Chill Time!

It's been great to be away! A few weeks ago I was having a moan about not having enough hours in the day and not having time to myself - all I needed to do was get away! We have had great days out and great days in and had time to do everything we wanted to do! Hubby has started to practice his calligraphy and I've had time to play! We have dentist's appointments, a grandson's play to watch and a meet up with my brother over the next week as well as one or two other commitments but this has been so lovely!
So - what have I done? Some journal pages, a pile of cards, some tags and all at the same time as keeping an eye on the birds at the feeders - we have enjoyed watching two long tailed tits especially - such delicate colours!
Made this page using one of Lindsay Mason's 'Doo Lally Pip' stamps - Hopeful Harriet Feelin Good!
A couple of the freebie cards that came with my Birthday book with a few additions!! I don't know what I will use them for so haven't added sentiments yet!
I'm away to  my bed now, just pleased that the internet connection has been kind to me! It  has stopped me blogging or commenting several times this week, just as the phone calls I have made have been cut short too!
Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi Mary, your paper crafts are so original and charming. I love your choices of color and composition. You are inspiring me to stretch my imagination, and I thank you for that :) I would again like to invite you over to follow me back. I have met so many lovely craftier through blogging and I would be honored to have you follow.
Have a wonderful day.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

Good morning Chris, you sound in good form, being away has done you some good. I enjoy watching the birds as I do my ironing, (which I am just coming to the end of for today.) Your projects are great. I have still not managed to get those stamps yet. Enjoy the rest of your day.

Lovely to have you back, Chris! And what a gorgeous trio to kick us off. The journal page is so pretty - lovely, dreamy colours and I love the the framing border vine; and you've dressed up the card backgrounds beautifully again... LOVE that hare!

Oh, I finally got around to playing your paper towel game in the project for today's post - fun, and pretty - thanks for the inspiration!

Like your journal page very much and was that stamp on your wish list that finally materialised into ownership:)?
Glad you got time to create
