Birthday Candle Birdbrain

Afternoon all,

How have we all beeen? Okay I hope and not picking up any of the nasty bugs around at the moment.

It's week 2 of my GDT, so it's time for the weekly sketch over at From the Heart Stamps. The twist is to do a birthday card so I just had to use this little fella Birthday Candle Birdbrain digi stamp. I also thought it was about time that I got my new Chameleon pens out for a test drive.This is my first attempt, so I was quite pleased.  

So why not pop over and join in with us. Get any of your From the Heart Stamps out and have some fun. They suit anyone really. I love them.

I don't know why it took me so long to play with my pens. Is it common for you to buy a considerable purchase then take a while to use it? 
It's as though I was a bit scared to use them, silly really. The tutorials were really short but really helpful. I have the time but not the energy to sit for ages to learn how to use something.


I had a lovely couple of hours out with Shannen on Friday. We took a parcel back to Asda, little nosey in B&M, got some cushions and a dew bits and pieces followed by a cuppa and a yummy bowl of soup out. So I was quite relaxed if a little tired. 
I got home to be shown by my hubby that a few tiles were coming loose in the shower which revealed a leak.  Now I have a huge hole and over 12 large tiles removed and a de-humidifier drying it out. GREAT.... Hubby can fix it but no shower for us for abit. I had a bath at Shannen's flat on Saturday but she is up a flight of stairs so I can't go there much. Such is life eh!!!

Thanks for popping by today. Welcome to another new follower Lorraine, thanks for following me.

Hugs Debs x
