Can you keep a secret?

Morning folks....I definitely had that Monday Morning feeling yesterday and I'm sure you all know what that feels like....couldn't gee my ginger long enough to get much of anything done....I think a good talking to and a kick up the butt may be required today to get me back on track.   We are still in Secret Project mode around here...even The Budster has been sworn to secrecy and would have you believe he is taking his responsibilities very seriously.....
don't you believe it....under interrogation he would give up at the first sniff of a packet of biscuits....but hey ho people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones....who knows how long I would manage to hold out if faced with some yummy Green & Black's choccy.
And after all that Official Trade Secrets stuff....I do have a card to share....another quick and simples I made a few weeks back and forgot to post..... 


Background created with Hero Arts....Dots & Flowers.....Stripes Pattern
Image: Hero Arts....Butterflies
Sentiment: Hero Arts....Big Hugs
Flowers: Petaloo
Gems from stash

and as we are in mauve mode today I thought I would share this gorgeous clematis already blooming it's head off although it doesn't normally flower until September....and after Sunday's drizzly drookit day....yesterday turned out rather sunny despite the doom and gloom merchants at the Met Office and of course I couldn't resist sitting in the garden with my cuppa and there you have it.....the reason for the crafty production line coming to a standstill.

and I have a little surprise for 2 of my lovely bloggy buds.....2 packs of the ribbons from my Fantastic Ribbons Give-Away have not been claimed so they will be winging their way to the first 2 comments from yesterday......
e-mail me with your addresses girls and I will get them off in the post

Fingers crossed I can get into crafty mode today and get some work done or else I may find myself in detention on Friday and that wouldn't do at all.  Catch up with you all tomorrow over at WOYWW...can't wait to see what everybody else has been up to this week.
Hugs Kath xxxx

No one would think the Budster would be open to bribbery he looks so loyal. Your clamtis is beautiful, talented gardener too and as for your card that goes without saying.

Surely the only thing Bud would give out would be his rank and serial number?!! Can't believe he would betray his mum for a biscuit. Kath, thank you for starting another day with a smile. Beautiful butterfly card, so delicate. Hugs, Sxx

This is a really pretty card, love the butterfly trail. Buddy looks like he is about to give up your secret, better watch him. Thanks for the clematis. I grew several varieties when I lived in the midwest, but have not tried them in Florida. Many midwest flowers do not do well here, so I enjoyed looking at yours.

Gorgeous card Kath, love the colours and the butterfly looks like it is ready to take flight!

Glad Buddy is being good at keeping secrets, he is way to clever that golden boy!

Sorry I haven't had chance to visit blogs recently as one of my kids were knocked down by an idiot van driver last week and I have been playing nurse to my boy with his broken wrist!!

Kat said...

This is gorgeous Kath. Love that colour. Of course lol! Loved the scrap ones from yesterday. Glad you managed to go to the car boot sale on Sunday. We were down at Perth and went into Glendoick garden centre for a plate of soup and if you'd had the rain we had down there you'd have been drenched!! Lucky it was better up here.

I've been having real trouble getting online and it was driving me nuts. Last night I couldn't even get on my own blog grrrr.

Kat xx

Rufus said...

Really pretty butterfly card! Of course Buddy would never tell all the secrets that he knows! Just a small one or two, after all a biscuit is a biscuit!

I'm a green and black's addict too! The 85% is my fave....I do love the almond and peanut too, but I buy the most of the 85%... oh, to only own stock in the company!!! lol It just makes stamping better for some reason! lol
