Yes I am still alive!

I know it has been a VERY long time between posts but I have been a working girl and creating has taken a back seat to more fundamental tasks (ie eating and sleeping, feeding, bathing and talking to the kids, interacting with DH)

Anyway here are a couple of cards that I have managed to get together recently.

This is the card I made a few weeks ago for Mum and did not like and said I'd take apart - well I did - and this is what I came up with instead.

I am much happier with this one but it is still not much like the plan I had in my head - oh well.

And this card is for a friend's son's 4th birthday this week. The image is a serviette - still my favourite way to make cards.

I've been tagged

Keryn tagged me last week (or was it the week before) and I have just not had a chance to respond until now. She was pretty lucky that I follow her blog so closely to know that I had been tagged.

Anyway here goes

1. Find the nearest book:
I had a dig around on the computer desk and found one that my husband has borrowed from his Dad.

2. Name the book & the author:
Made In Japan - Akio Morita

It is the story of the Sony company.

3.Turn to page 123.
Yep I've got page 123.

4. Go to the 5th sentence on the page & copy out the next three sentences onto your blog.

"My travel agent had booked the hotel and I didn't know anything about how to go about changing it. The maitre d'hotel assigned me to a corner table in dining room, which suited me fine at the time; I didn't have to talk to anybody, just observe.
I went to the Vienna Philharmonic and there I met the great von Karajan, who was already a famous conductor, of course, and he asked me, "What do you do, Mr Morita? "

5. Tag 3 more people.
The only people who I know read my blog - at least skim read it - are Keryn who tagged me and Kelly whom she also tagged and Gillian who tagged Keryn (Did you get all that? or have I just confused you?). So if you stumble upon this and have not been tagged before (or not for a while) please consider yourself tagged.

20/20 and Monogram dares

Whoopee - I made it in time - well not late anyway!!!!

Last weeks DCM dare was "20/20" - use 20 things on a card - here I stitched 20 little flower sequins onto black card with a black bead centre, layered it onto orange to make it stand out a bit and then onto white card with a sentiment.

The little extra this week was to use a monogram on a card - this one looks totally different in my head - heaps better - but I was adament that I would get a dare done on time today so here it is anyway. I am going to take it apart and do something to it later to make it better. It is Mum's birthday in a couple of weeks so this card is for her (obviously I hear you say) - well the new and improved one will be.

And then I had a wee play for some ATC's I need to design this month - one for St Patricks Day and an Easter one. These backgrounds are chalks used with some stencils and now I have to work on what I am going to add. The chick is pretty cute don't you think? even if he is a bit hard to see - chalks don't show up too well in the scan.
