Very quick one...

Oh I know, it's a bit rubbish!  I have also made a DT card today but I can't show it yet... that took me about 5hrs what with running up and down the stairs to break up arguments, provide whatever the boys were pestering for, sweep sand off the kitchen floor (sent hubby out for a water table and he came back with a sand & water one instead... kids love it but agh at the state of the floor!)... well, you get the idea!  Last week hubby was off work, so it wasn't too stressful getting things done, but I'm on my own with the little darlings this week... let's just say I'm not having much fun so far!


I'll stop moaning now, I promise!  Here's the quickest card ever... using a Stampendous 'agapanthus cluster' cling stamp and a background stamp from IndigoBlu, stamped in Memento inks.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up, and should have been stamped a bit further away from the flowers I think.  Added a pearl from my stash.

Back with two slightly better cards tomorrow... apologies again for being so behind with comments, I'm slowly catching up!

Well I think its a very elegant card! Love the colours and the stamps. Know what you mean about getting distracted from cards while trying to deal with small people. Thankfully no-one for her to argue with in our house (apart from us!) but it does mean I have been keeping her entertained a lot! Imagine me being a frog bouncing around the kitchen and you get the picture! Sarah
