Morning folks...with the cubbyhole stuck in demo and workshop mode and all the recent makes stacked in the "can't share yet" department I've been suffering with "what to post today" syndrome and I fear I may be losing the plot somewhat...had my Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge DT post scheduled for today when in fact it's not until next Sunday.  No ground breaking news nor anything exciting in the crafty gossip department to report...even The Furry Boy hasn't much to say for himself which makes a change...perhaps he's saving his energy for the grandkiddies arriving...crikey where do they get their endless energy from and I can guarantee The Furry Boy and His Old Mum will be completely tuckered out by the end of the day...tonight will definitely be feet up snuggling on the getting my Dancing On Ice and Upstairs Downstairs weekly fix and the Furry Boy snoring his head off catching up on some ZZZZZ's.
But wait a mo....remember the old Licquorice Allsorts Tin...well feast your eyes on what happened when I decided to give it a spruce up with a bit of "torn tissue paper" decoupage...very oh la la...tres chic and somewhat magnifique...don't you think...

You have until 4pm to enter the monthly Ribbon Girl Kit Give-away HERE...The Furry Boy will be back tomorrow to announce his winner...that is if he has recovered from running around with his fellow hooligans
