Good morning :)
I have a card to share that I actually made a few weeks ago, but I was waiting for it to make it's journey across many miles to reach it's final destination.
*sigh* I love this image and these papers ♥
Sweet Sparkle is of course designed by the amazingly talented Sylvia Zet and she's available as a rubber stamp HERE or as a digital image HERE.
She's coloured, as always, with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers.
Purples and pinks are colours I use often but on their own, not together, but this was in homage to my friend, (and my hero) as it's a favourite colour combo of hers.
I used lots of birthday goodies on this card...my new Lil' Inkers stitched circles dies, Maja Design Sofiera papers, Simon Says tilted banner die and sentiment, and those little enamel dots.
Thank you to all my friends, for all my lovely goodies...you're the best ♥
I have a lovely weekend planned! The hubby is working away in Wales and won't be home until Sunday evening or even Monday. The boy just sleeps away his days, as does the cat, so it's like being home alone.
And I plan to spend some time in my craft room (sort of praying that no visitors turn up!)
After all, I deserve it! Especially after this morning's trauma!
We were broken in to a couple of years ago, on a Saturday morning between 7 and 8am. Phil had bobbed into work and left home at 7 and discovered the burglary on his return an hour later. I was traumatised because I'd slept through it, blissfully unawares upstairs in my bed.
Since then, I've become slightly obsessed with security, but especially when Phil's working away.
Phil left early this morning while I was still asleep, but I woke up to the sounds of the bin men crashing and banging around outside, and I did wonder what on earth they were doing to make so much noise, they don't usually wake me up. So I might as well get out of bed, and make myself a cuppa. Halfway down the stairs I stopped dead in my tracks at the sight of the front door...wide open.
Jeez but I thought my heart was going to explode, it was banging so hard!
We'd been broken into again? Is there someone still in my house??
Nope, someone had left the door wide open on his way out this morning!! No wonder I thought it was so noisy outside.
I deserve a crafty weekend just to recover from the shock of it all!
(and I deserve some online shopping to ease the pain of my distress)
Thanks for looking
