Busy, busy, busy

Hi folks, sorry I have not been about, I am finding it quite difficult to settle into everyday life now that I am a lady of leisure. After being routined for the last 33 years, I really don't know where to start!! Anyway I have got through the lie-in phase and am now raring to go, well not quite raring but have a bit more enthusiasm than I did have, hence the early crafting yesterday morning resulting in my pjs being covered in Glamour Dust!! That was the start of this card, I then packed up my stuff and off I trundled to Wendy's of Stamps and Memories to chat and craft and managed to get Glamour Dust all over the floor there too!! I did have a lovely day though and managed to finish my card, yes only one, more chat than craft, whoops! I am going to enter this into the following challenges:

Creative Card Crew - Tis the Season
