Long time no see plus it's TLT!!! YAY!!

Morning! I can't believe I've been without the magical landline/broadband for almost a month now, to say I'm so sick of it is so two weeks ago, I've just about had enough and as I write this, BT STILL haven't turned up to start sorting this mess out!!! VERY FUSTRATED!
I've missed my Lovely Ladybug friends sooooooooo much!!! So much has happened in the weeks I've been away including the retail show, Grace being poorly, a humongous stock take and trying to sort out the chaos my house is in following the show - the last isn't quite done yet! I've had lots of stock deliveries the last couple of weeks too so it's been very very busy, all hindered by the fact I run an online busy and my phone number is printed with adverts, stationery etc etc etc...

Anyway, onto much much much happier things and it's time for TLT, boy have I missed TLT and crafting in general, I've not had time to do any crafting for weeks!!! I was worried I'd have lost my mojo and then I couldn't find my acrylic block anyway (it was "somewhere" in the chaos, of course I knew exactly where I'd put it... it was somewhere!!) I found a stamped images of Robyn and stupidly coloured her and then decided to run her through my Grand Calibur after I coloured her and yes... she met a horrid grim mess when I tried to emboss her - grrrr! So I hunted for my block and found that, exactly where I knew it would be... somewhere! I stamped up Robyn again and managed to get a card made in an HOUR!!! Go me, go me!!!

This week's challenge was set by Gaelle and she decided on the theme - Monochrome! I love green (and pink - they're joint favourite colours!) and I'd already "chosen" Wellies Robyn - she's so irresistable, if I got a Birthday card every year with her on, I wouldn't be disappointed, I love her so much!! :-D

So without further ado, (I'm sure you're all exhausted after reading the "essay" above!) here is my card...

YAY!!! It worked!!! (PHEW!!)

Be sure to take a look at the other Ladybugs beautiful projects HERE and I'm sure they'd love some comments too!!

That's it from me, 10:30 and still no BT... I don't think I'll hold my breath, I might be holding it for too long!!

Have a great day and hopefully I'll be back again soon
