A nice surprise

Had an unexpected day off today - I say unexpected as I had no idea it was a public holiday - so I got up at 6.30 as usual left the rest of the family in bed as school doesn't start again till tomorrow (a clue there!) and set off for work. A cleaner let me in the building and was surprised when I asked if anyone else was in yet - but the library doesn't open till 12 today she said - doh!
I wasn't sure whether to be pleased to have the day off (I normally finish at 12 on a Monday) or cross that I got out of bed in the first place!

However I did have time to make this card for the new Just Magnolia challenge blog. I used my Tilda with Christmas Stockings stamp but used non-Christmassy colours when colouring the image. My backing papers were from a K&Co 12x12 pad Classic K Bailey, the stamped flourish on my circle was from a Personal Impressions set called Swirls & Flourishes and the sentiment was from Creative Cafe.
