Summer Holiday = Crafting Blues

Holy Moly, I didn't realise that Sam being on his summer holiday was going to impact on my crafting quite so much LOL!!! It's hard to get started what with being 'summoned' every five minutes and then cos it's the hols, I'm quite relaxed about bed time, so I don't seem to be getting started til 11pm - and now my insomnia has reverted to narcolepsy, I'm nodding off before I get the chance to get started. Are any other mothers out there feelin' the pain?!?
Anyway, enough of the moaning! The current challenge over at Shopping Our Stash is Buttons, Blooms and Bananas (or any kinda fruit really, as you'll be able to tell from my card!) - and you've still got a couple of days to enter. Here's my card:

Image - Magnolia coloured with prismacolour pencils blended with sansodor.
Papers - Magnolia.
Sentiment stamp - Magnolia.
Cardstock - Papermania (red).
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Buttons - QVC.
Ribbon - from stash.

I'm also going to enter this card into the following challenges:

OK my lovelies, that's it from me for now. I promise I'll be round later to catch up with you all. It was my Dad's birthday yesterday, and we're off out for Sunday lunch so I'd better go and get ready. TTFN.........x
