Feelin' Blue & Just Magnolia Too x

No not me cos we got our oil - wooohooooo!!
To celebrate the end of our hyperthermia, I've been going round the house in tee shirt (short sleeved) and thin trousers. It is just wonderful to be warm again :)

No I meant the blue card.
I made it during the oil crisis (pink pig sty, not middle east!!) so maybe there is a subliminal message somewhere!!

And as it's Friday, it's time for another fabbydoodles challenge over at Just Magnolia and this week it's time to say

thank you.

As always, the fabulous DT have done some beautiful work so do nip over and check it out. And we have a wonderful sponsor as well for it is none other than our very own Mrs Whimsy.

Yes it's our fabby Denise xxx

I love this Tilda and I coloured her with me old PMs but no Glamour Dust.

Instead, I used my new Atyou Spica pen which I got from Tracy at Dies To Die For. It gives the most beautiful and subtle pearly sparkle. I don't think you can see it properly on here but I did her socks with it and I went over the outline as well.

The papers were from a pack I got ages ago - no label sorry, so I don't knhow where they were form or what they are. I am sooo trying to use up the mountain of 12 x 12s that I have collected over the years.

And I do mean moutain peeps.

Of course I just had to do it!!!
I had to put a MSBP on there somewhere. And the ribbon is a bit of organza I had in my stash.

A little bit of bling, a dodgy angle and there you have it :)

Well like I said, we got our oil.
This was the day after Richard went and bought 50 litres from them. It cost us nearly £40 - we had to buy the containers as well, AND pay £3 for the privilege of using our debit card. But we were desperate, and so were lots of others peeps as well.

You could possibly be forgiven if you wondered if they weren't being truthful with us when they said they didn't know when they would deliver. Had they have told us they were coming the following day, then we would not have bought the extra.

Naughty naughty me thinks!!

Well onwards and upwards and all that.
Emma is going to London today - she is going to see Hairspray tonight. I am sooo jealous, but not as jealous as I would have been if Michael Ball was still in it!!!

But it means that we get to have Kyla all to ourselves this weekend and as they are moving out at the end of March - I cannot even think about it right now - we are making the most of it. We don't quite know what we are going to do yet cos it is all dependant on the good old weather. But I'm sure we'll have a bit of a laugh whatever we do.

On that note, have the best day - the weekends starts here, woohoooo!!!!
I'll be back soon as soon no doubt, with another loads of waffle and a card to share as well.

Hugs to all xxx
