we have light...


Good morning everyone have you anything fabulous planned for today?...I didn't go out at all yesterday finished what I needed too and then had to wait in for an electrician to come to mend a couple of switches and the front porch light that refused to work no matter what we did...but we finally have light and visitors after dark don't have to grope their way around lol...then my lovely Dad was down for dinner so not a quiet day but a one where things got done...oh btw a few of you have asked about how my smoking is going, well I'm still not smoking...wow nearly three weeks now I didnt think that would ever happen...mind there as been a few temper tantrums and days I thought of chasing after people walking past smoking to mug them for it lol, but I resisted and poor Phil is getting used to me snapping his head off bless him but hopefully that will pass, sooner better than later would be better though for Phil's sake...right now onto my card for today...how amazing is this beautiful image from Mo's Digital Pencil, perfectly Christmassy isn't it...its called Taste of Winter and I coloured her with distress inks...the amazing papers are more from the Echo Park - Winter Wishes paper pad from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a lush ribbon and bow and a punched glitter snowflake...the fabulous sketch is from Simon Says Stamp challenge and I'm also entering it for the Bearly-Mine challenge and the Fussy & Fancy Friday challenge too...we are heading to a Christmas Craft and antiques fair this morning then out to lunch and meeting my Dad a bit later to get him a new tv for his kitchen and put an aerial up for it...so a busy day ahead I think and maybe buying something pretty and lush from the fair, you never know do you...whatever your up to today I hope its a wonderful one

Hi Mina, very sweet card with an adorable image :-) congrats for enduring non smoking, does it not feel good with no more bad smell and terrible taste in your mouth ? Keep on the good work ! (I stopped three months ago, and don't miss the bad smell and taste at all).
Have a good weekend !
