Off on a Jolly

Morning folks ...well yesterday didn't quite go according to plan....I had intended to spend the morning at my local Car Boot Sale in an effort to clear the garage of more of the old tat....had the car all loaded up ready for an early start.    The weather forecast for Sunday was promising but when I got up at 6.30am it was raining and according to those experts at the Met Office it was going to be on for the day so I popped back to bed and snuggled down.  And surprise surprise when I woke at 8.30am the sun was out and the rain stayed off for the rest of the day.....I am making no further comment apart from the fact that I was not amused at having to unload the car and put all the clutter back in the garage.
And the grumpy mood didn't exactly put me in the right frame of mind for getting creative in the cubbyhole until I received an urgent call for 2 New Home cards.....and when the going gets tough....who you gonna forget Ghostbusters....Hero Arts and the word "deadline" are guaranteed to work everytime.

Papers: Bo Bunny Back to Backs
Stampin Up Kraft Paper
Image: Hero Arts...2 Houses
Buttons from stash
Flower: Hero Arts
Sentiment: American Crafts Thickers
Rub-ons from stash
The mojo kept going all day and I managed to get heaps of stuff done....long may it continue.    I think I deserve a little treat after the stresses of last's a gorgeous sunny morning and doesn't that make us all feel better...first stop the shearing station to have the locks cut off before I resort to doing it myself with the garden shears and then off on a little jolly to Simply Create to deliver the cards for the Save the Children Crop that I forgot to take with me on my last visit and meet up with my lovely buds Anne and Debbi for coffee...cake and a crafty natter and then home for a creative afternoon in the cubbyhole.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Good Morning Kath & Buddy
Love your bright cheery cards you are sharing this morning. Well we have it cloudy and trying to rain. Hope you haven't sent it our way in due anticipation of Megs parcel for Buddy, which will be in the post this morning. I think Buddy might have a bit of competition when it comes to the cheeky game. Enough said ........ Wish Simply Create would start an online shop.
Have a good day - Hugs and ticles behing the ears .... Denise & Meg
