If your weather is as grey, wet and horrible as it is here (and has been I might add since I stepped off the plane), have a look at this amazing Cyprus sunset, taken on the night before we flew home.Fabulous isn't it - and the best thing was the days were as good!!!! As with all holidays though they end far too soon and once you've been back a couple of days they just become a distant memory!
My sun tan is going the same way - LOL.
So on to other things - as mentioned the weather here has been appalling! It has finally stopped raining in the last hour but it's grey skies and heating on!
To add to my 'return home' depression, our internet decided to go on holiday too. Although we have some download speed it's worth than 'dial up' so viewing, uploading and commenting is nigh on impossible! ISP says 'it MAY improve in the next five days.....' - so much for me trying to control my high blood pressure.....
I have spent rather a long time doing this post but I really wanted to upload SOMETHING!!!! (And I had a little snooze whilst waiting for the links to work)
Here's a make to share - I had stamped this 'Cinderella' image from Kraftin Kimmie before I went away and have finished the card in the last couple of days (in between restraining myself from putting my fist through the computer......)
Image was paper pieced using Versamark Onyx Black onto lilac and white polka dot paper. Rest was coloured with promarkers and some perfect pearls dabbed on the 'jewellery' for a bit of bling! The clock was made using an embossing folder and cut out as were the clock hands. I ran some black chalk across the clock face and did the same with the hands which I attached using a black eyelet. I popped a bit of glossy accents onto the hands and matted the whole clock onto a scalloped pearlised black die cut. The background papers are 'Paris Nights'. Some lilac ribbon, a couple of purple pins, card candy(coloured with a promarker and some Diamond Stckles) finished the front and continued the colour scheme through to the inside.

Thanks for visiting - I promise to try and get round some blogs and have a look at what you've all been up to - if I can stay awake long enough whilst they upload!!
