Well folks all I seem to be doing at the mo is apologising for my lack of blogging! I really am not up to much at the mo and life is just getting a bit too much in the way. I was looking forward to this wk with hubby being on nights and me being able to craft into the wee hours but this is not to be! I am stuck with, yes you guessed it, more sick kids! In the last 5 wks there has been about 1 or 2 days where noone in the family was sick and it's really getting to me at the moment! I managed to get my son back to nursery last wk after nearly 3 wks of sickness and now both my girls are sick. I feel like a washer woman with all the laundry going in and out and am just a tiny bit tired of clearing it all now!
I also have the most ginormous hole in my roof! Actually its a great big roofless dorma and it does look fab but it has a mass of tarpaulin on it to keep out any rain (none at the mo!) but it sounds like we are sleeping in a tent on a very windy day lol!
I have managed to make a card for the Divas by design new challenge which is to use die cuts and/or punches although I'm not that thrilled with it!
I have used scraps of paper from shabby princess, nitwits and Robyns fetish and an image from our fab sponsor Stitchy bear and have followed the sketch at Crazy 4 challenges although I turned it on its side. I have used nesties dies and mariannes flourish die for the theme and have added corner metal scroll and butterfly from e crafts with flowers from wild orchids, sentiment from waltzingmouse and gems from stash.
I have coloured my image with prismas and used spiced marmalade distress ink. I wanted to highlight our sponsors more but my printer went funny and wouldn't print out the sponsor paper so I have added a couple of cards previously blogged onto the challenge blog made with the sponsors images too.
I also want to enter this into Pear tree designs stamp something challenge, Craft your passion use red, the crazy challenge beautiful women, Delightful fun in the sun and crafty pads bold and bright challenge.
Please drop by and check out the superb creations by the other DT members! I am also sorry I haven't previewed any of the new crafty sentiments xmas images but you can see them here from the other DT members. Hopefully some inspiration will drop in my lap soon and the kids will get better (they are even missing sports day tomorrow because they are too ill!)
Thanks for dropping by and big hugs
