365 Cards Catch Up Days 176, 178 & 179

We have had a lovely few days away in Suffolk with our son and daughter-in-law over the weekend. As their house is still being renovated, we decided to stay in a nearby hotel. The walls were being plastered, but things are nearly finished and once decorated I think that the house should look lovely.
Back home again and I'm trying to catch up on some challenges.
For today's challenge on 365 Cards a checkerboard background is required. This card is a thank you from my son and daughter-in-law for one of their very kind neighbours, who has been really generous since they have moved into their house, giving them plants and watering them when they were away on holiday.The challenge for Day 178 of 365 Cards - Back to School - came just at the right moment as a friend at the gym asked me to make a Good Luck card for a little one who is about to start school for the first time! He doesn't know whether to be excited or scared!
This is for the 365 Cards Day 176 Super Sketchy Sunday. I decided to use this sketch for a requested engagement congratulations card for a friend. She is wondering whether I might get a commision for the wedding stationery... we'll see!

I think I've caught up!
If anyone needs to know what things I've used for these cards, just ask, I think the post is long enough already! I don't want to bore you!
