I'm Back xxx


Rather like a bad smell, I have come back lol xxx

This is my card for this week's Papertake Weekly
which is based on one of my sketcheroonies ........

So as per my previous post, today is my youngest's birthday, so happy birthday Emma xxxx I thought I would use the sketch and do her a card from Kyla .

Now there are a couple of rules for doing Emma's cards...

1) no Magnolias - she hates them (strange girl lol xx)

2) It has to be lilac

Soooo this is what I did.

Paper and sentiments are PP, natch cos I just loves it all, and the image is an oldish Sugar Nellies one which I still love loads. Of course, I used my Pro Markers and Glamour Dust to colour and highlight.

Hope ya likeeee xxx

We have been mad busy today. We did a load of food shopping including the rest of the stuff for crimbo dinner (but not the pud). Then we thought as we only had a little bit of family prezzie stuff left to do, we would go and have lunch in Chiquitos - a local Me-he-can, ariba lol xxxx.

So we did, and very nice it was!!!

But as we speak, Richard is still stuffed (he is such a greedy boy) and I am still feeling drained from the piddly tiddly glass of vino blanco I had. Why is it that one teeny tiny glass can make you sooooo sleepy if you drink it in the afternoon?

So we have done most of the wrapping - that is the royal 'we' by the way lol xxx The food is mostly done and there is just the stuffing and mince pies to make. One last trip to Sainos tomorra and that is it!!

Woohooooo!!!

And it was Kyla's nativity tonight, although I didn't go cos it's mine and Richard's turn tomorrow. My aunt and Emma and Nikkie went tonight and I was soo jealous. I am keeping my fingers crossed cos Kyla is starting to get a nasty cold and is not 100%, poor dink. I will be devastated if she is too poorly tomorrow and can't do it, but I guess it is one of those things. But even so, I might cry with disappointment.

I may well be back before the big day with some cardage but if I am not, or you aren't, have the most FAB Christmas and New Year. Thank you for all your lovely comments throughout the year - they have meant so much to me and I appreciate that you have taken the time to stop by xxxx

Here's to a fabulous and crafty 2009 peeps :))

Loads of love and hugs xxxxxx
