Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Drat, and double Drat!!!!

Can you believe the same catastrophe can happen twice in one day? Yesterday morning my bosses dad came in and asked if we would like anything from the pie shop. Patrick (young greedy sod) said he'd have a meat pie. I said "nowt for me i'm on a diet as you already know". Patrick-"get her a pie". Me "no thanks don't get me anything". Patrick-"get her a cake". Me " NO, i'm on a DIET, you KNOW that!!".  As you've guessed they bought me a meringue.Right, OK, whatever. I had it for lunch instead of the cup a soup i had taken with me. Next thing a mate of mine strolled in,  plonked a danish pastry on the counter and flounced out before i could say anything!! I remember a magazine article entitled "are your friends making you fat?" Well actually , YES.!
  Anyway here's todays cards.

Hedgies on sledgies! The stamp is from the Penny Black Christmas Critters set. The paper is one of the Docrafts pads i'm not sure which as the cover is missing.

Well that's it for now, i'm on my way to work I hope nobody comes anywhere near me with food!
   Thanks for visiting. Di.xx
