shop.  Got our insurance broker to contact the loss adjusters as we were getting nowhere.  Things are progressing a little further but still not in our premises yet.  May take a couple more weeks. 

Hope you are all well and getting some crafting done.  Thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post and I would like to say hello to my new followers.  It is very much appreciated.

This is such a lovely card Donna; sweet image and I love the bright papers. The punched borders are gorgeous too. I'm with you on the cleaning; I can't make cards if I know the house is a mess! Can't believe how long it's taking to sort out the shop! Hope it doesn't take much longer. x
