You bring the ice cream........

This is what I feel like doing after the whirlwind of the blog party - slumping in a chair with a tub of Ben and Jerry's. The stamp is by My Favourite Things, coloured with ProMarkers. Papers are by Papermania. I paper-pieced the 'wallpaper' in the spotty pattern. The white flowers were coloured with ProMarkers

ProMarkers used:
Amethyst, lilac, lavender, cool aqua, duck egg, agean, blush and cool grey 1

After staggering down to the Post Office today with what seemed like a mountain of parcels, I tried to start getting ready for CHA, I fly out on Thursday. Of course, I was diverted by the arrival of a wonderful new toy that Letraset sent me to try....... more of that tomorrow. I hauled a huge suitcase down from the attic - well, who knows what temptation awaits me over there. I don't know how to travel light, so will probably be hurling 'just in case' stuff in there right up to the moment I leave for the airport.
See you tomorrow
