In the Pink

We decided to go to bed a bit earlier last night so we would be up earlier today, so we could get to bed early tonight to ease Steve back into getting up at 4:30 a.m. for work tomorrow...lol, bit of a mounthful there, sorry. Anyway, we went to bed just before midnight, thats early for us of late, but then Steve's youngest, who is 23, came home at 2:30 a.m. very drunk. She isn't the quietest of people at the best of times, she'd brought a friend and the chatting, laughing and doors banging was enough to wake us up. Steve went to make a cuppa, had a word with her about keeping a bit more quiet, and all went downhill from there...lol. She ended up making more noise the quieter she tried to be, lol, I'm sure it's happened to us all when we've had a few drinks, try to be quiet and it just isn't happening no matter how hard you try. She dropped a glass on the kitchen floor, slate tiles so glass went everywhere, then spilt all the milk, woke up Mollie who started barking and all we could constantly hear was Sssshhhh after laughter. I gave up, got up, went and cleaned the kitchen floor, though she'd picked up most of the big pieces of glass, there was still lots of shards some of which was now mixed in with milk, once it was safe for Mollie, let her out, put her back to bed, and I was now wide awake. So now on to the pink cards, which I made in the early hours...lol.

I mentioned the other day in a post that I'm doing a couple of cards for a friend of a crafting friend who wants to raise some money for Breast Cancer Awareness in memory of her mum. Well, here's the two I made:




I used my new Amy Butler K & Co Stamps and papers and coloured using copics, cut image with circle scalloped nesties. I've kind of followed this weeks sketch again from Sketch Saturday but turned the corners inwards. Finished with some little pink gems on the corner flowers.






Tilda is coloured with a mix of copics and sakura stardust for a little sparkle, cut with oval scalloped nesties and chalked the edges. Paper is from my scraps stash but I believe it's a DoveCraft paper. Added tie-ins to the corners and run funky pink wool around the edges. Embellished with heart and star buttons and a little sequin flower on each heart.


Well I went back to bed at 7 a.m. and got up again just after 11. Steve got up at 10, so our best laid plans didn't happen, but I think we're both still quite tired so will try and stay awake and have a really early night tonight. Charlotte's just got up, for a drink, she's not feeling too well, but has just apologised, but can't remember a bloomin thing not even how she got home..lol. It was her leaving night out from work, so I think she had a good time. She'll be moving to Manchester in the next couple of weeks to start her new job.


Boy what a long post, hope no one fell asleep..lol
