Argus

Good morning all.

What an awful day we are having (yup - I am still talking about the weather lol). Heavy rain, blustery wind and it's cold. Just the right kinda weather for the kids going back to school. Phoebe did hold on to my hand very tight this morning but guess what....... no tears. I am so proud of her.

Ben and James are still home - James goes back tomorrow, his last GCSE year and Ben leaves on Saturday to start his independent life as a student. So it might be time for me to look for a part-time job - just to get me out of the house a little.



Today's card is for a brand new challenge and I thought it might be fun to play along. Firstly because I love the colour combo and secondly because an idea sprang into my head the minute I saw the challenge. Don't worry, it's just a temporary glitch, my brain isn't usually this fast lol.

Argus is one of my favorite images and you did a great job with him (or maybe it's a her since it's pink). Glad you joined us for the first digi challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps this week. Hope you can come back and join us next week too.
