Just Wishing You


Gee I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted - took H to see 'The Muppet Movie' last Thursday, which is good and he went back to school on Monday, although he has an inset day on Friday. My OH has been off all this week doing jobs !!, before he starts his new job next Monday. I did Easy Aqua on Monday to ease myself back into gentle exercise - came home and went to sleep for over an hour !!, but felt really great afterwards, so will be doing it again next week.

I started this card on Sunday and only got round to finishing it today - the image is unfortunatley not mine, but i would love to have it, as it goes so well with a star theme, the papers are Basic Grey - 'Nordic Holiday' and with the plainer red i embossed it with my new Sizzix folder 'Stars and Swirls Set' (which i love), the stars are cut using Spellbinder / Nestie Stars set (i've put glossy accents on the red stars), punched edge is a Woodware punch and there is 'Glitter Dust' on the hat.
