Sketch This - Cards #69

Yet another challenge card from me today but it’s not been easy working in my craft room with the builders working right outside my window………I’m in the process of having my front block paved.

Some years ago when I started getting problems with my hip I had it crazy paved to save a lot of gardening. Then there was a problem with parking on our shared drive and I was forced to park on the front but the trouble with that was it was never reinforced to take the weight of the car. In time it all started to break up and the weeds took over. ….it looked a right mess.

I finally decided to get it sorted out as the longer it was left the worse it was getting.
They started on Monday when the weather was still quite fine here, so they made a good start.

Yesterday wasn’t so good because they were dodging the showers and the garden looked like this when they left.
We’re now into day three and it’s beginning to take shape.
Hopefully, weather permitting; they will start laying the blocks tomorrow.
Anyway, while they’ve been crashing and banging about outside my window, I’ve been very industrious and made a few cards but I can only show you the one I’ve made with the new template from Sketch This at the moment.
I’m trying hard to use up some of my old papers and dragged out the remains of the Rhapsody collection from 3 Bugs in a Rug.
