A spoonful of sugar etc & guest designer news!

Well, I've had a busy few days getting organised for my eldest son's birthday, which was on Sunday, so this is the first chance I've had to upload this card. It's one that I made for my mum to give to Morgan for his birthday, following the sketch at A Spoonful of Sugar and it also fits the challenges at Charisma Cardz (Get Sporty) and Three Clovers (use a number). The image is from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers. I'm not sure where the papers are from, they've been stuck in a drawer for ages. The sentiment is computer generated - my printer has strangely started printing in red instead of black but luckily that fit quite well with this card! I coloured a strip of tulle with a blue promarker, and then added a number 7 (computer generated again) covered in red glitter, some gems and a button tied with thread.

I'm feeling a little stressed at the moment and some more hours in the day would be nice! I love getting orders, but I wonder why I can go a while with hardly any and then all of a sudden I have so many I don't know what to do first! And I only have a small amount of time each day, when my youngest son goes for his nap, and whatever time I manage to get in the evenings. I wish I was a quicker crafter but unfortunately I'm quite slow! On top of all my orders, Pav's work have been asking for some good luck cards to go in my box there, for people who are leaving... I'm trying not to panic!

I have some fab news that I'm really excited about - I was asked at the weekend if I'd like to be November's guest designer at Inspirational Card Sketches. I've been really disappointed to miss out on a few DT spots lately and have decided to give up applying for a little while as I'm starting to think I'm rubbish! So it's nice to know I'll have a whole month on the ICS team, I love working to sketches so I can't wait!
