Hello Everyone,

Things have been so holidays in NZ at the moment....and I'm redundant. Mum and Dad have been watching the boys this last week,and I'm sooo not used to the freedom.
Even my crafting is I changed my room around.Then, I  didn't like it, so put it all back.
My back is still quite sore, but not as sore as it was, and thank you all for the well wishes, I'm sure that did some good.My son bought me a wheat pack....oooo....that is good. I shove it down my trousers at home, onto my lower back, keeps my bum warm

Have a card to show you, a purple one, which started off pink, then I found the ribbon, and the rest is history...

There she is. Tilda is sitting on a stool, but the flowers cover one side and the wee dog on the other.
Now I'm not sure if the dogs name is 'Kiki' or that is the artist, but I do know I picked it up from 'Tiddlywinks' on the net...there is no link, as it went forever, and I ran out of room.
Coloured with pencils, papers are Prima 'Sparkling Spring Collection',
The flowers look like Prima, but they are packs of 30 from Rosies studio.$4.99.Butterfly a spellbinders die, and the sentiment is a clear set, had for ages.

The photo is lot darker with the purple than it really is, thanks to winter rain,sleat, and wind,
but it's not too bad.

Well my little blogger buddies, that's it, it is 6.30pm on Friday night, time for 'Friends' another re-run,
12.. I think we are up to, but still watch a laugh...Prawn cutlets for tea, with 3 dipping sauces....yum yum.

Thank you so much to two new followers, lovely to have you here, and thank you to every one of you for your lovely comments.

I'm going to enter this card at Magnolia lovers   'Anything goes'

Chissy this is just darling. I have this dog in my digi stamps too and would have never thought to put these two together. I think he was a freebie at one time. This is just as sweet as it can be. Super job!
