Hooray For A Days Off!


How lovely to have a day off & it's been absolutely pouring with rain all day so I'm glad I haven't had to bike backwards & forwards to work.  This cold, wet, dreary weather has been making me feel a bit miserable lately so I thought I'd cheer myself up with a bit of retail therapy lol & I bought a couple of things from the Fruit Pixie including this stamp plate which was half price & I thought would be great for Christmas cards.  I also caught a bit of Create & Craft & they had Little Claire Designs demoing & I rather like the RWAV (room with a view) Beach Huts stamp set so might have to treat myself to that too :o).

I made a couple of New Home cards as well today & I've been wanting to use these "Where the Heart is" digi papers & elements for ages, I love these papers by Zoe Pearn (one of my fav designers)  from the Sweet Shoppe.  I did a bit of stitching, inking & added brads, flowers & gem.  Sorry about the rubbish photo but I usually take them outside but as I said no chance of that today with the rain.

The challenges:
Simply Create - It's Bright in Here
Res-Q - Something That Makes You Happy (my home)
Totally Papercrafts - Do It With Digi's

Both are so pretty Tracey, I like the muted color palette. Nothing like a bit of retail therapy to brighten the mood. I hope your weather clears up soon.
