Penny Black Saturday Challenge 27

Aaarrrggghhh!!!!! I have had such a frustrating day!!!! First of all, there was no water when I got up to have a shower, so I picked up the phone to call Thames Water...and there was no dial tone!!!!! So I called Thames Water, on my mobile, to hear a recorded message telling me that they were 'aware of the fault in my postcode area, and had their engineers working to fix it, and would update the message when they knew more', so then I called 'Talk Talk' to hear another recorded message telling me that they were 'aware of the fault in my postcode area, and had their engineers working to fix it, and aimed to have it repaired in 4 hour'. Aaarrrggghhh!!!
So, as I couldn't wash, or use the internet, I had to craft! Obviously, I couldn't do any of the sketch challenges, as I couldn't go and look at the sketches, but I did remember that the theme for this week's Penny Black Challenge was a 'recipe' - 3 flowers, 2 papers, 1 ribbon. I decided to go 'non-Christmassy' as I've finished all my Christmas cards, and have used 'Rainin' Daisies' as my main image. The papers are by Sandylion, and the flowers are from Poppicrafts.

The water finally came back on at 2pm....2pm!!!!!! But before it did, I'd managed to finish off some beaded gifts for some special crafting buddies (I'll upload the photo when they've received them, as I don't want to spoil the surprise), and make some more bits for my other calendars...but I've still got more to do...and I need to write my Christmas cards too!!!!
Now I have my internet connection back, I might just have to do a little blog-hopping first...
