Feeling Hot! Hot! Hot!

Good evening everyone,

I'm afraid I'm in 'headless chicken' mode at the moment - losts of rushing around but not getting very far!!  Tonight's dinner is in the oven, and Stephen's not home till later, so I thought I'd make myself a coffee, and take a few minutes to catch my breath.

I'm off across to the UK on Wednesday afternoon and I'm frantically trying to get stuff finished before I go.
Memory Box for Alex - done!
Sample Wedding Invites - done!
Christmas Card for my brother to send - done!

I think that's everything that needs to go with me.  Now I just need to do DT projects that are due in while I'm away.  Ooh, and pack of course! 
I've got quite a bit started today, but nothing finished.  Oh well, you know where to find me tomorrow!

I must confess I did get a bit distracted for a while this afternoon, with the latest Twinchie Challenge
It's Challenge #9 and the theme is ......
Hope this looks hot enough .....
It started life as a piece of white cardstock which I then added a few Distress Inks to - Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Fired Brick and a touch of Rusty Hinge.  I then stamped over the top using Onyx Black Versafine ink and a Butterfly Kisses stamp called 'Firework Frenzy'.  I added a spot of Stardust Gel pen to some of the fireworks, and used some ultrafine glitter to add a bit of sparkle.
There's actually fireworks going off as I'm typing this, well it is Bonfire Night I suppose.  We went to the display in Douglas Bay on Saturday night, and the fireworks there were spectacular.  Tonight I'm staying nice and warm indoors.

If anyone is off out to a Firework Display, stay safe and enjoy yoursleves.  If you've already been, I hope it was a good one.

Well, I must dash.  I can smell the lamb shanks cooking nicely, and I need to get my plum and apple crumble in the oven.

Hopefully I'll see you again before I go on Wednesday.  Have a nice evening

Thanks for popping by.
