Sweet and Wonderful You

Hello, and welcome!

Didn't think  I'd have time to hop on the old 'puter, tonight.......been poorly sick over the weekend, and now two days behind with all the chores I wanted to get done before Jonathan and Co.  arrive, very early on Wednesday morning.......doesn't look like I'm goin' to catch up, when you do the maths, does it?

I think I'm just going to enjoy them being home, and will be helping to look for a new house for them, so you can have a little rest from my goings-on for a few days.....but behave yourselves, because you never know when I'll pop up in your reader....haaaa!

This is a ickle card I made on Friday night, just before the buggy lurgy struck me down.......but don't worry....I've disinfected it....haaahaaa!

I layered pink, white and tan papers onto the card base, then added another strip of toning stripey, layered onto more white paper.........

The sweet image is from Pink Gem.....I love Janet's stamps!  This, and the sentiment, were freebies........

I tied some pretty pink and green dotty ribbon, added the daisy button and pink beady-thingy (got it on a little roll), then popped them onto a little journal spot....all done!

That's me then, off to beat a few rugs, and mangle me washing...........
