Stampin For The Weekend DT Card

Firstly I just want to apologise to all my DT's and blogging buddies for being so quiet over last the few weeks. There has been alot going on to the run up of the kids going back to school and viewings on our house has kept me busy. Daniel started his new school yesterday and is now Boarding at a Special Needs school in Margate. Last night was the first night without him and it was very strange not having here. He'll be home for the weekend but doing his first full week next week will be the big test, I miss him loads already. On a positive note, he seems to be settling in well and life seems to be getting back on track so more time for crafting and keeping ontop of all your lovely blogs and DT's.
Anyway, heres my card for this weeks Stampin For The Weekend. This weeks theme is Teal, Pink and Orange. I've tried something a bit different, been seening quite a few cards call Scraplings. Basically using up any card scraps. Mine measures 2 1/2 x 4.25 inches. (sorry about the poor piccie). I have used a stamp from Kadoodle and coloured with Copics. The tree is SU and coloured with Green Smooch. This weeks sponsors are The Craft Barn and they are offering a £15 voucher, and we welcome Carlie & Lorraine as our guest designers. Do check out what stunning creations the rest of the DT have made.
BTW, we had an offer on our house yesterday so I'm going to be spending the next few days looks at property. Fingers crossed all goes well with the sale. So normal services will resume as of next week. Will be nice to get back to some normality and how I relish the peace and quiet!!!
Take Care and TFL!!

Definitely a tranny in disguise & do love the cat shoes - need to contact confused.com - however the colours are just great and do love the tree in the background.

Hope little one settles in, should do cos 9/10 they always try their best to make it home from home. And by the way 'happy house hunting' Liz x
