Custard In The Sugar Bowl......Hehehehe

First I'd like to apologise,weekends are always really bad for me, i take a drug called Methotrexate every Friday before bed, it's to control the Rheumatoid Arthritis, while it does a really good job it also causes chronic nausea, and while my poor hubby Mark spends most of the weekend cleaning i lay there feeling really sleep most of the time.... i just thought i explain this as most weekends unless i schedule a post there won't be one.. I have to take the MTX on a Friday before bed otherwise I'm not fit to go to work on Monday morning...

I also have a cry for help, I'm creating two cards for a friend at work, I've been making her daughters cards since the day they were born and this year is no different, however, I've had an order or rather a request from one of the girls that they'd like Disney Princess cards, however i don't have any Disney Princess rubber stamps, is there someone out there who would be willing to post me two or three stamped images, I'll return the favour for the person who does this for me, you'll be making a little girl very happy.... I would need them quite soon though, her birthday is at the beginning of February..... so if there is anyone who is willing to help please e-mail me on

Now down to business, The Sugar Bowl has a challenge on this week using three papers and three embellishments...Three being the theme, and there are some fabulous stamps on offer by a wonderful artist Mary Hall, well i hope mine counts, but I'll probably buy them anyway. I created this on Friday but didn't get a chance to create a post before bed time... I'd been dying to use this stamp since the day it arrived, i have to admit, i love the Soft Centers stamps, nine in all, and I've been buggin hubby for the other eight all weekend but he just got me £50 worth of SU so i guess I'll have to wait for a week or two... Custard In The Sugar Bowl how fabulous does that sound..hehehehe Porridge In The Sugar Bowl just has to come next...hehe

I used October Afternoon papers and Bazzill card for my three papers/card i love these colours they really cheer me up, it's so dark and horrid outside so these are nice and bright... The flowers and buttons were from my blogging buddy Claudia, she always sends the most yummy scrummy embellishments, my third embellishment was the ribbon/lace, (the ribbon was from Claudia too..) i stitched them together using my Janome Mini, if you don't have one of these get one, i can't use a sewing machine to save my life, there too fast for me, but this little mini machine works at a much slower pace and is a dream, i don't think I've made a card and not used it since i got it as a pressie from my son...

Well that's all from me for this evening, i can go blog hopping in the morning before i go to work will give me some inspiration for the rest of the week... It's hubby's birthday tomorrow so I'm off out for dinner tomorrow night...yummy can't wait, lobster is such a treat...

Ingredients: October Afternoon CS ~ Bazzill CS ~ Flowers & Buttons From Claudia ~ Stamps ~ Prisma Pencils Sansodor & Stumps ~ October Afternoon Bookplate ~ Ribbon From Claudia ~ Lace Hobby Craft.

Paul takes Methotrexate once a week they say that it is a good suppressant for his chrons. he takes his on a Sunday as he has to take folic acid the day before to help with the absorption he is lucky it is one of the only meds that doesn't make him sick....I'm so sorry to hear that you feel icky with it.
Take care hun. big hugs RAchxx

Aw bless you Tina, what a rotten way to have to spend the weekends just to be well enough to go to work on a Monday, you poor thing.

Love your card sweetie, wow the colours are divine! The image is so sweet too.
