And a partridge in a pear tree

Feeling very sad today after hearing that a friend and moderator on the Joanna Sheen forum had passed away yesterday at the age of 42. Such a sad loss and I know she'll be sorely missed on the forum.
We've had no kitchen joy again today so tomorrow it'a phone call to head office to try to get things moving in the right direction..........watch this space!
Had a trip to the hairdressers this morning so all those funny coloured bits at my roots have been washed away again, so at least outwardly I appear tip top lol
Today's card is a Christmas one I haven't shown yet, possibly because I wasn't awfully happy with how it turned out!

Image, sentiment and Christmas text BP are all from Pink Petticoat. Image coloured with promarkers. BP trimmed with a Martha Stewart punch. Finished with some ribbon and lace which was originally used on a long dress I made at school about 34 years ago!
