Good afternoon




I hope you are are feeling well and keeping away from the bugs that are doing the rounds!
I have not had much time to craft this past 6 days as Mum has a chest infection. In between her not sleeping well, I have had to sit with her a lot.
Today though feels like Friday 13th! I went in the greenhouse first thing to re-pot 48 plug plants. While clearing up, I knocked a tray of tomato plants (which had just come through) onto the floor. Oh well, start again.
I then went in the shed to get something for tea out of the freezer........I discovered the freezer had given up the ghost and everything was defrosted......I had to throw away about £50.00 worth of beef and fish.
I went to get the washing out of the machine and found I had washed it without powder! I washed it again and put it outside while it was dry and windy..... and it rained on it! hehehehehe.......I think I may give up for today and have a fresh start tomorrow!

My card today is for a a couple of challenges I saw over week-end

Old PM papers
Penny black hedgie stamp (one of my first ones)
coloured ith water colours and glittered
MS snowflake punch
greeting and twine from stash

I am entering it into the following challenges;

Winter Wonderland
--------- Pink

Thank you for your visit and keep warm

Hugs Tilly x
