Happy Tuesday

I am wondering today just how evil I must have been !!! I went out this morning to nip to the post office for stamps and stuff------- and there we go! A FLAT TYRE!!!!
After all the money I have spent on this inconvenience on the drive, over the last month I could have bought my own private plane! I tried to blow up the tyre with a cigarette lighter blower upper thingy (you know what I mean) thing, but it was hopeless so had to get the tyre folks out.... another £30.00 down my drain-----anyway, I am sitting in excited anticipation awaiting the delivery of a halogen oven !!! the delivery people quoted 3.40pm to 4.40pm, will they make the slot do you think?????

My card today was inspired by the colour of the coat, I woke up with it in my mind but I did not have the dark brown I wanted for matting, so this is more coffee and cream lol, if only I could craft in my sleep all my Christmas cards would be made lol, then again, all of Christmas is spread out on the bed and I have about 2 feet in which to sleep, any more and I will be on the settee until Christmas eve hehehhee


my parcel arrived at 4.37pm how good is that lol.....congratulated the little man, I did not think he was going to make it !!! I was delighted----- it does not take much to make me happy. PMSL-----

Cream cardstock
Brown card cuttlebuged with swiss dots and snowflakes
cream icicles cut on cricut and glittered
Mo's digital fabby Eskimo kisses
coloured with promarkers by aunty sue (she was trying out my smudging problem)
I did the fur on coats with fluffy stuff by woodware
sentiment LOTV cut with nestie
Heart and snowflake brad from stash
Double bow with ribbon from Mei flower
