S I G H !!!!!!!

Hello Everyone,

Well by my title...I am home and just crawled out of my soft,warm, cuddly bed...what a lovely sleep.
To be honest...I sleep well where ever I am....but just to crawl out with no aches and was lovely.

Have another card to share today for a challenge at Winter Wonderland   and this time a red one.

There she is....I find red and black so hard to colour with, so I forced myself to keep trying.

Coloured with pencils AND copics...background image a freebie from Bugaboo and of course Tilda.
New spellbinders Doily that looks like a snowflake, the warehouse had a few spellbinders on the rack and this was my favourite so grabbed it, and very reasonable compared to our craft shop.
Added a charm at the top of the tree....then hung another one off the ribbon, in case the first one didn't count. Bit of sparkle here and there, made that myself with clear glue and glitter brads in the flowers....and the tiny tag with the LOTV sentiment came with the papers...from the warehouse last year.

Thats it......My dog is sprawled on his couch, happy to be home, but a bit confused....not sure whether he lives here or not, and will probaly get lonely while I'm at work...but he will get over it...when my SILaw gets home 'Harry' wont want to go round there..they dont get on.[long story]...lets just say's a jealousy, control thing, and my dog wins....because we go home....but I dont like it....

Happy to work......and I will be asked a zillion times "when do they get home"..

Have a great evening, great day..and will see you tomorrow....and still chasing my tail..but getting there.
