Good Afternoon All!
Well, what a week it`s been. Not a lot of crafting going on as you`ll have noticed. I`ve been doing my impression of a domestic goddess and trying to catch up on all the jobs that I keep putting off for another day. I`m getting there, slowly, but it`s the week end and it`s ME time.
I have two massive whoo hoo`s to shout about. Not only was I showcased for the Fur and Feathers week at Simply Less is More ( thank you ladies I`m still grinning) I got a top six spot on the very first In The Pink Challenge.
My head is getting bigger by the minute ;-)
I would also like to welcome my latest follower Dagmar (Gutsport 56) thank you for choosing my little blog.
We are, at this moment, having the biggest thunder storm I`ve seen in ages. The rain is like a sheet and there`s hailstone too and the thunder is continuous. I`ve not seen lightening yet but it`s sure to be around. I`m in the loft so you can imagine the noise as the hail hits the roof. I love a good thunder storm but this is a bit too noisy for me. I shall persevere as long as I can hee hee :-)
Right, enough about me, onto this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More A nice easy one this week.
It`s a 3 2 1. Which means we are to use 3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something else.
Here is my card,
The stamp is a new to me one that I recieved in the post this week. Flourishes Sunflowers. My neighbour has some gorgeous sunflowers in her garden at the moment and it`s like continuous sunshine.
The frame is made using 2 sizes of spellbinders oval nesties. The banners are made from yellow card, cut into strips and the inverted `V` is made using the corner of a square nestie.
The sentiment is also from the same Flourishes set.
I`m also entering this card into the challenge at cas-ual fridays
which is banners or flags.
Well 2 minutes after I typed that I hadn`t seen lightening there was a huge flash and an immediate very loud crack of thunder. That was it for me. I unplugged the comp and I was down those loft ladders quick as a flash (pardon the pun). Alan was downstairs watching the footie and he said the telly flashed too which scared him a bit. I can honestly say that that is the first time in my almost 58 years that I`ve ever been scared of thunder.
Any way it`s over now and everythings ok, thank goodness.
Massive apologies for the dis- jointed and rambling post. Hopefully I`ll be a bit calmer next time.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
