Busy Bee - That's Me!!!!

Afternoon everyone.

First off, let me tell you I hate those days when everything happens at once; those days when you could have done to stay in bed. The reason why i'm whingeing is because this morning just went belly-up. House phone and mobile ringing in unison, door-bell, visitors.......grrrrr! Every other day this week, nothing will happen - so why does it have to all go off at once? I just cannot cope!

So, I did eventually sit down in my 'sanity' room and make this card to enter into these challenges :

Less is More Wk 159 challenge - Theme - Masculine

Artistic Inspirations - challenge #79 - Theme - Anything Goes/Masculine.

I hope it's suitable for both challenges!

Hi everyone (if there's anybody there do feel free to leave a comment!!!!!)

Today has been a peculiar sort of day - after getting up early and showering I did lots of housework and eventually sat down to make a card at lunchtime!
To be honest, the winter Olympics do take my mind off other things! It's hard to craft and watch bobsleigh at the same time
So, at some point this afty, I decided to make this card. I used my Spectrum Noir markers for the image and highlighted it with sparkly glamour dust.and I'm entering it into these challenges :-

Delicious Doodles - #75 Ribbon/Bling

Addicted to Stamps - #82 Make Your Mark

Just To Say!

Well, this is def-in-ite-ly the final card of the day!

So, this card is to enter the challenges at

One Layer Simplicity Challenge - #2 Can you repeat that?

I used the brightest inks I have on this stamp from my stash!


Hi all!
The weather here has been just lovely. Sunshine, blue skies and no rain or wind.
The sun really does put a smile on peoples' faces. Although it is quite cold it doesn't matter.
We went out for breakfast and enjoyed being out in the 'dry' for a change!

Now, this card is for the challenge at Craft Your Passion - Theme 200th special so anything from Feb 2013 to today.

I'm entering into challenge 170 July 8th 2013 - PATCHWORK BACKGROUNDS.

First of all may I wish everyone a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

I hope some lucky ladies received lovely gifts when they got up this morning.
I didn't :(  tee-hee
And the reason for this? Well, HE WHO WORKS came home last night (3 weeks away this time) and after a hot bath, food, coffee and having the TV remote to himself (!) he is STILL asleep!!! It's only 11.24 am GMT here! I know how hard his work is so he deserves the rest.

Anyhoo, we don't really 'celebrate' Valentines' but we do usually buy each other a card and some chocs or something! Actually, he usually goes one step further and buys chocs AND flowers!!!
If he has had time to buy anything that is!!!


RESULT!!! Yes, he did have time to buy something - a mahoosive box of Ferrero Rocher and a hoooooj bouquet of flowers! Plus a beautiful card (his words - "I thought I'd buy one with bits on the front that you can peel off and use"!!!) He knows me so well!


However, back to business - I'm entering both of these cards into challenges at :

Addicted to CAS - Theme LOVE
Artistic Inspirations - ~Theme Anything Goes/Valentine
