Two Blue!

Yes today I have made 2 blue based cards, I usually use the usual pinks, purples, peach colours for female cards so thought it would make a change to use the blues.
My first card is for Tilda & Co this week there is a sketch to work from (I don't actually think I needed to add the circle but I like to sit the sitting images on something!! I think it's missing something but am not sure what? I wish I was clever enough to draw swirls or even stamp them if I had the stamps but I'm afraid of having a go and ruining my cards altogether!
My 2nd card of the day is for Papertake Weekly Katharina has supplied a fab sketch to follow!! I've used a Bella image that I received from someone when I first started stamping it's goes perfectly with my cocktail accessories which were part of my prize from Quick Cards Made Easy. She's drinking a 'blue hawaiin' with a cherry in the top (my fave!).

We had a 'first' yesterday, Lillie had a school friend over to play! I had been dreading it, I'm always embarrassed of my house, I know I shouldn't be or better still do something about it but I am. You see we are horders (well me more so than anyone) I don't like to throw things away, so we have too much stuff and not enough space, but if we had the space it still wouldn't be enough Lol..!! I have to be in the mood for ironing and do it when we need it rather than keep on top of it, so we end up with linen mountains that we need to 'hide' when people visit!! Oh I'm terrible and I admit it, you know the amount of clothes and shoes we have between us we could open up our own shop, seems like I buy new (I don't!) rather than iron old!!! Anyhow we met Lillie's friend Lily and her mum at the leisure centre and we left the 2 of them there for an 'Art Attack' session, afterwards I picked them up and due to the rain they had a picnic on the blanket in the living room. I had had a bit of a clear out of old toys and ones that had bits missing, the girls had put everything away and within 5 minutes of Lily's arrival you couldn't see any of the floor almost everything was out aarrgghh...!!!! But I did get them to clear it away without any fuss which was another first! So we've done it now so guess when they get back to school she'll want other friends round, let's hope the weather is fine then they can play outside haha...!

Two gorgeous cards here! I am loving these blues. As for the ironing - I used to be like you but now do it most DAYS as I hate doing it so much I got sick and tired of having 6 hours' worth hanging around! It got so bad the ironing had its own cupboard! Lol Lynn x
