*If you're looking for my Passion for Promarkers DT card, please scroll down a post!*
Good morning, dear Bloggers! Well, firstly, I must apologise for my absence - I was hoping that it would be because of the fact that the house would now be nearing completion, when the harsh reality is that they haven't even started yet!! It is the school summer holidays and I, as the title suggests, am in a total state of limbo! Half of our belongings are packed away in various places and my crafty stash is still partly in the shed, and with not knowing when the work is likely to start, I am reluctant to unpack it all! I had been so good, getting ahead with my DT cards and making sure that all my card orders were up to date and now, I am back to square one, trying to get ahead again in case work suddenly does start! We are waiting for the gas board to come and connect us to the mains - our wonderful council only put the order in about 5/6 weeks ago, despite knowing since last August that we wanted to switch (as you can imagine, not very happy with our local council at the moment!). So, I'm afraid that it means I will likely be sporadic in my posting for the near future!
On the plus side, I have managed to sit and colour in a few of the CAS cards that I printed out when work was first supposed to start, so I do have a little craftiness to share with you all today!...

Hair : Linen, Buttercup, Champagne, Sandstone
Pram : Tea Rose, Cocktail Pink, Watermelon, Antique Pink, Primrose, Buttercup, Tulip Yellow, Sandstone, Caramel

MayZArt. We are big Doctor Who fans and the tenth Doctor (aka David Tennant) was probably one of my favourites, so I just love this image! I forgot to write the colours down for this one, but I think that they were :

So there we are, like buses, you wait ages for one and then 3 come along at once! (Unless you live where we do and then you're lucky to get one every 2 hours!! lol!) I do hope that work starts soon - most people will be glad when it's finished, I'll just be glad when it starts! I will try to post when I can and I do keep dropping by you all to see what you're up to. Enjoy the rest of the Summer and hope to see you soon, big crafty hugs,
