Challenge Catch-up

After my busy cropping weekend I have a few challenges to catch-up on.

Sad (Monday's)
This week we are going to focus on emotions. We prompt you with one word and you translate it the best you can through your lens. Try hard as you can not to use a human face to reflect that emotion. For instance - Sad. A dying plant, a messy corner, mucky windows (we all have them at one point!)

Smo had a good idea for this one but it meant nipping out this morning and I desperately want to wait in for my parcels. (I know they don't come if you wait in, but if you go out a beacon goes off on your roof and delivery vans flock to your door). So instead here is a picture of my sad, poorly bathroom sink.
Excited (today's prompt)
One of the most happiest of emotions. Whats exciting through your lens?

I did have some chocolate but I've eaten it and empty choc wrappers aren't that exciting, are they? Also the fan heater for my kitchen has arrived and I am sat here typing and getting toasty. Although it does say to give 1.5m clearance on all sides - how big do they think my kitchen is? That's left me with my third exciting thing of today.
Yep, she's making a list, she's checking it twice, Hobbycraft is coming to town! Well it's not actually I'm going to Hobbycraft but you get the idea. My list is very long, but I'm determined to try to get things I've been wanting for ages and avert my eyes from the bargain bins.

DCM from Friday next.
and CUT! Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere.
Cut the card by hand using a WS template and finished with Autumn Leaves stamps, sticky jewels and a tiny prima.

I think that's me just about caught up now.

And I thought it was just my home that had an alarm to tell all delivery men I had left the building and they could rush round to shove 'sorry we missed you cards' through the letterbox! Great shots and I love that card - the stamping is really pretty. x

my delivery man can't read or doesn't understand 'leave the parcel with next door, I am on the school run'. He always takes them to the depot...gggrrrrrrr!!!
