Pastures New!

Morning everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was taken up with my grandchildren. Saturday was one early start, my grankids don't do late starts, Naomi came through at 5.45am, groan from Nana and Granda never let on, typical. We had a late night visiting friends so not feeling bright eyed and bushed tailed I can tell you (now when I felt like that I have no idea, only think when I was going on a shopping spree, ah, now there's a surprise lol!!!!). No persuading on my behave would get her to snuggle down and give Nana a couple of more much needed hours beauty sleep. Well I was knodding off by 9am which only lasted a few mins but finally fell into oblivion early afternoon and I can tell you I was tucked up smartly in bed by 9pm exhausted. Managed to get on blogland last night for a peak of what was happening out there and nearly missed Sparkles Forum winners post, made the Top 3 , whooo hoooo. Thanks girls.  Made this card for a friend of a friend for her father's retirement. Didn't know much about him but thankfully she was chuffed to bits with it, Phew!
Great start too the week, Something went wrong with the first post, had to delete and start all over again, just would not reload onto blog after removing something. I know I've missed some of the challenges out and can't remember what they were, Gawd, think I'll go back to bed and start again. Roll on February, brain might be returning to normal!!
