Carnival Balloon from Simply Sassy

I have been a bad blogger the last few days - seem to have lost the will to craft or do anything really - the house is a tip and the wasing and ironiong are piling up. Think I just not got rid of that bug I have had and Graham is off work today with the same symptoms so know now it was a virus I had.  Feel wabbit (some of you may know the translation but if not it means knackered, tired, exhausted, etc).

Today's card is for the following challenges ~ Sentimental Sundaes 'Inspired by A Song'~ The Carnival Is Over (by The Seekers); Sketch Saturday's current sketch (beautiful sketch girls!) and Wee Memories Anything Goes.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend - but where has the sun gone today? If you have it, can you pls send it back to me in Enfield pls as I do not like the rain - tho my plants love it.
