Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas ... PTW Sketch & DP2 Challenge #102

:-o I slept until 10:02am yesterday morning!!!!  Not quite sure what or how that happened cos normally i'm an incredibly early riser ... however, I must of needed it and I do feel better for it.

Upon my awake I :)] Mum to see how Dad was feeling.  Apparently, he fell over in the night on the way to the bathroom :( ... he was OK, 8-| just couldn't get up and had managed to wedge himself between the wardrobe and chest of drawers ... not a pretty sight ... he was :)) about it though, so it must be all good!

I did think that I'd be able to do loads of things with not having to visit the oldies but it never works that way does it? :|  I plugged the vacuum in upstairs to make a start on the chores and ... :-< ... it died!  DH did a mad dash down to Argos and purchases a new one ... its one of the cylinder ones ...#:-S ... flippin' heck I knew I was using that ... it nearly sucked the floorboards through the carpet.  The suction was that good I could hardly push it! 

I sort of multi-tasked for the rest of the day, doing a bit of baking and made a card ... I had a go at this new recipe using manky old black banana's ... Banana Creme Caramels ... will show the photos of them tomorrow.  I whipped up a batch of meringues too with the egg whites I had left over :D ... oh happy days!

So onto this weeks PTW challenge and as it is the last challenge of the month (September) there's a sketch …

  5. Hi Jilli!
    I just love your style, all the stitching and layers. So pretty. What is the brand of white paper you color on? It has such a nice tooth to it.
