Some humour to set you up for the weekend?

Morning all,

Had a good week? Hope so ... we had a visit from a fellow crafter earlier this week, always great to catch up with friends, isn't it? Sadly, their visit was over all too soon.

We've been decorating this week and have gone from fitted wardrobes to no fitted wardrobes in two days; three trips to the tip to get rid of the wreckage though. The nice lady at the tip is getting to recognise hubby!! Then it was wallpaper stripping! It will all be worth it in the end but, oh, the bit in between!

Unfortunately, for hubby, the weather has turned less "summery" (whatever that means!) so he's not even been able to sneak off for an hour to unwind!!! We both hate decorating and he does the vast majority of it (with me supervising and making tea) so he deserves the odd hour or so "off duty"!

Me? Well, in between the supervising and tea making, I found some time to hit the ToC (Table of Craftiness) and here's what I made ...... no Distress Crayons were harmed in the making of this ATC!

And I hope this close up indicates the twinkle of the Wink of Stella
