I was asked to make a 80th Birthday card for a Bingo lover and this is what I cam up with. I remembered I bought a pack of Tim Holtz ephemera in America and it contained a Bingo card, how lucky was that! The paper is Bo Bunny Timepiece. I diecut the sentiment using various dies, the lovely edge die is a new one which is free with the current Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I added the word house just for fun, from a Tim Holtz stickers pack, a brass key and some red pearls.

Life is very busy at the moment. Monday night we were out celebrating the first year of trading at a local coffee and gift shop which sells some of my handmade gifts. Tuesday night out for a meal and the theatre to see The Bodyguard musical, which was absolutely brilliant. Today we are off to see my Mum to measure her new home for curtains etc and go to buy lots of the incidentals. She should be moving in a couple of weeks so it is all systems go to get everything delivered, carpets fitted and everything in place for her. On top of that I have a craft fair next Wednesday and the hospital shop next Friday plus orders and magazine work to do. 

Sorry I am a bit short of commenting time at the moment, fitting it in where I can but I do have some lovely candy on offer. Thanks for all your continued support xx

The card is a great design for a bingo lover.
You seem to have an awful lot on your plate at the moment. Hope your Mum's move gets sorted so that she can settle into her lovely new home.
I agree with Kath - don't forget to make some 'me time'.
Take care.

Life gets hectic at times but it will all work out in the end, your mum will soon be settled in her new home too.
The bingo card is perfect for this theme and that is why we crafters hoard everything because you never know when you are going to need it!
