Second Post of the Day ! Papertake Weekly Challenge !

I spent the entire morning (from 8.45 am til 12 noon) trying to tackle my ever growing ironing pile. I only stopped at midday to take Ski tap dancing. Would you believe I still have a huge basket to do yet !! Can you believe we have that many clothes ?!!!!

When my DH arrived home from work at lunchtime he thought he had walked into a laundry ! I asked if I had earned some time off for good behaviour this morning and he said yes ! Wooo hooo, into the dining room I go to my goodies !! With DH in bed (he was up at 3am to go to work) and the girls upstairs playing with aliens (don't ask !!), I settled down for the afternoon with a fantastic sketch by Dawny P on Papertake Weekly.

Here is my take on her great sketch :

The base card is white Bazzill.

The patterned papers are My Minds Eye "The Laundry Line". I treated myself to these scrummy beauties the other day and my goodness, do they smell ! The whole house smells and I wouldn't even say it was a nice smell - hope it goes soon otherwise I shall have to put them in the shed !!

The red card is Core'dinations.

The image and sentiment is by The Greetings Farm and is "Rock the Farm". I have paper pieced Anya's hat, dungarees and bows. The rest has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The raffia ribbon is from Hobbycraft.

The brads are from my stash.

I also managed to decorate the inside too :

The journaling stamp is by Little Yellow Bicycle. These are fantastic as they have different corners that slot into the gap (iykwim !). This has been stamped with Brilliance coffee bean and pearlescent poppy.

The dew drops are by Robins Nest.

Just a little titter ! When they all decided to come downstairs Fizzy put her arms up for a cuddle. She had this very funny smell about her and when I asked what it was I was told in unison "alien juice". I didn't ask !!!!

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and see you back here tomorrow for Colour Create.
