Weekend warmer


Well it is now that two lurvely heating engineers turned up the morning, courtesy of the home insurance thing I get with my bank account, and had the boiler leak repaired in about 5 minutes, and that included clambering into the under stairs cupboard... hurrah, so we are warm again :-D  

The kids have been packed off to Nanny and Granddads this afternoon as school has finished but I am still working until Friday (groan!) although HB finishes on Wednesday so I have a day off to go Christmas shopping on Thursday with him, nothing like leaving it to the last minute huh :-D  He doesn't know it yet but he is being sent to the supermarket on Friday (with two kids in tow!) to get the last of the food shopping - just the veg and stuff though as I've ordered all the meat from a local butcher, as has SIL and she will be picking it all up in one go for me :-D

Anyway, quick (ish) post, and I am sharing another card made using this lovely image by Ticked Pink and yes, I know I have used her before, but I really like colouring her in, and so many of my friends will just "get" her!!

Anyway, this time I deviated from the reds and used papers from the MME Lost and Found Portobello Road collection, not Christmas papers at all, but I'm nearly Christmas'd out and still have a whole heap of cards to make, including ALL the family ones.... groan!!  

Can you tell I'm getting a bit stressed... look how little there is on this card... you never know, it might just fit in an envelope, rather than me having to make a box as well!!  No idea why she looks a bit green (well, not her, jsut her frock!) she's quite blue IRL!!

Anywho, there you go.  Fingers crossed I'll be posting more throughout the week, thanks for stopping by
