at long long long last...


Good morning everyone have you all got something amazing arranged for the weekend...I don't know what happened yesterday but no matter how much I tried I just couldn't get anything to upload onto my blog at all...I hate it when the gremlins hit don't you its one of those things you just cant do anything about and frustrates the hell out of me lol...but never mind at least I managed it today...I had a productive day yesterday and even gave my craft room a going over and emptied some more boxes, I discovered though that I need a lot more storage and like most tidy ups I found loads of play stuff I had forgotten about...ooohhhhh I love finding stash like that don't you...I unpacked a few more boxes and found the curtains I though had been thrown away too so another bonus, I just need to iron them and put them up now oops lol...then my lovely Dad came for dinner and we had a few giggles and a nice dinner together, its been a real family meal week this week, we went out to dinner on Thursday night with our gorgeous Daughter and her other half too, I love eating out with family don't you...its a fabulous way to catch up and have a few family chats...right now onto my finally uploaded card, this was supposed to be yesterdays but better late than never I guess...this fantastic Scrooge is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil...and yes I did a but more paper piecing (for a change lol) and coloured the rest of him using distress inks...doesn't those lush papers suit him down to the ground...they are from the Kaisercraft - Turtle Dove 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, the fab circular sentiment is from the same pad too...Im entering this for the Digital Tuesday Challenge, Crafty Catz Challenge and the Allsorts Challenge too...we are of to a continental farmers market this morning in search of some smoked garlic which we have run out off and then out to lunch and maybe a little mooch for some Christmas shopping, you never know do you...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and don't spend too much lol
