Home Alone - Again!

Whoop! Whoop!  Peace & quiet on a Saturday is fantastic!!!  Baz was golfing in the morning then he is away to the Dundee v Cowdenbeath game this afternoon.  Had a slight delicate head on this morning as I was out last night with a few friends - nothing a strong black coffee and a roll, sausage 'n' onions couldn't sort out!... lol. 

Found this little verse of the Internet and I just had to use this Gorjuss Girl image from Sugar Nellie to go with it!!!. 

The design paper was a freebie from a magazine.  Flowers and pearls from stash.  Also used on this card was my Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder and Martha Stewart Border Punch.  My faux stitshes are by pen.  The challenges covered on this card are:-

Very Demure - just like me.....

.... No, I'm more like the bull in a china shop ... lol.  Been very good this week, only managed to crack one glass to far,  though today is still young.  Thinking about it - the ideal job for me would be one of those product testers for alleged indestructible items. I'm sure I would be able to put them through their

Rock Star

Hello peeps.  The weekend again and I am home alone - whoop whoop!!!  All my jobs are (nearly) done around the house so I thought I deserved a wee play at the table this afternoon - hehe!   Onyx, the stroppy teenager of a cat, is determined to get covered in glue and glitter today as she keeps walking all over the table trying to help - NOT!!!  Tried to get her off by threatening her with a brush (which she hates) but instead she just turned round, hissed and then proceeded to lay down right in the middle of my stuff on the table - foiled by a cat!!! 

Now that I am at the moment blogging, she is now wanting on my knee but because the laptop is there she has jumped up on the the back of the seat and is currently pulling my hair!!! - told you she was stroppy!

The image is Luca from Sugar Nellie.  The design paper is a tiny piece out of scrap drawer.  Star sequins, musical brads and sentiment are from stash.  The challenges covered are:-

60th Birthday

Good afternoon folks!!!  Just like to say first of all my deepest thoughts and wishes are going out to everyone caught up in that dreadful earthquake/tsunami across in Japan.  I cannot image what they are going though when watching the horrific pictures on the telly.  Puts the snow we had into perspective doesn't it!

This evening I am heading out to a 40th birthday party,  this is first of many four-zero's coming up this year (mine included).  I hear on the grapevine that "40" is the "30" - is this true???  If so, help!!!  I am struggling to find anything to wear in my wardrobe for tonight as a few pounds have sneaked on over the months and nothing fits!  Arrrrgh!  Do you think I could get away with wearing my finest pj's (along with a bit of bling of

Anyway,  I had a few cards to make today and here is one of them.  I used this gorgeous Elizabeth Bell image from Sugar Nellie and the green/white checked paper is from a Forever Friends paperpack.  Flowers, pearl and number peel offs are from stash.  Also used on this card was my Swirl embossing folder and leaf punch. I "blinged" the flower and leaves up with some clear stickles.  The challenges covered are:-
I suppose I'd better start trying to make myself look presentable for tonight - could be a long, painful process!  lol. xx
