I am late with my card and post as not enough hours in the days for me at the moment.  Quite a lot of my card and papers are packed away so l had to use standard white card for this inking project - it turned out ok but my smoother Clarity card would have given a better finish.

I had a trip up to Scotland this week for 5 days to help settle my grandchildren back into school, all went well. A long drive for me 403 miles each way but worth it and thankfully this time no traffic holdups. The weather was absolutely glorious around that area and l managed some good walks everyday and a couple of short runs too in a bid to increase my fitness.

It looks like we are going to have some nice weather this weekend so hopefully lots of outdoor time in garden & allotment.  Our house sale is at standstill - still trying to sell as our buyers buyer backed out breaking the chain and the house we wanted has accepted another offer :(    Quite a lot of my craft stuff is packed away so have to use what is still on the shelves.

Have a good weekend whatever you are up too.

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x
