Just a note

 Hi all,
I hope you are having a good day.  I am having a quick break from the housework, as I am not working today (the beginning of a school term is always slow work-wise for me).  Yesterday, the builders came around again to continue with the business of extending our house.  The orangery is now up and we are waiting for the glass roof which is coming tomorrow.  Then, the wall between the kitchen and the orangery will be knocked down.  Once that is done, I need to get decorating.  I hope to get it all done by Christmas, but with work, looking after the girls and crafting (of course) I'm not sure how much time I will have.
Over at Creative Craft this fortnight, we are sponsored by Bugaboo.  Our theme is anything goes, and as usual, I had trouble deciding what to do.  I wanted to do something different from a card, and settled on a post-it note holder.  The image is by Bugaboo, the paper is by Basic Grey, and the flowers were made from a scalloped circle, which I cut and rolled.  I keep thinking I should get one of the proper flower dies, but as this works for me, I'm not sure about spending the money!  I wrote on the blackboard with a pink chalk.
See you later.
