Where is time going???

I can't believe how fast time is just passing by... I have so much to get done ready for the workmen to come in and modernise this house that I just haven't time for myself or crafting at the moment... and tbh it's all stressing me out... I have so needed some 'Me' time!

HisLordShip took me out for a ride on the Motorcycle on Wednessday... we ended up at Skipton and Omg, some absolutely lovely views as well as slopey curvey roads... I enjoyed every minute of it! Of course seeing as we were over there I just had to pop into Samuel Taylors and have a nosey, very different to the Leeds ST. I was treated to a few bits whilst there... a cuttlebug embossing folder, Forever Friends Decoupage and some Whispers Blender Pens... they didn't have the Low-Tac tape i'd originally set out of the house for!

We had a walk around Skipton Market and bought some of the old fashioned sweeties... then set off home... or so I thought.... a lovely ride back into Leeds and a pit stop at the Leeds Samuel Taylors where I found my Low-Tac Tape... and was treated even more... I got the Big One paper stack by Clare Curd, Papermania Doodles Stamps again by Clare Curd (I think... lose track of who makes what as they are all yummy) and the new Creative Cardmaking magazine!

And then there was no cooking either as HisLordShip bought Take-Out... talk about being spoilt... hehe :)

Of course I've not had time to use my new goodies yet... but as soon as I can get this house in order I will be playing to my hearts content!

This Morning my Dandelion & Daisy Birthday Collection... exclusive to The Glitter Pot... arrived and to say I only ordered them yesterday evening I was amazed they arrived so quickly... so would highly recommend 'The Glitter Pot' to anyone :)

I have my eye on the New range of Dandelion and Daisy stamps that are due out on 1st May... the Masculine Collection... and with Fathers Day coming up will definitely come in handy for the men in our lives!

I was really upset to have missed the 'Stamp With Us' challenge last week... but just did not have time to play at all... so today I have sat down and made a card for this weeks challenge before the new challenge comes out tomorrow... talk about last minute! I had an idea and using the Dandelion & Daisy Sketch from their last weeks challenge (another missed challenge :( ) I made my card using some Chocolate Stampin' Up Papers and using the Choclolate Cardstock the lovely Monica sent with one of my parcels for a challenge again I missed doing I have come up with this lovely little card...

And of course the card had to have one of the cute little Dandelion & Daisy images... I just love these little guys at the moment... but as soon as house is sorted I can play with my lovely Stampin' Up Stamps :) (Excuse the windows... they will be going soon and lovely new Double Glazing will be going in... can't wait)

Well... best get back to sorting the shed... tidying and throwing... then into the house again to continue the cleansing process in here... feels like it's never ending but I know it will all be worth it in the end!

Catch you all soon :)
