What happened to my half term....

Good afternooon everyone

I am a bit worried to be sitting here and it is Sunday afternoon already. What happened to my half term.......and that I will be back at work tomorrow. I live on the border of Devon and Somerset and last week Somerset schools  were on their half term where as Devon schools were still in. I worked all through the week, teaching in various schools in Devon and tomorrow I shall be back to my regular schools in Somerset.

I did manage to finish sorting out my craft room though and I am very pleased with myself. It's amazing what crafting goodies I have found that I have bought and then put away.

I have managed to make a card in my clean and tidy space:

I have used this cute image of a boy on his bike from Hanglar and Stanglar. He has been cloured using copics pens and then mounted on several layers of card and papers from stash drawers (that seem fuller than ever) The sentiment (from Craftwork Cards) and has foam mounted to raise it up so it stands out. 

I shall be entering this card into the following challenges.
