Something Shiny!


Evening All.

I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas, if you celebrate it.

I usually find the time between Christmas and New Year a little odd, a bit like waiting for the next course of a meal to come from the kitchen. It's not been so bad this year. Perhaps because Very Understanding Hubby has returned to work... our daily routine is back to normal already.


Every year, Very Understanding Hubby asks me what I would like for Christmas. With the exception of last year, when I asked for, (and got) Prisma Pencils, I invariably say 'Something Shiny', which must be annoyingly vague, but is typically Fluffie.

My face must have been an absolute picture on Christmas morning, when, alongside the carnage of a choklit fuelled, hyper excited, toddler/ present frenzy, I unwrapped a shoe box, which appeared to be filled with various items of Very Understanding Hubby's clothing. Luckily, clean. Which is more than can be said for the language going through my pretty little head! After discarding several items over my shoulder, and being knocked sideways by a Sweet Cheeks Tornado, I found a small box, containing my Something Shiny! After three... Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! :)

Happy Christmas Fluffie.
Glad you do that "waiting" in the middle, it is odd isn't it?
I still have hubby off, but Daughter and Son have only had a couple of days off, so It is odd. I have been out more this year than last (and don't like that!!)
Was out yesterday (drinking in the day!!) Then in today, out tomorrow at a party (Yak) and then in Friday, and yes you guessed it out all day New Years Eve (Yak again!)
Oh well after that I can get back to crafting and enjoying myself.LoL
Have a Great NY speak soon. Card is lovely, have seen this image b4 it's lovely. Debbiexx

I really, really love this, Faye. The image is fab (what I'd give for those legs!!)as is the doodled border. I'm really pleased you got your "something shiny" - sounds like a lovely surprise. Not back to normal here till after New Year, when I'll have to have my jaws wired to compensate for the amount I've eaten over the last few days!! Sending big hugs xx

C'mon...spill the beans! What was it you tease you! x

Jilli said...

Ok, so what was the something shiny? I presume it wasn't a brass button that you're so thrilled about, unless buttons are your thing! Glad you had a good Christmas. I finally got a Christmas tree to fit my room ... yesterday out the sale LOL ... so perhaps next year I might actually put one up!

Anyway, you've made a stunning card, love your colour palette, the string and hearts look really effective, perfect colouring or a gorgeous image! Love those doodles too ... well jell!

Hugs Jillix

Is it a bicycle bell while he is saving up for the bike for your
27th birthday present next year?

I know the answer but my lips are sealed under my NVQ in medicine confidentiality clause wot I took!
