A challenge card

It's not turning out to be a good week for making cards. I'm feeling a lot better and thought that I would make a few cards yesterday. The gods are against me though. My son and DIL have roped me in to help them with a Christmas fayre at a local church on Saturday. The organizers hadn't anyone to make and sell cards. The lady that used to do it has sadly died. They asked my DIL if she knew of anyone and of course said yes...herself, her partner (my son) and me. Well..seeing as I have some cards made from entering the challenges, and having images stamped/coloured/decoupaged/matted and layered etc..... getting them made up into simple cards would have been easy. Emphatically No!!. First, my printer which is quite old now, is on a go slow..I need it to print out some backing papers and the inserts..and Theo. Every time I get out my crafting stuff he starts. He wants to play with everything...glue stick, craft knife, scissors, DST, papers, get the picture? Well it meant that yesterday I got the grand total of 3 cards made...and I still have inserts to make as well.

Here is one of them that fits one of the challenges. Rainbow Lady's Challenge #40 which asks for snowmen. Suffice to say that I'm not doing very well at getting any more challenge cards done this week

The image and sentiment is from La Pashe..the backing paper downloaded from Funky Fairy.

My signature seems to be coming and going as well.....definitely got the gremlins in this week.
