Apple of My Eye

Morning Sassy Fans,

Where does the weekend go.  Seriously you blink and you miss it.  I did manage to do an hour in the gymn on Saturday, goodness knows what's come over me and yesterday I visited my niece and the new addition to the family, baby Nikita.  She's gorgeous, so now I'm a Great Aunt!

I also had a little accident with acrylic paint, oh my word.  I only needed a little for the project so I unscrewed the lid. Biggggggg mistake.  I knocked the bottle off the table and it landed upright.  Good you may think. Notttt. It hit the floor with such speed that the contents splurted up and covered me, my sewing machine, printer, radiator and the carpet. Opps!  As i woke up early I just put on my hubbys T-shirt and my linen trousers and went to my craftroom whilst everyone was still sleeping, so my hubby's black Firetrap T-shirt now has splatters of white paint all over it. I was so lucky it didn't splatter the cards I had on the side, typical crafter more worried about my cards than OH's T-shirt. Who would of thought there was that much in a bottle, lol.  My hair still has white streaks, lol.

I have a little sneek peek for you. This is Apple of my Eye and will be available on Saturday from Funky Kits.

  13. Stunning colours & I love that ribbon. This looks like it is going to be a fun release too - just look at that hair! The way you have placed that floral centrepiece on the ribbon to make it look as if it is the flowerhead of the green leaves is masterful. Just super with that floral themed patterned paper & the way you've pikced out both the mauve & the cherry pink with the butterflies. Glad you survived the whitewashing episode.
