A bit o' this and a bit o' that

Oops I didn't post this yesterday so pretend it is still Sunday!! :)
It's been a funny old day today, we went to check out our local car boot venues. You know how much cr*p you hoard, well I've been having a blitz whilst my computer was poorly. Now what do you do with all the stuff? Well one mans rubbish is another mans treasure so we went to see which venue would be best to sell our items. Husband has kindly been persuaded/agreed to do it so hopefully that will be a few more pounds to go to our new bed fund.

Well the next stop was the bed shops ... I felt quite uncomfortable trying beds out with hubby and with sales people hands on hips looking at us! It isn't as though we are going to run off with one now is it. Four shops later, leaflets galore and one sales person saying the deal with only be for today and trying to throw in all she could to seal the deal!!!! Nah gotta sleep on it (pardon the pun!) Anyway with the brain whizzing around with pocket sprung, anti this and that, memory foam, coils etc. I decided to head to my little haven.

Aaaahhh that is better, sorry if I bored you ..... another colour combo I don't do that often. Funny how we always seem to stick to what we know/like ourselves isn't it?


Colour Create challenge - Fushia Green & white (make your own flowers)

Just Magnolia - Anything goes

Allsorts Challenge - free and easy.

Stampalot Challenge - Anything goes.

Ooops, the picture is a little wonky (and slightly blurry?!!! - gotta invest in a new camera) - I've used papers which were a freebie from a magazine. Handmade flowers again, papers from the Papermill, Magnolia Stamp & MS punches.

Hope you all have a fab weekend.

  2. Gorgeous card Sarah, and the colour combo is really really pretty.
    Beautiful flowers and sweet little Tilda.
    Good luck with the boot sale. I did one about 13 years ago and we made a fortune out of kiddies toys, which the kiddies split between them and then spent..funny how they didn't want to get out of bed early to do the boot sale though!

    Love Elaine xx
