Feeling A Bit Better

Well, i am feeling abit happier about the situation now i know more about it and am staying away from the trouble for a few days! We might even close the shop early b'cos of it all!

Haley michaels sister has been really helpful over the last few days.... she has helped me stay sane and see sense so about an hour ago i decided to make her a lil pressie & card to say thank you!

What do you think....??

This is my first attempt using my new Bind It All and i must say i am impressed... haleys fav colour combo is beige & blues so i thought this would be perfect... oh and the card is made using a stampendous new stamp (available on our website) .... she loves pirates so i thought this would be great for her.
We just walked round her place and gave it to her and she was surprised but very grateful for the kind thought, and couldn't believe i had made the book.... she thought i had bought it! lol. I did wrap it in some nice doodlebug paper too!
Supplies - Dream Street Paper, QK Vixen Alphabet, Primas, Assorted Ribbons, Bind it All, Brads, Stampendous Owl Stamp & Pebbles Inc Rub Ons.

Last Nights Creations

Well here are last nights quick creations. The first one is a wedding bella card that i totally scraplifted from SCS, i did change a few things tho :) . I just love the red, black & white combo, quite romantic looking. The embossing is using the new Sizzix Embossing Plates in the cuttle, they have some really funky designs and the ribbon is by creative impressions.

The second is perfect for Michael, cos of the racing thing, this one is a super quick one, a bit of the glitter stack paper & a jelly charm thingy from MeiFlower, i did get the idea from there stand too, but last night i was just tired i needed a bit of help!

Poorly Mama

God i felt so ill last night, i had been feeling pretty ill at the shop yesterday.. i had no energy and could hardly even pick Lissy up. Last night i ended up lying on the floor most of the evening. My back hurt so much so i thought lyimng flat would help and it did. I really thought i was going to have to get the dr out as i was freezing cold for quite a few hours and had a beaming headache. I did fall asleep and when i woke up i was boiling hot! lol. Lissy kept on saying Poorly Mama and looking worried, whilst stroking my head!!! I am feeling a bit better now tho, and i hope to get some cards done tonight!

When i started making this one i knew how i wanted it and like alot of my ideas they totally change, but i am quite pleased with how it turned out. I just love this new paper i bought, its by Kelly Pannchi (sp?!) by Sandylion. I think we are going to have to stock it, they also do a blue range too, gonna have to get that too!

Todays Card Sketch Challenge

Well this is my effort for todays card sketch challenge.....i am trying to use my bellas more and todays sketch was perfect for the CM Oval Cutter that i have borrowed from Jo, i must say i really like it!

I spent most of the morning tidying the lounge and just spent the last 45 mins making it a mess... with lissys help of course!!

Well the diet is going ok, i had been pretty good just sticking to 1 bowl of cereal a day altho yesterday i was starving so i caved in and had some real food. My Kettlebell came yesterday and boy is that hard work..... and i am still using my bike.... need to use it more but i just get so exhausted after being at the shop all day!
Today will be a test as i am at home all day so i will have to stay away from temptation!
