Allsorts Challenge...Week 37

Morning folks.....oops had a bit of a lie-in this morning.....been burning the midnight oil ever so slightly and the weather.....well we are still snowed under here....so where better to spend a snowy morning but snuggled up under the duvet with "The Champion Snorer" asleep on my feet....and it's been great being stuck in my nice cosy cubbyhole over the last few days watching the blizzards outside and even my normally hyper-active bundle of golden deliciousness is quite happy to be snoozing the day away instead of trudging through snow......so it's meant I've got lots of crafty stuff down.....and had some time to have a little play too.
The challenge this week over at ALLSORTS is a sketch......oh dear me.....think I managed to get it right this week.....but you know my track record with the old sketches and I seem to be developing another problem....can't drag myself away from this pink and brown colour combo either.

Sentiment: Hero Arts CL151....Share Laughter
Ribbon: American Crafts
finished with off with a dusting of Glamour Dust

and this was the chaotic scene that met me when I walked into the cubbyhole this morning......

too tired last night to tidy anything away.....so it's mega "file everything away" time before I can start on the next project......don't you just wish the "Tidy Fairy" would come visit and work her magic while we are all asleep.   A girl can dream can't she....but no amount of huffing and puffing......crafty tantrums or bad wordies under my breath will get it done....so here goes......catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxx.

  11. Kathy your card is stunning. I love the colours you are "into" at the moment. I may even have to give them a try. I am so glad that I am not the only one who can create a mess while crafting ;) xoxoxoxo

  13. Fabulous card Kath, love that colour combo. If my craft space was like that I'd think it was tidy lol! I really need one of those tidy fairies. After a weekend off though I think I'll need to stay untidy to get round and do my DT commenting!

    Keep cosy,

    Kat xx

  14. Hi Kath! Such a soft and pretty card, I love your "style" of card making! Thanks for the lovely comment on my PB card. I can totallt relate to the "tidying up" issue... I'm the biggest culprit!
