At Last!!


Finally got round to some card making this week, managed to get 3 cards done while hubby has taken kids out. This card is for 4 challenges ish. Technichally it's 3 challenges and 1 huge apology!
The 1st challenge is Bee Crafty Downloads#35 "all about the image". The 2nd is Crafty Ann's challenge#20"lazy hazy days of summer"(if I can remember where I saw it), and 3rd Prairie Fairy Fridays #30 "anything 3D"( I hope the board letters count:D).
The image is called "Bee Happy" from CJ at Cowgirl Up Digital Stamping Ranch, and that's where the huge apology is going! I am supposed to be on CJ's DT, but a few weeks ago I chucked a big mardy fit and left her and my DT colleagues while I had a big sulk. I hope you will all believe me when I say that this is not my normal behaviour, in fact I shocked myself. Can't remember the last time I stamped my foot and threw a hissy fit. I don't want to go into too much detail, but last year was a very stressful one for me, and I thought I'd coped with it very well, but obviously not as well as I'd thought. Lot's of little things that I would normally have brushed aside just built up inside me and Boom!! So I can only apologise publically to CJ and the rest of the DT for my unprofessional behaviour, and hope you will all accept my apology. So the 4th challenge is at Cowgirls Up"Bugs and Animal" cos I hadn't done my dt card (obviously NOT for the prize draw:D)

  6. Hi Gina first can I say how much I love your card that image is fabulous I love the colours and your design thank you so much for joining our challenge at Crafty Ann's.

    I think you are so lovely to put your apology on your blog but I think that the majority can understand that stress does get to us and it only takes a little thing to make an explosion.

    Take care

  18. What a sweet card ! It really made me smile when i saw it :)
    And you know what, you have all the right to throw a fit now and then. We (girls) are expected to be able to deal way too much, we have to work a job, take care of house, home and kids, be social, be ready for everything and anything and skip around smiling and whistling whilst juggling all of the above. We are underpayed and undervalued and we do not nearly get enough compliments. No wonder we explode now and then :D We could try to vent a bit sooner though, as not to scare ourselves with our fits ><
    Anyways, you should be proud of yourself, you are a wonderful and talented person :)
