Afternoon all!

Hope you are all well on this very sunny Sunday ~ well it is here in Essex anyway!
Feeling a little brighter today, maybe it's the weather or just that my back didn't get me up at a ridiculous time lol! So I will not harp on about my little nuisance but what about the Soaps at the mo?? Well Eastenders has gone tooooo far with the baby story line, even tho' the actors have been brilliant. Corrie is just fab, but couldn't you just kill Tracey and Kevin at the mo lol! and poor Lisa in Emmerdale :o(. Yep I'm a right Soap addict hehehe and I also love Dancing on Ice and it's back tonight woohooo! I think Torvil and Dean are just magical and such lovely peeps too.

So enough about T.V and onto my little card. This is a very old stamp from Sarah Kay and I think she is urber cute and cause it's sunny I'm thinking of summer ( I know, it's still along way off lol! ). I have used some DCWV  "The Cafe Mediterranean" papers and a big bow! Very simples again :o)

This sweetie is going into the following Challenges :-
Truly Scrumptious # 48 ~ Fab Sketch & Dreaming of Summer!
Fab'n'Funky # 54 ~ Anything Goes

Hiya Vicky,

Glad your back is a little better today hon :o)

Just like you I too am a complete soap junkie and caught up with sky+ today. Poor Lisa, why didn't she tell Zack?? If only Eastenders had written the story without the baby swap part!! And yes, completely want to hit Tracey and Kevin, lol!! Can't wait for Dancing on Ice either ;o)

Loving your card today hon, it's sunny here in Kent today and making me think about spring / summer too. And so easy to colour in daylight lol! Your card if fab and funky and bright and an adorable stamp, love it :o)

Hi Vicky - it was so nice to see the sun here in Bedfordshire too today it makes so much difference to how you feel and also it is not getting dark quite so early now. Love your card - roll on the summer - and the lush ribbon you have used.

Looking forward to Dancing on Ice tonight - there was nothing to watch on TV last night now Strictly and X Factor finished!

Take Care.
Hugs Sarahxx

Jules said...

Hi Vicky

So pleased to hear that you had a better night and that you feel a bit brighter today. Sounds like you are now on the road to recovery .. .. just don't overdo it or you will be back to square one .. .. though I am sure you don't need me to tell you that.

Gorgeous card with bright and beautiful colours. Love it!!

Not into any of the soaps you have mentioned apart from Corrie .. .. but might tune into the dancing tonight.

I am useless on ice and never let go of the side of the rink!!! Waste of money paying for me to get in so I don't go anymore LOL!!!

Enjoy the rest of Sunday.

Love Jules xx

Hi Vicky. Good to hear you're a bit brighter. I'm loving your gorgeous, summery card - very cheery and obviously reflects your mood!! Can't wait til the weather's like that again!! I don't watch soaps anymore - they all got really boring a while ago and I stopped watching them and I've never got back into it again. But bring on Dancing on Ice - yay!!! (Something else for us to comment on to one another!!) Hugs, Marie xx
