Grey Tie.......

Hello me lovelies and Happy Saturday!

Yuck is how I will describe the weather here in Kent today, perfect though for hiding in the craft room! I got the tunes turned right up, a cuppa and some choc-o-lit too, perfect! So I spiced things up a little bit last night, NO not like that ( what were you thinking LOL) with my effort at the fab SC image Grey Tie.  I have teamed this little minx up with shades of purple and , black lace and a bit of sparkle!  I didn't have any ribbon that was the right shade so I ripped up a bit of Beth's lining material,  (don't tell).

My First Christmas Card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hope you are enjoying your weekend, it was a miserable day here in Kent yesterday and I am feeling quite yucky so I spent most of it snoozing on the sofa and generally not doing much!  I did find my way into my craft room for a little while and thought I best make a Christmas card as I haven't done any yet!  Pressure off this year though I intend buying them and just making just a few very special ones!   I refuse to feel guilty about it so that's that!

 Poor Jamie is really suffering with a chest infection that does not seem to want to go and really rough cold and now on top of it all he has got a stomach bug so I am really worried about him, being so far away I can't do anything much about it! He has been to the doctors so I really hope he will soon start to improve.  Poor Max (the dog) was sick yesterday as well and I think I have something lurking, me no likey!!!!!!

I have a non traditional Christmas card to share today with a gorgeous image from Mo and I got my flowers and lace on there too!!!!

Morning and Happy Saturday!!!

I was up at the crack of dawn, had a horrible dream surrounding animal cruelty, wont go in to details but I get these a lot and I find it very distressing, probably because sadly there are so many low life complete waste of space brainless people out there that actually do these terrible things, personally I think they should be put on a remote island and left to rot after being injected with some horrible virus that will inflict terrible pain.  Anyway that's my rant over with for today and on a much happier note I got my card finished, not quite how I had it in my head but hey ho it will have to do!

Busy week.............


Phew, I am cream crackered what a  busy week at work and a busy weekend too!!   I have been naughty (I think) and  taken over Jamie's bedroom as I have totally outgrown my cupboard!  I spent all of yesterday and most of today sorting out my stash and moving it all upstairs.  Got tons of room now, really it could do with a coat of paint and some shelving but it will do for now.  We have left the bed and wardrobe in there so Jamie can still use it when he comes home and if for some reason he needs to move back home we can soon change it back to a bedroom!! We also had family staying with us last week which was lovely but of course I did not have time to visit anyone so hopefully I will catch up soon.  My laptop has finally given up the ghost too so now I have to use hubbies which is ok but not quite the same as having your own!!!

I sneaked in a card today though and I have been wanting to use this digi since I saw it a few weeks back, such a pretty image.........
