Yippeeeee!! Guess what I'll......

.. be watching tonight!!!!!!

Hubby went out this morning to do some chores and came back with some shopping- and a pressie for me!!

He only went & brought me my own copy of Twilight on DVD!!!!
I've read all the books, but still not seen the film- so now there's no excuse-crafting & job hunting maybe
taking a back seat today!! LOL

Still no news on the job front- not that I have been sitting on my laurels! - I have attended several interviews
& signed up to work with an Agency & registered with the Caterer on line, but still no joy!
Hopefully there is something out there for me! Might even retrain & take a plumbers course( although Hubby
laughed his socks off when I told him that !) How many lady plumbers do you know of??
Who knows what's around the corner, hey?

Well gonna have a go at some challenges, as not had many creative juices flowing lately!

Hope you all are gonna enjoy this lovely Bank Hol weather- as its glorious sunshine outside here!

Catch you later

Just a few more cards....

Just a few more cards here that I've made over the past couple of days...
I was inspired by Paula Pascual at the CUL birthday weekend, last weekend.

The cards were made using the Crate Paper- Lillian Collection Kit.
I also used: Cards from Craftwork Cards; SU Natural Ivory card stock; SU Kraft Taffeta ribbon; SU Old Olive grosgrain ribbon; ribbons, brads & pearl dots from stash; Sugar coated brads; Martha Stewart leaf punch & glitter glue.
I also used the negative parts of the dies, as the leftovers seemed too nice to throw away!

These are a little different for me- but I have wanted to have a go for ages, as I keep seeing these type of cards on various different blogs and love how they look.

Hope you like them..

SWU Challenge..

This week the challenge the SWU team have set is a sketch to follow.
Here is my card for this weeks challenge-

I have used the following items: Rose Red DS papers; Rose Red, Very Vanilla & Whisper white card stock; Fun & Fast Notes stamp set; water colour pencils & glitter glue.
The papers are quite dark so the sketch is hard to see- maybe I should have used more lighter papers with them- oh well too late now! Hope you like it anyway..

Don't forget to pop on over to the SWU blog site & take a look at the online classes- still not too late to sign up for these 2 weeks classes- the fun started last night with an on line chat session & challenge set by the lovely Monica, and continues today with another challenge . Each day for the next 2 weeks there will be either a challenge, on line chat or projects to make & upload onto the SWU Challenge site- but you have to be in to win it!!!

Will pop back later with some cards I made with a kit I got from Crafts U Love's birthday weekend- I was inspired by Paula Pascual, who was demonstrating, along with Kim Piggott in the shop at the time.

Catch you later..

Hip hip hooray....

I have my car back, looking good as new!!

Well I actually got it back on Tuesday and had the hire car collected on Thursday. Unfortunately, I have to pay for damage to the alloy wheel on the hire car, as I damaged it when I was coming back from CUL last Saturday. I decided to take the back way back home via Roffey & was pushed off the road on one of the winding & narrow bits of road, ending up down a gully in the road!
I didn't even notice it until they did the walk around check that they do, when they take the car back- luckily its on my DH credit card!!

I had an interview for a job on Weds afternoon- still waiting to hear if I have got through to the next interview & a 'cook off'. That I 'm not looking forward to at all!
I am now officially unemployed- and the thought is scary, as I have never not had a job since I left college, many moons ago! I hope something comes along soon.

Just to remind you that the SWU on line challenges start tonight for the next fortnight- have you signed up yet?? If not- why not..... go on over to the blog site & take a look- you'll have a great time.

Tonight the launch party starts with live chat & challenges at 7.00pm- I can't make tonight as I'm going out on my leaving meal with some of my colleagues- but hope everyone that does join them tonight has a good time.

Well catch you later as have a huge great basketful of ironing to do!
