Skateboarding Lessons! - Addicted To Stamps DT Card

Good morning peeps,
I woke up to the biggest mess ever in my kitchen, Jodie, Gareth, my beautiful nephew Rob and loads of friends all started off having a few drinks here last night & then went clubbing to celebrate Jode's birthday. I hadn't realised they all came back here in the early hours and carried on partying, my kitchen was a right state, glasses, plates, empty bottles, & Gareth's clothes all over the place so I'm guessing after a lot of drinks he did his usual strip, he's not shy my boy lol.
OMG I messed up and fell asleep yesterday when trying to do some blogging & type my post which I intended to schedule but I only got as far as uploading my piccys, I also entered a totally wrong link in a challenge! Oh lord I blame the Diazepam I'm taking for the back pain, I swear I don't even know what planet I'm on lol. I've just taken another so fingers crossed I manage to publish this and make sense with my waffle lol.

Today is new challenge day at
and this fortnight the challenge is

We are welcoming two new ladies to our little ATS family & as always my super talented teamies have some beautiful inspiration for you, please pop over and take a peek and come and join us in the challenge
Ingredients -
Image - Magnolia
Medium - Copics
Papers - Pion
Flowers - Kort & Godt, Prima & Wild Orchid
Pearls - Melissa Frances
Sentiment - Cats Life Press
Pin - homemade
Tools - MS Cherished PATP, nesties, Marianne Creatables decorative elegance die
This was another card I had made for Jodie' birthday for Gareth to give to her and again there is a reason for the image I've used!
Gareth has tried giving Jode skateboarding lessons many times and he's got loads of videos of her trying to skateboard on his phone and judging by these she'll never manage it, they are hilarious and usually end up with Jodie flat on her back rolling around laughing

I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch (rotated), Fairytale - sports, Corrosive - punches & or dies, Crafting For All Seasons - birthdays, My Mum's Craft Shop - happy birthday, Cute Card Thursday - anything goes, Top Tip Tuesday - birthday time

My baby sis is coming around this morning as she's visiting from Plymouth for a couple of days so I really must attempt to hobble around & sort my kitchen out so I can at least get to the kettle lol.
Thanks for stopping by
