Back on board with blogging!

Hello all!
well, it has been a long time since I hit the "New Post" button here!  After a 3 week vacation while our worldly belongings were chugging across the Atlantic, we then arrived back at our house near Cambridge and have spent the last few weeks in a flurry of cleaning, redecorating, shopping, and unpacking.  The house now looks as if it's ours again and although we still have to tackle the jungle that exists at the the front and back of the house, we can actually see the wood for the trees or in our case, the fields through the cut grass!
 
    As it's a Friday, that means it's time for another challenge over at The Outlawz and there's been a change for the Friday group - we are now a colouring group without restrictions, not just alcohol markers so we're hoping to see more of you join in the fun.  Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up , with a generous prize of 2 digis  - another great reason to play along!

        The theme this week is "At the Beach/Pool" so dig out those stamps or digis and join in!  For my card, I kept it simple and used a digi from Create with TLC , a pair of flip-flops and a Silhouette Cameo cut-out sentiment.


I added a few ink splatters and a couple of stick-on pearls just to jazz it up a bit.  Entering this into the challenges at Addicted to Stamps and More , Crafting with Dragonflies , Fab 'n' Funky , Ruby's Rainbow , Whimsy Stamps , Crafty Girls and Charisma Cardz.


Thanks so much for popping in!  I'm looking forward to visiting all my favourite blogs and seeing what everyone has been up to over the last few weeks :)
