Gotta Catch Up....

Answers on a postcard please if anyone knows where this week has gone! We've been back from holiday for a week now and I've just about caught up with the washing - the ironing's a treat that I've saved for tomorrow (though in 25 minutes it will be tomorrow) The fridge has been re-stocked, the cats got a new collar, and we've just celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary :-) I'm sure there's something Freudian about me putting the cats collar before our wedding anniversary lol.
Anyway the challenge this week at Stampotique has been set by the lovely Magda and she wants us to use a newspaper or magazine in our creation. I had to raid my daughters 'Hello' collection, but here's mine.

This is as far as I got before 
I went away, the background is a mixture of gesso, alcohol inks and PanPastels. I've also stamped and embossed Raindrops and Rain Text
For you dedicated followers of fashion Hazel (Rain) is wearing a Victoria Beckham number from 2012, and her wellies and umbrella are Guchi no less! Maybe I should dress myself from the pages of Hello magazine ( not the bikini pages - that would make your eyes bleed)
My dancing kittie from Kitten Sitting is wearing prisma pencils :-)
By the way have you seen David Beckham in the new Sky ads, I know some people like him in his designer boxers, but he looks mighty fine when he's suited and booted!
So if you haven't already, please join in with our challenge and dig out the newspaper and magazines.
I've just checked the time and it is now tomorrow, so it's off to bed for me to dream about the ironing and some football game that's on later... :-)
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks very much for looking x
