Time For Me.

Good morning everyone, At long last I have had 5 minutes ti sit t the table and do a card for a challenge. This one is for the challenge over at Stamp Something where they would like to see flowers on your creation, this is what I came up with.
I have made a shaker card because one they are so much fun to do and two I haven't made one for ages. I have used a C.C. Design Stamps, coloured with Promarkers. The flowers are from a EK Success punch. The card stock is from my stash, the pearls and the fancy heart bits are chopped up sections from a border punch which are both from Kaisercraft,
Well, I'm off we are having a small road trip today to check out hubby's new workplace, he starts on Tuesday.
Thanks for popping by

What was a bad week is now a good one

Hi everyone, Well I have had such a crappy week, but as you can tell from the title it has become a good one. It started with a phone call on Monday morning from one of my childhood friends to let me know her father had passed away. It really stirred up all the sadness of losing my own father 3 1/2 years ago. Come Friday, which I spent in tears, we had the funeral which made me fell totally useless as there was nothing I could do or say to make it any better for my friend. (My thoughts are with you and your family Tracey xx) Poor hubby hasn't had any luck in getting a job after apply to a few adds throughout the week, and having no reply. Today I took my daughter to the movies for a little time out, we saw Eclipse (loved it, loved it, loved it) but imagine my surprise when getting home checking out my blog and finding a comment from Lynn to pop over to her blog. Well I did and guess what? I have won her House Mouse Card Kit. I'm so excited. Yeah ME! Please pop over to have a peek at her blog Lynn really is a talented lady. Thanks again Lynn! So I now have the biggest smile on my face. Winning the kit really did come at a good time. OK it's tea time in this house and the stove is calling my name. Thanks to all of you popping by and listening (reading) me moan. Take care Maree xxxxx P.S: If all goes well I should have a card ready to enter in a challenge tomorrow.
