Funny old day

Had a bit of a strange day today. I'm a bit embarrassed to say this ... especially on a week day... but I didn't get out of my jammies until after 12 pm!!!! Rocky kept banging on the kitchen door at stupid o'clock and I refused to go downstairs because I think now he realises if he does that I'll come running. He did this not so long ago and I think he senses there are foxes prowling around and wants to investigate. Well, he's not doing it on my sleep time!!
Had a few emails and phone calls to make and tidied up, vacuumed etc. I had to have a 100 word spread for Craft Focus magazine (a retailer's mag) for Friday of last week and I never got around to it. For some reason I couldn't think of anything to say about my stamps lol. Anywho, I called Emma at CF and she ended up asking me questions and before you know it, it was done and dusted :-D She's going to turn it into an amazing piece of editorial to go along with some pictures of the Nikki's and Ruby's I sent her...I also had to send her a head and shoulder shot of myself...ugh!!!
I finally got to make Sadie's Mother's Day card. I'd managed to make 2 images last night of the flowers...notice no crease used the second one today. For those of you who don't know me, Sadie was my cleaner about 23 years ago and she kind of ended up like a surrogate mom since mine was 6000 miles away. I had to retire her (she's 80 this year) about 6 or 7 years ago because she was getting arthritc and only ironing one of Pierce's shirt sleeves lol!! So now I see her once a week...we usually go out on a Thursday night to the Fort to Thornton's and have tea and an apple slice. Either that or we go to Rosso in Bothwell for a bowl of chips and we just chat away. I always make her a card and get her a flower/plant arrangement and her favourite Lindt choccies (the round ones in red paper). Here's the card....
I used one of my favourites...Bo Bunny pp
I'm much happier with this card than yesterdays although my big Sis left a comment calling me a nut head (that's better than some of the things she's called me when we were growing up!) and that the card was lovely. Thanks Trace :-D

Have you noticed anything new on my blog? Top left corner...Crafty Blogs button. I thought I'd give it a shot and I think I'm doing pretty good...when I got approved earlier today I started at 890 and when I started this post I was at 806!! I wonder if that's cuz I kept clicking on it I didn't...just kidding hee hee. The top 1, 2 and 3 blogs all have 200-300 hits every day...I think I only managed that once which was just after Stitches. If I'd been signed up I might have been number 1!

Deal or No Deal has just started and I always watch it while I'm getting dinner ready. I love that show and get really into it shouting and tearing up when they've lost the big one...I'm so sad lol.

Thanks for stopping by.

Catch ya later x
