I'm still alive, honest!!

Evening lovely, lovely bloggers!!
Yes I know, a whole fortnight has passed since I last posted *wrist duly slapped!!  I'm really up against it at the moment what with my Little Woo starting school and trying to get my never-ending list of 'Things To Do' done before I go back to work next week.....yes Monday is soon approaching and do you know what, I can't bloomin' wait!!  I'm so excited about starting my new job (never ever thought I'd say that about work lol!).  But unfortunately something's got to give and at the moment it's my crafting and blogging that have taken the hit.  Give me a few more weeks and hopefully I'll be back to normal!!  Oh, and Little Woo is absolutely LOVING school, yaaaaay!!  :o))
Onto my card.  This is my Pollycraft Challenge DT card and our theme for this fortnight is...
Birthday Girls
Easy Peasy and there's loads of fabulous girls to choose from in the shop should you want to use a Pollycraft one (to be in with a chance of being picked in our Top 3)!  Here's my card using Candyfloss Crew Daisy...

Autumn has arrived...

Morning all,
Hope you're all well?  Isn't the weather fab!  Well not the rain but the autumnal chill, I just love it!  Jumpers, Jeans and Boots, it's my favourite season (although I do also love the snow too but only when I can play in it, not when I have to be somewhere!!).  And speaking of Autumn, our theme this fortnight over at the Pollycraft Challenge is...
Harvest Colours
Ooooo, such a rich colour combo.  Here's my card...

Busy, busy, busy.....

Morning Peeps,
Wow, I can't believe it's been a week and a half since I last posted - where has the time gone?  Well for me I've been madly busy getting Big Boy ready to go back to school and enjoying my last few days off with Little Woo before she starts school tomorrow.  I don't know what it's like with you but round here they do a staggered start when they first start school so she's in tomorrow and Tuesday morning only this week then she does all mornings next week, until after lunch the week after and it's not until the week after that that she starts full time.  I have no idea how people that work manage this, it is a bit of a palaver!  And speaking of work.....I've gone and got myself a new job, wahooooo!!  I wasn't even thinking about it really and then a friend of mine txt me saying there was a role going at her place, 3 days a week and would I fancy it?  That got me thinking and by the end of the following day I was lined up for an interview.....I went in and got the job wahooooo!!  And now I really can't wait to get back to it :o)  It's about a 40 minute drive away near Tunbridge Wells but I'll be back doing proper IT as a SQL Server Database Developer.  It doesn't sound very exciting does it but for a nerd like me it is ha ha!!  I start on the 30th September which is when Little Woo starts school full time too so a big day for the 'Girls Team' that day!  :o)
So that's my blurb and now you're all up to date with me lol!  Onto my cards and these are the Good Luck ones I made the kids for school.  Really quick but the kids loved them!...
