Lazy Days

Hello Everyone, 
What a morning!! As you know I usually get a couple of hours to craft on a Saturday morning. The kids tend to play nice and quiet, glad not to be at school! But today they've been trying to kill each other, and have driven me completely potty in the process!!
I've used a rubber stamp called 'Lazy Days' for today's card and coloured him with my promarkers. The background papers are a mix of Brenda Pinnick and Craft Creations.  I've used spellbinders edgeability dies for the borders and added some ribbon from my stash.
Well, the metal was a bit of a problem. I had a set of 'metal accessories' by Papermania (they were suede flowers) but the colours didn't go. So I took the metal centre of the flowers apart and added them to my own die cuts!! I also added a little metal dragonfly that I found in the bottom of my drawer!
Well, hubby is on nights so in bed trying to sleep, the sky is full of black clouds and it keeps raining and the kids are driving me nuts!! Now I really need to get some housework done, and school uniforms washed and ironed!! 


I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Hot Metal
J & C Creations - Animal Antics
Charizma Cardz - Anything Goes
Crafty Creations - 3 Different Embellishments


Thanks for taking the time to stop by today and for all your comments. I'll be round to visit you later if the kids haven't finished me off!!
