What A Rotten Week xxx

It was a truly rotten week. Talk about a bottle neck!!!!

Anyway my 'to do' list is looking a whole heap better and I feel far less stressed than I did this time last week!! Hoooorraaaahhhh xxxx

So despite me frantically e-mailing Steph on Sunday night to say that I didn't think I would be able to do anything for PTW (for the second week in a row, slap slap) as I was still working at 10.30 pm Sunday evening, I managed to find half an hour yesterday and did this for this weeks challenge which is based on one of the very talented Katharina's sketches. PLEASE don't look too closely at the colouring - of course you will, now I said that - it isn't as neat as it might have been, but like I say it's warts and all on here.

And there are a few warts in this, but hey ho!!!!

I got this Whipper Snapper stamp at the big craft fair at Port Sunlight on Saturday and I just think it is tooo cute. It was coloured (badly lol xx) with PMs - still loving them and just got my 5th set, naughty Dawny. You will see that I am still loving my MSBP as well - hee hee xxxx

The spotty paper is the most fab PP (Mini Little Big Dots - I love that download and use it so much) and the buttons and blooms are the wonderful Poppicrafts. The little sentiment is from a Woodware set I have had for years. I meant to add a bit of glitter but I was in such a rush that I forgot - dohhhh!!


Port Sunlight was completely fabulous. I was 'doing' Elzybells stamps for Creative Pastimes (which is pretty ironic I thought, as I had applied to go on the Elzybells DT but was rejected :( boo hooo lol xx). I have to be totally honest and say that I think these stamps are such good value for money and they stamp like a dream - no feathering at all.
I also got to meet quite a few lovely ladies including Shell and also my blog bud Pauline C who were both so lovely.

So that's that. I have missed my poor old blog and feel bad for neglecting it and I have no doubt missed out on a whole heap of fabulousnesss out there, so I am off for a good old nosey this morning and hope to catch up with everything, including doing some new challenges I've heard about, so hopefully there will be some cardage as well as waffle on here.

Lastly, this week I am going to try my best and answer the e-mails I have had, so please dont think I am being a rudey ignoramous or anything lol xxx

Loads of love and see ya soon xxxxxx
