Not been here in quite a while & Mr Fox

Hi Everyone,

I have not been here in quite a while I have not felt like crafting or blogging...

I am still lacking inspiration to blog and card make and have just starting picking up my crochet hook again

The main reason for the break from blogland and challenges is due to my Mum being very poorly and so sadly passing away.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to my teamies for all their support and keeping the challenge running so smoothly!

Baby...... Ive been Busy!

Happy New Year!!
To you all

Its been a different kinda Christmas and New year from us
For lots of reasons too...
The main was/is my Mum has been and still is very ill in Hospital but she is comfortable and that is the best we can hope for right now.

On the other note we have started work on the Kitchen
The Horrid hob and disgusting worksurface is out
 and the Awful cooker 

Both of which along with all the cabinets and worksurfaces are now
at the tip!! YAY!
The Only trouble is we now have build the new kitchen

My Husband and A mate re plumbed some of the pipes because it was like spaghetti junction under the old sink and we shifted the washing machine too.

I put my hands to good use and built most of the cabinets

the lads put them in place and also have fitted some of the new work surface yay!

some another few days hard graft and we should have quite a bit more done

I have a card to share and its a little late from my DT spot from As you Like It challenge EEEEEEEEEK! But you can see above some of the reasons why!

The sponsor of this challenge is Crafty Sentiments Designs
and the theme is Favourite Card Shape or Fold (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Now this was a difficult one of me because I nearly always make square cards and love them but this is also a card shape I love too.  It's very simple; you just trim off about 2 inches from the end of the card front, and add your image layer so it hangs over.

Here are a couple of challenges I am playing
Crafty Catz - - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
DoubleClick Skittles - Something New - new baby, supplies...
