Birthday Blues

Woke up this morning another year older, and god did I feel it!! I feel rotten, have a nasty sore throat, my nose and head is stuffed beyond belief and every part of my body is aching (insert tears), but on a brighter note, the kids hopped on me in the bed this morning, armed with smiley faces and happy birthdays stuffing gifts and cards in my face, bliss! So that has made up for it! And I had a fantastic weekend in Tullamore and Athlone, thank you Sandie for putting me up in your home, thanks to all the girls who attend Kelly's surprise birthday crop (happy birthday kelly!!!) great shopping, company and crafting, what more could you want, happy days! Finally finished off with a chinese with Sandie and Deborah and a "geansai" load of wine, and a very hazy memory! Oopppsss

Now its back to my leaba with a cup of Lemsip and piece of terrys chocolate orange!

Thursdays Inspiration

What a morning, I just can not seem to shift this cold and the horrible headaches that are coming with it, so to help it on its way I sat down at my craft desk, in a lovely silent room, bliss (doesn't happen very often!) and worked away with my inks, I got some lovely inspiration from Jackies Blog using a gothic shaped card, one of my favorite types of architectural styles. I intend on owning one of those lovely little gothic style churchs some day and making it into a lovely home, I can dream!!!!!!!!! So in the mean time I will settle for altering gothic style cards!!! LOL! I hope you like it and thanks for looking. Mandy xx

Getting back into it

Christmas and new years have left me wiped out, had a great time, but need to get back to normal now. I finally got to my desk last night to have a play..happy days! After some inspiration, thanks to Tim Holtz's blog and youtube vids, I decided to have a messy play with my inks and distress powders, and I came up with this tag. Need more practice me thinks, but I am happy with it!
