Put a little birdhouse in your soul....!

Hi everyone!
I have no idea how busy you all are but I am! Again! Idle hands do the Devils' work...or, so I'm told, so it's best to keep as busy as possible!

This fortnights' challenge at Crafty Creations Challenge blogspot is hosted by DT member Macarena and the theme is to follow the sketch.

Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Stamps who have an online digital store with lots of digital designers who create fabulous digital images! It's definitely worth having a look!

This card is created using the Bird House 1 image by Hope Jacare.

I used Spectrum Noir markers for colouring.
Paper and ribbon from my stash.
The flower came from The Ribbon Girl
The sentiment is from From The Heart Stamps
and the gemstones from Papermania.

I am utterly shattered! Oh, hello all!
It's true, I'm pooped! Yesterday I ended up running around (ok, ordering Mark to run around!) emptying cupboards and sorting stuff out from my bedroom and craftroom. Managed to fill the wheelie bins outside with loads of recycling tho so I must be doing well parting with things that I REALLY NEED!!!!
Honestly though, it's hard parting with stuff from way back when but it's necessary too.
So, what did I do? I photographed items that I hated binning so at least I can look at the lovely pics now and again!

I've hardly done any crafting at all lately and today I might just make up for it as I'm in a crafty mood!

The weather is beautiful - yep, the bedding's out on the line!- and I need to do some shopping but cannot be bothered going so I'm going to do it online! Yaaaay for the internet!
That frees up even more crafty hours too!

Oh, before I go, yesterday I managed to finish my cards for my entries into the cardmaker of the year 2014 comp. Go me!!! I know I haven't been crafting for a long time like alot of other people but I do like to have a go and the cards I've submitted are, at least, well made, if not winners. but, you have to be in it to win it so..... fingers crossed for me!
