The longer sleep yesterday and staying in the house did a lot of good. Feeling much, much better today, although the sniffing isn;t gone yet and that will stay for some more time, I am afraid. But..... let's not complain. Yesterday I started with a teasing headache, I took an asperine and it helped marvelous to get rid of it. Looking around in the room I decided I had to hoover it badly, but before I could get to the vacuum cleaner Jan already took it out and did the job. Sweet hey? So I did the right thing......yes.....you guess it right.........nothing else!!! LOL I watched a bit tv and played on the computer and I didn;t feel bad about it.
I was able to do 2 challenges, in fact 3 of them, because in the colour challenge I combined it with the brush challenge. We had this colour pallet to work with
and no theme, that was up to us. Then also Snowy gave us a link dor some lovely brushes from deviant art, http://kaiprincess.deviantart.com/art/Flower-Brushes-New-Set-101098975and from both I made this little kit
One of these days or weeks I will offer it as a freebie, okay?
Then I did the template too, this was the template to work with
and I made this layout, with a picture I made somewhere in december, when we had a big snowfall
So I was rather happy about myself. LOL
I even started with a kit for Mardi Gras, that's the 16th of February if I am right, so I will have to hurry up with that!
This morning I received two emails from Minky, with a picture for her starchildren project and also an award. Isn;t she sweet? I am happy as a child with all the awards, even if I may receive some for a second or 3rd time, it still is a token of appreciation for the work and that's always nice.
This was the award
Oh, I should say to you to visit this blog http://nelimandel.centerblog.net/.
It's a nice lady, who makes some lovely things and some of it you can also snatch away, like some backgrounds or quickpages. If you visit and take something of her, leave a little comment.
Now are you slowly getting the Olympic fever???? It starts a bit overhere, but you know what's funny? Normally in Canada there's no problem with snow, but exactly now, when they need it most, they seem to have a bit of a shortage, LOL! They are flying in snow from other parts of the country to Vancouver! And then to know, that in parts of Europe we have lots and lots of snow, far too much in some countries!
Usually it should be the other way round.
Okay, enough rambling, time for a freebie. We make a sidestep today of the Chamber serie and I am offering you a cowmoy/western realted kit, simple title "Howdy". Hope you will like it. I should take my cup of coffee now(the 2nd) and also some paper handkerchiefs, to get rid of the "sniffing"stuff. Oh, not to worry, I am used to that, and some day it will pass away suddenly. Hopefully I will advance a bit on the Mardi Gras kit and may be even do a challenge or two. And even some ironing( there's always HOPE grin..... grin....)
Have a splendid day!
