ABC Challenge Wallet and Eisbarin's candy challenge

Sketch is provided by the very talented Alex if you havent seen her work get over there now she is amazing. You have to make her laugh with a joke or make a card with her sketch. Rubbish at jokes so have made this. Kay on docrafts is hosting the ABC challenge W for wallet so have combined both.
Image is Miss Anya and papers are CCS Big Book. Flowers are silk and paper mulberry.

Not a Happy Day

Well went to deliver the belated card which she liked and just before i got home i had a car accident. I am ok thank god but got to sort car today so no craftying and needed what money i had for the craft event tomorrow.
Sat waiting to turn right into my road conditions dark and raining sat under a street light and cars coming towards me so couldnt turn when a hugh almighty bang. Turned round to look and a young lad aged 16 fellow off his bike. he had hitthe back of my car . He got up but was shaken and banged his hip and ellbow. So have to sort this. He lived over a mile away and couldnt push his bike so it is sat on my drive and i took him home. Poor lad. So today i have to see if someone can give me a quote on the damage hope it isnt much.
Bye for now
Lad has picked his bike up and estimate of £350 so not too bad lads dad not happy still waiting to see if he wants me to go through insurance or if they want to do it private. Dad said the lad has to sell his bike poor thing. I think. Looks like i will end up £250 down on my excess why do it always happen when there is a craft show in town. lol

1 card 2 challenges

The challenge over at creative inspiration is embossing so have joined the challenge with the Truly Scrumptious challenge with their great sketch and the theme of spots, circles and dots. The image is a new one from polly craft designs i bought this week. Love it. Flowers are a small punch and leaves are hand cut. The embossing folder is a cuttlebug and i have used a versamark pad and then brushed various colours of cosmic shimmer over which doesnt show up on the picture.
