Happy Thursday

Hi there,

It's not been a bad day so far, considering I'm suffering with a cold.  I must admit I did go back to bed for a while this morning.  Got Stephen off to work, had my echinacea, then I grabbed my laptop and spent most of the morning checking emails, reading blogs, FB and Pinterest.  Well I need to keep up with what's going on!

Oooh!  And look what my Postie brought me .......
the full set of Seasonal Distress stains - oooh!  My prize from being one of the winners with my December tag -  12 Tags of 2012.
And .......
a lovely little parcel from AFTH.  But what's inside ............?

THESE!!! .......
....... the first of my new Timmie stamps - whoo hoo!  They'll have to wait though,  I really need to get these Wedding invites finished.

I have squeezed in a couple of blog challenges this week.  Here's my Less is More entry .......

It's Week 103 and it's a THEME week, all to do with

My card is very CAS (lots of white space).  I've used the Star Gazing stamp from Lavinia, added a moon using a mask and some Distress ink, and the 'Friends forever' sentiment which is from a PB clear set. Mat the whole thing onto some black cardstock and Voila! A touch of fine glitter on their wings adds a little bit of  sparkle.  Well, you can't have fairies without 'fairy' dust can you?!

It's my son's birthday today - he's 23!  Happy Birthday Chris.  (January's an expensive month for us!)
Here's his birthday card .....
(full details and a closer look can be found on the Creative Studios DT Blog)

We're off out again this evening.  We're finally going to Tanroagan - I've only been waiting ever since we came to the island (2 years in May!) to try this restaurant.  Apparently, it's one of the best places to eat on the Isle of Man.  I'll let you know.  I love seafood!.   I just hope my cold doesn't get any worse or I won't be able to taste anything, which would be a shame as there's lobster on the menu!

Enjoy the rest of your day.  Thanks for spending time with me.

Cheerio for now

  9. Hi Linda,

    I've had a fun visit catching up on your week! Happy Belated Birthdays to Lauren and Chris. Both cards are amazing!! It sounds like you had a really fun weekend with them - great photo!! I keep saying "enjoy your day" 'cause don't they just wheeze by?! Wheeze by? LOL! I must have been thinking about your cold, which I hope is better.

    I finally got a chance to show Mister where you are on the IOM. He is a HUGE fan of the Big Race, as you can imagine with his love of motorcycles. It is amazing to watch the videos with the people sitting or standing right THERE practically ON the road! Gives me the willies!

    Take care! Darnell
