Bingo at Creative Inspirations

Goodness me where is the time going?! I cannot believe how fast my days disappear and before I know it I have had no time to craft! I am slightly scared that xmas is creeping up on me waaaaaaaay to fast and I have really not made hardly any xmas cards!
I am also slightly fraught at the cost of such said seasonal event too! Especially as yesterday was just a major disaster day in our house! After 2 days of constant rain the roof decided to leak in Hiolette's room, this is down to a slow leak through the loft conversion. So we had to move the girls in together and are still waiting to have someone out to fix it but it does mean a full re decorate as much of the plaster and wallpaper is ruined and we have yet to establish if the carpet can be saved.
Then when I took the dog for a walk and hubby was upstairs, Hiolette decided to put the Wii remote through the TV completely ruining the LCD and taking all hope of a picture with it so now we need a new TV too and this one was not cheap! I have a feeling santa will be travelling light to our house this year!
Enough of my moaning and on to my card for today!
Over at Creative Inspirations we are sponsored by the brilliant Kenny K and we have a bingo challenge for you (I will let you hop across to check it out) but I have chosen to use blue, flowers and ribbon as my Bingo line....
I have chosen to use Tim Holtz shabby chic papers for my card with some lilac Jute from WOC, flowers from WOC and Kort and Godt (at Joanna Sheen), a Holtzy frame on a LOTV sentiment and a beautiful Butterfly from Kay'sKK. I have of course used crackle paint on everything and my scrabble tiles were a free download.
My image is of course from the fab Kenny K and has been coloured with prisma pencils.
Do check out what the rest of the teamies have done and don't forget there is another new challenge over at Divas by design today too (I hope I can join in later but am at work all day today!)
Thanks for coming by
Big hugs

My goodness Rebekah that post left me breathless - you are in the thick of it right now aren't you!!

I hope nothing else goes wrong for you - and I'm afraid I'm a head in the sand sort of person when it comes to Christmas - it doesn't happen until 1st December, still will have plenty of time to worry and stress then!!!

Stunning card, as always, love the colour scheme and embellies.
