Stampin' Royalty Challenge

This is the sketch for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge.                 Luckily I made my entry last night as I've had a nightmare of a day today. It didn't start too well when I went back to sleep after feeding the dog at 6am, and it's felt like I've been trying to make up for lost time all day. As well as this I've lost my mojo and have no creativity in my brain what so ever, and cant even match two colours together. I hope it will come back soon, as the last time this happened it went on for months and nothing could inspire me!!!!!!! Fingers crossed that over the weekend it will return.   
Anyway,this is what I came up with.   After making the cards for the OLW at Simplicity, I was missing my BS, so just had to get it out and cut some labels and flowers for this one.

 Recipe : Card stock is SU Whisper White,Lavender Lace,and Orchid Opulence
 Stamps : SU Curvy Verses
 Inks : SU Orchid Opulence
 Tools : Big Shot & dies, Martha Stewart and Fiskars punches
 Extras : Patterned paper,ribbon bow,and gems from my stash

Today has not been a good day............I've been out all morning, and then went rushing to mum's to water the garden pots and conservatory plants to get home for the tennis.....well,what is it they say "More haste, less speed"!!!!!, never a truer word was spoken.As I'd turned the outside hosepipe water on (which is controlled by a stopcock tap in the new extension being built) and walked back outside through the extension and conservatory to do the watering, the nozzle at the end of the hose was turned off,so the pressure built up in the pipe causing it to blow its connection at the inside tap, pouring gallons of water into the new extension which had become the dumping ground for garden chairs etc. and building equipment. By the time I'd realised why there was no water coming out of the hose and had gone back inside the place was flooded............I could have cried.
Some of the building supplies stored in the extension were too heavy for me to move so I could only mop up what I could reach.I'm praying that this predicted heatwave will happen tomorrow so it will help matters before the folks get back on Sunday evening.

Sorry for ranting and moaning,but now I've got it out of my system I'm starting to feel a bit better.

I'm still finding my way in this blogging lark,and this morning my friend Jacqueline has shown me how to do the labels and blinkies etc, so I hope I can catch up with things over the weekend and make my blog more appealing.

As always, thank you so much for dropping by,and I hope I haven't scared you away.
Hope to see you again soon. Bev.x


  1. Oh Bev, you poor thing - I can imagine how you felt when you saw what had happened but mistakes happen and you've done all you can to clear up. We are set for a heatwave on Sunday so you'll be able to get those windows open and the chairs out in the sun to dry if you can manage them!

    Your card is fab - if this is an example of you with no mojo I don't think you need to worry! Love the shades of purple, the background stamping and those flowers are gorgeous! Vx
