LAZY AFTERNOON.............!!

Afternoon all!

Hope all are well!, not feeling to chippa today, few aches and pains so I hope I'm not coming down with something nasty :o( I'm very rarely ill, I make a BAD patient and I HATE not being at work!, how sad am I!!
Well enough moaning about my aches and pains, this afternoons card is a gorgeous stamp from Lili of The Valley. This little chap is fabulous to colour and brilliant for all times of the year. I have used some gorgeous papers from Pinkpaislee and used the fab sketch from Friday Sketchers.

This cutie is going into the following Challenges :-
Friday Sketchers # 123 ~ Fab Sketch
Lili of the Valley # 68 ~ Autumn
A Pocket full of Posies # 8 ~ Autumn Leaves
Paper Sundaes # 39 ~ Change of Seasons

Lazy Afternoon ~ Lili of the Valley

Hi Vicky

Stunning creation .. .. I love it!!

Gorgeous papers and layout and the leaves are fantastic.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling too good. Hopefully it will be a quick 24 hour thing and you will be back fighting fit tomorrow.

Not too bothered about Strictly .. .. it is usually on in the background but I am not an avid follower .. .. but X-Factor. It seemed very different this year - they have really gone to town on the effects. A few "dodgy" ones but lots of talent there.

Have a good evening.

Love Jules xx

Strictly: not fair Goldie went, he was good..
X Factor: not fair FYD went, when the odd Katie shouold have gone (my opinion only). I like Matt, Tracy and Aiden too.

I had a great day at PS and did manage with my soar leg, got those two flower punches you told me about and some lovely goodies!
