A quick hello and some news ...

Hello folks!

A quick card today from me.  This is one I made last week with an image that had already been coloured up and sitting in my "to make" pile!

Before anything else, I will share some news with you all.  We have been currently living in the Boston area for the last year, having moved from Ottawa in Canada for my husband's work.  Last week we were notified that my husband is being laid off.  So in the space of 24 hrs our life has been turned upside down and we are now in the throes of organising the family's move back to Ottawa.  It has all happened very quickly and a little suddenly but it's not a bad thing.  My kids are thrilled to be moving back home and to their old schools.  We heard last night that we can get back into our own home (it was rented for 2 years but the tenants have found alternative accommodation after finding out our news).  So, as of next week I will be moving back with my boys.  I am now in the midst of packing boxes and trying to get organised.  So with all that said, I will absent from my blog for the next little while.

Back to the card, Tilda is coloured with copics and I used a very simple and sweet layout.  I love the effect of the banners and the crochet flower for the finishing touch.  The sentiment is one of my new die cuts I have just added to my collection.

That's all for now.  I don't have time to scroll through all the different challenges, LOL!  I do appreciate your visit though and I thank you for popping in and leaving me a comment.  Not sure when I'll be back so until then ... happy crafting!!

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear about your hubby's job, but at least you will be able to move back home, and it's always a plus when the kids are happy!
Gorgeous card, that's such a pretty colour theme - I'm not normally a fan of Tilda but this one's a real cutie! Hope it's not too long before we see you back in blogland :)
