Enjoy the moments that make you HAPPY!

Happy Monday .... and welcome to March!

Busy week this week ..... I'm off on my first trip across to the UK on Thursday (whoo hoo!!!) so I'm trying to get everything organised and done before I leave.

Did I mention it's my birthday this week ...... 35 this year! (oops ..... I may have got those numbers a little mixed up ..... but who's counting anyway!)  Celebrations got underway at the weekend and will be continuing all week ..... seeing as I won't be at home on the actual day.  Well, I will be but not for long..... we fly first thing!  So to make sure the whole family can join in the fun we're doing things a little early.

Speaking of early ..... I know it's only Monday but, here's this weeks offering for the latest Less is More Challenge (jobs in the old craft room are getting done first this week!)

It's Week 213 and the theme is .....
This Makes Me Happy

Lots of things make me happy ...... my beautiful grandson, good weather, good food, nice wine and most importantly my family and friends. Put them all together and I couldn't wish for a better way to spend the day ....... which is where the inspiration came from for this .......

A lovely family Sunday lunch, with a nice bottle of red (cheers!) followed by the football. Something else that makes me happy .... seeing Chelsea win the match! ..... a nice piece of silverware for the trophy cabinet!

I've said I have a busy week so quick and easy and CAS is the way to go.

I've had this Penny Black stamp (cheers! 40-219) for ages, but I think it's the first time it's seen an ink pad.
It's simply stamped in black, a touch of colour added using some Distress inks (had to get my favourite colour of the moment on there somewhere ..... cracked pistachio!!)

A thin layer of Glossy accents over the glasses .......

And a sentiment on the bottom ........ and jobs done!

I couldn't resist splattering a few ink spots here and there ..... I hope I've left enough white space!

Well, that's me done for today in the old craft room ...... the ironing basket is calling me I'm afraid (oh joy!) 

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time
