I'm sorry I've not been around

I know it's a long time since I've posted anything and so thought I'd let you know why, so you don't all think I've forgotten you and left. So where do I start?? Here's how the next couple of months are going to be - 
My parents have decided to sell the family and move and have found a buyer so on the 3rd May we are having a farm sale to sell off all the machinery and tackle.
The 10th May see's my Auntie and her hubby arrive from Australia for a month or so.
Then on the 11th May this year it will have been 20 years since we lost my sister. On the 12th May her daughter will be getting married and I am the one in charge of it all as Rachel lives in Devon and the wedding is here in Lancashire. Trust me when I say it's proving bloody hard work.
Next by the 17th May, moving day, the cows have to have been sold, the 2 sheep dogs and the cat sadly put to sleep, as they cannot live anywhere other than the farm and everything from the house put into storage.
On moving day, 17th May my parents have to move into a hotel as the house they are buying is not theirs til 17th June. My Auntie and Hubby then move from the farm to Dad's cousins, and Mum and Dad's labrador moves in with Me, Hubby and our 3 other labradors.
On the 9th June my parents celebrate 50 years of marriage and have a big party to celebrate.
And FINALLY on the 17th June they get to move into their new home!!
So my lovely DT bosses have given me a holiday as making cards is just not happening much with all this going on plus I'm waiting to see a specialist to sort out my double vision which means colouring is sooo hard to do.
So if you do get in touch with me for any reason, I'm not ignoring you it's just I currently have over 500 un-read emails and I have no idea when I'm going to get the time to just sit down and read them all.

Time for new lovely-ness at Teddy Bo

Today I don't have a card to share I'm afraid. I am struggling with double vision and awaiting an appointment at the specialist so I'm limiting my colouring.
I do however have the previews of the super duper new images from Teddy Bo

Did you notice that Memory box dies are now being sold at Teddy Bo.
I love memory box dies as they are so delicate.
I cut mine whilst using the cuttle hug plate from Cheery Lynn.
It makes delicate dies easier to cut.
Now please pop over to the blog and see what the team have got up to with the new images,
H xx
