Where have I been??

Hello there! Happy Wednesday!

Soooo...the beady eyed of you might have noticed that the last few of my posts have been sheduled ones...appearing with my cards, but not so much cheeky chatter! I've also not been visiting all your lovely blogs as much as I'd like at the moment. Sorry!! Life has been so very hectic....both at home and at work! I'm hoping in the next week to get a bit more time to myself again! On top of time escaping me I also managed to burn my middle finger on my left hand last weekend while making jam (not successful, but thats another story)...and my finger is currently bandaged up....making it really hard to do a lot of things...including changing gear in my car and typing on a keyboard!!

Last weekend I did something quite special to me....I know a lot of you will think I'm mad...but I completed my first 10k run in over 5 years! It was the London Zoo 10k stampede and my sister Lorna ran it with me (thank goodness!!). We managed it in one hour and five minutes, which considering the problems I've had with my knee over the last couple of years I am very proud of! It was hard work...I nearly threw up when I came over the finish line and all the professional photos look ghastly....but I did it!

Right, enough of that....I have a card for you today....

Look at me....back to my purple roots! I love this sentiment, it makes me laugh!
For this card I've used various purple papers...both patterened and plain. I've coloured my shoe images with my Promarkers and made them sparkle with my Stickles. The sentiment was made on my computer.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - purple passion
The Pink Elephant - monochromatic
Pop by all these fab blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Gorgeous card Wedgie, I love all the purple!

Congratulations on doing your 10K!! That's a great achievement :)

Hope your finger gets better soon, buy an aloe vera plant and smother it up with the gel and it'll be good as new in no time! Sugar burns are proper nasty :/

Hi Wedgie, what a fab card - love the shoes, something a girl can never have too many off!

very brave of you to do the run - I think you'd have to roll me along the course I'm that unfit.

So what went wrong with the jam then? I've been making jam for a couple years myself now and know how unpredictable it can be!!

Hope the finger improves soon.
