Getting better

Hi all

So here I am again, trying to get back into a bit of routine, not that I would normally post at a weekend but that's sort of beside the point.  It's more that I'm actually posting!

Anyway, been a quiet weekend - Emily and I spent Saturday at a friends house, Emily had a wonderful time with her friends and I had a lovely chat with their mum while the kids caused chaos!  Today has just been a pottering sort of day, getting ready to go back to school tomorrow.  Emily is really looking forward to going back, apart from she has to do a show and tell on Friday and she has no idea what she will be talking about!!!

Anyways, here is my card for today:

Just the one shot as there isn't much to show, and I also had to photograph it in a bit of a hurry with Emily peering over my shoulder!

I used:

Simply Sassy - Cinderella (still doing my stamping each image twice routine);  coloured with my Promarkers.
All the papers are from a Basic Grey pad; Sultry
Circles cut with nesties, border with one of border dies.
Sentiment is from a Papermania range.
Card blank - Craftwork Cards.

So hope everyone else is having a good weekend - and I must apologise again for not making it round everyone's blogs - I'm planning a massive blog hopping session next week (after the massive clean up session on my house! and the Christmas present buying session - I am going to be busy aren't I!!!!).

Anyhows, thanks for continuing to read my waffle and I even think I have a couple of new followers - but I'm not sure as the numbers keep changing on me.

See you soon,

A challenge, or two:
