Finally! I am back!

Only two, almost three days late compared to what I wrote Friday morning. We got hit! Yepp, we got hit of the tummy flue. Well the kids did especially the youngers one. There is some crazy thing that goes on out there. This should be some kind of special tummy flue for the young kids, almost only two year old gets it. Guess how old my youngerst is? Right two. Thank you flue God! Just what we needed and I really love to do laundry. Baaah. Well it was short and "sweet" and it seems to be over now and now we just have to recharge our batteries to start off the new week a little later on today.

The card that has been put on hold is this blue and silver creation. (Please tell me why my cards always loses colours when they go and visit Mr Blogger? What am I doing wrong?)The reason for this colour choise is the "Totally Tilda Challenge Blog" where the theme is "Blue and Silver", then we have the "I love Promarker challenge" were the theme is "Icy Colours". To top it of the "Die Cut Dream X-mas Challenge" has "Snow flakes" as their theme. The sketch is from "Paper Take Weekly". Image is of course from Magnolia and the designer papers are from Bearly Mine Design, the new Christmas digi set called Christmas Dreams is used for this card together with a plain blue one and some scraps from one of the other sets. Yummi papers! There is a sale going on at Bearly Mine Design with 15% off and Donna herself has a wonderful blog candy up at her blog. So pop on over to have a look for yourself.
With that mixture of challenges going on I end up with this. Once again I have gotten some help from my oldest son (four years old). This time he was intrested in the distressing part with the inky things from T.H. It got a tiny bit too much but and we still have it on our hands as well. Kind of looks a bit taned. Kind of nice in this rainy weather. Anyway, it was fun and we would probably be at it still if he was allowed to. A little promise of him being able to try it again another day and a got play with the vacum cleaner got him of the ink pads. He still loves to help cleaning and this time it was something that really needed to be done. He had fun and I got to take care of my stuff. Mean mother, ain't I? Letting the kids play with the VC to get some cleaning done.
So something seems to be going on with Mr Blogger as well tonight as it now is huge trouble to save what you do in here. Hope this will be solved soon. Take care and enjoy your new week.


Ps: Monday morning and I am finally able to put this up. Thank you for that Mr Blogger!
