Just trying to keep busy...........

Oh boy, where do I begin. I went out yesterday (shopping)...........I don't get out much lately being on maternity leave with 3 kids (thank goodness 1 is in school) .................& once I got into the store I was like a kid in a candy shop! I didn't even know where to begin (to buy stuff) as I want to redo my daughters room (on a budget of course) & I want stuff for crafting & I want storage containers for my embellies & hubby needs stuff for his business..............oh man, my mind is racing!
In the meantime, however, I was able to pull this little card together. Took me 3 days, but hey as each day passed I realized I was eligible for more challenges. YAY!

The image is one I stamped from my friend Kelly over at Kelly's Kreative Korner & honestly don't know her name! I really should've wrote the name of the stamps when I stamped them, but of course I didn't!
I colored her with watercolor pencil crayons, baby oil and blending stumps. My new favorite technique!

The challenges for 'my little girl card' are Creative Inspirations Challenge (3 flowers, 2 DP & 1 ribbon), Cute Card Thursday (sketch), Pixie Dust Studio Challenge (tag it), Charisma Cardz Challenge (quote me), Dare U 2 Digi Stamp (flowers), & Stamp Something (Charmed Somethings). I am also entering this card in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge, of course I am not sure if this is a Gorjuss image or not, I suppose they'll let me know!!

So that's my card for today. And this is my purchase from yesterday. Yup, it is a holder for a man's (or woman's), nuts, bolts, screws, washers etc. I bought it & asked hubby if he would use it should it not work out for me!! He said sure.
BUT LOOK AT IT! IT'S FULL !  I have 3 empty compartments. I could honestly use another, except with bigger compartments like the ones on the bottom.
Hubby said he will mount this on the wall for me later! I am soooooooooooo happy!
(Yes, I got stuff for my daughters room too and will be organizing that later today, perhaps we;ll take before & after shots of that!)

Have a great day!

I love it Corr! I think the stamp is from All that Scraps-not sure, but it's super cute. Gotta go-my hubby has to help me put up shelves for all my goodies too! cheers:) Trish

Corry, what a lovely card. It's also eligible for the Totally Gorjuss challenge this week as that's to use a Gorjuss image. I remember finding it hard getting around with two children and not being well. My boys are now 17 (18 in August) and 13 (14 in September) and they spend more time looking after their poorly mum!!! How tables can turn eh? Just remember you need your "me" time which I think you use for making your cards. What a wonderful storage unit. Hope you find things better now - I'll come over and help if needs be!!! Take care, Kym xxx

Hey Corry the card is great and way to go on entering all of those challenges.

The stamp is called "Little Miss Attitude" who would have figured and it's from Sugar Nellie.

He's back in school today, snotty and all.. It's been snowing the past days here in Tromsø - i wonder where spring took it's way, all of a sudden??!!... Hugs, Hege
