Good Morning

Feeling a lot happier this morning.......had one heck of a day yesterday trying to find car insurance for the lads trip to Mongolia. I made a point of telling Gary's insurance company in February when we put the car on the road what it was to be used for and was told that was fine......yesterday I was told Gary wouldn't be covered under the policy to do the trip!! Grrrr.......anyway many phone calls and much internet searching later we finally got two of them covered to drive...at a price, but it's worth it for the piece of mind.

So no time for crafting yesterday.......think the door is going to be shut for the holidays now while I get the house sorted, laundry and packing done and the numerous other things that still need doing before we go!

I'm sharing a card today that I made for a recent Joanna Sheen competition which I haven't shown yet.

The competition was for a spring card using an image from the Jayne Netley Mayhew 2 CD set. Backing paper was from Daisy and Friends CD (I think), PATP from Martha Stewart, corner dies from Spellbinders. Ribbon, lace, button, stick pins, mirri card and pearls from my stash.

I didn't win any prizes for it but was very pleased with how it turned out.
As this was a competition card I'm not entering it into any challenges today.
