Aha - fooled you!

Hi blogworld

I bet you thought it was Thursday again didn't you seeing as how I've been posting weekly (or less) recently. But nope - it is 'only' Tuesday and I've posted twice in one week - how good am I??

So how are things going for y'all then?  We've had a marvellous sighting here - the lesser spotted builder :-)  Unfortunately it was only a limited sighting - he appeared on Saturday and disappeared again very quickly!!  Seriously though, it's all a bit long winded, he's now gone away with the plans and promises that he can lay his hand on a chap who can come out to start the job, probably!!  I think I'm just going to stick my head in the sand and be grateful if I get a craft room and new kitchen by this time next year!!!

So in the meantime I'm racking up the old card-making pressure - I've got a couple on the go and one I made earlier, and by earlier I mean earlier I coloured the skin agggges ago.  Was practising and then didn't get round to finishing her off until now.

I used:

Digi image:
Some Odd Girl - Angel Kaylee
Sentiment - Fiskars set


Cosmo Cricket - Togetherness

Anything else?
Create and Craft - Gem Flourish
Stickles glue

So whaddya think then?  I think my 'style' if you can say I've got a style - is changing a bit.  I haven't added full on flowers to anything for ages - maybe I should try that next!!

So there we go folks - I hopes to be blogging regularly again now and not builder angst either, I'm doing an Emu on that one!

Now I'm going to see if I can find a challenge or two - it's been even more aggggesss since I regularly joined in with anything.

Hope everyone in blogland is good too,

PS - I think I've found a challenge this fits - Some Odd Girl Blog: May challenge.  Ladies - I've only just stumbled on this challenge and think I've got the sketch right.  Feel free to delete me if I'm too far off piste for you ;-)

Wow a rare spotted builder! I'm more 'twitchy' than a twitcher! Hope they start to nest in your house soon!
I've given up with mine, think I'll have left home before he comes back!
Super sweet card, love the sentiment and I think its good to have different styles, not sure if I actually have one!
