BRrrrrrrrr..... a chilly morning



I think the best place to be today is in my craft room or doing some sewing, I may split my time between the two!
I hope you have a nice day planned and have some time to yourself.......yesterday, I went all cultural and went to visit a Manor House that I have lived near all my life lol. They had an open day so decided to go, It was built in 1620 and is still in use downstairs, it has now got Trust status and lottery funding so the upstairs is being renovated (which we got to see)
Anyway, on to my card, I came across this sentiment the other day and I am ashamed to say, it had never seen ink! This past week I have seen a few cards with caterpillars (sorry don't know who) so can't say that was totally  my idea, I bought a circle punch this week  and it was still on my desk so I thought the two went nicely together.

Pearl card stock
circles cut with punch
Sentiment is Funny bones from Riley & co,
googly eyes from stash
That's all there is to it folks lol......

I am entering this into the following challenges;

A creative Romance --------- dies or punches

Sister Act ----------- anything goes

Loves rubber stamps ------------ Must have sentiment on front (rubber by Riley &  CO)

Crafty sentiments ------------ anything goes

That's about all for today, crafty hugs for those not feeling well, thank you for your visit
Hugs Tilly x

I love how you used the circles, and remember if they're snippets you can link into the Playground - I bet the girls would love to see this!

Tilly, great card. Love the sentiment and it is so true. Hopefully not the teeth part! LOL! Circle punch, great for circle of life...I say, we come into the world bald, no teeth and you know what in our pants, and we go out the same way! Now wasn't that a pleasing thought! Send some of your cold weather our way, it's hotter than blazes here! At least it's dry, our Colorado friends are suffering terribly. That Mother Nature, when she's upset, she really lets us have it!

Hi Tilly, just found you in the Playground, and hopped over to see your cute little bug up close. What a super use of your circles, and loved the papers you used. Just joined as your newest follower, and hope you'll find time to visit me someday. Isn't the Playground just a fun place...besides using up snippets, you meet the most talented & generous people! I've met such a lot of UK folks, and I'd love to have seen your Manor House. What fun. TFS & Hugs
