Fancy Finery

It is World Card Making Day today and that is all the excuse I need - LOL! Cleaning my desk is always the intention but hardly ever the completed deed - I start with great determination, but it does not take long to find something that inspires me and I am off creating....

like this divine digi from The Graphic Fairy

It has been sitting on my desk for months (and months and months and months....) and has been layered onto a Spellbinders Classic Oval LG using my Grand Calibur

Some delish DP, a lavish lace bow along with divine bling and this card is complete

and there you have it - how nice it is to see one UFO (unfinished object) completed and into the next one - I will be back with more to show you today - I am on a mission.....LOL!

My house looks like a Hospital Ward today - my three teenagers have come down with a NASTY Flu and high temperatures, after spending three days in bed I have moved them out into the loungeroon for a movie day - each one rugged up with the quilt and tissues - the coughing is continuous, but hopefully today they will turn a corner - as for me, I feel it is my duty to stay near them - so I have set up with my crafting supplies on the dining room table, far enough away to be in the ''firing line"!  I do have to add, I am not totally SLACK, it is only 9am and I have changed all of their beds with the frist load of washing on, so they are nice and fresh, done the b'fast run - for those who are feeling like it, medicated them all, got drinks and organised the inhalers and vapourisers...and did I mention that my DH is coming down with it too.....an interesting day here! LOL! 

Thank you for stopping by - it is lovely to see you - I am sure you won't catch anything  LOL!  I hope you have a great weekend and manage to join in with World Card Making Day at some level!  God bless you!

    This card is delightful and so quickly put together. That lace is wonderful!
    It's a struggle today, spin some luscious new fiber for an online frolic, or make cards. The spinning has won out so far, but it's only 2:30 in the afternoon here! Still plenty of time to make cards, too! =)
