I cant believe how quickly these Saturday’s are coming around!

Is it just me or do the weeks go a bit quicker than what they used to? When I was working full time in the Bank I can remember how the weeks used to drag on and on … maybe its because I havent had to go back to a ‘real job’ as some would put it and I love sharing card making and paper crafting and its such a huge bonus to earn an income from it! I love this job!!

Here is this weeks Diva’s Sketch Challenge.

Now when I first looked at this sketch I thought “Oh dear .. what on earth will I do with that??”

So today, after getting home from my Stamp A Stack, I had a thought and well it sorta progressed from there! Scary how that happens sometimes!

I have wanted to make a card for a dear friend who had an operation this week so I thought I’d make this one for her. My daughter and hubby love what I did although I’m still a little unsure about it and I do hope my friend likes this card.


So here is my card. Now to keep with tradition I had to change something so I used an oval instead of the circle in the sketch.

I think I will miss our current In Colours when they retired at the end of March – I love them all and still not totally sure about the upcoming In Colours although I do like the soft Pink Pirouette.

As a word of warning if you happen to own any of the In Colour ink pads and want to get reinkers DO NOT leave it till the last minute – last year the reinkers were gone within the first week of the release of the Retirement list.

Now I’m off to relax and watch some TV with my dear hubby who’s been good to be home and watch the girls today and especially now that Emily’s cold has turned into the flu – poor poppette!

Have a great weekend!





  1. Best wishes to Emily for a speedy recovery! I’m wondering if I’ll get to see this card in the “real”? It’s great.
