Such a pretty card Coops, love the blue patterned paper! It reminds me of Spode pottery which l adore.

I love my bed too but it has to be military procession here otherwise kids miss their school bus. Hubby loves reading, he is a James Patterson addict and can never put it down once he starts one!

Hope you get motivated and aren't late for school.

Take care xx

Hi hon....

Another Gor-Juss card - literally! Methinks you're going to have to do a tutorial for the cloud backgrounds that you're doing just lately... they are FAB!

I know what you mean about getting up in the morning, I used to be like that, but now can't sleep passed around 7 am, even though I don't have anywhere to go! LOL
