Back In The Pink lol x

Yes, after the red run I was having, the pink is back!!!
And just in time for another Papertake Weekly challenge which this week is being sponsored by Kraftin Kimmie - check it all out here peeps.

This little cutie arrived at the sty recently and I just couldn't wait to use her. She is Miss Rosalie With Roses - you can get her without the blooms as well - and she is one of the new CC Designs images which you can now get your mitts on from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

You can see them both here :)

And it's time for another sketch ....

... and it's this one here ....

And this is what I did with it.

I coloured Miss Rosalie with the usual PMs and Glamour Dust duo. I also did the usual fabulous job with Photoshop (not!!) so there is more glare on here than soft Joe - whoever he is (possibly Gail Pratts new hubby in Corrie!!)

Ooops, I must have been going uphill when I stamped the sentiment lol xxx

The ribbon and button were from my stash and the sweet flower was from Simon Says Stamp.

The papers were from Dies To Die For and I did the MSBP thing (again!!) with the edges on the image

So that's the old card peeps.

I'm typing this with hands that are practially frozen and a very attractive shade of blue cos we are very short on oil so we are being mean as muck with the heating.

Ohh it's awful.

We only have about 3 days worth left - if we use it normally - and they can't deliver any more until probably next week - grrr!! We ordered last week and we were told 'a few days' which to be fair, it usually is, but this time it didn't happen. So we rang again yesterday and they said it would be with us in, yes you guessed, 'a few days'.

Now I am not the most patient soul on the planet. And when I am cold, I am decidedly tetchy, so I asked them to tell me the truth instead of giving me the crock of you know what that they were giving us (how vile of me, I know, but needs must!!). The truth is that they are currently working on deliveries from 29th December.

Why oh why oh why do they not tell you this in the first place!!!
If we'd known, we would not have turned the gaff into a tropical paradise like we did at the weekend.

Never mind - maybe all this shivering will shake the flab off me (I wish!!)

On a nicer note, Kyla had a fab party on Sunday. There were 2 parties on at the same time so it was wall to wall kids and VERY noisy but they all had a good time. And I bumped into someone I worked with nearly 20 years ago - small world!!!

My aunt got her an ironing board, a kettle and a toaster for her kitchen. She got the kitchen last year but she plays with it all the time. So we are being treated to lots of tea and toast and she's ironing my tea towels!!

She calls them her ironing frame and toast box!!!!
She will be a domestic goddess by the time she is 5!!!

Speaking of which, I better go and get the washing out of the machine.
Have a fab day and if you get a sec, nip over and check out what the fab and awesomely talented PTW girlies have done.

See you soon and hugs to all xxx
