At long last.......



I am beginning to feel better after 3 long weeks of coughing and feeling really unwell......... we have another day of wall to wall sunshine, so I thought I should get out for a while.
 I went into town and managed to spend a bit more than I wanted, some dressy pants and £13.00 in the £1.00 shop!!! how extravagant..........and I bought a cream cake to go with my coffee when I got home lol......I also sat out in the garden for half an hour, reading with my coffee, the sun was so warm, it made me feel soooooo much better.

I have another Christmas card for you today. This is a stamp that I won in candy from Kevin McCrafty, just before I went on holiday, I did not get a chance to use it then and it is so pretty (thanks Kevin)
Again, I have gone for simple lines.

Joanna Sheen stamp
Coloured with promarkers
Matted onto green card
Lots of stickles.

I would like to enter the following challenges;

CRAFT challenge ----------Christmas

Craft your passion -------- Glitter

Forever friends -------- Animals/ or butterflies

IDIC ----------------christmas with snow (my snow is glitter, don't know if it counts lol)

Well, I hope you have managed to get out in the sun, or at least feel a little like spring is on the way..
Thank you for your visit

Hugs Tilly x

Hi Tilly
Nice to hear you are feeling better, and you had a day out in the lovely sunshine.
We too had a day out yesterday, it was also a gorgeous day down here too.
Your card is beautiful, I love the way you have the stamp down the bottom of the card, makes a change from them always in the middle.
It's foggy here this morning hopefully the sun might come out and play again today..... We can hope.......

Glad you're feeling better..there have been some vicious viruses around, haven't there? The sunshine definitely helps though, that's for sure!
I've seen your quilts on Jo's blog, really lovely..you are obviously a more skilled seamstress than I! I am enjoying doing the patchwork but nothing too small or intricate, I ain't got the patience for that :)
Hugs, LLJ 38 xxxx

So glad to hear you are feeling better, Tilly, and getting out in the sunshine! That Vitamin D is really good for you.

Love your pretty Christmas card! I'd happily come over and organize your stamps if we only lived closer! I'm OCD like that.

Take care and keep getting stronger!
