A little Elfie....


Morning Lovely Blogging Buddies....

I had some happy post on Tuesday... my order from CC Designs arrived and this is one of the little stamps that I just couldn't wait to play with!  Meet 'Elfie'!  Isn't she just (one of) THE cutest little elves??  (the others may be listening!!)

Now I blame my lovely blogging pal Faye for my spending on these little Pollycraft images... (that's what I tell my OH!).. as she always does such a magnificent job colouring them and bringing them to life... they just HAVE to be bought and coloured by me too!

Today I was supposed to be meeting a lovely friend of mine for lunch, but she's just had to cry off as she's full of cold (get well soon hon) - so I just MAY go colour some more images!  Well, I do need my legs and knees to recover from yesterday...  it was OH's day off, so we decided to go for a walk in Knaresborough... and it was MY idea.. yes (MINE) to climb up to the castle from the river!  Check out the jubilant pic below!!

(and this is the view we were treated to!)

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
