Gosh, sorry, where have I been!!

Hi all!!

Sorry for the brief departure, I have been hit with a rotten cold this week and then the kids had it, then on Friday the small one decided to get the icky bug that took out half of his nursery, so all in all I've been pretty wiped out and have been getting in from work, having dinner then crashing out :-(  I'm still snuffly but the kids are getting better, so I have actually been able to do a bit of crafting today... whoo hoo!!

So just a quick one from me tonight, cos I still need an early night before next week

This is one of the Lily of the Valley stamps I bought at Ally Pally last week, which I have coloured with copics , then added glamour dust on her handwarmer and used some Diamond Dust (also from Ally Pally).

I've used papers Bo Bunny papers from the lovely Hayley from Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn - who is currently offering a 10% discount if you enter the code SEPTCBMAGAZINE at the checkout - and the (ahem) new Martha Stewart snowflake punch and the Joy charm also from, err... Ally Pally.

It's at this point I'm slightly scared to think ignoring exactly how much I spent, but it was all stuff I wanted needed, and it's not as if I have much crafting stuff already don't deserve it :-)

Hope you like it :-)

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges

Thanks for stopping by
