Miserable Day xx

Oooh the weather is awful here and I realised this
morning that I hadn't actually posted owt for 6 flippin days - slap slap. Futher more, I realised
that I haven't actually made a card for over a week!!!! Well I haven't exactly been idle peeps cos I have been here and there.... but more about that in the next post (intrigue intrigue hee hee lol xx)

So to get me back into the swing of things I found a map and made it back to my craft room (without oxygen and using GPS - it wasn't too difficult) and did a couple of challenges.

The first one is PTW fab challenges using one of Katharina's awesome sketches. I used my brand new Martha Stewart doily lace edges punch which came yesterday. Kath I have to confess that I almost held out until this morning but, well you know.... I got to 10pm last night and it was sitting there practically begging me to take it out of the box. So I just had to oblige lol xx The papers are PP and the ribbon is Raspberry Ribbons. The fab glittery goodness round Kerry's Martha Ballerina stamp is cosmic shimmer glitter jewels which is made by Creative Expressions and which I got from Topaz Crafts on Saturday. I think it looks quite good on her dress.


Here is some more detail ....










The last one is for this weeks Tilda challenge and is again based on a sketch.
I have had this Tilda stamp for a while now but never used it before. The paper is one of my computer creations and if anyone wants a copy, just e-mail me and I'll send you the file. The ric-rac is Raspberry Ribbons and the teeny tiny little red buttons are from my stash.

Now I am a bit late doing this next bit cos I was tagged twice last week by the fabulous Dawn and Debby. Thank you for thinking about me girls xx The rules are .....
1. Link to the person who “tagged” you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post.
5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know your entry is posted on your blog.

So 6 random facts about me ....
1. I used to be in a band years ago. We weren't that good but boy did we have a laugh xx
2. I can't drink cold drinks out of a cup, it has to be a glass (truly weird!!)
3. I have 2 phobias, people puking and frogs (but not puking frogs!!)
4. I have had Crohn's Disease since I was 21 - doesn't interfe with my life cos I dont let it
5. It was love at first sight for me when I met Richard - I didnt even know his name but I knew I would marry him one day
6. I went to the wrong funeral once. It could only happen to me. I can laugh about it now but it was sooo embarrasing at the time.

So there ya go. Now I am going to tag ... Leann, Steph, Rach, Bev, Han and Jill xxx

Dull and rainy here..........I have had one of those days where I wish I had not got up.

First put the freshly washed bedding out (was nice and sunny) and decided to walk the dogs.....got caught in a downpour soaking me, the dogs and the bedding....Great.....
Got wet washing in, noticed dreadful smell in that area....sniff sniff here sniff sniff there....oh my god theres a dead rat in the water barrel (it has got a cover, so don't know how it got in there) so as you can imagine it was really great, getting the rat out etc etc now I still have the job of getting rid of a barrel of putrid water!!!!!It is at times like this I think....why on earth did I move to the country...lol
