The check paper was some scraps left the striping paper is DCWV, the words printed on the PC came from 2 peas, PSX bear and little tingla stamped and coloured and those handy little tags from Stamps Away. Sorry about the pic being dark would you believe it was too sunny yesterday and washed out the colours now look at it today wet, windy and just plain horrible.
Hi Fran I haven't forgotten you've tagged me will work it out for tomorrow.

I've used my last coloured in Magnolia using Di Hickman Jan#4, I've used Dovecraft 6 by 6 papers, I think it still needs a sentiment and maybe a flower.

The little extra at Daring Cardmakers is a sketch because orginally Jo was going to set the challenge but she's unwell, Get well soon Jo. Now you know I love a sketch, well the circles turned into butterflies and had to pop a third on cos two just didn't look right. The large butterfly is psx and the words are a umounted stamp I've had for ages. Stamped with colorbox catseye chalks.
Not much happening here, I now have all the photos I need for my a-z and I've nearly finished another LO for MIL book.

Last day at the make it show possibly I wouldn't go today because I suffering a bit but we have a workshop and now that DD won't be with us I will get her some bits for her Birthday. It was lovely yesterday because all the major purchases were brought Friday and we watch several of the demos and there has been no panic about only have a day to do, see all and buy lots.
Now you know the saying things always go in threes, well while we were watching a demo lovely lady on the fourth dimensions, she split her chocolate all over her table so Sis helped to clear it and managed to get it all down herself, so thats one, DD split her orange juice, it shot across the table and caught Lyn, then last night while eating a chinese not sure how she did it but Sis managed to throw her wine up in the air and got covered head to foot in the red stuff. Good job Mr Grumpy is a carpet cleaner because her beige carpet has the measles.

The card on show is Di Hickman Jan #3 sketch, I thought it was the second one guess this year is going as quickly as last year. Scraps of chatterbox and DCWV paper, a whisper stamp that I eventually stamped straight and loads of bling.

This is a card for Samm's birthday challenge, check out her blog here but you only have till the 20th. Hot of the press papers and some pearlescent card, the magnolia could be one of those that arrived this week (have to be careful Sis reads this and she has a habit of dropping me in it).
So I have a list, well its quite short but I'm sure that won't stop me.
Another thing to sort out is this wireless thingy, I now have a lead but is it simply a matter of changing it over, oh no I have to find my PID and password to change the connection on the PC. I may be back later!

Busy making this card for My Paperworld sketch, used the scraps of chatterbox that I used last week, anita's best wishes stamp and stampin up doodle daisy, a bit bling brad and gems on petals are peel off love how they're seem to be all different colours in the photo but they are all the same.

I want you to create not just one but TWO cards ! But wait........there's more ! I want both cards to contain the same embellishments and papers, ribbons etc- but arranged in a different way for a different occasion....the only thing being different is the wording....I'll let you have different wording ! (How nice of me eh?) I'm well aware this is a really hard challenge, and that I have thrown everyone into 2008 off the deep end....but go on- give it a go - I DARE YOU !

So after stalling half the day I made the decision for the word Achievement then things just fell into place and because I had BG recess papers out already and the pics seemed to go well with them thats what I used. Loads of inking and journalling (most unusual for me).
I've used 8" by 9" card because I shall be binding it myself hopefully with the Bind it all and left an inch for coils but discovered half an inch would've done.

So the weathermen gave a weather warning for snow now I'm not sure about the rest of the country but we got about 30 seconds of snow and that was it.
On a sad note the mouse has gone to mouse heaven thanks to Sis who brought the stuff. If there was anyway we could be sure he wouldn't eat the house and wires he could've stayed.

So has anyone made any resolutions, I don't really bother but each year I promise to lose weight this year I must make a serious effort, to be honest I don't think its about what I eat more to do with what I drink. Not sure how I'm going to give up a nice glass of wine especially when I think the red variety helps with cholesterol, but needs must and next week I start thinking about healthy eating. Its no good starting now far too many goodies left over and anyone who knows me will power is not something I recognised.
