Caffeine Junkie!

Hi Everyone, do I need the caffeine! We have just cleared the attic, and it seems that my son has more up there than we do! It's a job trying to get him to throw things! Oh well.

The kitchen has had a clear out, so much china, there's only 3 of us and I am still holding stuff for the 20 odd we used to cater for when family came to stay with their little ones. The charity shops have had a field day. I may still get rid of more after the new kitchen is fitted and I start putting it all back and realising that I really DON'T need it. LOL. Everything is being delivered on the 11th and they start fitting on the 15th, so nearly at the end, of a LONG haul. THEN it's clear and paint each room. Hopefully we will be clear and finished before Winter so we can batten down the hatches and cuddle up warm and cosy and clean LOL.

Anyhow on to my card which started me moaning.

Luckily I had some magazine freebies recently that fitted the bill, so I stamped yep! real stamping with  my platform. not too difficult, but here it is.

Hay! Scarecrow

Hi Everyone, a break in work and sorting, still a lot to do UGH! with just a couple of weeks left to clear it and hubby's eyes still not good, in fact a visit to A&E to check if all OK.

I'll try and catch up with you all when all the "panic" is over.

I hope you are all dry and not affected by the awful weather which has been happening both sides of the pond.

Anyhow, enough of that here is my card for the Outlawz  Progressive Challenge.
