doorway to a winter wonderland...

Good morning everyone how are you all?...there seems to be a lot of sniffles and colds going about atm I hope you haven't had them...I had a really quiet day yesterday, just colouring and having a little play...Phil didn't get the results of his exam yet but I will keep you posted and he seems very confident he did ok...a little bit of technology news for you, did you know we in Northern Ireland were the very last to get the digital service, how shocking is that that it took years for the whole of our small country of the UK to supply it to everyone there...they even had a little ceremony here for the final switchover and it was on tv too...not quite the celebration kinda thing I would have thought, yeah ok lets celebrate because it took so long to happen...go figure lol...I broke my mobile too, it was well on its way out though so no real sadness,so I need a new one I kinda fancy the new Galaxy so if any of you have it could you tell me what you think...or if you have a different mobile that's excellent above and beyond whats expected let me know that too...I need some recommendations fast as there are so many on the market atm aren't there...anyway now onto my card for today...have you seen these new stamp sets from Just Inklined...such fabulous value and perfect for Christmas...this scene and couple stamps are from the Holly Berry Lovers set...there's loads on the set though not just these...I coloured them with my usual distress inks and used some scraps of a double sided paper from Teresa Collins Noel collection called Noel sheet music...gorgeous isn't it...I ripped the paper and turned it back to try and make look like they were walking into an old book page...what do you think did it work?...I finished with a stamped sentiment...I didn't think it needed anything else...Im entering this for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, Squiggles stamps challenge and the A & T Emerald Faeries challenge...right its off to the shops day today, I need some put the world to rights coffee with my Dad today and a little mooch around a diy shop for draught proofing for the front doors...ooooohhhh life is one mad social whirl isn't it lol...whatever your up to today have a fabulous one and stay out of the draught's

If I don't start going forwards instead of backwards I shall never catch up but I do like to have a quick peak at your historical work and this lovely starry window with the winter scene really caught my eye, Mina! It's lovely! Hugs, Lesley
