It's Monday

Morning folks....hope you are all having a fabulous Easter weekend break..that you haven't indulged in too much of the choccy stuff  and that the sun is shining where you are...I've been having a little play over the weekend with some more of the fabby goodies I got from the NEC.....I adore this sweet image from the lovely Laila and Lisa at Lili Of The Valley....bought oodles of their gorgeous images...which I'm sure will be appearing here on a regular basis and just had to stock up on some of my favourite ribbons and white check.

Background created with Hero Arts...Shadow Ink...Soft Sand
overstamped with Hero Arts Cling Dots....TH Brushed Corduroy
Image: LOTV....Best Friends Hug Time
Flowers: Prima E Line
Ribbon from The Ribbon Box
Pearls....Hobby House

And this card should be winging it's way south courtesy of Royal Mail for a very special lady.

And guess who is holding up the finishing off of the bedroom now....yes you've got it in one....little old MOI....took a trip on Saturday to look at tiles and guess what...I came home totally bamboozled....none the wiser and tile-less....blimey humungous tiles...tiny tiles...shiny and matt tiles in every colour of the rainbow and hey you can even get tiles with glitter in them...well I have enough glitter in my life thank you....I don't need to be looking at the stuff as I clean my teeth before going to bed...and don't know about you but I have become such a ditherer in my old age...can't make up my mind about anything anymore..... it's a sad day when a tile catalogue becomes your bedtime reading....may just have to close my eyes and take pot luck with a pin.
Catch up with you all later.
 Hugs Kath xxxx

    What a lovely, lovely card. Now as for the tiles, I know what you mean about being bamboozled - these days we do have too much choice, but I know I would have to get the "sparkly" ones - I'm so attracted to anything that sparkles - honestly - I really can't help myself!!!

    Anyway happy choosing with the pin!!

  20. Hi Kath

    What a gorgeous stamp ...i am going to Ally pally this week so will be having nice spend up.... Hugs

  21. Gorgeous. I can understand why you bought so many of these. They are fab images and such good value too. Marianne x

  22. This is lovely Kath. Love your colours. I only have 2 LOTV images that I bought at the SECC. And when I got home I realised that one of them said Mum - I thought it was just balloons. Maybe I should have put on my specs!

    I treated myself to a new PB stamp at Stampaholics in Perth on Saturday. It's called "poppy poem" and I think it'll be fun to use.

  23. Kath your card is gorgeous - beautiful soft muted colours and the image is so lovely - of course you know I'll be heading straight to the LOTV website now - well the image has a doggie on it, so that's my excuse.
    Hope you have sweet dreams about tiles! - of course you could always let hubby choose. Though I think it's only us women who tend to keep ikea catalogues, kitchen design brochures etc for bedtime reading.
    Lots of love my dear friend
