Simply Saturday - How I have missed you :-)

Hellooo everyone.

Oh how I have missed my blog, bloggie friends and my craft room.

I have been suffering from some really bad head aches this past week or so, and really have not felt at all like crafting.

Today, after the clouds seem to have lifted a little, I decided to come to the craft room from some creative therapy :-)

I hope you have all been well.  I have tried to keep up with your posts, but know I am a little behind with visiting, hope to catch up soon.

I have been having a play with one of the new releases at Polkadoodles. The wonderful addition to the Work and Play Series - this is number 11.

This collection is also available as a full download - so no waiting for the postie.  Click HERE.

I used one of the pre-coloured design sheets and then also printed our extra of the Painter/Decorator which is also available as a single digi download too.

For the inside, I used the same papers and then also added some left over paint pots from the design sheet.

I love layering her up and have inked all the edges of all the layers with CTMH Sorbet.

Adding some fabulous tickets sentiments to the front (perfect) and some Flourish with a Bling Copper pearl dots.

Did you see the lovely new watermark - Nikky made us all a new one :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Ooh La La Creations - Challenge #180: Use a Pre-coloured Image (closes 24 May)

Crafts Galore Encore Challenge - Challenge: Anything Goes for May (entry #2) (closes 30 May)

That's it for today.  It is Andy's birthday, so we are off out for a family meal this evening.

Thanks for stopping by and continuing to support me and my blog - really appreciate each and every one of you.

Happy crafting.
