Welcome Sunday!

Yesterday I got up at the working time and did stuff. Not, you understand because I wanted to, but I was trying to clear the 'stuff' so that I could have today to myself. I know, triumph of hope over experience, but here I am. Ok, I'm here; the kitchen is a wreck from last night's supper and this morning's breakfast, I am still in PJs, my bed is unmade and there isn't even a load of washing on yet. But hey, I've made a couple cards and that makes the day a good one!
I've had an unsolicited gift recently and wanted to show you these stamps from Kay. She's a WOYWWer and her blog is called Toodles and Binks - visit her, the inspiration and realism are a tonic!
There's a full set of them called Playtime 1 (which bodes well for a 2, huh!) and you can go see them at Stamp Galaxy, Kay's shop. I can't do them huge justice like Kay can, but I can use them with love huh! On the first card I used an old dinner money envelope and some dictionary pages and the lace - all of which came from Cath in Cyprus as a haul of lovely vintagey stuff that she felt I needed. I did, of course! Thank you Kay and Cath, you've made my Sunday morning one of fun. Now, I have to get a wiggle on, another chore to complete before the day is out - attend to the sweet in-laws for a roast and birthday cake type lunch. Oh how I love my extended family!
