Back to work with Papertake Weekly

Morning folks..up with the lark this morning...sitting outside enjoying the first coffee of the day with only The Budster and my birdie friends for company....definitely the best time of the day...and it looks as though it's going to be another glorious day...the Met Office are predicting 4 months of beautiful weather....well you know what that means....they have definitely put the scuppers on Summer now...whatever they say....the weather usually decides to do the opposite....but if just for once they are right.....oh dear I can see the crafty conveyor belt grinding to a halt.
I must admit I have been feeling a bit guilty having so much time lazing in the sun time...so last night I dragged myself into the cubbyhole and got those crafty fingers working....got a heap of stuff done but nothing I can share at the moment....but surprise surprise....I did manage to get a challenge card done.
The challenge this week over at Papertake Weekly is

SAY IT WITH FLOWERS
normally I would make a beeline for my Primas
but Mr Mojo seems stuck with Hero Arts and Tim Holtz at the moment....and who am I to argue



Hero Arts Clings...Wildflower Garden stamped with Versamark
and embossed with Detail White
Background created with Distress Ink Weathered Wood
overstamped with Hero Arts Clings.. Antique Brocade...Weathered Wood
Hero Arts... Old Letter Writing....Brushed Corduroy
Ribbon..buttons and string from stash
Sentiment...Hero Arts..Thinking Of You
Woo.....hoo...this card just got a mention over at Hero Arts Twitter
I should have waited until last night to do "What's On My Workdesk Wednesday"....oh boy that would have been a shocker for you....it was a bomb site....and when I finally finished at 10.30pm....I was so tempted to just close the door and head for bed but I know what a "Mrs Grumpy Knickers" I am if I come down in the morning to a trashed cubbyhole.....so it was time to put the kettle on...hot chocolate and a bit of cracking the whip did the trick...all ship shape ready for another crafty day of ticking things off the never ending list.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for sneaky peek Friday....and I must remember to get some pics of the new boudoir
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: went over to link my card and guess what Mr Linky has gone AWOL....is he off on his hols or just late for work...need to check back later and I notice he's also missing over at Penny Black Saturday....what is it with these guys constantly taking the mick....if it's not Mr Linky...it's that other good for nothing....Mr Blogger.

Your grumbling always amuses me. You do it in such a funny way.
Here the sun shines too, and it's here to stay for at least a few days. I already have one load of laundry done and it's on the line outside.
I have to go upstairs soon though, I have to finish one card that I need today.
Have a good day.
Eveline.
