Another Stampin' Up! Build a Blossom Card

Another week over with as far as work is concerned and now onto a lovely weekend with lots of crafting this weekend for me, I can't wait to get my hands on some of my new stash from Stampin' Up! in particular the Petal Cone die, Candy Wrapper die well to be honest anything using the Big Shot, I don't know what I did without this machine.

Before I get onto the card a couple of things I wanted to mention was the font change on my blog; blogger now lets you choose from loads of fonts but I decided I didn't like the one I left on here for a few days and have changed it again, what do you think? is this one easy to read?

Another thing to tell is a bit of a funny story, if you want to skip this then scroll to the card........
well the other day dh nearly made me die from laughing ... well at first a bit of a fright...... anyway when we moved into this house 5 ish years ago and started renovating the old place (about 300 years old) you can imagine ... floors coming up walls and ceilings coming down all the floor upstairs gone! well we disturbed a nest of MICE! omg they were everywhere dh was bonking them all on the head with a dustpan and collecting them with the brush and giving them a nice burial in the garden....... sorry but I can't bear the thought of them running around the house so they had to get bonked on the hear.....cruel you might say, sorry sorry sorry....
anyway he shouts to me " Peg, there is a mouse on the stairs" WHAT! I ran from the craft room onto the landing and peeped over the Bannister's................. he had put new batteries in my mouse for my computer!!! it was just the mouse for my computer........... It was sitting on the stairs and dh was singing " I saw a mouse, where? there on the stair right there, a little mouse with clogs on, well I declare going clip clippity clop on the stair.... Oh yeah"

Funny for me anyway......

Here is the card!
Another air balloon one using the Blossom Builder punch, the kitten cat, is from All in the Family stamp set and the basket is a piece of crumb cake card run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder and the sentiment is from Happiest Birthday wishes-hostess set.

that's if for today but come back tomorrow to see a birthday card I made for my sister Karen who has a birthday tomorrow.....

.............Until tomorrow .............. be crafty ...........
