a grey and pink christmas?...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and had a fantastic weekend...what did you get up too, anything exciting...we didn't do a lot as my pain in the hip from falling has now turned into an ache in the bum lol...oh no does that mean I really have become a pain in the butt lol...isn't it strange that things break down when you really could do without the added expense, my phone finally gave up and went to phone heaven, mind it is 6 years old and cost me about £30 so I cant really complain can I...my lovely Phil offered to buy me an early Christmas present though so I didn't even have to buy one myself...is it just me or does it not seem crazy spending hundreds of pounds on a phone when the Samsung one I got does everything I need anyway and it even has an mp3 and radio that's a bonus and was half price at £49...oooohhhh I do love a bargain don't you and its a fabulous phone too I love it...right now onto my card for today...have you seen this new set from Mo's Digital Pencil...this little cutie is from that Valerie in Winter set of 3 stamps...its such a great bargain and would be fantastic to paper piece but for this one I coloured her with distress inks and glittered the snow and her bobble on her hat with some Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust...I kept the colours really simple and teamed her up with a pad I have had for ages...the papers are from the Basic Grey 6x6 Little Black Dress paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts but that was a couple of years ago so it wont be in stock now...I added a stunning two tone organza ribbon tied in a bow and a lovely checked button (well I had to sneak one in somewhere didn't I lol and finished with a rub on sentiment...the fab sketch is from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge and I'm also entering it for the BasicGrey challenge and the ABC Christmas Challenge too...I need to get some crafting done today, well hopefully anyway so I'm having a craft room lock in...whatever your up to today I hope you stay nice and toasty ad warm wherever you are

I'm sorry to hear you are still not feeling well. I hope the ache will go away soon!
I know whatyou mean about the crazy phone prices. It's great you got one at a reasonable price though.
YOur card is very beautiful. I like the non-traditional colours.
