goal...

Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a fab week...it was a strange day yesterday one of those days when its two steps forward one back, trying hard to do things and not quite getting there, I have five cards half made, when you have one of those days your better drawing a line and starting again another day aren't you...well it either that or bang your head against a brick wall and the first is less painful lol...its still taking a little bit of getting used to having Phil home, don't get me wrong I'm loving every second of it but there is teeny little things like Phil brought a clock home with him and the ticking is driving me nuts so whenever I can I stop it in the hope he will think its broken and chuck it lol...I know I'm bad I should just tell him shouldn't I...I hate ticking clocks don't you its like chinese water torture lol...right now onto my card for today, I thought it was time I did a boys card as I haven't been doing as many as normal so I chose this stunning little Sugar Nellie Striker stamp from Funky Kits for it...hes so sweet isn't he, I love these little hedgies...I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with this amazing double sided paper from My Minds Eye Lil' Robots range, its called Sock Em Stars...I finished with some white rope and bow, a stamped sentiment from kaisercraft and a star cut from the paper...I think this image would make a fantastic card for any boys birthday don't you...the fab sketch is from The Sugar Bowl and I'm entering it for the Lollipop Crafts challenge and Allsorts challenge too...I'm off out with my lovely Dad today I think he needs shopping, I really should buy some shares in Sainsburys shouldn't I lol...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Just beautiful. Love everything about it. Agreed, a ticking clock can be quite distracting.

Great card to send to a boy in Holland!! It's still a couple of weeks but the streets are turning orange for the dutch football team already. Don't like to watch football but my boys don't mind if i sit upstairs and do some crafting. And wow, 5 half made cards in one day! How do you do that, i'm pleased if i manage to get one done. Enjoy your day, Colinda

Mina this is so cute...look at that bumble bee acting as referee! Lol I love it.
As for the clock, I hate them and the light on the TV standby! I need total quiet and darkness to sleep, even with my eyes shut I can still see that little TV light Arrrghhh!

Hi Mina
That really is such a sweet hedgie, and coloured fabulously!
I know what you mean about noisy clocks - Eleri had a clock for her wall for Christmas and that is noisy, sometimes it's possible to shut off from it but not always!
Love, Andrea xx

mags said...
