New Hat

Good evening folks, well thats another weekend been and gone. Seemed to have flown by, even with the extra hour. Hope you've all had a good one. We've spent a lot of it in carpet  and DIY shops.

We're decided to decorate our hallway and stairs as our naughty cats have ripped off most of the wallpaper. Our son Kyle is going to plaster it us, so the race is on to get it painted before the new carpet comes in a fortnight. I hate painting! :o(  And why is it when you are decorating one room, does the whole house become a tip?

Anyhoo! enough twaddle from me.

I've made this one following a gorgeous sketch over at Lili of the Valley and I'm entering it into their challenge.
Also entering it into Dream Valley Challenge anything goes
The Squirrel and the Fox hats and flowers

I used: LOTV image

Spellbinder dies
Whimsey stamps sentiment
Ribbon, scrim, flowers, brad & gems from stash

I'm off to have a good old mooch around blogland whilst watching X-factor & Downton Abbey. Ooh! I love Sunday night telly.
