I survived!!!!

Hi ya folks I have made it back I can hold my held high and say I survived, what the hell am I bleating on about, well I am referring to the two week Easter break that my kiddies have just had. They have gone back today and I think they were well and truly ready for it. Now don't get me wrong I love my kiddiewinkles dearly and treasure every moment I get to spend with them but by the middle of the second week I think they had had enough of me and I felt that perhaps I may have been drowning in Transformers toys and build a bear clothes and I think at one point I may even have been lost under a mound of cut out shapes that my darling daughter took great pleasure in cutting out and distributing throughout the house!!!!
Well today I managed to get a card done, but no housework, aah well in the grand scheme of things I weighed up what was best for my sanity and went the crafty route just to have a little me time and I must say it did the trick.

Anyway this is what I came up with and yes its another easel card!!

Papers used - Daisy & Dandelion and Papermania Signature
Sentiment - Daisy & Dandelion
Pearls - From Elaine at Quixotic Paperie (link on my sidebar)
Image - Gorjuss Girls stamp from Funky Kits (link on my sidebar)
I'm going to enter this into a couple of challenges. Firstly Cupcake Craft Challenges which this week is a colour theme of 'Red and White' and also Friday Sketchers which is a fab sketch and one I can see me using again and again.
Right well then catch ya later guys and I hope you are catching some quality crafting time wherever you may be.
Take care
