I was determined to get a card made today - I've had a busy week at work and at home and just couldn't catch up with myself at all. I don't think I've recovered from staying up til one in the morning watching Tim Holtz on QVC. I ordered the new distress pens and they arrived today - ooh big excitement!! haven't had a proper play yet (they're supposed to be my birthday pressie and that's not for a fortnight - but I'm sure I can have a little lend for a while!!) I treat myself to some other goodies as well - all in aid of the birthday but I think that excuse might have just run out - not that I can complain, my hubby never comments on my ever growing stash and the mysterious parcels that turn up - I think he thinks it keeps me quiet, so a small price to pay!!
I'm still on the Saturated Canary thing but today is very pretty pretty for a change. I thought I'd get a couple of Easter cards made, not that I send a lot of them but I really like the stamp so thats reason enough for me.
