yes yes yes about time too...

Good morning everyone and yes yes yes my internet is working again, well so far so fingers crossed, I did loads of blog hopping last night and caught up with some of your fantastic work I had missed...not a fraction of what I need to do but its a start anyway...you will be pleased there is no more mysterious marks on my arm although its still very red and bleedy but I still don't have a clue what caused them, I dont have any animals and Phil is 100 miles away, but keep on guessing everyone I love hearing them lol...I would love to have natural coloured linen curtains in the farmhouse but when I went hunting for linen omg how surprised was I at the price so if all you surfers out there come across some reasonably priced material sites that deliver to Northern Ireland let me know will you, because I refuse to take out a second mortgage for curtains lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new Digi Teams Crafts & Me challenge, I had a little bit of a senior moment (now no sarky comments please lol) and got my weeks confused, this weeks challenge is Bling...thanks goodness I glittered this stunning Sara Burrier Messenger image up a bit as I think it still fits the theme, well just anyway...I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with this lush Basicgrey paper, I haven't a clue what its called but will find out and report back...I used some brown ribbons, a tiny heart charm, buttons and a sentiment stamp to finish...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday...I'm off to pack a bag for going away tomorrow night and I wont forget my camera I promise...have a wonderful day everyone and if you have time pop on over to the Crafts & Me challenge to see what the rest of the digi girls came up with

I can't comment on your wounds. It's just too freakish. I do know what you mean about window treatments. You can spend as much on them as furniture. Now about this card. Really different image but I like it. You make everything wonderful.
Don't forget the camera.

Hi sweetie love this card its gorgeous the colours are lush & of course the image is just fabulous.
There is a shop on ebay called
pandoras-upholstery they are fabulous & all material is on a roll. I make 90% of all my drapes & I get most of it from this shop I'm not sure about their delivery so you will have to check it out hun but its a fab shop think they only sell large amounts tho its not by the metre.....its why I have so much fabric lol. I brought 2 large rolls of muslim to do my conservatory but then changed my mind so now its sitting in my cupboard, well standing lol.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
