A 'me' day.

At last! A day to sit at my cluttered desk and clutter it up a bit more with a new card. I was planning on making a New Years resolution this year to tidy up after each card - thank goodness I didn't put that in writing! I said "I WAS planning ...".
A friend of mine made a resolution last year to 'eat chocolate every day'. Now that is what I call an achievable resolution.
School holidays keep me pretty busy with who needs to go where and when and who needs to be picked up from where and when. So, today was a 'me' day. I lost myself in my copic markers and patterned papers and came up with this card to enter into the following challenges.

This week Lili of the Valley are having a "Things with Wings" challenge #80.
LOTV are also sponsoring the Paper Sundaes challenge of "Circles" #51.
Cupcake Craft have asked us to use "Something New" #124. 
(That wasn't hard seeing that I haven't had a chance to get to my recent stamp purchases yet)
Stamp Something gave us an "Anything Goes" option.

I also did two loads of washing, some ironing and made the beds. I think that I need a review of that "me" contract. LOL.
I am thrilled to pieces when I receive each and every one of your lovely comments. A new follower means that I am able to see more amazing creations and I'm truly inspired by you all. 
Thank you for visiting me.
