A whole week's gone by!!!

Oh dear, where has the week gone, am so sorry I just haven't made contact with the craft room for nearly a whole week and then it has taken me two evenings to make this card!! Not good!! Well our week, old conservatory has finally come down, wall has been knocked down, bricks and building materials have arrived. And all been carried through the house as we have no back access to the garden anymore, all one thousand bricks by wheelbarrow. Good job I'm a patient wife!!! And guess what, Hubby has got himself another job!!! Good news, be it only temporary until Christmas, but what about my nice new conservatory (summer craft room)?? I suppose the bricks will be there for a long while now, oh well, I can always put some plant pots on them in the summer!! So folks, watch this space ...................
Anyway this card that I have made and am actually going to use, fits in with a few challenges. I've totally lost track so hope I'm in time for these!!
