Guinea Pigs!

Well hello there my wonderful blog buddies (assuming there are any of you left out there following my little blog)!

So much has happened whilst I have been absent, but the biggest news is we have moved house!!

As is usually the case Hubby and I don't do 'small' moves and this one was no exception!  We have moved from Warwickshire to Denbighshire!!!!!!

There is a long story attached to this decision, but we had reached a point in our lives where we didn't want a huge mortgage hanging round our necks and we were desperate to live somewhere with no neighbours (having had problems at both of our last properties).

So, we have only gone and bought a small holding just outside of Denbigh ~ YAY.

Of course the disruption of moving has meant that my card making has all but stopped, my craft room was all packed up and mostly still is, although I have dug out a few things.

Last week I was determined to make a card for someone back in our last village who has Guinea Pigs and this is what I came up with .....

The image was purchased from an artist on Etsy for a small amount (no more than a digi image would have cost) and meant I didn't have to colour it myself ~ cheating I know, but time was of the essence and I just loved the image.

The sentiment is from an old pack of Lakeland sentiments (remember when they sold craft stuff)?  The Guinea Pig paw prints are from a stamp set by Hero Arts called 'Animal Prints'.

I am hoping to get back up to speed with my card making, maybe enter some challenges, but for now I need hubby to re-erect my craft room and unpack all my stuff, which quite frankly took a back seat while the rest of the house got sorted.

Thank you for visiting (if anyone does) and I hope to go visiting a few of you also.
