Terrible Tuesday!

Okay, so it's only half past nine in the morning (as I type this but it'll probably be midnight by the time it's posted!) and you would not believe what's gone wrong so far! I spilt thousands of tiny gems and buttons all over the floor! Trod on a tube of glue! I put my Crunchy Nut Cornflakes down and Frog the Cat licked them up and then found a slug in the bath! A spider I can understand, but a slug!??? And there it was, with it's little wiggling eyes on stilts waving at me, (That'll be it's antenna Lyn) enjoying my shower gel, because of course I didn't spot it until I was actually in the shower with shampoo in my hair!! A peeping Tom Slug!! Aggrh! (Or rather, "EEK!") I quickly flicked it off the shower curtain and into the sink. In seconds it had disappeared down the plug hole! Bit of trivia...slugs can squeeze through anything if they want to. Screw a piece of wood to the floor and a slug will still be able to slide underneath it! I've seen one do justthat! No, I didn't put salt down the drain... the thought of a slimy dead slug stuck in the U bend put me off! (And I'd probably have nightmares of being chased by a giant slimy slug!)
Camera once again is only taking pictures of ghosts, so I had to result to the 'free in a posh cracker' camera to take these pictures. I loved this sketch as soon as I saw it. I thought I'd have to use the images the DT on The Crafty Pad was using on their cards, which I didn't have, but then Maxine told me 'No, anything goes!' (But not slugs!) So I made this card over the weekend using The Bubble and Squeak papers from Docrafts, and a sized down Tilda (put her through the scanner, she didn't mind) and coloured her using both ProMaker pens (her jeans) and Copic pens (her face, hands, headscarf, socks) Then sprinkled on some micro-glitter. Of course it's too late for last weeks Challenge (as I couldn't take a picture) but there's another Sketch going on this week that looks just as yummy. Slug permitting, this card will be winging its way to Middlesex, all be it, very very late, sorry!
The font inside the card, (hope you can see it, not a very good picture) is of course a freebie. It's called 'A Yummy Apology' (which is very apt when you think about it) and can be downloaded HERE and here
Big ((Wave))) and welcome to three new Followers!!! (Are you sure you've picked the right site? There's another one called Spiderscorner and they sell really nice cars and bikes and surf boards too I think.) Welcome to Trouble who I've 'met' over on Trim Craft Forum. Pop over to Jane's blog, 'Dingus Designs' and have a look at her fabulous paper lace parchment book marker, it's really pretty. Welcome too, to Tami, no link to a blog at the moment for Tami...so I'll be back to fill one in later...(I'll go on a Google Hunt!) No need! Found your email Tami. Tami and I are buddies over on Card Making-World, and she has some lovely cards in the members area. There's a link to the site on my sidebar. Tami has an amazing (TIDY!) craft room! (I'm really jealous!)
Hi ((wave)) a

Look in older posts too, there's some lovely makes there!! Right! Back later to corect all the smelling misstakes and put in more links...time for a frothy coffee and a chocolate bisqwit!!

  5. Ewwww... gross. I would freak out if I found a slug in my place! lol. I do see the occasional GIGANTIC cockroach here though, which is all new to me because I'm from up north where roaches are few and far between, down here in the south though, they are everywhere... even in the grass and I will not go outside at night because of it... lol

  6. Agh! We have the same problem with snails in our garden...at night coming back from my shed (when it was my craft room) I would hear the odd crunch crunch crunch..as I trod on them! (((shiver))))

  7. Love your blog Spyder and hope your day improves! Will be following from now on.
