Bitsa Card 5!!!

.........and another 'bitsa' card.
This time I have used some offcuts of K & Co Blue Awning paper and some assorted flowers. For the flower centre I covered a brad with some of the paper and glazed with Glossy Accents.
The top looked a bit bare so I doodled the scroll and leaves then added just a tiny bit of Waterfall Stickles to pick up the blue.
The sentiment is diecut using a Cuttlebug die.

Poor old DD...what a way to spend your birthday. She was in bed until about 3pm and then back off out to work at 8pm but she just has tomorrow to do and then she is off for three weeks so we will make up for it then and maybe go out for the day.

I have actually tidied all of my workroom and can see the floor.....mmm not seen that for nearly two!!!
Tomorrow I shall pack up the Expression ready to go back to the shop. Not really explored it fully yet but I do like what I've tried so far and I love the two cartridges that came with it......Plantin and Accent Essentials. I can see lots of use for those.

Now I don't usually use my blog to 'rant' but I am so fed up at the minute with spam e mails. I do have the thing that sends them straight into a folder of their own but I still have to trawl through them all to make sure nothing went in that shouldn't and I am getting between 400 and 600 a day on the family email and 50 to 60 a day on my craft e mail. Some Casino sends blocks of nine at least twice a day and if I get another one wanting to show me Angelina Jolie naked I think I shall scream. Adding them to blocked lists just doesn't work.
If I could get hold of the idiots that do this well there wouldn't be enough of them left to make a Spam!!!

Not in the least bit sleepy so I am off up to my room where there is some heat......the fire has gone out down here and it's a tad nippy round me tootsies.

Bye for now
