Warning, super cuteness alert!!

Morning All!

And how is everyone on this happy Saturday?  It's looking like a lovely day out there today, hope the sun is shining wherever you are too?  Ooooo, I may even get a few cheeky rays in!! Well I think I deserve a little rest after the week I've had, lol!  You would think that not working you'd have loads of time to craft the day away but no chance let me tell you, this job hunting malarky is sooooo time consuming!!  There I was yesterday morning planning what cards I was going to make (chasing my tail as usual!) when I get a phone call about a job I'd applied for asking if I was free in the afternoon for a telephone interview.  Not that I'm complaining, I'd much rather be busy with interviews than not!!  But I've not had an interview for about 10 years so that was the card making out the window as I then spent about 3 hours getting prepared for it.....and it lasted about 20 mins, lol!!  I have no idea how I got on, I was myself and if they don't want me then hey ho.  I'm not going to pretend I'm really ambitious and want to be the CEO in six months time as that's just not me, but I am hard working so if they're after someone who's happy, bubbly, ditsy but will get the job done then I'm their gal!  But we'll watch this space ay...  Not that I told them this but I work because I haven't won the lottery yet, isn't that what we all do??  I guess there are some people out there who want to be the big boss.....but in my opinion they just haven't found crafting to fill their time yet, lol!!

Ok, mega long chat over (hope you're still with me, lol!) and onto my card.  This is my Sketch Saturday DT card, fab sketch from my teamie Bente who's hosting this week.  I thought it would work perfectly for my nephew's birthday card, what do you think?...



Close up of LOTV's 'Little Lorry Bear', told you there was a super cuteness alert!!...

And a side view...



As I said earlier, this is my Sketch Saturday DT card and here's this week's sketch...



Loved it Bente, thank you!  This week we have a new sponsor...



Papilio Stamps who are a small Norwegian company where the owner, Malin, designs the most gorgeous images in both rubber and digital and she ships internationally!  :o))  The prize this week is four digital stamps, good huh!  Hope you can play along too?...

Right, I'm going to get moving and crack on.  I'm a bit of a Bond fan and ITV at the moment are showing a film each Saturday afternoon (I have them all on DVD but can't miss them if they're on the TV, go figure?!).  So I've been spending my Saturday afternoon's in my craft room watching a bit of Bond, LOVE IT!!  :o))  Sad I know, lol!!

Much love,
