After the storm ......

sorry about the post title, running out of ideas!! Not much going on, after a really hectic week last week with 3 children's activities and an Open House, I am feeling rather 'flat'. After the initial feeling of euphoria that I was no longer marching (make that running) to keep up with deadlines I now feel a bit unfocussed. Always have been a 'work better to a deadline' kinda gal. Hey ho. Maybe I am just tired, my attempt to get back into my keepfit regime with a long walk on Sunday and an aquafit class yesterday left me exhausted when I woke up this morning. Hey ho. Anyhow, here's a couple of cards I made over the last week.

First an exploding handbag card for a  friend.





I was quite pleased with the way the bunting turned out but had a job writing anything in the card after I had put it all together!!





Just like the way this one turned out. The main image is from a tunnel card set I bought but I didn't like the way they went together - the folded card as it comes out of the envelope is most uninspiring. So I have been using the images as toppers. I love the gorjuss girls. Actually did use one of my 'touch of mica' stencils to emboss the background and I love the idea of frilling up these flower shapes I have with a punch - saw that on the Stampartic website.



In fact I see they have a monochrome challenge for November so I think I'll enter this card I just made. Can you see the Sue Wilson influence lol? I just love her OTT decoration and the layers of detail on her cards. But it just makes me want to buy more nestabilities!!
This is more what I have time for on a regular basis:


Must have been in a bit of a brown study the last couple of days!!  Ok, right now I am sitting in my workroom with all the Christmas papers and stamps out. Lovely. So, must make a start on those Crimbo cards, I have vowed I will not be doing them at the last minute this year. See ya!!
