everyone, what do you have in store today? for me it is wrapping a few last prezzies, icing a gingerbread house with my little A, popping in to see friends (very quickly) then................ relax (bliss!) Mandy x
Yes, I've had an incredibly crazy stressful week! Last Tuesday, my mum had a fall and has broken her wrist. She's still in hospital and cannot return home until she has spent some time in a rehab place. So, I spent two whole days in hospital with her whilst everything was being plastered etc, they had to re-do the plaster 3 times, ouch! We have an extra doggie in the house now, a very naughty little girl who doesn't do anything she's told!
Then it was Lily's craft fair at the weekend, so it was crazy running around, getting no sleep for days and then doing the fair. Sunday I had to go up to hospital again (it's a hour's bus ride away from my house) then............................. breathe. yesterday, i had some time to myself and at last some creative time. Today, I'm back on the merry-go-round.
Here's a card I made my mum yesterday to cheer her up a bit.
this week on SPA the theme is CANDLES. I am a tad late, too many crazy things to make and do for next weekend. But I have managed to make 2 postcards this week... both using images from The Octopode Factory....
one of the new design team members over at Silly Dilly Beans! I'm so so stoked that Megan picked me, she has some wonderful quirky designs. Go over and have a gander at her digital stamps they are fab AND she has a sale on at the moment!
There's a little angel from America who wrote me a special little letter. I've made this card for her and I'm entering it into The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge. The theme is WINGS this week... so come on over and join in!
On SPA this week, we are remembering with POPPIES. Here is my entry, I've used the poppy image from The Octopode Factory which I layered up on the card, and I've also made a poppy to wear using the same poppy image, but layering it up and spritzed it with glitter.
On a lighter note, here is my little Myrtle (she IS tiny although not as small as Petrie) pretending she is a meerkat. This is her fave past time.
