the final decision was reached...


Good morning everyone, its ok you don't have to be quiet there's no hangovers here lol...we had a great night, nice meal and company but we didn't stay because it was a combined dinner with loads of other companies having their dinners too...some were getting a little...er....lets say merry...well drunk actually lol and a bit rowdy so we came home early...not really our kind of thing...such a shame that's others had to cut our night short but some people will use any excuse to get that drunk wont they...I had decided on the LBD but then while we were out yesterday I spotted a fab glitzy sparkly gold cardigan and a huge bargain so ended up wearing that, a cream silk vest and trousers and high heeled boots...smart and comfortable...well it was smart until I dripped gravy down the cream vest anyway lol...Phil looked lush in a charcoal coloured suit and a peach coloured shirt, he cleans up well lol, I love to see a man in a suit dont you...my lovely Dad is back from Belfast and we had a little jaunt out with him yesterday to get him some shopping and it was lovely to catch up with him but we didn't have much time and will get some serious coffee chat going on today instead...right now onto my card for today...I think my staz-on ink pad needs topped up as this little sweetie from Stampavie is looking a little faded isn't he...hes called Ruffles a Present for you - Helz Cuppleditch and all Stampavie stamps are a massive 40% off atm so a brilliant bargain too and of course you dont need to use him just for Christmas...I coloured him with distress inks and paper pieced the parcel and ribbon with more of the lush Teresa Collins 6x6" Paper Pad - Christmas Cottage I used for my card...I finished with a gorgeous wired Organza Ribbon - Dark Green (25mm Wide) made into a bow and a cute little button from my stash...everything except the button is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nikki has a fabulous Weekend Special this weekend with 15% off across the store so hop on over and grab yourself a bargain or two...the fab sketch is from Try Stampin' on Tuesday challenge and I'm also entering it for the Card Makin Mamas challenge and the Marianne's Design Divas challenge too...right I'm off to make some bacon sandwiches for breakfast...whatever your up to today have a wonderful one

Im happy you had a nice time while it lasted. Too bad because you had to leave sooner because of some people who don't know how to behave. I agree with you, some people will use any excuse they get to get drunk. What a shame! :(
Now on to your card ... I think it turned out beautifully. Hugs! xx

Ruffles sure is a cutie. Maybe he's pale from a Christmas party with all his canine pals!

Your outfit sound gorgeous and comfy. I love cream and gold combinations. They make you feel real festive and chic. I cringed at the gravy on the silk.

Hi Mina, yes I love to see a man in a suit, they look so handsome in them. Im sorry to hear your party was cut short because of the others getting drunk I would leave early to, as its so degrading to see others in that state.
I love your card, that image is so cute and your papers are gorgeous. hugs Shirleyx
