No Day Off For Me Then!!

~~~I have blog candy on offer, especially for anyone who loves stamps and cupcakes, please click my blog header if interested!~~~


Well, so much for my promised day off to craft!
I spent the morning washing the walls in the hall and then cleaning up the wood on the landing floor (its a good size!) ready for staining!
One of the cats, Midge (seal point Siamese in picture) has had such a good time on the wooden floors, running and jumping about just like Pepe Le Pu with his tail up in the air, I think he enjoys the sound of his pawsteps on the hard floor - very funny! It sounded like a herd of elephants from downstairs!
I am exhausted!
In fact its easier going to work! LOL, but don't tell them that, its our secret!
We have stained and varnished the floors this afternoon, and in between drying times I have managed to make this card- I had to bring supplies down into the dining room to do this - upstairs is sooooooo out of bounds!
The cats are all being catsat - I have two asleep in the rocking chair in the dining room and the rest are entertaining teenage son in the kitchen!
I'll be glad when its done!
I have entered this card into two challenges, Polka Doodles which has a great sketch to follow and Stamping for the weekend which is to use the colours pink and grey!
Papers all from Polka Doodles Candydoodles and Sugar Birdies CD's, stamps used are MME, Bloom and Grow, and Simon Says Stamp, Sentiments.

Tomorrow is another day, a crafty one I hope!!!!!! [hysterical laughter]

Keep well
