....and relax!!!

Aaaah, bliss!  I love end of term holidays - two whole weeks of chilling out!  Chill being the operative word here - OMGosh!!  What happened to the sunshine??!!  Admittedly we haven't had it as bad as some parts of the country, but we have had some pretty huge snowflakes this morning.  However, the gale force winds and (much -needed!) rain have managed to stop it from settling!  Oh well, can't go very far in this so I shall just use my time wisely by continuing along my Copic journey! LOL!!

I've used Copic markers to colour my Tilda for this week's Midweek Magnolias theme which is Homespun Style.  This week we have asked for you to think about all those little things that make a house a home and I have used some of Donna's wonderful Country Collectionpapers from Bearly Mine Designs.  All of Donna's papers are just sooo gorgeous but this beautiful patchwork set is one of my all-time favourites and I thought of these immediately when the theme was set.  Unbeknown to me at that time, Bearly Mine Challenges themselves have the theme Patchwork this week, so I can show this card off there also! WooHoo!!  Here's the card:
Hope you like!  My lovely teamies over at Midweek Magnolias have created more sensational projects for you to have a drool over too, so if you're here, please pop over and give them a little love too because they've worked so hard to keep other crafters motivated and inspired, and it really shows in their fabulous creations.

Well that's my lot for now, just looking out of the window and wonderin' if I should saddle up the huskies and give the ol' sleigh a good dusting!!  Be back soon, hopefully it'll be a bit warmer then!  Thank you for stopping by! :o) xx
