Good morning peeps,
I am so sorry for being such a bad blogger, I've spent the last few days busy doing nothing and totally resting my shoulder. I couldn't even be bothered to do any colouring & I haven't even been doing my usual Anthea Turner clean freak malarkey, I've turned into a slob lol. Hubby has had a few days off & he's done all the cooking which has been lovely, I do love a nice meal and when I cook it's nothing like a nice meal trust me lol. Anyway I am starting to feel more like my old self and not popping as many painkillers as I have been and the urge to get my beloved hoover out has returned which is always a good sign lol.
Today is new challenge day at
and this fortnight we are playing
Pop over to the challenge blog to take a peek at the bingo grid.
I wanted to make a beach themed wedding card for Michelle the daughter of my blogging buddy Jeanette , or mother of the bride I should say as she's very proud to have a title lol.
Medium - distressed inks
Papers - Magnolia
Sentiment - Paper Make Up
Flowers - Prima, Wild Orchid & stash
OMG I've just realised I haven't added any butterflies which isn't like me lol
Especially for you ladies that like to see the sparkle here is a close up of the flowers sparkling in the sunshine.
I've made the fancy pin using a Whiff Of Joy pin head and adding Blue Moon bead pearls.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
7 Kids College Fund - fab sketch & beach theme, Crazy 4 Challenges - favourite vacation spot (beach), Simply Create - special day /event, Fun With Shapes & More - sparkle, Stamp Something - something sentimental, Colour Create - white, cream, brown, Craft Us Crazy - love / remembrance, Crafty Sentiments - special occasions, Top Tip Tuesday - 2 or more stamps, 2 Sisters - anything goes
I was just about to do the usual & begin thanking you for visiting and I had an awful thought that I missed posting a DT card while I was floating around on painkillers.
Lynne & girlie's I'm so sorry I'm a doped up air head, and you are all too lovely to nudge me and remind me.
So on Thursday a new challenge started at
& the challenge this fortnight in case you haven't already found it is -
Man cards are always a challenge for me, I hardly ever enjoy making them and sit there longingly looking at flowers and wanting to sparkle them up and pop them on but I know most men don't appreciate them on cards for some strange and stupid reason, after all many of them grow them in their gardens.

I have made up my mind I AM going to play with my copics today, I've loads of lovely new copic sketch pens from Simon Says Stamp, & I keep intending to have a play but never get round to it so today is the day!
I need to take it easy for a couple more days & be really careful with the shoulder as I am going to be meeting a blogging buddy for the first time on Wednesday as she is on holiday about 20 miles away from where I live & there's no way I want to get on the back of hubby's Harley so I need to be fit to drive and meet up :)
Thanks for stopping by
