I'm Not Playing......

Morning folks...it's not fair and I'm not playing....oh yes I'm having a "throwing my toys out of the pram" strop and I must be honest there have been more than one or two over the last week or so...the weather has been absolutely scorchio and guess what....I'm stuck in the cubbyhole with lots of stuff to do and risking the wrath of my North East of Scotland buddies but why does the weather have to be so glorious when I'm up to my eyeballs in crafty stuff.... crikey that will be me definitely off quite a few Christmas card lists if summer disappears suddenly. And what's the best way to cheer myself up when I'm having the sulk to beat all sulks....I down worky tools and have a play.....took some ME time to make a card for the challenge this week over at Less Is More....

LUCKY DIP.....
THANK YOU or CONGRATULATIONS

Stunning LIM card Kath. And love the steampunk sneaky peek.

Know what you mean about the weather. A beautiful day like today and I spent the morning doing housework and the afternoon at work. At least I managed to take the dogs for 3 walks so I saw some of the sunshine!!

Me time is a very important mojo booster - you did the right thing! Am so looking foreward to seeing your steampunk...I consider you my personal researcher!!

Paula said...

I knew it was only a matter of time with those threads........ anyhow this is brilliant with the kraft & the colours.
Just think of how you're not going to be suffering from sunburn...... or getting all hot & bothered.
