OK, who stole the last week?????

I haven't been online in days, and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms! How sad is that?

I've been doing Churchly things as we begin to prepare for Christingle and the Nativity Play. We're starting early this year, but of course the last few days will be a total rush as usual!

Anyway, to the card! I meant to enter this into last week's PBSC, but I missed the boat. Too bad! Joey will recognise the stamp and papers because they're from the blog candy I won! The image is Penny Black, the papers are 'Paisley Road', the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. I didn't list the Promarkers, 'cos I just knew I'd remember 'em. Nope. It's terrible having a middle-aged memory, sometimes I even forget my children's names!!

Now, I know that gorgeous armful of flowers are meant to be daffs, but I coloured them pink and put blobs of glitter glue to cover the trumpets, and I think it doesn't look too bad. I also used my Woodware trimmer with a wavy-edged blade to cut the mat.

The recipient of the card turned 12 last weekend. She adores moggies, so this stamp was just purr-fect!

On which awful pun I will be off to visit all your blogs, which I have so shamefully neglected. It's such a treat seeing all the gorgeous things you've created!

Have a good Monday, and thanks for looking.

luv, Mags x
