Lazy Afternoon

Sooooo, I had a very productive morning today.  In a bid to avoid doing any uni work, I made loads of cards.   I finally got bored at 16!!!  I don't think I have ever made 16 cards in one sitting before (well, actually two sittings, as I decided to go back to bed for a bit half way through), but the card box at work is looking extremely empty and drastic action was required, so I had set aside to day for creativity.  I just didn't expect to be so creative.

I don't know if I will ever get round to blogging all 16 of the things, but I will blog some of them (until my hands no longer want to type anyway, or the urge to actually finish off writing my assignment - 2000 words on the impact of the emergence of sophist thinking on the reception of Greek mythology anyone?!)  

So first up is actually the first card I made, and is aptly named as, following my busy morning, I spent a good hour this afternoon asleep on the sofa, which is what the hubby is doing now.  For some reason though the football still seems  to be on the telly - everything I try to change channel he wakes up and claims to not be asleep but 'listening to it'.  I don't know how he can listen over the volume of snoring coming from him, but maybe you don't hear your own snores?!

Anyway, I made this card using an LOTV vintage boys art pad image and a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

The giant gingham checky things paper is from an old Dovecraft paper pack and I simply needed to add some blue satin ribbon from my stash and some hole-punched from a scrap of blue card circles in the top right hand corner - voila! one quick card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
