Pink, Brown and White, with a touch of Kraft!

Happy Wednesday once more blogland.  Now, I'm not normally in the habit of making visitors feel down, but crying out loud, I feel sooo low today!  I have every reason in the world not to but I just do.  I hope it's nothing to do with the fact that today is my 14th Wedding Anniversary (do you get a chainsaw for that one??? LOL!!), or it could be that I'm on the brink of a new decade in my life and I've not had therapy for it yet!  Yes, tomorrow is a biggie and I feel like I'm being led to the gallows!!  Maybe it's the big 'M' kicking in???  I did wake up with wringing wet hair this morning which I thought was really weird - I wondered if Tez had  thrown a celebratory bucket of water over me before he left for work!  Another thing that it could be is the fact that I have been swimming quite a bit over tha last couple of weeks and I'm starting to get withdrawal symptoms!  I used to swim every single day because I love it so much and now when I can't go for a swim I feel down.  I went again yesterday and, just like with Chinese food, within an hour of leaving the pool, I desperately wanted to go back!

Enough, I will do some housework today and cheer myself up! LOL!  Yeah,like that's going to work!  This week over at Midweek Magnolias our theme is a Colour Combo, that being Pink, Brown and White and here is the card I made for it:
Tilda is coloured with pencils and the papers are Bearly Mine Simply Dots in pink and brown, and also a Shabby Chic paper from a digi kit.  I created my card on Karft Card so that I could also show this off in Totally Tilda's challenge blog as they have a Kraft Card theme at the moment.

Please pop over to see us at Midweek Magnolias as our fabulous DT have created some amazing pieces for you to drool over.  There's also the chance of winning a fab prize from Magnolia in Sweden if you play along with us this week - and trust me, these prizes have been magnificent!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :o) xx

  3. Oh don't.. I was like that a few weeks ago! I had to go on a course of injections to bring on the big M. The idea was to try and shrink a cyst. Thank goodness I'm back to normal again! I hated feeling like that!! I dread the big M now! and it won't be long eeeekkk!!!

  7. Anne, your Tilda is darling in p[ink, brown and white. I just love how you color; the shadows and shading make her pop of the page. I've never gotten the swing of pencils but have tons of them. Maybe it's time to give it a go. Hope you are feeling better, you've gotta be too young for the "M" thing to happen to you. :) I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and weekend.
