Catching Up...(be warned it's a long post)

Wow! That was a busy week, starting last Friday with us having our 3 grandchildren to stay until Tuesday (son & DIL were at a wedding but came back to ours to stay on Sunday night too) & then work has been ridiculously busy & short staffed, with 2 people on holiday & one person off sick (& that is nearly half our team). So I am trying to have a catch-up with everything this weekend.  Starting with Sentimental Sundays challenge which this week is "Child's Play" (with a sentiment) & I used this cute coloured image from TPS called "Happy Times", the papers are digi (I have a new printer at last) & I finished the card with string, die cut banner, greeting & staples.  We are sponsored this week by Sweet & Sassy & I hope you can find time to join us :o)

Ooooh & I must say that I have my PC back!  Hooray! My clever son Craig fixed it & everything is just as it was before it went bang :o)  

The challenges:
One Stop - Anything Goes
City Crafter - Summertime
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everyone - Anything Goes
Crafty Calender - Anything Goes
2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes For Kids
A Little Bit Crafty - Summer Sun

As we had a busy weekend/week I didn't have time to post my last week's Sentimental Sundays DT card which was for the Anything With Wings challenge & sponsored by ADFD & I used their "Frosty Snowflake Fairy":

This week I also made the very hard decision to leave Di's Digi Challenge DT.  I've worked with Di for years, even before she started the challenge blog & thought I'd post a couple of my favourite cards made with her gorgeous images:

& if you're looking for more challenges Di's challenge that started yesterday is "Stitch it Up".  Well if you got this far, I'm impressed & thanks for looking! Enjoy the rest of the weekend & have a fab week xxx

Wow, have you ever been busy--makes me tired just thinking about your week, lol! :^):
So glad you got your computer back--all your images are still there--yay!!!!!
Your first card is too cute--love the fun image, the design, DP, and great embellies! :^)
Your second card is so pretty, with that sweet image, great coloring, and gorgeous papers!
So sorry you are leaving Di's DT. You make such darling cards with her images! Love both of these! :^)
Hugs, Penny
Have a great week, Tracey!
