So I've had a busy few days, took Emily to a birthday party on Sunday - which she thoroughly enjoyed, don't think I've ever seen her so bouncy and that's saying something with my bouncy girl!
Then yesterday I had to thoroughly clean my house and the holiday let as we had some visitors come to stay overnight. Not paying guests, but a friend of hubby's and his wife and little boy. They were meant to be here in time for dinner so I had to completely clear the dining room table of my craft stuff. Don't think we've seen the far end of the table for about 3 years! I found it amazing that all of my stuff on the table fitted into an empty microwave oven box. In the end they were delayed and arrived after dinner so we ate in two shifts, so all my efforts in vain. I'm off in a mo to put all my things back, I am getting palpitations not being able to see my craft mat and regular bits and pieces!
I almost had a temper tantrum at one point as the hoover packed up with the house not finished and I couldn't find what was wrong with it - I'm sure it eating one of the Christmas lights had nothing to do with it - so I gave up on hoovering for a bit and did something else until the man of the house came home to have a tinker! He took the thing apart, found bits that I didn't even know came apart!, and found - now you're not going to believe this - my quickie glue pen!!!! It appears to have been stuck in a pipe in the hoover for some time as it's rather scratched, but it works.
With being busy it meant there was no computer time yesterday and a late night but the friends have gone now, hubby has gone to get the little one from school and I've got time to blog!
So here is card, and this again is inspired by a card I saw on coops blog (I do love your cards Nic).
Simply Sassy - Season's Greetings; coloured with my Promarkers.
Die-cut out with, and mounted onto, nesties.
Swiss dots and a snowflake embossing folders.
The corner I got from the Lincoln paper show earlier this year (can't remember which stall!).
Ribbon from my stuff.
Craftwork Cards - card blank and sentiment.
Edged everywhere with stickles and highlighted her hair with Liquid Pearls (which got a bit smuged, hope it doesn't detract!).
So again I'm apologising for not getting round many blogs at all, I aim to fix that tonight and so I will leave you all by saying - see ya's later!!!
A challenge, or two:
The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 73; Cathy's Sketch (option something unusual - the colouring on her hair) 2nd entry
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Cupcake 172; Don't look at the light! (all the edges are Stickles glittered and her eyes are too - hope that qualifies!)
Make it Monday - Linky party
