Yo Ho Ho!

Good morning all. Friday once again, where has the week gone!

Yesterday was one of those days...we started with a power cut when the builders a couple of streets away clipped the mains cable. This meant there were house alarms going off all over the place for about half an hour just when I was trying to catch an extra hour in bed after a disturbed night. Luckily it was only off a couple of hours or so but no sooner had the electric come on then the internet decided to go off!
Looks like we've missed the snow again but it was really cold and a very hard frost last night. Lots of washing and housework today before I can play...I'm hoping Mr Postie is going to call by with some over due parcels, in which case I may forgo the housework!!

Popping over to see Erika at Snappy Crafts to share a golden oldie today.

This is the card I made for my youngest nephew in 2008...Paper Nation decoupage and backing papers, from a huge set off QVC (whenever did I think I'd use it all) which included rubber stamps too! The stamps were wooden backed though and will be turned into ATB's in a craft room near here soon! Embossing folder from Cuttlebug put through my trusty purple Wizard...which is still going strong though I haven't used it for a while.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you're up to.
