Good morning everyone how are you all, you finished you things to do list yet?...please say you haven't it will make me feel so much better...I managed to put a huge dent in my shopping list yesterday evening with a super fast trip to Marks & Spencer's and buying 7 gift cards...I love it when people want gift cards dont you, you just pick the card and pay...the woman behind me in the queue was buying the same and we gave each other the knowing nod...you know the one that says a universal 'sorted; lol...I only have another five or so to get now and the hardest one of all of course you know the one don't you...the Husband!!!!...I honestly haven't got a clue...he wants a new laptop but I hadn't planned spending that much lol...so maybe a tablet instead but I know he will spend his whole time moaning he cant type on the screen lol...if you have any ideas please let me know and bless you all so much for the lovely things you said about my terrible Robins yesterday, some of your comments really made me chuckle lol...right now onto my card for today and I'm pleased to say theres not a drop of red in sight phew...this bit of gorgeousness is from the new Winter Wonderland release at Sugar Nellie...shes called Gift Wrapping and I used my distress inks to colour her and of course you know the rule don't you...if theres wings then there has to be glitter doesn't there and I used my Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust for glittering...the fantastic papers and tag are from the Kaisercraft - Lady Rose 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad, I added some sparkly gems from the Mixed Bag Clear Flat Acrylic Round Gems - 3mm, 4mm & 5mm pack and a lush two tone ribbon bow, the papers, gems and glitter glue are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the fab sketch is from the Just Us Girls Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Pile it On Challenge (P for Pink) and the Dynamic Duos Challenge too...its another crafting day today still loads and loads to do so I will be locked away in my craft room all day...do you feel sorry for me...nope me neither lol...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

And UGH! Husbands! I swear mine is impossible to buy for. Even when you get him something he really wants, there's no reaction when he opens it. Drives me mad! x
