Back Again, And I'm Gutted ...

I'll tell ya why in a sec xx
But first, it's time for another Papertake Weekly

This week it's one of my sketches - a simple one with lots of scope I thought.

And not only that, but it has been sponsored by the very wonderful Katharina - Whiff Of Joy - and the lucky girlie gets to pick a stamp of their own choice. What a great prize, and thank you Katharina xxxx

Do bob over and check out the DT work cos as always, those awesome girlies have made some absolute stunners.

So this is my version with all the usual suspects.

The gorgeous image and sentiment are from the CC Designs My Rubber Ducky set which you can get from the wonderful Dies To Die For. It is just the sweetest - I love it. And of course, I coloured it in with the old PM bad boys and then sprinkled a bit of Glamour Dust over for good measure. The paper is PP Really Big Dots and the card blank is from Craftwork Cards .

Guess which punch I used!!!! Yes, the MSBP which seems to be back to normal after it's diva strop lol xxx The yummy ribbon is from my stash - not much of it left now so I am on the mooch for some more.

Some dimension, a bit of doodling et voila xxxx

Well like I said, I am gutted. I only went and fell asleep during HK - can you believe that!!!

I can't, sob sob!!!

I must have been so pooped after my mad few weeks that I zonked out. I got as far as the celebs making dishes for his fabulousness from their childhoods (which was quite touching I thought), and the next thing I knew, the news was on, my specs were skew wifty, the hair was like a Mohican on a very bad day and there was that little tell tale line of dry slobber on the side of my face.

Ruddy well attractive - not!!!

Thank God I hadn't got the sex kitten pjs as well, that's all I can say, cos I would have looked a flamin' treat.

So I have had no Marco fix tonight and have not a clue what has happened, post snooze. So if anyone knows pleeeeeeeeze share!!!

The dentist wasn't so bad but I have to admit that for most of the afternoon, I looked like I'd had a stroke, or so my eldest kept telling me. I had that fat lip feeling where it feels like your mouth is moving in opposite directions when you are speaking. My kids thought it was funny, the sods!!!

Before I go, I will have to share this with you.

Today, I discovered Twinnings Swiss Chocolate drink.

The idea is that you add it to hot milk to make a hot choc drink but I can tell you that if you put a few scoops of plain ice cream into your smoothie maker or blender, add some cold milk and then chuck in a few spoonfuls of the choc mix, you get the most delish choc milk shake EVER. Probably not the most healthy, but what the heck!!!!

The diet is going well then Miss Piggy?????

Honestly, if you try it you will be hooked.

On that yummy note, I'll see you soon lovely peeps. Have a fab evening and huggiest of hugs xxxxx

Hi Dawny, it really makes me smile to read your blog - just brilliant. Two things - love the card so pretty and soft colours and secondly Hells Kitchen. No problem - go on your computer via the internet to and then click on ITV player - you will be able to play the episode back from last night and watch it in full - that is how I catch up with most of the tv programmes that clash on timings or I miss - hope this helps xxx
