3 Challenges Today :-)


I had an awful day at work today (I work in a doctors surgery) - the letters for the flu clinics have just been sent out & everyone (& his wife) must have phoned up to make an appointment today even though the clinics are not until October & Monday is the busiest day of the week anyway (people making ordinary appointments, requesting vists, ordering perscriptions etc after the weekend). Felt like I had gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson when I finished lol my head has only just stopped spinning.

I'm soo excited though cos it's my birthday next week & I'm getting a new computer which came today! (although it's still in the box lol - I'm waiting for my son Craig to visit cos he's going to set it up for me). I will have lots more room for dowloads & stuff :o)

I mangaged to make one card tonight which is for 3 challenges: I used the sketch from CPS, Cute Card Thursday theme this week is "Pretty in Pink" & the Penny Black Saturday challenge is "one for the girls".

I haven't got that many Penny Black stamps though I do love them so I tried to make this one (Cinnamon) look a bit different by cutting the image out. I used more free papers from Papercraft Essentials magazine. I chalked a white flower pink& added chipboard to the centre. I finished off with a rub-on greeting.

You combined the same two challenges as I did; Cute card thursday and Penny Black Saturday. It seemed quite obvious that pink card and one for the girls can be the one and same. :)

Great, girly card!

Hello Tracey
Loving this card, im sorry you had such a busy day at work. Seeing it from the receptionists point of view makes it easier to understand why so many of them look a little less than happy at times! Hugs Linda x.
