Unwinding at the weekend...

....Totally chilling, I really have never appreciated the weekend as much as I do now I am working every day during the week...and what a week, the kids have all been ill, I have not been sleeping and I have not had a single day off!!!

Got up early though, because my sleeping is still not quite right but then spent the whole morning chilling, spent time online then sat and watched The Devil Wears Prada with Ella, what a cracking film too, Meryl Streep is the ultimate Ice Queen in this.
This afternoon I went into town to treat myself...and came home with two books on candlemaking...for work... and some moisturiser, not even the 70% off sale in Jane Norman could tempt me!!!
Have spent this evening catching up on some cardmaking though...not made cards since Christmas and have lots of birthdays in the next few weeks so combined them with some challenges.
This card is based on this weeks sketch over at Sketch Saturday which works really well with the gorgeous Tilda stamp I watercoloured and also the Basic Grey recipe challenge which was to use 2 Patterned papers, 1 Button, 1 Ribbon and Bow and 3 Brads...I cheated slightly and used a button brad as one of my brads!!!
Also made this card which fits in with this weeks challenge over at Secret Crafter also another recipe challenge: 1,2,3...1 image, 2 papers and 3 embellishments.
and just for fun I made this card...
Off now to hit the pillows and duvet!!!
