Always look on the bright side of life

What a mixed up week its been, my Aunt arrived on Sunday from Germany and we are so looking forward to her spending a month with us. The weather in Sydney has been pretty bad but its slowly clearing up. Daylight saving has started which means we have one hour extra of light and also its the first sign that summer is around the corner, I just can't wait for warm and balmy days.

Did any of you watch the Opening Ceremony for the Commonwealth games ?, let me just say that it was just amazing, I really have never seen anything like it before. Although I was exhausted I stayed up till 4am to watch it and I am so glad that I did. I think all the sceptics are going to be proved wrong and its going to be a great Commonwealth Games, I hope I get to watch some of the events.

Anyway, it was another tough day at work but I am not going to work hard to stay positive about work. Its only part of my life and I really shouldn't let it bother me as much as it sometimes does. After a difficult day I am glad that I got to make this card following the sketch over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. I love the sketches that they come up with every week and its been fun playing along for the last few weeks. I also enjoyed using my new embellishments on this card. I love how the flowers have faces and the oversized butterfly is so funky.

Before I sign off I just want to thank all the lovely people who  have become followers on my blog over the last few weeks, I love having you around and also want to wish you all the best of luck in my giveway. Thanks for joining in on the fun.

This post has been a bit all over the place but I am sure all of my regular visitors  have now figured out that I jump from one thing to another.
