Define Your Life

Finally I have been able to make a card that I want to do, everything is finished and ready to go off to the boutique tomorrow and also the baby knitting to the hospital...what a great feeling to have it all done! This card is for this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge! I love their sketches and look forward to them each week. If you haven't been and visited them yet - YOU NEED TO! I have also combined it with another favourite Challenge and that is, none other than - Mothermark's Tea Party Tuesday....and Dar-r-r-lings, you know how I love this one...unfortunately I missed last weeks Teaparty, it may have been due to the fact that it took 4 EVA to clean up the corgi's 'deposits' and convincing them that the little canine cutie was destined to be royalty. No problems though Dar-r-r-lings I have made up for it with this one - you see I stamped this rose twice - the first time with inks and the second with Versamark and clear embossed it...so that is one coat for lst week and one for this week - as both Teapots have roses on them!! I am so very, very sneaky, I do prefer to call it resourceful, especially with my breeding!

Now I have to say..I am staggered at some of the stories that have come with this weeks cards, all based in the Botanical gardens in Ireland and is you ask me - it all has a 'touch of the Blarney Stone' with it - 'to be sure, to be sure!! ' It is lovely to visit our friend Sabrina in her homeland (I have Irish blood too Sabrina, my Grandfather was born in Dublin) but I am not sure that Ireland is ready for this crowd!! This week I am being very demure and am keeping an eye out for those birds who love to leave their 'calling cards' along the way....customs confiscated my hat as I had hidden the treats for the Teaparty among the artificial flowers and their 'Sniffer Dogs' discovered them - rats!! I do believe that a warning had been sent out regarding SUSPECT CHOCOLATES, (eally dar-r-r-lings, how revolting!) so they were being overly cautious!! So I am coming through the back door....can you see those birds hovering near the rose...they have been lightly sponged and one raised on 3D Foam Dots...the same as the image...so this qualifies for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge as well...

That's it from me tonight...I am going to be a 'party pooper' (nothing to do with last weeks cards Dar-r-r-lings) I am exhausted from my battles with customs and need to re-energise...perhaps I will take a stroll around the gardens, maybe I can find a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow - or NOT!! LOL!

Thanks for visiting...and for your comments - you make my day!! God bless you!
