Friday already where has the time gone

Girls, I can't believe I've not blogged in over a week, oh me thats just not good enough, been hectic here, too many things going on and not enough time, not crafted much this week either.
Adam has just come back from his belt test at TaeKwanDo and has been promoted to 7th Kup, yellow belt with green stripe, he really enjoys it and seems to be quite good at it, so hopefully it's something he can keep up when he's solder.
Right off to colour in some images and try and put this card together.

Manga Christmas

The much eagerly awaitied Manga Christmas images are now available over at Funky Kits, go get them girls, I ordered mine this morning and they are already dispatched and winging their way towards me as I speak, thankfully no postal strike here in Scotland so hopeful they will be with me tomorrow.

Nothing much happening with us at the moment, Errol started painting our en suite so mayhem reigns again. LOL, but I know it'll be worth it in the end.

SFTW Week 13

Evening Ladies, Well I've made a card or two over the last few days, still not feeling 100% but a lot better than I was, well anything would be an improvement to be honest.

Image - Baby Rocker from Stampendous
DP - Nursery Boys Stack from DCWV
Cherish Sentiment - Polly craft
Ink - Stampin up

Also used Tim Holtz distressing inks, cuttlebug, cuttle alphabet dies and cropodile.
