Papertake Weekly ~ Sketch #28

Brrr how cold is it outside today?! It bloomin' miserable here ... we had planned to feed the ducks with Rylee today, but rain stopped play so we did a spot of Christmas shopping instead LOL! Shopping 3 times this week already ... ok so yesterday morning's grocery shopping doesn't count. But the 3 hours i spent shopping a TabbyCrafts surely must do!!! My gorgeous friend Paula wanted to pay me for the cards that i had made for her to send the hospital staff after her long stay in hospital. Well, i suggested that if she wanted to pay me then perhaps she could go to the TabbyCrafts store and choose something from there for me. Between the 2 of them, Paula and Tab decided that an e-voucher redeemable at TabbyCrafts would be the best thing cos neither of them wanted to send me stuff as a surprise. The first i knew about it was when i got a cryptic text message from Tab yesterday morning, demanding i look at my email there and then ... I was in Morrison's LOL! I did however manage to check my inbox at the Outlaws when we called round for a cuppa on the way home. I was thrilled!!!! Well, can i just say i'm not joking when i say it took 3 hours to make my final decision .... that flippin' basket was filled and emptied more times than you can imagine!!! So now i sit here patiently awaiting my huge parcel {LOL} to be delivered by Juggernaut from TabbyCrafts ... i personally think Tab should bring it herself ... she only lives up the road .... ok up the road, round the corner and a bit further LOL! So how happy am i gonna be this weekend with new stash to play with and its my 23rd Wedding Anniversary on Sunday {i'd be out now if i'd killed him}!
Anyway, enough waffle and on to another fantabulous sketch for Papertake Weekly and this week the challenge is sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage ...
