A card

The first thing I did with my kit was grab the stamp that I ordered and embossed it in clear powder over top of red, green, pearl & yellow maya mists. I then used broken china distress ink to cover it all, then I cut it out.
I hate the green tape - but it's a bit late now. Big oops!!
Hoping to get some time to play tomorrow. It's definately the right weather for it at the moment.

Monday-itis (aka Sucky Monday)

Not a really great start to the week.
So far this morning (and it hasn't even hit luch time yet), I have:
Woken up late
Cleaned up cat vomit - TWICE
Taken the kids to 2 different schools
Been to the post office
Got two flat tyres
Been to the bank
Cleaned the pool
Done 2 loads of washing (have 2 more to go)
Changed the sheets on 2 beds
And done the washing up.

Still waiting on my SC kits. Really hoping they come today.
I think they would make today a little less sucky!!

Edited to add: My kits arrived - Hooray!!!

On Saturday we did some yard work. Bought a paw paw tree (yuck!!), a passionfruit vine and some lavender plants. We tidied up the grounds and moved some things around. Put together a new pool filter thing. It really wasn't strenuous - but come Sunday morning, I couldn't move. I was in agony. It was horrible.
I'm feeling a bit better today. Still a bit sore. Back pain is definately not something I want again!!
Luckily it was a pupil free day at school, so I slept in a little and have just taken it easy today.
I finally cracked into Cotillion and got these done.
I love that butterfly stamp!!

The day after, the day after my iphone died

So a couple of days ago the kids rode to the shop to get fish & chips. They took my iphone.
When they got back, I discovered that they had put my phone in the bag with the fish......and the fish had leaked all over my phone. It was everywhere. Eeekkk!!!!
I stopped in to Apple to see if they could do repairs. They ended up replacing it with a brand spankin new one. (At a fee of course - but a much smaller fee than buying another one outright)
So happy to have a phone back!!
I was so impressed by Apple's service. 5 stars!!!

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

I managed 15 I think.
All Christmas cards. The holly & leaves are hand coloured with Copic Spica glitter markers.
The stamp is Hero Arts and the rest is Making Memories.
They were fun to make and I really like how they turned out.
I'm feeling good that I made a start on them. 20 down and quite a few more to go ;o)

Cards Galore

So with just a couple of supplies, I whipped up quite a few basic cards. A nice fat little stash of birthday cards. And a couple of simple chrissy cards. I still have a ton of my cosmo earth love pad left. Such sweet papers!!
