Hi there ladies - I need to tell you that the Challenge over at Lady Anne's blog should be Anything Goes - not Spring as I told you in my previous post!  I have just slapped my hand for being a silly billy! Duh - as if I ever change!!!!!!!

Hello there fellow blogsters!!!  As usual I am grovelling 'cos I haven't managed to comment on all of your creations/blogs.  Please accept my apologies, the reason is that I started to fill my new cupboard and then realised that I needed to move all the stuff about in my room.  I have loads of drawers on castors and I have taken all my card blanks out of the drawers so that I can put my card/paper in there.  I am having to sort through 7,000,000 cards and envelopes (I never exaggerate!!) so that I have the ones I use on a regular basis close to me and the others can go in the cupboard - naturally at the bottom.  Failing that, I will be getting rid of some of them.    This is why hubby is still stubbing his toes!  No need to try and make me feel guilty Sue and Jenny - I am shameless!!  LOL!

I had made a card for my DT challenge and then the images were changed so I have used the basis of my card with a different image and am posting it on my own blog.  I love this image, she really is a cute little bee-girl. 

I haven't popped a sentiment on there because I don't have an occasion for this one yet.  I put a little Stardust on her wings and the flowers and a little glaze on the buttons at her neck and on her shoes.  Oh and I also glazed the tips of her antennae.  I wanted a hexagon shape because I thought of a honeycomb when I was putting it all together.  I didn't have a very big one so I cut out the Grand Scalloped circles and then cut the scallops off to form the said hexagon!  Yay an idea that worked!!

I hope you leave a comment if you can, I would like to thank you so much for visiting my blog and having a peep at my work.  I know I tell you how happy it makes me to read your comments and last Thursday even my hairdresser said that my blog was the best thing that had happened to me recently.  I really was down after our two furry girls and our feral furry boy died last year but blogging has certainly helped me along.  As hubby is my photographer and carpenter (stop laughing) I feel he has been helped as well.
Anyway I will leave you to your new day - I hope you manage to craft a little.  Remember, the dust will come back tomorrow!  I am intending to do my ironing - tomorrow!!!
Huge crafty hugs to you all

    me little warbling friend. I love this card it is superb as always, and very bright and cheerful on such a drab morning. The image is sooooooooooo ssssssssswwwwwweeeeeeeet, and wonderfully coloured may I add. I also love what your have done with the flowers too.
    Sounds like a major move around in the old craft room, it also sounds very tiring too. lol.
    That's what you get for having a wonderful carpenter and photographer as a husband. lol.
    I asked Mrs J if she had borrowed Pidgy from you as she had put some lovely bird foot prints around one of her cards.
    Your blog just makes my day and makes me smile every time I read your great warblings on it.
    Have a super smashing crafty Monday.
