It's Been a While.

So - a few things have been happening lately, dad I'm happy to report is doing OK. I on the other hand am not. Unfortunately me and my husband are separating. It's come as a huge shock and to be perfectly honest with everything else that's going on - I'm not doing so great.
On top of that - I have to move out. The house belongs to him and he runs his business from there too. I'm moving in with my mum and dad which is good for them as I will be able to help out more but not so good for me as space will be an issue - especially for crafting.
I won't be doing any of my challenge blogs - I'm starting to pack my things up together tomorrow and goodness knows when I shall be able to unpack them.
I have however got a few cards photographed so I think I shall be able to carry on blogging - it just may not be very regularly.
Today I have a Double Dutch Fold card to show you. It uses the very gorgeous World of Dreams teamed up with some Gorgeous Grunge too - take a look

The top pic is the inside - my favourite bit ( might have to recreate on the front of a card). Colours used are Marina Mist, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate and Baked Brown Sugar. The sentiment is from Painted Petals - isn't it lovely?

Thanks for visiting here today and for listening to me moan! See you soon xx

  5. I don't comment very often Jacqueline but I always read your posts and the MMM challenge was the first one I entered when I started blogging! Glad to hear your dad is doing well but sorry to hear about your break up. A very stressful time and I hope your crafting will be a panacea.
