Papertake Weekly Challenge

Morning folks......a bit late posting this morning....the old body is protesting and doesn't want to play after a busy day of decorating yesterday...oh I am so fed up with it now....but still lots to do and as they say on Mastermind....I've started so I'll finish....well don't have an option really unless I want to sleep in a two tone half painted bedroom...but the day wasn't all doom and gloom......I had a visit from the lovely Judy in the afternoon and a bit of a crafty natter over a coffee which cheered me up and then it was time to get stuck in and make some cards......hey that was wishful thinking.....only got one done..... for another of my favourite challenges and then I was zonked out on the sofa with "The Budster" for the rest of the night.
The challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly is.....


Hero Arts Cling Stamp....Floral Garden
Martha Stewart.....Patterns Clear Stamp Set
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Petaloo Flowers
Gems from stash
Ribbon: American Crafts
Sentiment: Hero Arts....Thinking of You
Brilliance....Peacock Ink Pad

And never mind CHECK IT was almost CHUCK IT OUT....just wasn't happy with it....kept moving things this is the finished card and do you know what....I still ain't happy.....but if I work at it any will be in the bin...and I'm afraid no sneaky peek's going to be a last minute dash with my Penny Black Saturday card this week and I hope that Mr Mojo is feeling more energetic than I am or I'm in big trouble.   Catch up with you all tomorrow and a little tease......a very special day in the life of the old blog coming up soon and a rather special you-know-what.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx
