It’s blowin’ a hooly here!!

If you don’t happen to be from Scotland then let me translate that for you… it’s very windy!!! It’s a real “staying in ” night here tonight, the rain’s lashing the windows. Perfect crafting weather in fact. I’m actually considering an early (by my standards) night. My MiL moved house yesterday and OMG – it was more stressful than when we moved ourselves. She’s only gone about 5 doors down the road but I don’t think she really grasped the concept of what downsizing actually means. Ok, the house is smaller but the contents appear to be about the same. And as anyone will tell you 2 into 1 does not go!!! By some divine intervention we did it but whatever slight inclination I may have had to hoard things is totally gone. I’m cured of keeping rubbish.

Anyway, I have self-medicated again tonight by prescribing “one large dose of cardmaking – to be taken orally” lol. I am still lurving the chocolate orange combo thing so am covering two challenges with this card. First I have used the lovely Sketch Saturday sketch and secondly have used my favourite colours – which qualifies me for the challenge at Stamp Something which is “Favourite Something”. This is my latest aquisition, one of the new Leanne Ellis stamps from Funky Kits. I have also used the gorgeous Stampin Up papers – just about run out so must stock up on them when I have my little party in a few weeks time!!

Right, Chris is playing MarioKart on the Wii so off to join him and make a total fool of myself!!!
