CR84FN20

Hi there ...
It's a beautiful day here in Liverpool ... for the past couple of days we have had glorious sunshine and lovely warm temperatures ... It gets very cold at night but I can live with that ... Spring is definitely arrived and the birds and butterflies know it ...
 Yesterday I had my computer installed into my 'new' craft room ... which then prompted me to call my server as the system has been so ridiculously slow and as everyone knows ... these calls take forever ... the guy asked me to unscrew the phone line box and complete various tests ... I won't go into detail  ... suffice to say that it is impossible to lie on the floor and unscrew this box whilst holding a phone AND  read things on the computer screen especially when the computer is in another room!  Anyway, an hour later and it was all systems go ...  except by then ... my mojo had gone missing!
 I so needed to make something ... for my assignments ... for my group ... for my sanity! 
 Eventually came up with something for this weeks challenge at CR84FN ... this is the gorgeous inspiration picture ...




... and this is my card ...



The background paper is Core- dinations... the floral paper is Laura Ashley and the deep plum is BG from the Wisteria collection


Everything else is from my stash ...

I'm sooo glad I finally got something done ... I'll share some photos of my 'new' little space soon ...

Before I go I just want to say a Thank you to The Shabby Tea Room for awarding me a Terrific Top Three for my tea party box ... it was a great Birthday bash ...
Have yourselves a wonderful day ...

Till soon

~ Ros ~

It doesn't show Ros, apparently you got your mojo back right in time! It's a beauty again! Just look at it from the bright side: now you probably know you have muscles where you didn't know you even had them, LOL!
