Penny Black Satuday Challenge- September

Well Hello Again, I'm back anybody miss me?
I did have a very good excuse as you can see in the photo our basement area part of which is set up as my craft area got flooded, during a torrential downpour. Man what a day from hell that was, my brother was at hospital( he's just had a knee replacement) so I was on my own to deal with it. 

The fire brigade lighting truck came but apart from shifting some tables they couldn't do anything else. I  was very fortunate to get help from a neighbour and he devised a system to drain the water out. So all in all it's taken a longtime to get things fixed and back in place. As you can see my stamps were all above the high water tide so they were safe Whew!!

Apart from that drama, Mum gashed her leg and it's taken a long time to heal and also I've been busy getting a new rose garden set up, just doing some planting now. I love Spring it's  my favourite season.

Back to cards here's my entry for this month's challenge of buttons & bows. Believe it or not the red apple is a button which was originally orange till I used my Copic pens on it. 
Hope you are all good and maybe I'll have some time to catch up on your blogs.

Cheers and happy crafting

It's just SOOOOOO good to see you back with us hun! But oh my, that is one heck of a catastrophe - I would have been devastated, and I bet you were too! So lovely to see your PB cards again, and this one is adorable. Great job with the little apple. Hugs Sxx
