Hello and welcome to Monday!
Morning and welcome to Monday in blogland,
Last evening saw us heading to Gloucester for dinner with friends. Now it's only 35 miles but, with the high winds, it took a little longer than anticipated. It was my turn to drive and it was a bit of a battle with the wind to keep the car on the straight and narrow! Our friends were both well and they served up a yummy dinner which we enjoyed, as usual, and a very pleasant couple of hours was had by all, with us eventually arriving home around midnight.
No surprise that we slept late this morning - as we're normally in bed before then! At least having not touched a drop last night (aside from the modest amount in the dessert!) I was unaffected by a sore head . . . . hubby wasn't quite so lucky!!!
And on the topic from yesterday of the psychic manatees . . . which one was right? Well it was Buffet (who has more correct predictions on his/her side) and the Green Bay Packers won by 31 to 25!
Anyway, on to craftier things . . . . .
Over at Simply Less is more they have launched a new challenge and this week it is ....... white, black and pink. Obviously, your entry has to be a clean and simple design, which I am currently LOVING. Nipped over there to have a look at the competition and almost decided not to enter!! There are some beautiful cards, I looked at a number of blogs - all with FANTABULOUS entries but I was particularly taken with an entry from Sarita, do check out her blog here, it's a lovely CAS design drawn freehand using Prismacolour pencils. Mind you - take a look at them all - it'll take a while but it will be worth it! I can't be sure mine will look as stunning as everyone elses but . . . .
