The fabulous Claire is hosting our challenge this week and it's a CAS theme challenge. Well..... errrr..... I had to quickly make another card for this challenge this afternoon as I had completely missed the CAS part of the challenge and created a card that was anything but! So, off to my craft room and it was a great excuse to pull out a new set that I purchased from The Greetery called Springtime.
Here's our challenge:
On a personal note:
Well, Lou and I have a moving date and we are rushing to try to get everything packed for the move or for charity. We are also trying to do some things around the house to get it ready for sale. We haven't attacked the garage yet..... that's something neither of us is looking forward to. I'm trying to hold off packing my craft room until next week as I want to make a couple of last design team cards before I pack everything up. I'd forgotten just how much there was to do when you are moving. It's going to be a few days short of our 10th anniversary when we make the move. I can still remember the intense excitement as we prepared to make the move to our "new" home. It's been a wonderful 10 years, but I must admit, I am ready to downsize and have more time to spend doing other things. We have found an apartment to rent and the great thing about it is that it is on the river, right next to the walking/biking path and it has mature trees in front of it, so we should still get some avian visitors. It's also less than 10 minutes to any of the shops that we will need to visit, across the road from restaurants and coffee shops. We have gotten used to the fact that it takes us generally 30-40 minutes to get to most of the shops and restaurants we want to go to in this house - and that means major highways. So, it's going to feel very different.
We will certainly miss the quiet of the wetland at night - some nights it's so quite you can hear your heart beat. We are blessed to have been able to enjoy it for as long as we have, but are looking forward to seeing who might visit us in the trees in the new apartment!
Hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight and continued prayers for the people of Ukraine
