Friday and the weekend is almost here . . . .

Morning readers,

Hope you've had a great week, despite the weird weather .. shorts and T's at the weekend, rain on Tuesday, frost (and some people even had snow) on Tuesday ... so much for SPRING!

There seemed little point in bundling up, clearing the windscreen and heading out (since I had nothing that I HAD to head out for) .... so I hit the Table of Craftiness for some stamping, the couch for some crochet and some reading too - a nice relaxing way to spend some time!

  • Nesting circle dies to cut the 2½" and 2¼" circles

A gorgeous CAS penguin card, Kathyk. The addition of those snowflakes just above them really grounds them well. Thank you for sharing and joining us at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge. :) Lynda DT

Lovely cute ATC . . . Fab font on that sentiment.

Cute frosty penguins too.

Happy Friday! X

Two really cute images you've used Kathy and both coloured beautifully. I love the added glossy accents on the umbrella, and the numbers image stamped in the background of the ATCoin, and the background paper goes well with the sweet penguins, and the nice sketchy sentiment suits it perfectly. x
