here is lewis getting ready...set...go!!

............................ waiting for his sticker after finishing the race!!

..while i am sat here now waiting for ikea to deliver my furniture...... carpet was fitted monday, and most of the furniture is back in place , (including all my craft stash , all in new places , just need some new boxes for storage , feel another trip to ikea coming on) feels so much better, although we are sat on deckchairs until the new sofas arrive this week!!

today i am showing a birthday card for a dear crafting friend ~ although i had very little craft stuff i can still use at the moment ~ it was good to sit down and create the other day!!
i have used the sketch over on CREATALICIOUS CHALLENGE#11 ~but now i can see i have not done the other part of the challenge which was "stitch it up" (use stitching) ~ guess my brain is not in full crafting mode!!
used more of the papermania papers, ladybug and friends stamp, oval nestabilities, more card candy and wording by cardwork cards ~bit of glitter!

well finished the decorating ~ now moving all the furniture around the house to make room for the carpet to be laid next week.
