life is HECTIC!!!!

Well as i said my life is hectic right now, we are all gearing up for our Yom Kippur fst on Saturday and i am counting the days till my move into my very OWN house.
Today i tackled our store room, it is amazing the kinda junk we all hang onto in the hope of needing it someday.  I threw out a vacuum cleaner, still working, just outdated and been replaced, a computer monitor, fax, copier and scanner that ran out of ink so was put in the store room about three years ago, when it went into the storeroom my Mr said i may want that one day for my office, YEAH RIGHT! well all the maybe's and may need are now at the Hospice charity shop, gone and forgotten, wait till he finds out!
After slaving like a demon all day i decided to take time out to do some crafting just for fun and made a card for the challenge on the Saturated canary cahllenge blog, what fun this was to color, the lines are so fine and the image was really dainty, love this.
the papers are from the never ending stash and these are Prima, i added loads if flowers and some  punched leaves from a Leone Em punch, and one fo my big ass bows.
Thats it for now friends hopefully i wont be missing for too long
