Life has been crazy!

Where does the time go?  Life has been going so fast I just don't seem to be able to keep up with myself at the moment.
This Monday saw me at home as I had both kids at home sick and Tuesday is my day off work (my real job lol) and to be honest i was running both days.  Nigel made me write a list of all the things I needed to get done, and I am happy to say that I only have 3 things left on the list - not to bad really!
I did however get to have a little play (this was on my list - a girls gotta have some time out) and this is what I made:

I saw a tutorial for this Rolo holder on this blog and decided that I really needed to try to make it, just don't tell anyone that I brought 3 packets of Rolo's and only one made it to a card!  Man I haven't had those in years!
I also saw on a blog somewhere that you use the distress ink to go around the edge of your oval or card and then use holographic embossing powder around the edge I think you can see the effect in these photos, I was really pleased how they worked out.
I used the new Tim Holtz Paper Pad - I really don't like cutting into it I love it so much! (we currently have all three of Tim Holtz double sided paper pads 12x12 inches in stock - just e-mail me if you are interested)
Righto Thats all I am going to leave you with for today - Only 3 more sleeps until Crop for a Cause 2010, and only 3 tickets left!
Well that's about it for me - off to Basketball practice although i would rather snuggle up inside!

Take care - stay warm

I love rolos, might just have to try out your 'one for three ' card myself! Your card is super cute!
Life seems to be crazy here as well, must be something in the air!
