Time well spent?

I cannot believe where the last week has gone - talk about life passing you by.
I blinked yesterday and missed my birthday and I feel completely wiped out today and thankful for a day at home to catch up with things and re-charge a bit, although I am out later this evening.

This is not a new make but thought you may all think I'd left the country if I didn't post something!

So a quick inky make with some silhouette stamps from different companies (one or two of them were magazine freebies) and a few sprinkles of sparkly bits for added interest.

I don't feel particularly creative at the moment as there's so many other things going on but am hoping the feeling is just a passing phase as I am beginning to get annoyed with myself just sitting staring at a ridiculously tidy desk in the craftie space!

If winking work then that's exactly what I will do next week Viv, got to the stage where I prefer to forget them. But seriously belated Happy Birthday.

Beautiful intensity of colour and I always love a fairy.

'Our' boys are shining our there, just not quite the scorelines we all hoped for.
