Hot Diggity Dog Goes to the Seaside

I've been a very lazy blogger these past couple of weeks.  My attention has been taken up by a much bigger craft project, the final stages of the five year long renovation project that will result in a lovely little house. 

 The building work is finally finished and the grand clean up is well underway.  I have developed a passionate hatred of plaster dust!  

The first three coats of paint are on the living room walls and a fabulously smooth finish if I do say so myself.   A long way to go yet but it already looks like a lovely home in dire need of decorating instead of a building site.   

I'm hosting the latest Noah's Ark Challenge over on DoCrafts and it would be such bad form to skip a challenge I'm hosting so I made a point of putting my paintbrush down for one evening.  

I think it did me good to focus on something different for a few hours.  I'm missing my paper crafting already.  I can see a bit of an obsessive come back on the horizon!

I set a theme of transport for this one so how could I not use this gorgeous stamp!  It's getting on a bit now but it's still one of my firm favorites.
