2 Versions Of a Sketch & I'm Tagged!

These two cards are both made using the wonderful card sketch from Di Hickman.
I was very brave & used orange as these Amethyst papers are so gorgeous!!!
I have done layered stamping again & dual coloured stamping. Am loving these techniques.

Now for the tag! I have been tagged by Ronda.
so these are the rules...
Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to blog about their seven things and post the rules as well . At the end of your blog, you need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them that they have been tagged and to read your blog!OK, here goes...

1) I am far too organised!! I have to have lists everywhere & I get incredible satisfaction crossing things off as I go!
2) I take immense pleasure out of laying on my sofa or in bed listening to the rain fall. I feel so safe & warm inside while the elements rage.
3) While I am organised, I can be terribly untidy. Don't get me wrong, nothing is out of place in my home, I just have a lazy habit of walking in & dumping things down intending to move them later but then get too busy doing other stuff.Then I have to blitz the area of said dumping ground because it drives me mad. I guess after years of being a cleaner this is my way of rebelling!!
4) I worry far too much about wasting time. I can never sit & watch television. I have to be crafting or flicking through ideas mags or on the computer!!! Time is precious every minute has to be used fully & wisely.
5)I miss my old life. Really miss it. I know things change & move on, but I miss the old things like places, jobs & people. I miss working in the Commercial Glasshouse most. I miss that tomato smell & being green all the time!!!
6)I have begun to love who I am!!!
7) I strive to be happy despite all the crap life has thrown at me. I think I am getting there slow but sure.

I now tag, Gillian, Kathy, Micayla, Dawn, Pearl, Megan & Beckie.

Apologies for the long post it kind of had to happen, hope you haven't dropped off with boredom!!!
