With Sympathy

Evening All.
Well what a day it's been. My friend Chris has been round to finish fitting a door for me. I've been to a craft jumble sale, run by the local stitch and craft club, which is basically the same as a normal jumble sale except they only sell craft stuff - FAB!!!
Then I've been preparing to do a craft show tomorrow with the stock from my shop. I asked hubby to fetch me a display basket from the loft, and as he came down he noticed the flooring in the loft was wet, and discovered that the header tank had sprung a leak - Oh Joy, so I had to ring Chris, and he came rushing round to sort it out for me. So now we have a house with no hot water, until hubby gets the part for Chris to fit tomorrow - think I'll be glad to be out. Then hubby tried to put a new bulb in the light in my workroom and has somehow managed to get it wedged half in and half out, so it doesn't work but it's well and truly stuck. Think it's time to stop trying to do things today!!!!!
So I thought I'd share a card with you that my ladies made in the week, as part of the Hatches, Matches and Dispatches class.
The card layers are all Bazzil card, the sentiment stamp is one of my friend Lynnes - which is available at Sentiments For You. The image is from Sugar and Spice, and I have embossed it with Wow embossing powder, which gives a lovely glittery effect.
I'd like to enter it in the following challenges;
Lets Ink It Up - show us your embossing
Simon Says - anything goes
Polka Doodles - black, white and one other (glitter silver in embossing powder)
One Stop Crafts - clean and simple
Craft Your Days Away - black and white
Thanks for looking, and I'll be back soon.
Hugs Sharon x
