I have had the most amazing 10 days!
I will tell you all about it at the bottom of this post!!
We have a new challenge starting today at
The theme is Traditional Christmas Colours.
I have chosen to use a pre-coloured image from our Sponsor
It is called
The Most Adorable Snowmen.
It is also available as an outline digi.
I think you would agree, they are rather adorable.
I cut them out and used 3D foam pads to lift it off the background.
The gorgeous backing paper is also from our sponsor.
The 'snow' is American Snow Writer with Ultra Fine Glitter on top.
The sentiment is a very old stamp from my stash. I have heat embossed
it with Detail Gold Embossing powder.
The very generous prize from our sponsor is
$15 Gift Certificate.
Check out the stunning images and papers available here.
So get making your entries for this great challenge.
If you need further inspiration, then pop over to our blog and you can
see the stunning images used by our talented Teamies.
Now for my news!
When we went up to Suffolk for the second week of our holidays.
We went, not with 'holiday eyes', but with
'would we like to live here eyes'!
The answer was 'YES'!!
So we registered with some agents in Halesworth and Beccles.
We came back home on Friday and on the following Thursday,
we had 2 Estate Agents around to value our bungalow.
They both priced it way above what we expected!
The next day, I spotted a bungalow that seemed to have everything
we were looking for, on Rightmove.
Our friend in Beccles went to look at the village where it was.
We then made an appointment on the Monday morning,
for him to view the property on our behalf.
He phoned us straight after seeing it and said
we should get straight up there to view it, as there was lot of interest in it.
The agent we chose to sell our bungalow, was the man that sold it to us,
6 years ago.
He was amazed what we had done too it.
He was coming back on Monday at 2pm, to take photos and measurements.
The office phoned at midday and asked if I could do a viewing at 1.30pm
Of course I said yes!
They came, loved it and said they wanted it.
The agent came as they were leaving and they told him they wanted it!
They then went off for a chat.
They returned 5 minutes later and told the agent,
they wanted it and for the full asking price and off they went!!!
We were both shocked, as it wasn't officially on the market yet!!!
So in 40 minutes it was sold!!!
We went up to Suffolk on Wednesday to see the bungalow.
A 3 1/2 hours drive!
It was the best we had seen and in a lovely village, in a very quiet close.
We went to the agent later and put in an offer, which was accepted and then drove home!!
It was like a whirlwind.
So we are on the move, hopefully by the end of August/early September.
I will let you know how it is going.
Thank you for stopping by and hope I haven't bored you with my long post!!
