Dottie's World- No patterned Paper




Hi everyone. Back home, washing nearly up to date but still loads to do. As well as being Father's day today is is my darling Chris's Birthday so I have a busy day ahead. I let Chris have a lay in but I was up early to finish making a few cards and wrap a few presents before the kiddies and me bombarded him with his goodies and a few "adapted" versions of "Happy Birthday!"

Chris is going to take Jack swimming this morning to give me a chance to run around and tidy a bit more so that hopefully this afternoon we will all be able to have some quality time together before we all have to go back to school/ work tomorrow!





Anyway, enough waffle; I quickly made a card for this week's challenge over at Dottie's World, which is to use no patterned papers. Loads of ideas for this one but not much time so I stuck to a very basic background of torn and layered card. I was going to get my sewing machine out to stitich these together but at nearly midnight last night I just didn't have the energy-especially as I had a bit of a fingermark issue on my "not as dry as I thought-Glossy Accents" - sorry!
Got a VERY busy week ahead of me! As well as playing catch up at home, I am back to work and determined to get all my work records up to date and passed to my supervisor for the children's leaving reports to be made up . I want these done and dusted and off my to do list.
After that I have loads of unfinished decorating to do and one very messy and unorganised craft room. I was given a large black storage "thingy" yesterday - perfect for A4 card but I have nowhere to put it at the moment! LOL
Right, better get on. See you again soon!

Hello
This is a great card. Georg is beautiful colored in, and I like the dotted sircel.
Wish you a great weekend even if you have lots of things to do.
Hug Gunn :-)
