Happy Thursday !!!

Are we just having the most wonderful weather just now !!!! WOOO HOOO I am loving it !!! My flu/cold is FINALLY away (cannot tell you how glad I am about that).  It is the final working day of the week before we have the first of two holidays weekends !!!! For the next two weeks I only have to work a TWO day week !!!!! Certainly not complaining about that ....... AND I am in another phase I seem to be going through these days !!!!

I am so loving I cannot tell you how much all this mixed media/altering and collage that seems to be around just now.   I just wish I could achieve the results I see some very talented people achieving .... perhaps if I keep practising ..... I just find it so inspiriting at the moment.

Anyhoo here is my first attempt at my ALTERNATIVE card making as I call it ... away from cuties at the moment.   I am actually really really pleased with the result. 

OK I just realised the time and I need to get dressed and go to work !!!! BAH HUMBUG !!!


Hugs and Love
Junie xxxx

Our weather has been cool and rainy. The other night we had severe thunder storms so KT & I hunkered down and slept in our basement. Hubby works night shift so he was at work at UPS and he said they even had to shut down the ramps. Whew! I dislike tornado weather! I LOVE this card and all the yummies you used on it - it is just so gorgeous!
