Hi there and welcome to Monday afternoon
Not entirely sure where the morning went but suspect it owes much to night nurse! I slept clean through till 10:00!! Probably a combination of jet lag, the cold and the remedy! Still, feeling considerably brighter today just congested! Reckon this cold is on it's way (fingers crossed).
Not sure what I've missed because I've not been on-line as much as I would normally be - sorry everyone if I've been around to check out your blogs.
The themed challenge over on Craft Mad & Loving It this Sunday was presented by Lauren and is: SHAPED TAGS!!!!!!!!! Now some people thought "YIKES" but I just knew that I had recently acquired two adorable little Hero Arts cling stamps in the shape of a snowman and holly tag - PERFICK unless I am much mistaken. I have bought an enormous roll of black and gold gift wrap for my Chrissie pressies this year too so wanted to incorporate this in to my tag, hence mounting my cut out tags first on to gold and then on to black before punching a hole and attaching some gold braid for my tag. I coloured my tags using pro markers (including the blending marker) before highlighting with holographic stickles - hope you like them.
For those of you who have been following my blog posts whilst I was Stateside you will know that I "killed" my camera! Well, my dear hubby, who is sooooooooooo talented, managed to take it apart (being well outside of the warranty) and identified the problem. With a little solder and glue we are now back to two operational cameras and he no longer has to put up with my artwork on his camera!!! THANKS dear.
Not sure how this week is going to pan out because of this cold - I have a hair & Beauty appointment on Thursday (post holiday primp!) and several friends that I really want to get round to see but don't really think I can socialise whilst contagious so that may have to wait till next week. If you are reading this dear friends then please don't think I'm ignoring you but I have no voice so cannot even ring you to explain!!! Sorry, will be along as soon as I can.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday peeps.
