12,000 hits and a bit of Crafting

Goodness I have been busy this week. We have been re-decorating the downstairs of our home and the Hall Stairs and landing. Everything has been upside down for about 5 weeks, we haven't watched ANY television during this time which has been quite amazing. I have been so much more productive. We are on the final stretch, carpets are starting to be fitted next weekend and it's looking really nice.

I've not had very much time for crafting this week so it was lovely to be able to unwind and make a few cards last night. One card I cannot show until tomorrow. I've got something REALLY exciting happening, but it's a secret and I can't say anything until tomorrow.

My blog has just hit 12,000 on it's counter. How on earth did that happen so quickly ? I know some of it will be me posting etc, but that has risen so quickly. I can only guess it is people visiting my blog because I have posted cards on sketch challenges.

This card was made using the Mojo 74 sketch and I wanted to use some embossed acetate to fit in with the challenge over on the Cuttlebug blog.

The pink square started it off, this was from a DCWV pad which is colorblocked and I loved the swirls in the paper. I used a square or acetate and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Divine Swirls folder. The other papers and 'ribbon' are Papermania Sweet Nothings, I do love that spotty paper. It looks fab when you ink the edges.

The butterflies are glittered chipboard shapes from DCWV and I added a small bow and some wire antenna from my stash.
