Hello Everyone..

Sunday early evening and just had fish n Chips for tea...very yummy today, and cooked just right.
Hope your weekend is going well..I worked.. but had a nice play in my craft room this afternoon before the tea rounds..

I have a card to share using this gorgeous image from Beccy's Place  a freebie a long time ago and have used her several times.

"Girl in a long Coat"

There she is..I paper pieced her coat and frosted up her fur trims..

She was fussy cut out and placed on this fabulous snowy paper scene which was also a freebie..

A close up of the papers and girl..who is looking very wistful..

And the side view...

I did a bit of distressing on the Kraft and the sentiment is from Kaisercraft..

Challenges to enter..

Paper Creators Craft   [All about Christmas]

Penny's paper craft   [anything goes]

Not much else to report..been a quiet weekend,plenty of chores done and looking after "My Girls"..not that they remember..bless them..

My girlfriend came home from her cruise and was thrilled to see the cats had survived my delicate care.. and not too miffed about her wind burnt..brown..dead..

Thanks so much for stopping by..and I tried Spider solitaire.. instead of backgammon..just not the same.[plus I'm useless at it]

See you tomorrow.
