Sports Challenge…

 

 

 

Good evening crafters, hope you’ve all had a nice week – they certainly fly by don’t they. I think the time is actually going quicker now I am at home, I am certainly never bored that’s for sure!

Our problem with the floor is ongoing and we’ve got the workmen coming a week on Monday to treat the wet rot. The plaster and skirting in the bay will all have to come off as it has gone up behind it so we’re going to have a mess but luckily it hasn’t spread any further. There is a mix of carpet and tiles on our downstairs floors and we’ve considered replacing them all with wood. Manny was skidding about on the laminate that was under our carpet though so I’m having second thoughts now. He jumps on and off the sofa so I’d never forgive myself if he slipped and hurt himself, especially with his poor little legs. So we’ll just replace the front room carpet for now and look at it again in the future – hard floors are much easier to keep clean when you have a dog but I do like my carpet!

 

 

Time for a new LOTV challenge and because there is a great summer of sporting events ahead it couldn’t be anything else this month but… SPORTS!

There are some fab prizes on offer for 5 winners that we will pick at random and the challenge closes at 6pm UK time on Wednesday 15th June. You can enter and see all the details on the facebook page or click on the picture above

This is another card from the set I did a few months back for Quick Cards and it seemed a perfect choice to introduce the challenge…

LOTV littlefolk 4

 

These are the Little Folk stamps and they are so cute!

I cut the images out and used pinflair on the boy to add dimension. The papers were a download from Etsy, if anyone wants to know what they are send me a message and I’ll dig out the link. They are very brightly coloured but a nice set

The full feature is in the April issue of the magazine if you are able to get hold of a copy

We have a good forecast now for a few days so I’m going to spend some time in the garden and get my flowers planted into pots

Thanks as always for taking the time to leave me a comment, I’ll be catching up with all your blogs over the next few days

Have a fabulous weekend everyone
