DU2DS 1st of New Year!!

Back to it then folks, Christmas is definately over even though the snow is still on the ground but DU2DS has chosen a theme this week to lift you out of those winter blues, and I decided to really go for something bright and cheery......

So here's a bunch of flowers for you all to say thanks for being such lovely blog buddies!  And as a special pressie this image is a freebie in Christines digi shop Sketching Stamper.  She has some wonderful digi stamps and, at this time of year,  when the plastic is rolling on the floor laughing at you at the till, a digi or two can be snook past the beady eye of the bank manager and fulfill that need to expand your stash without the OH checking your shopping bag Ha Ha!

I must say I'm fortunate though, my OH is equally compulsive about buying CD's so I have no problems buying what I like. (other than the laughing plastic of course)



I wonder who's winning the in the OCD Stakes ~ either way we ain't ever going to be rich!!
Bet you never thought of His and Hers compulsions before LOL

So back to DU2DS, the theme this week, to lift you out of the post Christmas blues is BUTTONS, lots of em loverly, bright, touchy feely buttons. So dust off the button box, run your hands through the buttons a time or two, pop over to a digi store, make a cuppa and settle down to fulfill your cravin for makin!

OOps a touch of the verbals today ~ or maybe hysteria, not quite sure!

By for now
x Michelle

This really lifts the spirits after the miserable rainy day it's been Michelle. I love the stitching forming the frame and marvel at how straight it is. Those cute little buttons are a perfect match for the image too.

Great card Michelle! Love those little buttons that you placed on the image! So cute.

Wow, aren't you a tidy household, Michelle. I'm not sure which I'm most impressed with, the CD's or the craft room!! We've had a real chuckle with your post tonight as we have a his and hers compulsion too, mine is crafting, goes without saying, his is World of Warcraft, ever second of every spare minute. Still at least we occupy the same room, even if it's quiet!!
Love your card, it's so fresh and bright, perfect for a gloomy time of year.

I loved the his and hers OCD pics, you really made me laugh and crikey, as you say, you seem to be even stevens LOL! No chance of that for me :(. Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Hugs, Chris xx
