Challenges Met and Deadlines Missed

Don't you just hate it when you miss challenge deadlines?  
Well unbelievably I've done that twice this week - on Monday with the vintage car for Polka Doodles, (see earlier post), and yesterday with this card which was supposed to be for Moving Along With The Times Sketch Challenge. but unfortunately it closed at 8pm last night - poop!  
Since I had been lucky enough to win the prize the previous week I really wanted to join in again - besides which, it was my pal Hazel's sketch and it would've been nice to show my support for her too.   In my defence our internet has been down so I wasn't actually able to go online until later this morning ... but even so ... GRRRRRRR!   S'annoying 'innit?
AND
As if that wasn't bad enough ... I also missed out on winning some cute stamps Blog Candy at Tasha's blog ... so double poop!!
Will need to make sure I'm organised for the new challenge tomorrow over at Bah! Humbug! or I'll be in the naughty corner.  GULP

On a more positive note I have managed the deadline for Simon Says Challenge this week which asks for Pink or Blue with Green and Brown with the option of Penny Black images.   As you see I played safe by using them all.  The pretty floral paper is by K.& Co. and the cute image is Penny Black - Cupful of Love.
Promarkers were used for colouring in and as Passion For Promarkers have Anything Goes as their theme this week to celebrate their 1st birthday I can submit it as my entry.  You absolutely DON'T want to see what prizes they have on offer.  SERIOUSLY I'm begging you not to go! -  'cos then you'll want to play too and that'll reduce my chances of winning considerably LOL!
Because I've entered at Simon Says Stamp, I can also play along at Lorraine's Loft where she has an adorable Happy Hopper stamp up for grabs ... my finger's are well crossed for that one too. 
 

So at least I'm ending on a happier note than I started and that's gotta' be good.

Great cards and pity about the missed deadlines but we all do it when pressure gets the better of us. Look forward to BH tomorrow.
