CPS Sketch #100

Hello....remember me?????

I'm so sorry to have abandoned this poor little blog for so long. I've been having a wonderful time with the kids over the Summer holidays. All good things come to an end though & it's back to school on Monday. I'll miss my sleep ins but I'm kind of ready to get back into a routine & spend some time without hearing chatter 24/ little girl can talk like you wouldn't believe, LOL.

We've also been busy doing lots of work on the house. Hubby remodelled the kitchen a bit as I've been wanting a desk area in there. So some cupboards were reshuffled around & I love the end result. I am also now the very excited owner of my very first dishwasher, I love it madly.
There has been a lot of painting happening too, 4 rooms so far, & it's really freshened the house up so much.
This will be a continuing effort this year. We are very determined to get this house finished finally.

Needless to say there hasn't been much time for crafting but I must say I've enjoyed taking a break for awhile.
My daughter, Chloe, has come to visit today & it's the perfect opportunity to sit down together & get stuck back into it.

The great team at CPS are celebrating their 100th sketch so I thought that would be a great place to start. The are running a competition at the moment so pop on over to check it out, there are great prizes being offered.
So here is my card based on sketch #100.
I've used Crate Paper "Prudence" papers & diecuts.

I hope to have more projects to show soon but for now I hope you've all enjoyed the holidays too & that all the kids settle back into school happily.
