Papertake Weekly Challenge

Morning folks.....sorry for landing you with "His Nibs" this morning but once again I couldn't drag myself out of's funny how the weather can influence your mood.....I hate these dark dismal mornings....all grey and wet and it's going to get worse when the time changes in about a week's time which brings me nicely on to the challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly.

and yes another Halloween card....for someone who had never made one before this year....I now have loads of the blighters lying around

Papers: Funky Hand...Salt & Pepper download
Bazzill Cardstock
Ghosts....Quickutz Die
Sentiment: Papermania Cardsock Stickers
Circle....Face Rub-on and Hair
well I can't for the life of me remember where they came from.....I used to use them to make little wooden plaques with amusing sayings years and years ago and sold them at craft fairs.
So much for the dark dismal has turned out beautiful......very mild and pleasant and can you believe that this little beauty is still flowering it's head off in the middle of October

now we come to the serious bit......a good talking to is definitely in order...this rising at 8.00am is playing havoc with the crafting conveyor the time I have walked "The Budster" and done all the household chores.....well it is almost 11.00am and I just have 2 hours of crafting before it is time for our lunchtime walk...normally I am in the cubbyhole about I am losing 2 hours every day.....and last night had to work on until 10.30pm to get the baby fest I fear that this feather bed may not be the best idea in the world.....but I am going to set the alarm clock tonight and force myself out of bed at 6.30 tomorrow morning.     Catch up with you all tomorrow for some sneaky peeks.....hopefully.

Your cards look fab, glad your enjoying the new bed - don't know how you can get up that early - I get up as late as poss and go down as early as poss, lol!

    I really wish I had your problem - lying in that is. My daughters have never been good sleepers and I am usually up between 5.30 - 6.00am every morning.
