Happy weekend

Good morning my lovely bloggers. I hope your enjoying your weekend so far. I can not believe how quickly Saturday went. We had to take Jasmine to a belated Christmas school party yesterday at mid-day, which i have to say was a little out of the way and kind of dictated the rest of the day. Then we were out in the evening for a birthday meal. Of course i love to eat as you know, but its always good to get back home and back into my comfortable PJ's. Im never happier than being sat at my desk indoors in the warm! however, it seems to have turned cooler again and sitting in my conservatory is not as warm as i would wish. As much as i loved the snow, i have to admit i am starting to look forward to the brighter mornings and warmer weather, bring on SPRING xxxxx

So i didn't actually get much crafting done today, i made a altered shopping list board, but my camera needs recharging and im unable to take a picture yet. So that will come later in the week. Today i am showing you a card that i made over a week ago, infact nearing a fortnight ago now i come to think of it. Those who know me, know how awful my memory is, a head full of cotton wool, thats me im afraid!!

Today i have my mum for lunch, so have to get the lunch going, but i am hoping to decorate a candle, thank you Diane for the instructions you mailed me, they are perfect. Even I can follow them - at least i think so!

I have had this Annie stamp for a while, but this is only the second time ive used it. I absolutely love this little girl, what a cutie, really must use it more often. The papers are from the DCWV La Creme stack. I finally managed to muster up enough courage to cut into it. Another one of my new years resolutions, to use all those special papers!! - not an easy one to keep though. I prefer to just look, stroke and preserve them!

The sentiment is one i had from a long time ago, by the glitter girls, this ive never used before now! I shall use it again though as i do rather like it. Such sweet words.

Colouring with my pro-markers and copics, with the wings being slightly stickled.

So my lovelies hope to be back later in the week with some more cards i made a while back and the altered shopping list. Will be visiting you all later, hugs Linda x

wandykj said...

I'm so like you-I too love to collect those papers & look at them, it's really hard to cut into them, but I've made that a resolution this year too! Use some of my stash items!

Love the sentiment! So pretty & elegant at the same time.

Beings January is almost over means we're closer to Spring, I hope, today we've had snow again & blizzard conditions with whiteout. Makes for a long stressful ride to & from work. I want my Sunshine:)

Talk to you soon!
~Love & Hugs~
