I've been trying to get to the Challenge for this week over at Daring Cardmakers. It was quite simple - fairies. Well if you read yesterday's post, forgive me for being repeptitive, but I have no fairies. And no imagination to do anything about it! But I do enjoy the challenges over there, they stretch me a little and I thought this week I would make something because frankly, I should have time. (I have got time, for heaven's sake, I can turn getting showered and dressed into a full time job!). Anyway, here I am at 8:41 am. I'm off to do a bit of workshop conducting this morning, so had the alarm set for about half an hour after Mr Dunnit soundlessly leaves the bed, the bathroom, the house. I do not know how he does it. But it means I am always on the look out for a packed suitcase the night before - he could leave me and I wouldn't hear! Anyway, there I was in semi-conscious mode, mulling over the day to come. The realisation that it's the last day for the fairy challenge didn't quite get me out of bed, because the card on the left has been finished for a couple days. The fairy on the right, from my mega kit by the Crafthouse Press did it. I came very close to leaping out of bed so that I could rush downstairs and make a card that fit the challenge criteria! Now I don't really do leaping, let alone rushing. Blimey. And you'll probably be unsurprised to know that Mr Dunnit heard me coming down the stairs because I can't do it silently - and actually came to the foot of the stairs to check he'd heard right. You'll also be sympathetic to the fact that when he 'd finished acting out a ridiculous double take and staggering around the hall pretending to be in shock, I chose NOT to tell him what had motivated my early rising. Huh.
I've had a cup of much needed coffee, some toast, made a card, photographed it, blogged and unloaded the dishwasher. Gosh, perhaps today is going to be a 'doing day'.
