Hello Peeps! Hope you are all well, or recovering from unwell, today. After the high of Thursday, it was down to earth with a bump yesterday. I woke up in the early hours of Friday morning (it happens when you reach a certain age) needing the loo. I stumbled out of bed into the bathroom and sat there thinking Thank goodness it's Saturday. Imagine my distress when the alarm went off at 5.45 and I realised that it was only Friday and I had another day at work to get through!
But never mind, Saturday it is now! I've been for a tail trim this morning - feeling much tidier now. I have to confess that the fur was looking a little like tumbleweed as I'd gone longer between snips than usual and with curly fur it plays havoc in damp and windy conditions. So, nicely preened, I came home and set to with getting a casserole in the oven for tonight's dinner. That is bubbling away gently now (ooh the wonderful smells of chicken, shallots, mushrooms and BEER - yep, a beer based gravy for this one - you should have heard Toad howl when I nicked a bottle from his stash).
One card for you today, but I am off to the craft space to play again once this is posted:
And the ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image: My most used LOTV stamp, James The Bear In Snow
Colouring Medium: Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers & Pads)
Iced Spruce, Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap and Tumbled Glass
Papers: BoBunny Snowfall Collection (so delicious)
Sentiment: LOTV Christmas Postmarks
Extras: Nestabilities Grommet (where's Wallace?) Labels, gems from stash, Martha Stewart and
Hobbycraft snowflake punches
Thanks so much for popping over today, I appreciate each and every one of you so much. Without you, this blog wouldn't happen. And a big thank you to everyone who left such a supportive message on my mad Timmie post on Thursday - who knows, one day I might even start to believe I can do it !!
And before I go, I just want to say a big hello to two super bloggie buds, Lisa (Wishcraft) and Clare (My Purrfect World ...) - you both have a very special place in my heart.
Huge Hugs, Sxx
