bbbbbbbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

 

Good morning everyone did you have a fab weekend, ours was very quiet but nice, I couldn't get any of the family to come out and play this weekend though it was freezing here and nobody wanted to venture outdoors...I think my lovely Dad was hibernating lol...even the temptation of a meal last evening couldn't get any of them to move...we did get loads done yesterday in the the house though...nothing massive but loads of those little annoying niggly jobs that you put off until you have too...there was a terrible draught downstairs and Phil put some fitted excluder on the front door and I sorted out a couple of bits of skirting that needed a gap filled, we did a bit of painting and sorted out the spare room getting rid of all the unwanted furniture and rubbish, so a productive day and we even managed a coffee out too...amazing what I can find to do when I want to fill time out so I don't have to think about smoking...thank you all so much for backing me with my giving up...I'm still going strong so far, my fingers and toes are firmly crossed you should see me hobbling about lol...right now onto my card for today which is for our new challenge over at Bunny Zoe's Crafts
this month it was our lovely Tracy's turn to choose and she picked the theme of Winter, perfect excuse to make a Christmas card with a frosty feel to it isn't it...I chose this gorgeously cute High Hopes - Penguin Friends stamp for my card coloured with distress inks and paper pieced with some lush Echo Park - Winter Wishes papers, the fabulous sentiment is cut from the pad's front cover. see we crafters waste nothing do we lol...I finished with some beautiful Marianne D Vintage Lace - Duchesse and a few punched snowflakes glittered with Stickles Glitter Glue - Crystal everything I used is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the sketch I made up as I went along and I'm entering this for the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenge, Joanna Sheen Challenge and the Charisma Cardz Challenge too...I'm staying in today and making tacos for dinner and doing a little bit of catch up crafting...oooohhhhh I feel in need of some colouring...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one and I hope you manage a bit of crafting too

Penguins have such personality. Great paper piecing and smart use of the cover. Keep up the smoking battle Mina. The rewards are worth it.
