Have been up to the eyeballs this week, as we are finally getting started on house decorating. First room up is the lounge.

First two wall went fine, but have been at it today and have found as much plaster coming down as wallpaper........argh!! got a plasterer coming out to have a look! So glad I can come on here for a bit of normal xx

third post of the day............

Me again! Actually does it count as the third post of the day if the first one was at 3.30ish this morning (urgh!) Anyway, am hope from work, there is a chicken casserole in the oven and I am making the most of the fact that the kids are out with my step-daughter and hubby is still working, so its just me and nippy!

So I wanted to post another card here today, and this I made for the Bear challenge, over in the land of Docrafts, that I am hosting for the next two weeks. My theme is Beginning with B, and I think I got quite a few "B"'s going on here:

This little sweetie, I believe, is an Elzybells stamp. This is a donated image, which had been completely forgotten about, which is a bit rubbish on my part, 'cos he is adorable!  Anyway, i've coloured him with pro's, and found a complementary coloured bow lurking at the bottom of my ribbon box, buttons and brad from stash, the paper is from a Fizzy Moon stack and the "birthday" sentiment is cut from a section of a cuttlebug folder and rounded the corners (thats a bit of a favourite with me!)

 I would also like to enter this into these challenges:
 stampin for the weekend - ready teddy go
do you stack up - friendly critters
forever friends - embossing
crazy4challenges - .blue, white and one other colour
..............and apart from a bit of blog browsing, thats me for the day xx

Good Morning all xx

Well if you've my earlier post, you'll be glad to know I did get back to sleep for a bit........until the plinky-plonky music and the four-legged alarm clocks had other ideas, lol.

Wanted to add another card that was made over the weekend.

Im going through a bit of a LOTV phase at the mo, but you've only got to have a bit of a trawl around the land of Blog to see im not the only one. Coloured with my beloved pro's, cut and layered onto scalloped circle nestie and then doily, buttons ribbon and pearls from stash, the yummy gingham is once again a Bev Rochester freebie and have printed the sentiment using Tempus Sans font.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

Good Morning all, well it is sutpidly early 0'clock in the morning, and thanks the hubby having to get up and get off to work I am wide I thought I might just hop on the 'putor and do a few bits in the hope of getting weary enough to drop back off to sleep for a wee while, before I have also got to get up for work.

Havent had an awful lot of time this weekend to craft or blog, but I did get a couple of bits made yesterday, and this is one of them:

 This is my second entry in the here come the boys anything but a card challenge.

Well, here we are its Monday again and challenge day with The Cutie Pie's . Our theme this time is "Favourite Cute Stamp/Digi"..........this was a really tough one to choose, so after a few rounds of eeny, meeny miney mo, this is where I ended up:

best housework dodge ever!

this morning I was just planning a quick blog browse, and then get some jobs done when I was unfortantly (hehehe) districated by todays here come the boys challenge, which is "anything but a card". Well, there I was washing up and racking my brains on this one when I glanced over a bottle of leibraumilch on the side looked at me (dont worry, not in a "get my cork out and get guzzling" kind of way, more like an "oooooh, what can I do to make that look lovely") Anyway, the washing up got abandoned as I couldnt concentrate on doing it properly - best to leave it till later when I can "focus"!!! So this is what I came up with:

The bottle tags will be kept for Father's day - cant say the same for the bottle of Vino Collapso though!!

.........and now I really must go do some housework!

Sunday Freebies

Just two little ones today, hope you like:-

will be back with a card later xx
