Sorry for what I said.....

Happy Friday everyone. Hope that the weekend has some good things in store for you even if you are staying in like we are...again!! Although things are soon to be relaxed some more I have a feeling that we will still err on the side of caution and stay close to home.

Before that though I am sharing a card to inspire you to join us at

I used a wonderful image from our sponsor Jan's Digis Espresso Yourself set and coloured it with Pro/Flexmarkers to compliment the paper.

The message is one that could be used quite often in my house before I get my first caffeine if!!

So, that is me for today, I apologise for my lack of posts and visits but I have been dogged with ill health of late. I have now managed a full working week though so things are on the up again...I don't "do" ill!!

Bye for now xx

I'm a cup of tea person myself, coffee is for after dinner, but I can appreciate your card none the less. The DP is the perfect accompaniment to the take away coffee image and I can see that the sentiment would work for many people!
Sorry to hear you've not been well Sarah but pleased that you are feeling much better. :)

Love the image and the paper used and your colouring of that coffee cup is perfect.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Sarah, sorry I haven't been around much. We had lighting strike right in the middle of our garden and it fried a number of things. We have spent the whole week tried to fix what we could, replacing what we couldn't and getting contractors to fix other things that are beyond our capability like our pool pump and a couple of other major things. I love your card. I think I should get this stamp and carry it around with me :-) You got just the perfect background paper for this image. Love it. Yes, we are also erring on the side of caution and staying to close to home. To be honest with you, having to get all these contractors come in is making me feel very stressed, but it needs to be done.
Take care and stay safe and healthy.
