hello

Well, haven't I been a busy bee today? I am starting to get a flavour of what things would be like when that early retirement hopefully comes. Of course, not wishing my life away, but snow days are cool, in more ways than one!

Anyways, browsing blogland, as you do, I came across this fabulous blog 'The Spotted Chick'. As well as gorgeous creations there is a challenge to enter, so I did. A brill' sketch.....

As I had loads of time I hunted through the crafty cupboard and came upon this rarely used Whipper Snapper stamp 'potted kitty'. I coloured with copics/promarkers. The papers are MME 'quite contrary'. The sentiment is a Hero Arts clear stamp and the twine is from the Ribbon Girl.

Well, that's it from the snowy frozen West of Scotland for today. But who knows, there may be another crafty day in store tomorrow. I need to phone after 7am in the morning to find out (fingers crossed).
