jingle bells & tinkle bells...

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a brilliant weekend...did you get up to anything exciting, if you did go on tell me all about it and make me jealous...we had a very quiet weekend and just did a little mooching round shops and went out to lunch, my shoulder and neck are still very sore and super stiff so I'm going to take everyone's advice and go to the docs to see what he says, Phil thinks its a trapped nerve from the fall and that we should take out Mina Accident cover lol, I think Im just clumsy and it will take a little while to unstiffen and barring anymore falls I will be champion...well the countdown is going down and theres only 3 days to go for the brand spanking new Sugar Nellie release sneak peek week...oooooohhhhh cant wait
but in the meantime hands up everyone who knew I would have to have another colour of this gorgeous Flora simply adorable digi from Sugar Nellie, I really wasnt happy with how I coloured her the first time and think the softer colour hair works much better with her...what do you think?...I used distress inks to colour her and used a scrap of paper I had from Cosmo Cricket Mitten weather, its a fantastic soft lilac isnt it, I love it when I can use scraps and even more when they are last christmas's papers...I finished with a lush soft satin ribbon and a sentiment...the fab sketch is from the Dutch Dare Card challenge but Im not sure if it counts as I ran out of paper and missed a bit off...Im also entering this for the City Crafter scrap happy challenge and the Ribbon Girl ribbon challenge too...well Im of to the Docs then the supermarket with my lovely Dad today and hopefully painkillers willing I will catch up all your lush blogs tonight...whatever your up to today have a wonderful day

She looks stunning, I took Mum to local park for some fresh air while it was nice and found they had a 1940's afternoon on, complete with brass band. (no adverts about it)so we sat in the sunshine for an hour to listen, it was lovely and Mum had a sing!

Oh Mina, she looks so beautiful - and that colour of paper is just gorgeous.
Hope the doctor is able to sort you out quickly. My hubbie phoned for a doctors appointment this morning because his sciatica has got worse - all he managed was a telephone conversation with the nurse, who prescribed him hundreds of pills and sent him a leaflet about backs!
Love, Andrea xx
