Best Mates..

Well folks...would you believe we have had sleet here today!! What a shock to the system that was I tell you....anyway I was having withdrawal symptons as I never made a card yesterday as I was busy getting stuck into the housework...I did that much my back was in felt better after a glass of wine..or two! I made this card earlier and just added the finishing touches and I am off to make the tea...since I am off I thought I would make sicilian pasta...jazzed up version of pasta yummy and haven't made it for a while and hubby will think he is in the wrong house when he comes home from work as I normally buy stuff already made and I just need to fire in the oven..I don't do home cooking very often only because I work and I don't want to stand all day in the kitchen...not my idea of fun...would rather have fun making cards but anyway I am cooking shortly!! For my card today I have used a random sheet of paper that was in my stash from Belle boulevard and the stamp is from Mo Manning and I think it's called Psss - the lovely Linds sent me that a couple of months back..isn't she a sweetie and I love it!! I coloured the image with promarkers and then did some additional shading with waterpencils and added glitter...will be buying more promarkers at the Hobbycrafts show...2 sleeps to go...woo hoo!! I have entered the following challenges.

Fiona, I is not fun to come home from work and start cooking a meal for the night. I don't enjoy that either. Your crd this week is super cute. I love Mo's images anyway, and this is a real fun one. You colored it up darling!! Great take on the sketch!

Hi Fiona, great card, love your image and your design papers go just so well together. I know the feeling about cooking. I love cooking but I get sick of thinking what to have for dinner and when I ask the family its you decide!!!&&&*** One of these days I'm going to say nothing.
Take care and thanks so much for joining us again this week at SSW and good luck.

Super fun card, your colouring is just great! Hope hubby liked and appreciated the dinner! I know I don't like cooking on days I work--when we get home we want to just sit and eat, not slave over a stove!
