One sheet of paper and pearls

Hello Everyone,

Well that weekend went fast...mind you I worked hard at my daughters on Saturday, cleaned out a huge area of bark off the play area and cleaned all the weeds out of it, raked it all level again, re matted it, and put all the bark back, then we tackled the old kitchen units behind the garage and took a ride to the dump...5 hours we all worked, and the boys were amazing,especially Zac, what a machine for some one so young. He is so blonde and fair skinned,when we finished and he took his hat off the dirt was thick in his eyebrows and all over his face, he did look funny, with black eyebrows...yesterday we chilled at the movies [their treat] and watched a re take of 'Journey to the centre of the earth' and was so pleased with myself....I never nodded off....

So today though.. it is Monday, and time for a new MAKE IT MONDAY  
This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at Cupcake Cards & Crafts!






The wonderful prize this week is £5 worth of paper collections in downloadable form!
 
For my card.. to hopefully inspire you.. I used one sheet of paper, an image and a few pearls....
 
 
There it is...a cute puppy in a box...what a neat gift.

Pink card base, and a sheet of pink paper called 'just ducky baby 'from provocrafts.
The cute image is from The stamping boutique...one of the images I won.



The puppy is coloured with pencils...and the box paper pieced, even the ribbon on the box was card pieced..lol..as I use the scraps from the base....a few pearls, and a sentiment, one of my favourites from a cheap clear set I bought ages ago...love the font.



And...I added a thin pink ribbon, from my candy win from Vicky...so there you have it..

Now the part which I find so difficult...my pick from last week and we are back over the 200's...so it takes a bit of time, such wonderful projects to gaze at...but found this little honey....

#17...FAYE   gorgeous work....a beaded card...



So pretty Faye...

I read all the comments on the MIM blog, to the DT's ..and thankyou...such lovely comments, really appreciated them all...

So thats it...I'm off to work today...will see you tomorrow.....
Happy crafting and lets gets those cards and projects linked up at  MAKE IT MONDAY

Hi Chrissy, haven't visited in a bit so caught up today... your life is busy and full of challenges...but you seem to conquer!!!!! I was reading about your 'man'...I had one of those a number of years ago. The only thing he left me was a bit of bleach. I spent 2 hours just in the shower scrubbing it clean lol. I made a decision to take a trip to Coles to arm myself ready for battle with the rest of the house. So can understand what you went through. Good for you for sticking with it.
As always your cards are an inspiration...love your newly aquired craft room desk and book case...we can always use more storage lol Have a great day :)
