She's going to get cold feet!!

LOL, at least I think she will with no socks or slippers or shoes on :-D  More of that in a minute :-D

Anyway... hello!!!  Sorry I've not been about lately, I've been manic since going back to work and I've been too shattered to craft, amazing that two weeks off work can play such havoc with your system, such that going back leaves you knackered!!  Still I know I was lucky to have time off, so I'm not really complaining :-D.  

This weekend we went shopping for a tux for HB to wear to a black tie do we are going to in a couple of weeks.  Honestly he complains about me shopping!!  We went through goodness alone knows how many styles of jacket - shawl collar, notched collar, one button, two button; shirts with wing collars, turn down collars; then cumberbunds, pre-tied ties, self tied ones, waistcoat or not... the list went on...  Anyway after an absolute age we got one and I think he is happy.  Just got to get him to make his mind up on the 3 pairs of shoes he tried and we are sorted... me I hear you ask???  Dress sorted, shoes sorted, wrap sorted, handbag... choice of two :-D  LOL!!

Anyway, enough with the rambling, here's my card which I made for my friends birthday, and then promptly left it at home today... duh!!


I used some papers from a MME pad, part of my New Years Resolution to use up some of my massive hoard of papers... and the lovely velvet lace is from LCI - I have a horrible feeling that this lovely pink shade is out of stock (I'm not surprised it's lovely), but there is some gorgeous antique gold lace colour, which I just have to have!!


Isn't this image by Saturated Canary gorgeous!!  Although I still think that she will get cold tootsies, personally I love my fluffy lounge socks they are fabulous and fluffy, and much better than slippers as I have a few pairs so can wash them each time so they don't get yucky!!

Please may I enter these challenges


Thanks for looking - hopefully my mojo will soon be back and I'll be crafting more often :-D
