Smiling ear to ear

Hello Everyone,

And I am....smiling from ear to ear...back home this morning...back to my soft comfortable bed..zzzzzzz

I love helping my kids out with babysitting [everyday] school holidays [everyday after work] and house sitting...mmmmm...have to think about that one...all in all the time has gone so fast and they are back tomorrow [wednesday] I just snuck out early...but will pop back for the cat and dog, feed them and play etc...

Made a card while I was there, with 14 tonnes of did all this craft get there is beyond me..
I suppose that happens when you dash home for something and take back a whole box full..everyday.

There is dear Tilda all in pink!!

Coloured with pencils, paper 'Tatty Teddy -especially for you collection, spellbinder butterfly, WOC flowers...

Going to enter her at Just Magnolia  using Janes sketch, which was a really good one.

And a few pics to share....................

                                                                         The terrible two!!

Two guilty dogs........on trial here!!

                                                                     One dead rugby ball

Evidence!!!...Zachs[g/son] rugby ball....minus the stuffing


GUILTY!!...but let off because that stuffing was so fluffy and gorgeous to use on my card.

So there we go, another day has really started, as I'm running late again, but so glad to be home..

Welcome and thank you so much to my new follower for joining me, and will catch you all tomorrow

PS...yes...I feel another steampunk coming, just a bit more dismantling to do...dont would be horrified  at the things I do......but no-one was using it ...honest...

Finally back. Checked out all the posts I've missed and have I really been gone that long or you just been posting everyday..... Feel like I'm chasing a tail I don't This Tilda card is just gorgeous Chrissy. I also LOVE the pumpkin card and your design. Thought it was a new die I hadn't seen, one clever card my friend. The Christmas cards are amazing and so beautifully created. Hope to do better posting and commenting now that some of the big events are over for awhile. Thanks for keeping up with me when I'm not around. "Love & Hugs" Carol

Hi, Chrissy. Your card is beautiful. Tilda looks lovely in pink. Love your butterfly too.

The dogs are so sweet. Funny how we know when they are guilty. Their body language tells the tale...LOL
