Going Green for TBT - Monday 23rd February 2015

Hello Friends!

I hope you all had a good weekend...we had a rare weekend when we didn't have many places to go..Tom's parents were working, which is very unusual for a weekend, so we didn't have them to visit, which meant a free Sunday. Well I had some craft time scheduled and guess what? I came down with a coup, cold and bad throat - honestly just got over one bug and now a cold! I never usually get anything either!

I did manage a few hours crafting yesterday and got some Nicecrane DT projects finished, so I guess it wasn't a total waste of a Sunday and the weather outside was appalling!

This month's Throwback Thursday Challenge(TBT) over at Stamping with Bibiana is to share an already posted project/card with green in it or a St Patrick's Day card, so I hunted back through my blog and found this one from 2012!

The original post can be found here: 

I remember making this card because it was fun, all the circles are attached with brads and spin around. I won that month's House Mouse Challenge with it and I remember intending to hold on to it, but rather oddly took it to a craft fair. I did put a higher than normal price on it, but it got sold as soon as the fair opened and I was disappointed, how daft is that!

That's it from me for today, if you would like to enter Bibiana's Challenge, which I was so thrilled to win last month, click the link below:

  4. Carole, These little mice seem to be having a ball rolling down the hill in that wreath. All of you circles are so nice and how wonderful that they turned.
