April's Diamonds and Roselee

Hi Peeps,

I'm feeling a little under the weather at the moment, I have the shivers, hot and cold and earache and feeling rather sorry for myself.  I had to drag myself into work yesterday and again this morning.  I also have to take my Mum for a hospital appointment this afternoon, so thank goodness for night nurse and day nurse.

My little Bichon has played up the last week too.  He's now 17 months old and when put to bed in the kitchen at night he has decided to start barking.  The first night he did it my son felt sorry for him and thought something outside was frightening him so he ended up on the end of my quilt.  I thought when Hubby came home at 1am in the morning from late shift he would of popped him back into the kitchen, but no, he spent the whole night comfy at the end of my bed.  Needless to say, he continued to bark when put to bed for the next 4 nights and thankfully he went to bed like a good boy last night.  I wish he wasn't so damm cute.

Anyway Peeps onto this week's challenge at Crafts and Me which is Vicky's choice and she has chosen your  favourite colours.  Well I have loads hehehe, love love lilac/purple and pinks and blues and turquoise, oh goodness...., but I could only choose one so have gone with my first choice of Lilacs/Purples.  The new images that the girls have been showcasing on the crafts and me blog have now been released in store, yayy for you guys.

Oh dear, it sounds like you are pretty miserable. I hope you feel better soon!

I like how you've just glittered the fairy's wings very lightly -- enough to seem magical rather than made of glitter.
