140 Sleeps!

TT0710

It must be 110 years since I last entered the Theme Thursday Challenge ... I say 110 years ... it is at least that ... it could actually be longer ... I know it has been a while!

Anyways ... the theme last week was Dark,Gothic and/or Halloween! Now as you know ... I have to have all things Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that mTTa0710akes the sunshine and chases the clouds away ... with just a yard of Hobgoblin Tissue Tape and a solitary Charm Clip! Anyway Having to have all things Lord Tim of Holtz means I have an abundance of Halloween paraphernalia laying around ... so be warned ... this year I am going to get as much use out of it as I possibly can! I am even considering the inclusion of a few bats and the Scaredy Cats on my Christmas cards! That should reduce the list somewhat :0)

This was a Ranger White tag which I have spritzed with Dylusions Aubergine Ink Spray ... Yummy ... then coloured with a bit of Dusty Concord through sequin waste ... then stamped with a few cobwebs and a bit of barbed wire!

After doing all that ... I went back to link up my tag and discovered ... this was indeed last week's challenge ... What a numpty ... do you reckon I could sneak it in for this week's red and Black challenge ... Mmmmm Probably not eh?

For those of you that were in my class on Monday and were horrified that I did n't know the number of sleeps until the Timmy Fest ... TTb0710well ... rest assured I rushed home and worked it out ... it is indeed 140!

Finally ... Thank you all so much for your concern re me standing on the spinney chair to take my aerial shot yesterday ... I just wondered where you were today when I decided to tidy up ... bent over under a shelf ... oh yes ... stood up and *Bump* ... nearly cried ... pulled myself together ... then only went and did it again!!!

Laters!

Linda

I suggest you use body armour and a helmet when you tidy up - otherwise you are going to end up with something broken and I would hate for you to miss the Tim Fest!!
