That wailing you heard would've been me!!

Did you, by any chance, hear a hideous screeching noise today? Well, I've been pretty blooming miserable for the last couple of weeks so I decided to cheer myself up by listening to some music whilst I crafted. What more could a girl want than to listen to Florence and Machine, eat hummus and make a purple card  - all at the same time. I thrashed about the house, singing (wailing) into my microphone (breadstick) busting some pretty miraculous moves for a woman of my age (not sure the window cleaner enjoyed the sight). Absolutely the best day I've had for ages. To top it off my daughter got star of the week at school. Way to go!

Enough rambling! This is what I created in and amongst all the wailing and munching.
This is another Krista Smith lovely; Pink Punkette. How fab is she? I love, love, love purple. I don't know why I haven't used it in ages? The papers are Papermania and Chocolate Baroque 'Love Letters' a much neglected download I got ages ago.The leaves are the foliage die form Spellbinders. And look, I made one of those ribbon flowers that I've been wanting to try for ages. It needs work but it was fun - I'm sure crafting Goddess Sue Wilson has a tut on her blog. The purple jute (?) and flowers are from WOC. I've used the Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die again because I like it!!

I've spent the last two weeks on the verge of giving up crafting altogether but making this card and singing into my breadstick has made me much cheerier. I'm going to enter this into the Kaboodledoodles challenge because it was their idea to make a purple card, and at the fabby Party Time Tuesday's where it's 'Anything Goes'.

I'm off to sing again - breadsticks at the ready ladies - altogether now ....... ' You hooooo got the love, you got the love . ........'

And it's NCIS tonight - woohoo! Big hugs, have a soopa doopa weekend, Jayne xx

Super card Jayne. You really made me laugh. If I tried anything like that you'd be sending flowers and bringing grapes to the hospital. Love your style! :) LOL
