Back for more

Yup, I’m definitely trying harder! Before I show my effort for the Little Extra from the DCM, I just want to say I really enjoyed taking part in the last challenge! Receiving so many positive, friendly comments was great, really encouraging, and I want to thank everybody who stopped by to look and/or leave a comment!
On to the midweek challenge of dots and stripes, I decided not to be lazy and made a new card, although a wee bitty further down my blog, you might find a card that fits the bill rather well… But I had been wanting to play with the colour combination I used for a while, and then today, with my copy of Scrapbook Inspirations, I received this lovely striped ribbon that matched the colour scheme perfectly. So off I went, and here’s today’s effort.
I’m quite pleased with the result, and it’s going to go into my lovely, decorated bargain birthday card store (grin).

Unfortunately, crafting will have to be put on the back burner for the next week, as my parents have just arrived from Germany for a week's fun and frolics with their grandchildren and two visits to the Edinburgh Festival. My dad is a real music lover, and ever since I moved here, he has been talking about visiting during the festival. It's only taken him 14 years...

Eldest and middle daughter went back to school yesterday and are taking it quite well, and youngest daughter will start nursery next Monday. Yay, more crafting time!!! Or housework time? Hmmhh, I wonder which one will win out...

Until next time, then, and thanks for visiting!
