What a weekend...

Hi folks...before you ask I'm slowly recovering from my domestic goddess weekend adventures and it's time to come clean...forgive the pun...all this cleaning malarkey doesn't float my boat...necessary I admit but a bit of a chore and not much fun...a bit like painting the Forth sooner are you finished and you're back to square one but someone's got to do it so I set to work wiping down doors and skirting boards...moving furniture...crikey how long has all that dust been hiding under there...and the TV...that's a losing battle if ever I saw one...turn your back for a moment and the screen's once again covered in a hazy film of dust but hey the world definitely looks a brighter and more in focus place when the windows are sparkly clean. A real feeling of job satisfaction when it's all done but it's not going to stay that way is it and I have no intention of swopping the crafty tools for marigolds and a feather duster on a regular basis but there may be a solution...I need my very own Mollie Maid and who better for the job than The Furry Boy with his fabulous "just the job" huge feather duster of a tail. Some sweet talking and lots of treat might just persuade him to do a daily whizz around but I may have to move anything smashable out of harm's way first.
Today's going to be a sofa and cake helping me to cope with yet another chore...writing out the christmas cards but first I need to find  a pen...why can I never lay my hands on a pen when I need one so before I call out a search party to turn the house upside's time to share another DT card for this month's Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge...a snowflake card with a difference...

I'll see you all tomorrow when I'll be sharing a mega photo fest of Sizzix/Hero Arts projects...

  1. well Kath the card is gorgeous...if you are stuck for more housework then i can give you some to do...I know what you mean...I just feel that I spend all my time washing and ironing these days.


  2. Fab card. As always of course.
    Good for you getting all your housework done.
    I used to have a cleaning lady...I miss her so much. Now that we are retired, we are going to clean the house. We doesn't clean it as well as she least some parts of the "we"! lol

    Well, maybe he would never think to do the baseboards or move the furniture, but he now does all the heavy work in the garden and most of the I guess the quickie cleaning method will have to do! I can always sneak in and "touch up" a little when he is not around!!!


  3. Glad to hear you have a day to rest after all that cleaning this weekend. I'm sure Buddy would be more than willing to help ! His message yesterday was so fun to read.
    Your snowflake cards are lovely. I like the lavender seam binding along with the snowflakes.

  4. Gorgeous card Kath, housework gets in the way of crafting but has to be done. Buddy's tale yesterday was delightful, bet he would love to help out with his tail.

  11. Hi Kath, what a beautiful delicate christmas card. I'm not sure if it's an age thing, but cleaning becomes very boring year after year but I couldn't live in a tip...Trish

  12. I'm half way through that chore - the little pile of tools & the return address stamp are propping open my studio (er ........ craft room) door so I cannot forget the daily quota........husband's signature required batch to do tonight!
    Looks like a flowerflake or a snow flower to me!

  19. Stunning card Kath, love the colours and that rolled flower is gorgeous.

    I'm with you about housework. Nice when everything looks good but the bother of getting it that way. Dusting is a complete waste of time with my two big hairy black Labs. Can't figure out why they want to cast just now!
