a splash of orange...

Good morning everyone I hope you all survived Friday the 13th without incident, I have a little snippet of information for you today, did you know this year there are 4 Friday the 13th's and they are exactly 13 weeks apart...my head is full of rubbish like that that's no use to anyone lol, Phil's away at the motorbikes racing marshaling again so I'm not up to much today, would you believe I spent most of yesterday in bed sleeping, I'm hoping that's the end of the virus thingy I have, when I finally woke up Phil had a lovely dinner of lasagna, salad and garlic potatoes, it looked fantastic but I hadn't the heart to tell him I wasn't hungry, well you cant do that when someone has gone to all that effort can you...it was tasty though and I ate some of it...I stayed up for a few hours but nodded off on the sofa again, woke for another hour did a teeny bit of commenting but couldnt keep my eyes open so then off to bed and slept like a log...maybe I have sleeping sickness lol

I didn't even switch my laptop off which is unknown for me, I'm really careful with electrical stuff...right enough of my moaning are you up to anything exciting today, go on let me know so I can be jealous lol...my card for today is using another MayzyArt digi, this is the fabulous Jean Reading, I love how she does faces don't you...I coloured her with distress inks and had to make her a redhead with these lush papers I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, they are from the Kaisercraft Homemade 6x6 paper pad, these papers are fantastic in this pad and like all Kaisercraft pads they have four pages of tag, embellishments and paper borders at the back, the tag on the image and message are from the same pad...I added some lush rich orange ribbon to finish...Im entering this for the Fairy Tale Challenge, Charisma Cardz challenge and Card Makin Mamas challenge too...I promise I wont have a moan at you tomorrow, I'm sure your fed up with reading me feel sorry for myself, so today I will give myself a good shake and get down to some serious crafting as my stash is feeling a bit neglected I think...whatever your up to today have a fantastic day

Very pretty Mina! LOve your card and love that little bit of orange. I wasn't that lucky on Friday the 13th. Got myself a cup of coffee before school and sat down in the team room to drink it. Thank when I picked it up again I was sitting there holding the ear and the cup had come off completely. All the hot coffee over my jeans and it took ages to dry, iek!!!
Hugs, Frea
