A Catch Up

I have a stable internet connection at the mo so popped on for a quick visit. Once again though am pleading for forgiveness as I haven't enough time to visit you all right now. Today saw the start of the second week of four of the National Championships and I have been really busy with the rest of the Presidential team.
Also I have discovered that I am WELL out of practice at getting up at silly o'clock (6.30am) - and being on my feet for most of the day until around 7pm each evening - daft really cos when I was at work I was up every morning at 5.45 and regularly worked a 12 hour shift!! - So I have been really tired this last week.
I have a quick card to share - one that was in my drafts folder (brought some crafty stuff away with me but haven't been awake enough to do anything!).
This card was born when I was making a mess with  inks and somewhere in the recess of my brain I think it is probably a CASE of one I saw on Pinterest - so if it was yours I thank you for the inspiration!
Just my fave white linen textured card and a snippet of the same used to ink up the scene.
Heat embossed the stamp in Weathered White embossing powder and dabbed an embossing pen along the bottom before embossing again.
Sentiment inked in versarmark.

That's it from me - have to iron my shirt and whites for tomorrow!

Thanks for calling in - I hope it won't be too long before I can call on you all - in the meantime thank you for keeping visiting - I REALLY REALLY APPRECIATE IT!! xx
