We have our house back!!!

Our 3 grandchildren have all now gone home and we have our house back but its so quiet I do actually miss them!  We have great week and some lovely days out so I think they all went home happy.
In between doing all the washing today I have actually managed to put a quick card together.
I have quite a lot of digi images but dont always use them so thought it was time I did.  This is one of Sassyy Cherly's Digi images which I think is so cute.
Coloured with copic pens...backing paper is from Echo Park Country drive paper pad.  Pleated ribbon is from Stampin Up, I've also punches out 3 little flowers and added a bow using Vintage seam binding...
Just wondering about tackling all the ironing tonight to get it out of the way but it needs to cool down first.
I hope to catch up on some of your blogs also over the weekend..

Lovely card Anne, such a cute image. Sounds as if you had a lovely week but I don't think it's going to be cool enough tonight for ironing!! Unless your OH is going to act as punkah wallah:)

Such a lovely card, Anne. She is so cute! Lovely colouring with your copics and I love your pleated ribbon.

I don't envy you having to do the ironing in this humidity, Anne. Leave it until it cools own a bit xx

Hello Anne,

I know that feeling totally it's lovely to be straight and tidy again but it can also be very quiet after a house full.

A really gorgeous card here, hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
