Why Me?

I think this is a why me? day. I've done nothing all week and I thought I would get so much done today!! No chance!

I haven't made anything since Sunday so I thought great I'll get loads done today. 1st mistake was to read the papers. Then I had a look at some of my favourite blogs. Then I decided what I would do first. So I messed around and got a card made. So far so good. Then I took a photo...no problem. But....and you knew there was going to be a but didn't you? When I went to check it it said file error....what!!! Tried again and eventually the photo was there but none of the other photos that should have been on the memory card. Tried to upload the 1 photo to my laptop. No chance...nothing but error. So there seems to be one photo on the memory card but no way I can get it onto the laptop....grrr. So nothing for it but to go to Tesco which luckily is only about 10 minutes away but now it was after 3.30. So that took about half an hour altogether and the light's gone!!! But at least I've got a photo and it's here. I think I'm jinxed with cameras and printers.

On Monday after work we nipped down to Perth to see the new grandson. Only takes two hours or so - even allowing for two accidents south of Aberdeen. Then nothing is signposted very well at Perth Royal Infirmary and I misunderstood my son-in-law's directions about where to find the building Catriona was in after getting out of the car park. But we found our way in eventually long after the end of visiting and stayed for about an hour and then headed home. Only took about 6 hours altogether!!!

Enough waffle here is the card. I followed the fabby sketch at Friday Sketchers. I love this sketch, I think there is a lot you could do with it. I've kept it very plain for speed. (Yeah so much for that idea - stupid memory card!)

DP:- MME signature Christmas.
Card Candy and sentiment:- Craftwork Cards.
Snowflake:- Sizzix and glitter card.
Image:- Penny Black.
Colouring:- Watercolour pencils.
Snowflake edged with brushed corduroy Distress Ink and sentiment edged with brushed corduroy and broken china.
