Well I now have some fancy goldfish and a couple of Algae eaters living in the fish tank.

Ive got my challenge card finished but Im going to havev to wait until the weekend to get the pics up of it as my camera is not at home with me at the moment and I refuse to use my mobile phone camera as it is not the best for these sorts of pics. Roll on December and phone upgrade. Its a great phone simple to use etc but it is well used. Its fallen down the stairs more times than I care to remember and it still keeps struggling on. Im amazed it survived the fall when I got thrown off the horse in January.

Work Underway

Im busy working away at another card for a weekly Challenge. Fingers crossed I will have the pics up of the card by the end of Friday :0) I would take a pic of work in progress but the desk looks like a bomb has just gone off and I still can not find the one thing I was looking for (typical really)

Thankfully Im not at work today was really busy yesterday and after flat out working at work I went straight to the gym and then swimming. To say I was tired by 10pm is an understatement. At least I know it is doing my leg some good. Im riding again on Wednesday and really looking forward to it.

I also appear to now have a fishtank in my room as well as the hamster cage. Hopefully on Friday there will be some fish in it. Decided to start off with Goldfish then maybe look at Tropical in the future. I have not kept fish for about 10-12 years Im sure it will be fine though.

I did get this card made for my riding instructor over the weekend but I seem to have forgotten to post it (D'oh)

Penny Black Week 112 Challenge

After spending all day yesterday and most of today working on the car with an angle grinder (rust prevention methods) I decided to have a rest and get some card making done :0)

I managed to get an entry done for this weeks Penny Black challenge which is READY STEADY COOK.

The recipe given was:

1 - Circle
2 - Paper
and 3 - flowers

Here's my creation:

I used some greeny card stock to make the card as I could not find my card blanks anywhere they all appear to have done a runner. Both backing paper are from My Minds Eye Summer Pack. The flowers were some I already had made up in the stash and I went a bit to town with some distress inks. Im pleased I got to use my new scallop nesties for this project as well as my crop a dile.

In other news leg appears to be going ok just swelling up and Im actually feeling really great :0)
