Shirley in wonderland...


Good morning everyone have you all had a good week...Phil has been working very late this week and I have missed our armchair chats every night as hes so tired poor thing when hes settles he falls asleep but it will even itself out I'm sure...we are ssssoooooooo looking forward to Christmas this year, it will be our first real Christmas together for 11 years, Phil always came home Christmas eve and went back on Boxing Day so we never ever had the chance to enjoy all the Christmas preparations etc together, but this year we are planning to go to every single thing that's going, carol services, lights being switched on, late night shopping everything we can jam in...I have never seen Phil so looking forward to it as he is, he has even been looking at wreaths for our front door and has narrowed it down to three that he really likes, I'm letting him go with it and whatever he picks will be wonderful...we are like a couple of kids looking forward to putting up our tree together and Phil says he would love lights outside so why not indeed lol...I thank my lucky stars every single day that he is home and we see each other every night and will never let us take it for granted ...aaaaahhhhhhhh ok enough slushy stuff Mina lol...onto my card for today how amazing is this beautiful Mo's Digital Pencil digi...look at that adorable face only Mo could draw...this is the stunning Shirley and doesn't she look like shes in wonderland with that amazing paper...it has no writing on it but I asked Sara who owns the shop I bought it from and she thinks its by DCWV...whatever make it is its beautiful I had fantastic fun cutting out all the bits for embellishments and with the paper there was definitely no need for anything else or it would have been crowded don't you think...of course I coloured her with my usual distress inks...I'm entering it for the Bearly-Mine Challenge, Lady Anne's Challenge and the Paper Shelter challenge...I'm off out today with my lovely Dad we bought him some reading glasses and I got a phone call at 11.30 last night which set me in a panic as he never rings that late, to tell me his leg had fallen off...his glasses leg not his leg of course lol...so we are off back to the shop to get them replaced, seriously they could last longer than 12 hours don't you think lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
