Fall Willow catching leaves

Hello all.

Well, what a muddle. My bathroom looks like a war-zone. Upon removing the tiles the workmen found that the damp-proof course was failing and the walls are soaked. So all the plaster has to be taken off, a new damp-proof course injected before they can even begin re-tiling and putting in my new bath-tub. A good job we have a week's holiday coming.
I have had a new roof put on my shed and the handyman has helped me with some drilling (and yes, I know is sounds very wrong lol). He has put up all the nice things in Phoebe's bedroom (I am useless with a drill) - she'll be really pleased when she get's home from school.

I have done quiet a few things around the house which I have been putting off so I feel pretty good today. Phoned my mum earlier and my gran will be going to a recreation home as soon as her pneumonia is gone. She seems strong and in fairly good health but can't be asked to do anything - doesn't even want to get up. Hopefully that will change once she get's to the home.

So for today's card I have made this for FRIDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE .........

................ I have used yet another neglected stamp - as a matter of fact I don't think I have ever inked her up :(. I don't often follow sketch challenges as some of them can be too "fuzzy" for my taste but this one is nice and simple. Elisabeth Bell's images are so sweet and full of innocence.

Another beautiful card, love these papers on the kraft and Willow is perfect!
It's good you decided to redo your bathroom and they found that water damage now instead of later! Though not fun that your relaxing candle lit bath will have to wait a bit longer!
I'm glad your gran is doing well and hopefully she'll be happier once she is in the home. Take care and have a great weekend!
