Messy Workdesk


Last night, i went to the cinema with a friend to see 'A Long Way Down' starring the gorgeous  Pierce Brosnan and we enjoyed it, in a funny sort of a way !. Tomorrow we are going to Borde Hill Gardens, a place i have never been too, but it's supposed to be good and they have a children's area, so that will keep H entertained :-)

It's Alan's birthday on Thursday and so therefore i thought i had better make him a card !!, so i picked this Gruffies image and sentiment from 'Fun In The Sun JSHM058', mind you there is one thing missing from the image, and that's the numerous chocolate wrappers, that he likes to munch through when he's stressed :-), the papers are very old : Making Memories - 'Cosmopolitan Collection', i've used my : Dienamics - 'Fishtail Flags' again - gee i'm so glad i got them, the punched edge is : MS - 'Embossed Zigzag' and the buttons are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

House Mouse - where the Challenge is : 'Anything Masculine For Challenge HMFMC 166'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Sketchie Free For All - i've used this week's sketch'

Simon Say's Stamp Wednesday - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes With Buttons'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No: 241 is 'Beary Nice'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave would be most appreciated, luv Sam x
