Work Life balance

Work has been winning over the weekend. I discovered that I am still on the rota to preach next Sunday although I thought I had booked it off. Arg. As we are away this week I had to get it all done by Sunday evening and also spend time at another Church that I am helping find a new Minister. Today I had to go to Cambridge for a seminar which is why we are still at home although it is half term. I did manage a little crafty time yesterday and my balance will be life the rest of the week. We all went to see National Treasure yesterday at the Cinema. Enjoyable tosh.

Most of what I have crafted is for challenges to be revealed later in the week but I cam show you this
I participated in a challenge on the Scraptitude forum.
The challenge was embossing so out came two of my fave cuttlebug folders and some lovely bright cardstock (stampin up) and paper (KandCo). Note the knot on the white grosgrain. How neat is that. I only had to watch kwerner's how to film 10 times. And I won't tell you how many times I tied the knot...
The flowers are die cuts - the green slim ones that are like Sizzlits and the sentiment is Stampin Up too. A fair few Poundland foam pads were used as well
I may be able to pop in over the next few days otherwise it is a MASSIVE post on Sunday!

Have fun!

Beautiful card. Love the bright colour and the cheerie flowers.
