As You Like It Challenge


As You Like It has a new challenge starting today and this fortnight we challenge you to use your favourite book for inspiration and please tell us why.

Struggled with this one as I have been so busy this past couple of weeks tidying my house up. New loft floored so at long last my junk has a new home, Im so happy all my rooms are now junk free, worth all the pain and sweat that went into getting some normality at last,  hopefully cleaning will be a breeze from now on lol! Need to rest for a few days now so I can enjoy time with my son who is coming home from Australia to stay and work again in this country meantime!
Being a crafter I decided to take inspiration from my craft paper books, especially my minds eye. This one is called 'Sunshine', love the colours of the papers, makes me think of the country and perfect for my man card which didn't go just the way I thought it would! Not sure I like that tractor die cut, maybe if I had had more time I would have tried giving it black tyres, who knows! Ill probably get some stick for making it a checked one lol!
