Carol's Sketch Fun

Morning Folks....let me warn you straight off....this is going to be a real manic week.....will explain in a mo.....but there is no way I could miss out on taking part in Carol's Sketch Fun.....brand new sketch challenge blog from my lovely Funky Hand teamie Carol ...such a lovely sweet lady....a mega talented cardmaker...and a bit of a dab hand at the old sketches and I have no willpower....there is also fab prize for one lucky winner.
 Papers & Topper: 3 Bugs In A Rug...Hoppy Bird-Day Collection
Button & Brads....Basic Grey
Twine from my stash
I didn't intend to flip the sketch....but dopey here stuck my topper in the wrong place and had no option.
Oh yes....this is going to be a mad..mad running at the last minute kinda week.....a real tearing the hair out...fingernails bitten to the quick...meeting myself coming back... kinda week.....WHY.....I am off on a little jaunt at the weekend with my little to stay with my nephew in The Hague for a week and I am trying to double up on all the DT stuff....schedule posts etc...just the usual manic cubbyhole stuff but x 2....and once I've got all the crafty stuff  sorted out...need to get Euros...Travel Insurance and clothes organised......I just know it will be a real seat of the pants what's new.   Am really looking forward to my craft free week...doing all the touristy and lunches at pavement cafes....the lazy holiday lifestyle but what do you bet by the second day.....the old crafty withdrawals will set in and I will be scouring the Dutch equivalent of the Yellow Pages for crafty shops.
Well I ain't got time to blether all day for our morning stroll.....grab a quick bite of breakfast and then it's back to the cubbyhole....oh it is such a hard life....catch up with you all later...Hugs Kath xxxxxx

  10. Hi Kath,

    Awesome card that sweet tree !!!


  11. Hello, I live in Belgium, but my parents live in The Hague. I can recommend Pipoos (just in case your withdrawal symptoms get too serious to ignore): Dagelijkse groenmarkt 33, close to the grote kerk ("big church") and the old city hall, in the towns center. I only visited once, but they were very friendly.
