a guilty sorta day...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and enjoying all the kids getting back to school...more crafting time for all you Mums with schoolkids, I used to love it when our Daughter was on school holidays because she was an only child we spent the whole summer on days out, sitting watching movies together playing in the garden, I felt like it was one long summer holiday for me too...I was always the most tearful one when she had to go back after her break...I had a really quiet day yesterday, a little bit of crafting, cooked dinner ready for later and then out with my lovely Dad to the chiropodist and then for a coffee, no work done on the house at all now why do I always feel so guilty for those sort of days...there is loads and loads and loads to do, not to mention holiday clothes to get ready so maybe that's why and omg my Nieces 100 table menus for her wedding aaaarrrrggggghhhhhhh panic...oh well I can catch up with some of it today I'm sure, well that's the plan anyway lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at Crafts & Me Challenges, I'm the host this time and I chose the theme of Add a Flower, so whatever you fancy as long as its got at least one flower on it...I used the amazing Sharla by Hannah Lynn for my card, I don't think shes released yet as shes brand new but it wont be long...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush papers from the Prima 6x6" Paper Pad - Tea-Thyme I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fantastic ribbon I used is wired and I found it all scrunched up in the bottom of a box, I love finding forgotten surprises like that don't you...I finished with a lush Prima flower and a sentiment zipper pull...I'm entering this for the Use It Tuesday Challenge, Crafty Catz Weekly challenge and the Papertake Weekly challenge too...I'm locking all the doors and windows and not even venturing outside until I have at least 3 jobs ticked off my huge list today...whatever your up to don't feel guilty about it and when you have the time pop on over to the Crafts & Me challenge blog to see the amazing creations of the rest of our fab digi team
