CCT & my late WoJ PoM

This week has been manic so no time to be creative unfortunately. Luckily I had this Herb image already coloured in sitting on my desk and it had hearts on it so it fitted this week's CCT theme of 'hearts'. Managed to quickly knock this one up late last night (think you can tell as layout is so simple and bare!) I love the sentiment that is from WoJ too, just think it's so funny with this stamp. Coloured with distress inks and twinkling H2O's and everything else is from my stash.

I tried and tried to come up with something for the Whiff of Joy Project of the month, which was to decorate a cookie tin or container but it just wasn't happening so just left it at this!

I have used Willow with cookies, masked her then stamped the christmas tree so it is in the background. It did start out bigger but the bag I made was very small so had to cut the image down to fit. Image has been coloured with Promarkers and all I've done is cut it out with my labels nesties, stuck it to the bag then added a felt flower (Tesco's xmas decorations - garland of 12 of them for £1.50, needless to say I grabbed a few :)) and ribbon - very boring and not at all happy with it but that's all I've got for now!

Just drove hubby for his check up on his ankle and have left him there (I've had to start driving again after not having too since I passed my test over 17yrs ago . . yikes! thank goodness we have an automatic!) Off to work now for the rest of the day/evening. Hope to try and sort myself out bit better for next week.

P.S I know I promised to send my candies yesterday but haven't had the chance yet, will do them either this afternoon or tomorrow- sorry!

Beautiful card and bag Fran, I'm going to be going to Tesco later to check out those decorations they are gorgeous. I hope hubby is getting on ok and you manage to find a bit of 'me' time soon. I don't drive at all but i can imagine it was a bit scary after not driving for so many years
