PBSC May Challenge!

    Good Morning!
I should probably start today's post by explaining why I haven't had anything to share for a rather long time ...
I found out at the start of March that the house I'm currently rent was being taken back by the Landord, resulting in me having to find somewhere else to live. I've lived here for 8 years so as you can imagine panic set in! Instead of renting again myself and my partner have spent the last 6 weeks trying to obtain a Mortgage on a new build so that we could own our first home together. The stress that this has caused has been unbelievable and my crafty mojo soon disappeared. However, on Thursday morning we finally found out that we'd been approved although I don't want to say too much and jinx things, but it seems that there is now light at the end of the tunnel ... and hopefully my crafty mojo will make a full return soon too!

Back to the main focus of today's post and it's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE of 'Anything Goes or Clean and Simple!' 
I've gone with the Clean and Simple theme as I haven't had the time to sit down and make one of my usual style of cards, but it was nice to get back crafting for a little while at least.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges -

Such a striking and very brave CAS creation, can't imagine how tempting it was to add colour, many thanks for joining in with our 'Spring Blossoms' theme at Allsorts challenge.

Love the simplicity of this pretty floral card, Nat!
I do hope everything goes well for you with the house buying...I don't think we would have been able to buy if it weren't for having a council house (although you can't buy them anymore) as house prices are phenomenal in our area and developers tend to build pricier 4 bedroom houses!
Sending good thoughts and hoping that you're in your first 'own home' in the near future! Hugs, Lisa x
