This is my card - whats yours?????

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

arty girlz challenge

Well here I am again - today has been a good day - I have had a really good clean up at home - the things I have found underneath my 4 year old daughters' bed you wouldnt believe - she is definitely a hoarder - dont know where she gets that from!!! I even found a Blue Stiki Glue Pen still in its packaging - she just smiles when you ask her about it - and by the way if you are not sure how old she is - you just need to look at her newly altered wallpaper - little madam - in several places has written a lovely set of 4's!! Must take a piccie and scrap it to show her in years to come what a little madam she is now

Anyway once all that was done we went out in the car to collect my Christmas present - one circut expression - one tool kit and 6 cartridges - how fabby is that??? Lee had bought a curry from Morrisons for tonight so no need to wonder what I have been doign this evening. Plaqying with the cricut - eating curry and chatting to Rosie on msn for ages on end - what a giggle we have - especially on the webcam!!

Anyway have managed to do a little card for the arty girlz challenge - here it is

Well I visited Silver Custard blog tonight - thanks Claire - great blog and saw the link through to the challenge blog Poppycrafts http://poppicrafts.blogspot.com/ and wow wow wow wow wow what a website and what a prize they are giving away..so I am doing as I am told and giving it a go - here is my attempt and a no image card in pink white and black - no green sorry but it was said to be optional - quite pleased with how this has turned out.

Haven't done a great deal today as I am stuffed with cold - good job it was this weekend and not when I was on the retreat recently. I have been having a bit of a sort out with my stash instead - and also getting a couple of swaps ready for UKS - dh and the children have been playing on the Wii Fit - I just didnt have the energy to participate this time!

Challenge Time

Here is a card I have made this evening for the Arty Girlz Challenge http://artygirlzchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ - I have made it for a girl in our department - its a full sheet of bazzill folded in half and then white card stuck inside so that there is enough space for everyone to sign

Then over on http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ there is a sketch challenge and here is my attempt - although it hasn't photographed very well
