Well what a week ...

I've been looking after my MIL's shop ( see the link in my sidebar ) while she had a well earned break.
I have got pics but my camera is still in my crate. I made a few things for the shop, which I really enjoyed. I don't usually paint as it's just not my thing, but I found it very relaxing and theraputic.
I had a few visitors over the week and I thank them for their company. Tracey, Marie, Leanne, Susan, Anne and Vicki.
Back to the norm now and my usual night work as of tonight. And back to my comfort zone CARDS. Yes I meed to make some, I feel the need to colour, cut and create. I sound like a hairdresser LOL.
I'l be back in my craft room this week as OH is on a course so I've got the company of DS and his non stop chatter LOL. You think I'm joking, you ask any of his grandparents, cousins, aunties and uncles.
Well that's me for now as I feel the need for some ZZZZZZZ's . I got a bit tipsy last night on my Dad's home made wine.LOL

Just a quick pop in ...

To say HELLO and show you the card I made for my brothers birthday, which is today. I can put it on because I know he doesn't look at my blog. I just hope it gets to him as my nephew's card got lost in transit.

The card and stamps are SU, the ribbon and brads are from my stash. I always find it hard to make a card for my brother, so I hope he likes it.

Just a few cards ...

I've made during my week off. The Teddies are by Pollycraft designs, the Victorian lady is from Digital two for Tuesday, the fisherman is a Mo Manning and the tiger is from Free digital stamps and I can't remember where Jim is from. All are coloured using pencils and Sansador.
I've not had anytime to do any challenge cards this week. I've been busy with my DS taking walks and playing on the wii. I managed to beat him twice at bowling, much to his disgust.

Well that's me for now.
