Chasing my tail
I hope you had a lovely weekend. I still have a bit of a cold, but I am feeling loads better. It was Martha's birthday on Saturday - a big 2 years old. We went to my inlaws house and had a little party for her. A few friends and cousins came along. Luckily, the sun shone for most of it and she had a lovely time. We are having building work done at our house, which is why we didn't hold it here. Our old conservatory is being knocked down and an orangery is being put up instead. It will be a bit bigger, and we are having the wall between it and the kitchen knocked down to create a more open feeling. It should be done in 6 weeks if the weather holds out. Also this weekend, my sister and her family came up to visit. They live in America and have come over for 2 weeks to visit friends and family. They're travelling all over the country and are a bit shattered, but it was lovely to see them and let our girls and their 2 girls play together. It was the first time I have seen my 4 month old niece in the flesh, who is gorgeous and very chilled out.
So, this is why I am a bit late with DT work, etc and am now chasing my tail trying to get it all done. This card is my DT work (one day late, so not on the challenge blog - oops!) for this week's Incy Wincy challenge, which is Dust it off. We want you to use something which you haven't used for ages or have had for ages and never used. Our sponsor is Tiddly Inks and I have used Lilli Clare makes a wish for my card. The papers are from a Dovecraft pack which I bought about 5 years ago. I have used one or two sheets out of it, but that is all. The stars have also been hiding away in a box and I only found them again last week.
I'm off to catch up on things. See you later.
