Butterflies, Poorliness And Peace!!!

Just one or two..........

..........simple cards to use up stash.
Top card I used a Go Kreate die for the pink layer.
Butterfly is Cuttlebug.
Border punches are Martha Stewart.

My little Doodle was rather poorly yesterday while I had her. I knew there was something wrong as she didn't want her breakfast. That is so unusual as she loves her porridge.
Then she had an upset stomach and once we had her cleaned up all she wanted to do was sit on my lap and go to sleep. She had about  twenty minutes or so and when she woke up she was burning hot so I gave her Calpol and sat back down with her while she just lay in my arms and we talked about Christmas and Santa. Half an hour later she was as right as rain but spent the rest of the day wanting cuddles.......which is just fine by me and at hometime she was back to normal. Haven't a clue what had been wrong but I was so glad she was better before I sent her home.

Today has been utterly of those rare 'whole day upstairs' days. I have cut hundreds of card blanks with no interruptions apart from Mr Manic calling me down for lunch and a quick visit to the kitchen to whip up some creamed garlic mushrooms for Mr Manic to have for his tea.
I thought this was the best job to do today as the cutting them as I need them I have been doing lately just doesn't work for me when I have so little time to spend up there..
Tomorrow I am gutting the back room, cleaning it and shifting furniture around ready for Christmas Day. I need to see if the table arrangement is going to work to fit nine of us in......if not it's back to the drawing board.

For tonight.....I am not the least bit tired as I slept ten hours straight last night.......must have needed it. So I am starting again on Bones Season Six.

Thanks for your vist.


  1. Oh poor little Ruby! I'm glad she's okay now Sheila. I've had both my DD and my little Izzy staying here all week whilst DSIL has been away on a course. Our new grandbaby is due any day and has given us a couple of false alarms this week. As a result of the mega change in my routine crafting and blog hopping has been none existant for over a week :( Looks like there won't be much for a while yet as they go home tomorrow which means I will have to dash up to Harrogate when the little monkey decides it's time to make an appearance, lol!

    Love all your pretty cards ............ how could I not when they have butterflies on, lol!
