Christmas Penguins

Hi, and welcome!

Weather is still much wetter than it should be for August....and windy, too, today........suits me though....ha!
I usually post to my blog in the evenings, but opened my fridge this morning, and realized it's been a while since I shopped for food.....that's what happens when your husband works away a lot, and you'd rather craft than eat!!
My left arm isn't good today, which means driving is a no-no (flippin' lymphodema!), so daughter #2 (Gillian) is comin' to the rescue, and taking me (and 4 kids!) to the supermarket.... so I'm fitting in my post now....then maybe I'll eat tonight...ha!

I'm hoping that the arm will be better for tomorrow, because daughter #3 needs me to be at her house, to look after her 4 kids, including 9 month old Millie.......#3 (Leigh-Anne) had a wisdom tooth removed last Thursday, and now has a raging infection.......antibiotics were started this morning, but a low dose because she breast-feeds Millie.....ho-hum.......

Made this little card on Saturday....not had time to make anything since....sigh......and it's another of those decoupage ones that I wanted to make use of..........

Still don't know for sure where I got these........Penny Black was suggested, but not sure...........

I love the expressions on those ickle faces....whoever the artist is, she did a great job!..........

Used papers from my scraps again, and a Christmas rose, edged with a little gold ink........the snowflake again from my Shapeabilities......

I love makin' these rolled roses.....took me ages to get the knack, though.....ha!

Hope you like......my Christmas stack is lookin' a bit healthier, at least......lol!

  11. Lordy woman, you are waaaaaaaay to skinny to skip meals. Guess I need to add you to my nag list too. Humph! It's getting mighty long.

    Teach me those roses please. Love it. I don't know whose images they are but again you have created something that is so stinkin' cute.

    Hoping arm is better for you - will be checking in on you ;)

  12. Really AM, have you never heard of online grocery shopping? I couldn't survive without it. Josh eats all the blueberries in the store by the time I've finished trailing round there. Well worth the delivery charge, blueberries are expensive you know......

  18. Oi Lady! you should know better than to admit you've skipped meals on here...before you know it you'll have a whole coop of worry hens after you! me included! Hope your arm is feeling better and that things are more manageable again.
