A bit of this and that.....and fabbie news !!!

Morning folks.....and what is the weather going to do today....don't know about where you are but it's been positively arctic up here in the top right hand corner of the country....I am seriously thinking about looking out my thermal vest and for our doggie strolls...the cosy gloves..and just when you least expect it the sun decides to put his hat on and all the layers have to come off again...is it summer...autumn or winter....who knows.
I have some faberoonie news to share with you all......I did promise myself some time ago that I wouldn't take on any more Design Team work....but my willpower has just flown out of the window.....sometimes an invitation comes along that you wouldn't turn down in the month of Sundays.....well not if you are a ribbon and button fanatic like me...the lovely Andrea and Mary have asked me to join their design team....I am going to be a RIBBON GIRL.....and I like the "GIRL" bit.

and without any hesitation whatsoever the answer was YES YES YES....well would you have been able to resist the chance to play with lots of gorgeousness....I thought not...so I rest my case and remember it is a GIRL'S prerogative to change her mind once in a while. Click on the logo to pop over to the Ribbon Girl online shop for a browse and I dare YOU to resist temptation.
What's on my "to do list" this week.....would you believe that the cubbyhole is in Christmas mode.....lots of ideas whirling around in my head and I am off to play with some yummy goodies which crash landed in the cubbyhole last week.

I have a sneaky feeling this is going to be my favourite Hero Arts Christmas stamp this year

 a little sneaky peek of my DT card for tomorrow's challenge over at Get Funky

But it's time to brave whatever the weather decides to throw at us today and set off for our stroll.....me all wrapped up cosy and warm and The Budster....well he already has all the insulation he needs...catch up with you all bright and early tomorrow for another nosey around WOYWW and a brand new challenge over at Get Funky
Hugs Kath xxx

Good Morning Kath & LOVELY Buddy
Congratulations on becoming a Ribbon Girl Kath, am looking forward to seeing your scrummy creations. As for the weather here in York the sun is shining at the moment although there is that chilly nip in the air now. Hubby & I took Meg out for a run earlier on, the sun was shining but there was a mist rising from the wood floor. Quite spooky really, you felt as thoguh a b
Beast or Zombie was waiting behind a tree to grab you as you went past. Have a good day - hugs and tickles behind the ears - Meg & Denise
