May Life Be

I hope Mr Blogger love me cos I've schedule this post, we are taking back my MIL today and although she is a lovely sweet lady I've found it very hard to craft while she does nothing (she has no hobbies) and even though she is very compliementary of my cards I still feel guilty.
My Sis lent me a lap tray which has been brilliant because it means I've been able to colour and cut out images in the front room which has enabled me to be able to post a card each day.
Like this Tilda, she has been coloured for a couple of days just waiting for the right challenge like the Just Magnolia Challenge which is a sketch. I did find this sketch hard though shouldn't have really but I had the idea of the sentiment and everything else I had to try and work with it.
The papers are Bo Bunny and the I used the stampin' up punches for the spiral notebook and the tab.
I'm really missing catching up with everyone blogs feels like I'm missing out but I look forward to when I can grab a mug of tea and finally catch up.

Lap tables are great to use for crafting, I use mine in bed when my back is troublesome :)

Lovely card and a great sentiment. Hope you get to catch up with your crafting and blogging. Much as it is nice to have company we crafters do miss our daily crafting and blogging don't we. I have only got time at the moment as we are having a new carpet laid and I can't get to finish the housework until it's done. Marianne x
