Resurfacing after 2 Weeks!!

Hi to everyone, sorry I haven't been around for the last couple of weeks but chaos arrived!! The lane I live on had a scheduled (I got a letter) routine power outage which ended in total catastrophe!!! Every house on the lane experienced a major power surge, which in turn took out most of everyones household appliances, heating systems etc etc. I now have many of my worldly goods in the hands of a repair company, on behalf of my electricity supplier, and am awaiting return of or replacement. My crafting has therefore taken a back seat to all of that going on. Whilst that continues to be sorted, my life has at least returned to some semblance of normality, and I thankfully have got back into my craftroom. 
So called normality means I can now post my design team piece for this weeks challenge over at
this weeks challenge is a colour challenge 

I have used the following:- Tim Holtz "The Girls" stamp set stamped with white EP. Dylusions sprays, distress paints, mbossibilities folder,Tim Holtz butterfly movers & shapers, paperartsy background plate 5, free stamp from this months Craft Stamper magazine, paper ruler, crown is from a zip puller.
My card has been inspired by these colours
So to join us this week just use these colours (or some of them) on any type of project, and come and join us at crafts4eternity

  1. This is fabulous, I love it. Love the white with the colours you have chosen, and the crowned little girl. So sorry you have had such a trying time. Hope you get new appliances out of it. Good job it was a warm time of year to be without heating. Good luck,
