Lil Pixie

Good morning. What a wet and miserable day we have today. I need some Autumn sunshine to cheer me up. I'm feeling very miserable today due to lack of sleep.

I did have a lovely evening when my friend Bev came over for some card making tips and we sat together and made very similar cards so it was great to sit and have a natter and craft at the same time but it ended up being a late night and then my most darling daughter in the whole wide World decided to wake up at 4.45am and not go back to sleep so I'm not too clever at functioning on about 5 hours sleep and two wonderful children to look after all day long !

Our wonderful school has decided to tag 3 TD days onto the beginning of their holiday so they are home now for a full fortnight - how spendid !!

Anyway, you don't want to hear me moaning away do you ? You want to see a card well, here it is :

The DP's are Cosmo Cricket "Honey Pie".

The image is one of the little Pixie's from CC Designs which shamefully I have never inked up before. She has been coloured with ProMarkers.

Talking about CC Designs, have you seen the sneak peaks of their new Christmas kit ? Oh my goodness, I do not know how I am going to stop myself from buying those beauties. If it wasn't for the fact I am off to the NEC in 18 sleeps time (if I ever do get any sleep), they would be winging their way over the Atlantic as we speak !!

The lace, button and cord are from my stash.

Bev said that she is going to taking a photo of her card later and putting it on her new blog ! It's looking very bare at the moment as this is the first card Bev has made ! Please hop over later this evening and take a look and leave her some nice supportive comments and if you can throw some advice in for a first timer at the same time, she would greatly appreciate it.

I wonder if I can pinch 5 minutes of shut eye while CBeebies is on ? ummmm !

See you back here tomorrow for the new challenge over at Simon Says Challenge.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you may leave.

Forever grateful,

Misery Guts ! xxxxx
