Love ya!!

Good Afternoon Everyone, and I hope it is a nice day where you are, raining cats and dogs up hear and so dull, mind you better than snow.
I hope you are all well and for those who are not so good today for whatever reason, sending hugs and best wishes for you feeling better soon.
Thank you to all who visited me and left kind comments and thanks also to Marie-Louise and Erika about the wax paper to help release Spellbinders dies.  I duly purchased some from Joanna Sheen and it arrived yesterday, so I'm all good to go. Would also like to welcome my latest follower, Susan, great to have you visit me and I hope you like what I do.

Well, I managed to get the kitchen cleaning finished, I lest the most awkward cupboard till last, tackled it this morning, and almost wrenched my back in the process as it's a corner cupboard and the door doesn't go right back so there is hardly any space to manoeuvre properly and with short arms this all added to why it is a cupboard that doesn't get looked all that often.  Couldn't ask for hubby's help as he has pulled a muscle in his back lifting a table in his shed and is in quite a bit of pain.  Honestly, we are a pair of old crocks. Nevertheless, I feel as if I've achieved all I had planned for my time off, and even although I'm back at work tomorrow I still feel as if I've had a rest.

So on to my latest card;
I just love this Mo Manning digi image, I think she is gorgeous and I've coloured with Promarkers and used papers from LOTV, Nitwits Promises.Sentiment from Little Claire, Core-ordinations, Hessian from The Ribbon Girl, Pearls from Riverbank Revels range, Tonic flower punches, ribbon from  my box, finishing off with Star Dust.
Nobody in mind for this one, so into my box it will go and await to see who need a card.  I think this could be for a few occasions, anyway hope you like it.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges;

Kate, I just love this imagine you can just about feel that hug the teddy is getting. Glad you got your kitchen finished I have one of those cupboards but use it for the baking tins etc. so these days don't go in very often.

Here's hoping the weather is a bit better come Saturday,


Rita said...

Fabulous card Kate. I need to make a start on my spring cleaning too. I'll wait till after the kitchen upgrade is finished though, any excuse will do. Hugs Rita xx

Alison Scott said...

I have one of those cupboards. I so wish I had stuck to my guns when the kitchen was redone and stuck to straight cupboards. I have to get one of the kids to clean it now. I only put the Christmas tableware etc in it now so that I rarely need to clean it!

I love the card, hope all the backs are better tomorrow ;-)
