I Really Must Read Challenges ....

What the flippin' heck is wrong with me? .... Clearly, this reaching .. ahem ... 40 ... has had a serious affect on me! I just don't seem to be able to follow half of these challenges. Saw a gorgeous sketch at Truly Scrumptious this week, made a fab card .... just went to upload it and was reading the blog again and it states that the card has to be made using black and white and one other colour ... what colour is mine? .......

... yep ... not black and white! Amazing really that this seems to be becoming a habit. I suppose it doesn't really matter cos at least it got one my August cards done lol.

CS ~ The Works, fill a box thingy, DP's ~ Freebie download Beach Papers, Image ~ RAK ... i really must get me some of these little boys at some time, cos thats the last one! Starfish ~ Local craft shop, String ~ Morrisons, Sentiment ~ PC Generated.

This card is not for any challenge so there's no fear of not getting this one right lol! I've done this card for a friend of both the girls, who has swine flu!!! Thought she might need cheering up.

CS ~ Stash, DP's ~ RAK from Jill, Image ~ RAK not sure who from though cos i've had this image absolutely ages, coloured with Whisper Strokes, Tools ~ Sewing Machine, Martha Stewart Flourish Punch from TabbyCrafts , Woodware leaf punch, Dovecraft Medium and small daisy punch, Gems ~ Stash

Why is it that a fab evening always has to end with some sort of drama? Last night we went out to our local pub for a meal and drink to celebrate Vicki's (my VBF) upcoming 40th birthday. It was a lovely evening .... my sis came with us, i thought it'd be nice for her to get out and have a little fun what with recent Beth events. Although since her return earlier in the week, progess had been made. It couldn't last though could it? My sis got home to find that Beth hadn't been and watered my Dad's greenhouse and taken the shopping down there as she'd promised to do! Chris phoned Beth 13 times and text her 6 times asking her to come home and bring my parents key back so that she could go and do it herself .... nothing! Well nothing until 11.40pm when the keys were posted through the letterbox! My sis went outside to have a word with Beth, but she was just going into the neighbours house across the road and either didn't hear my sis shout her or chose to ignore her. Beth had parked her car across the road at the bottom of my street. There were 4 lads in the car, the doors were open on it and music bellowing out of it. My sis did no more than run across the road and get in the drivers seat .... she refused to move when Beth came to the car and eventually got the keys off her again! The lads were turfed out of the car and the car is now parked in the yard with the gate padlocked with a heavy duty lock and all 3 keys in Chris's possession! Beth went off in a strop with the boys and at 1.15am was still not home! So yet again it looks like we're in for another eventful weekend .... its Rylee's birthday party on Sunday and at some point i need to make a balloon arch ... i'm hoping that Fae has forgotten about it to be honest lol! Wish me luck pmsl!
