Flat Friends!

Good morning all!
What a lovely saturday morning it is! Well, it is for me and my bessies as we are off to a Spa for a full day of pampering with a little champagne and strawberries thrown in! I won't recognise myself when they've finished! My other half will think it's his birthday - a new woman walking through the door!!!
He'll know it's me though as soon as I open my mouth - I'm bound to find something to nag about after leaving him and the son alone all day!

Anyhoo, down to business!
As a DT member of the Friday Sketch Challenge blogspot, this weeks challenge is being sponsored by a fabulous digi store on Etsy called Flat Friends Boutique.
There are some wonderful images for sale and all at a very reasonable price so it makes sense to pop over there and have a look (and a purchase or two!!!)

I have used the Rainy Days image and coloured it with Spectrum Noir markers..
Pink and white gingham paper from Payper box.
Generice white and fuschia pink card.
Martha Stewart punch.
Glitter and Bling!

Friday again!

Hello all!
I hope you've all had a lovely week and you're now looking forward to a fab weekend.
I may not be in touch for the next week as I'll be away sunning myself and totally indulging my gluttony with foreign food and drink! Bring it on!
I'm really looking forward to this holiday as we are all (Me, Mick, Shellbell, Jay, Tree and Ken) off to Kefalonia for a change. We normally go to Zakynthos (and I'm hoping we'll go there in the Autumn) but as it's Shellbells birthday (a special one between 40 and 60!!!), Jay decided to rent us all a fab villa on the beach in Lourdas Village. It was pretty expensive but, hey ho, you can't take it with ya!!!
So, what usually happens when I go overseas for the sunshine? Yep, it always stays sunny here, so, I expect you'll all have lovely tans when i get home! (I will be completely tanned after 3 days - that's all it takes, lucky me!)

Good evening all!
Can you believe the weather we've been having this week? Amazing!
Trouble is though, I just haven't had time to go out in it! All this ebay selling and organising for my hols has left me no time at all to make anything this week! I did finish the scrapbook I made for my best buddy's birthday on Saturday. It's lovely! I really enjoy making them and even when I finish one I can't wait to make changes to it - or start again!!! New ideas just jump in and I've just got to alter things!
Yesterday, the only day I might have had time to sit outside for a while, it rained! Then it stayed hot and overcast until 5pm ish! When the sun came out I was too pooped to bother!
So now I'm lying on top of my bed with the fan blowing the already hot air around the room, but it's helping to at least keep my feet cool!!!!
Roll on Kefalonia where I can bake in the sun while lounging around the pool or on the beach. Can - Not - Wait!!!
So, I may not be back for a time! When I am, I will have lots of stories about my hols....yeah right! More like drunken tales of how drunk we all were!!! Tee hee :)
Have a great weekend.

Well, here I am again and I have to be honest.....I didn't think I would make it at all this week!
It has been "THE WEEK FROM HELL" (mwuahahahahahaha - evil chuckle).
We are to be moving house in the next 6 weeks or so and I thought why not start afresh in the new house by not taking any garbage (see "CRAP" for explanation) with us.
Whoa, hold your horses.....we don't have MASSES of crap, just letting you know we have LOADS of it and it has been a nightmare sorting through stufF but, being ruthless, I have thrown LOADS out!
 Ooh, I've also made £200 on ebay with clothes I don't wear (I buy them, don't wear them, sell them....!)
The last time we moved was 2 weeks short of 19 years ago! So, there's alot of things to sort out.
Anyhoo, in a large nutshell, I (with the help of the son) have done 75% of the clearing.
Son had to go into the attic (my health won't allow me that final nosey around up there!) but unfortunately son soon came down from the attic............yep, through the chuffin ceiling!
Now there is a black bag covered hole in the ceiling which I am claiming to be an art installation - see picture for huge chuckle!

So, what with everything going on I have had no time to myself at all - did I mention the laptop's playing up and my printer's broken?

Oh well, when you're at the bottom, the only way is up!

I'm Back!

Hello all!
I cannot believe it has been almost a week since I last posted here!
I have been seriously busy on Ebay! I had 96 items to sell (some Micks, some Marks) but to photograph them, write a sales pitch then upload the lot has taken me all week! Well, it feels like a week, more like 2 days really! Still, it hasn't left me any time to indulge my crafty passion so, today, I have managed to make a fab card for the challenge at From The Heart Challenges.
This month the challenge is Winter in July and the image is the cutest snowman, so, here is my take on it!
