Random days!

Well just a quick note, I've spent the afternoon in Carly's craft room but no crafting! Shes been working on a card but im playing with The cats! I'm completely uninspired! I spent all weekend sorting & tidying & reorganising my craft room and I've got everything where I want it but now I'm not wanting to mess it up!! Typical!
Shes wittering on trying to convince me about smash* books but im not buying it!!! Lol
Anyways Here's a random pic of Carly's strudel cat... Awwww

This weeks challenge over at charisma is stitches!! I don't have a sewing machine so I've gone for faux stitches, I got very impatient doing it tho! Lol!
I decided to kind of ghost colour this image, I wanted it to be a bit more subtle and try a different approach, I'm quite pleased with it actually!
I even used brown (not like me!) AND 2 papers!! What's wrong with me! I've only recently started layering papers for some reason I find it difficult, but it's getting easier! It's more the layout I struggle with rather than matching them, I haaaaate wonkyness!! Lol jaunty angles just don't really work for me, I'm forever straightening them! But that's something else altogether, 2 papers and brown is far enough out of my comfort zone for now ;) lol

Well I'm using my phone at work again, bad cat!! I'm so freaking bored tho!! And there's loads to be doing :( best get on with it 'spose... *sigh*

Cornwall times!

Woo! It's my long weekend that starts on a Sunday! Lol I'm lazing in bed in Cornwall land deciding what kind of pasty I should have for lunch! Nomnom! :D
We've trekked all the way down here to visit my in-laws and our not quite born yet godson & his yummy mummy!
However driving down here last night means we missed x-factor, and having to (don't want to!) go for a drink tonight means well miss it again!! And we didn't see thurs/fris xfactor USA (dale loves it! Lol) so were well behind!!

But so I don't get too behind in my crafty I bought my promarkers & loads of stamped images! Heehee!

I better get up and in the shower because the sooner I do that the sooner I get a pasty, and I'm allowed to go to the range today :) woooo!!!

Its My dads birthday!!

Woo! Happy birthday daddy!! Not that he will ever see this, or even knows what a blog is! Lol I thought ild share his card, a very scary 8x8! He likes frogs and I love this sentiment! Always makes me chuckle!

I've had a lovely day nattering weddings with my friend Claire, who only has a few weeks until her wedding! Excitement!!

And then my dad and I exchanged gifts as he bought me a fab handcrafted wooden cat back from Bermuda! Batman wasn't sure on it tho, he had a good ol' sniff, Then ran off! Heehee!

I'm (fingers crossed!) dragging My poor husband to ikea now... Well I do need another unit and some more boxes for my 6x6 papers!!

Anyway, here's my dads bday card :)

My second post!!

Okay so maybe I was naughty and didn't post over the weekend, but that's because I was busy at work sat, went to help out a friend sat night, work Sunday then I had 2 nights worth of xfactor to watch!!

Last night my friend Alison popped over, we coloured in, played with ribbon and papers but didn't actually complete and cards to show off, but I'm working on a design for Charisma Cards Challenge blog that is a little bit out there!! Can't wait to finish it tonight!!

The other reason we didn't get anything finished was because we made some sweets!! Yummy green hard boiled sweets! They are so nice, and I'm gonna perfect the process and that's my Christmas gifts for the family this year sorted! May even have a go at candy canes, it's really not as difficult or complicated as I thought! Happy days!

Anyhoos I am at work, hiding behind the till with my iPhone, hopefully this post will work!! I'm off to tidy up a bit before lunch... Nomnom
