I just love this sentiment - In such a rush and bustle life we all live; time just seems to fly on by - so when you have some breathing space it's nice to notice the things that bring you joy... at this time for me it is my family - they are so precious and I'm so glad they are in my life.  I made this card for challenge #244 at Shopping Our Stash - use clocks.  Inked up the raised surface on an embossing folder in Distress Ink Stormy Sky, then inked the raised surface of the card in DI Antique Linen - to create the background. Thanks for taking a peek

SOS #244 - Cuckoo For You - Use Clocks

EDITED 1 April 2016
Today I am posting to Darnells bloghop....April Fool's Day Boo Boo Hop  - post one of your oopsie-boopsies - where we're to share a card with a mistake, or something funny that happened in the making - can you see my mistake ... the clocks in the embossed background - they're back to front.  I inked one side of the embossing folder with green and I didn't like how bright it was so I quickly inked the other side with blue and the result is that its all about face. I liked the effect and didn't realise till later the oopsie.   Thanks for taking a peek

Cup of Cheer

A bright cheery Spring card for the latest Coffee Lovers Bloghop - Spring Edition.
I am so out of the swing of things with my card making lately ... just a few other things going on in our lives at the present ... but it was nice to find some time to make a card for this 'hop' - appropriate maybe as it is Easter.  I used my Brushos on these stamped images - I think it says it all simply ... just need to find a quiet spot to enjoy a cuppa.  Have a lovely Easter and thanks for stopping by

Friday Smiles

Share a smile...Good morning Friday Smiles visitors.... from damp Townsville, Australia.
This is a photo heavy post (you can click on the pics for a larger view)
My first photo I couldn't resist... sunrise this morning - clouds with a promise of more rain. We're in drought here so this past week of rain is wonderful although the back your is very soggy and work on the build slowed considerably, tarps have been pulled over the extension to the right side of the house....

 A view of the back extension shows a completed two room structure ready for the plasterers on Monday, and our extended deck roof - see the shorter one still underneath that will be cut away.
 A couple of street views..

 And part of the building mess under our carport.... as you can see ladders and scaffolding everywhere
I was away last week on a sudden visit south to see my mum and very sick brother
So this gorgeous rose in mums garden certainly has me smiling
 Me and mum
Thanks for stopping by and if you have some happiness to share, please pop over to Annies blog and join in ..... have a wonderful week, Cheers
