Something bright and a little confession

Good morning Monday.

Still a bank holiday here in the UK but with Phoebe still hot I doubt she will be able to go to school tomorrow. Ben's has a nasty cough which causes him a lot of pain but I seriously doubt there is anything I can do :(.
Over the last few days I have been having a little tidy up of my stash (I couldn't find things I needed or wanted) and must confess I feel rather ashamed. I seem to have a lot of stamps - both rubber and digi - which I have never used. The same goes for designer paper, I have so much I could open a paper shop, well almost! The worse thing is I still buy more lol. I hope it's not just an obsession from which I suffer. So I have decided to use some of my oldies before buying anything new - wonder how long that's gonna last, already seen a few thing I absolutely NEED hehe.

Enough ramblings for now. I wanted to show you this card I made with the free image from Mo Manning which has been available on her facebook page. This is called "Wonderful Day" and she's just gorgeous. Loved colouring her with Promarkers and will enter her into this week's MO CHALLENGE "Kids and animal". It's looking so dull and dark outside I wanted to use a lot of bright colours - can't wait for spring!
