Teddy Bo Tuesday

This week's new releases from Teddy Bo have a bit of a Spring Cleaning theme going on, which is exactly what I  need to be doing in my craft room, as it looks like a bomb's gone off in it at the moment.
I've had one of those days, you know the ones - there is something you desperately need, and you're absolutely certain where you put it the last time you used it, but then you go to get it and it's not there. You search high and low, look in all the cupboards and drawers, open up all the boxes and rummage through, pull everything out, spread them on the desk, once that's full you use the floor, and still can't find it.
You have a break for a coffee and a think, suddenly inspiration strikes, you head back up to the craft room, but no, wrong again, it's not there either. In the end you give up, wait until your husband comes in from work and tell him that you can't find it and you've looked everywhere, he says, where did you have it last, you tell him, he asks if you're sure, you reply, definitely, he goes and looks and it's not there, he turns around and looks in the one place you haven't looked, because you know there is absolutely no way you would have even dreamed of putting it there, and whilst he is looking, your adamantly telling him that he is wasting his time as there is no way in the world ever, that you would have put it there - and lo and behold, that's exactly where he finds it!!!
Why do men have the knack of being able to do that, it is so maddening.
Anyway crisis over, but the craft room looks like a herd of elephants have trampled through it. Big clean up today I think!

So onto today's card - this started off being a bit of a clean and simple card, but then I had a brainwave and decided to make some matching embellishments. 

 I made a little feather duster, cut up a J-cloth to make a wash cloth and a sponge to make a..... yes, you've guessed it...sponge LOL! Of course, there had to be a little bit of bling on my feather duster, after all doesn't everyone have a diamond encrusted feather duster?
