Getting Fresh

Hi Bloggers,

It's been a busy couple of weeks for me since I got back from overseas - last weekend was spent by the beach in a house with 17 other lovely ladies for a friend's Hens night. Somehow we ended up in a club at the end of the evening. Which would have been fine if the music had been circa 1986. However, since all the girls there were young enough to be our daughters, it didn't take long to leave and continue the partying back home. In our pyjamas. With the hot chocolate.

Old. Me?

It was also Father's Day here in Australia on Sunday - and I realised that I'd made a card for my husband but not for my lovely father-in-law. Oops! So, here's a belated Fathers Day card based on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches:

I'm really struggling to get back into craft mode at the moment. I looked at a scrap sketch the other day and not a single thought popped into my mind (nothing unusual there then) so I think I'll be taking a break from the scrapping for a while.  Who knows, maybe some inspiration will hit me in the next few weeks but for now I'm going to concentrate on the cards.

Hope your mojo's flowing!

Thanks for stopping by,
