Countdown begins here.....

WAH!!! The end of summer is fast approaching (Ha!! that's a laugh - Summer ended in June as far as I can remember!!!!) and the school uniform drill has begun :o( None of the jobs I had planned have been finished - most of them have been started, so that's some consolation! Back to school on Friday for me - the boys still have another week off but I'm going for a TE day.

But on the plus side, it means that autumn is waiting just around the corner and I LOVE autumn. I love it's coziness, the smells, the warm colours, hot puddings, toad-in-the-hole (made with vege sausages, of course!! LOL!), and new challenges. What a super link into my next news!
My wonderful teamies at TYI have got together with our lovely friend Clare and have created a fabulous new weekly challenge blog called KEEP IT SIMPLE! It's all about clean and simple cards which everyone loves to do from time to time, and our first theme is a Christmas card in traditional colours, and here is mine:

CAS cards are a HUGE challenge for me but I do want to improve, though I fear I may have overplayed the 'simple' bit with this card! LOL!! It's a big learning journey for me and I am really excited about the prospect of learning from others how to do this CAS thing, because it really is a talent in itself I think!

I do hope we have lots of players because I love to see CAS cards and I really want to pick up tips from those who do it brilliantly - plus we have some wonderful prizes to give away from fabulously talented sponsors, as well as the kudos of being picked as one of our top 3 players each week!! WooHoo!!!

So please pop along, give us a try - we'd love to see as many as possible over there!

In the meantime, I will be back later with my tag for this week. Have a great BH weekend! :o) xx
