Oh what to do with a fabulous crate - Friday Sketchers 111 + Stampin for the Weekend 43 - Recipe

Good morning everyone, I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned, my wonderful Phil had a good birthday yesterday, I bought him more Jeremy Clarkson book (mainly because I love to see him chuckling when he reads them lol), he got money and other gifts and some amazing gifts from the people at work including the biggest bottle of champagne I have seen, of course while everyone was looking at it I was wondering what I could do with the fab crate it came in...we have the pleasure of taking our Daughter out for her lunch today (isn't that good of her lol) and I think we are going out for a family meal tonight if we can get everyone organised, so all in all not a bad day planned...my card for today is for Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT and Nikki has a really brilliant weekend special on this weekend too...but dont buy them all as I have a couple of paper packs I have my eye on

everything on my card except the sentiment charm is from Bunny Zoe's, I used this fantastic Mermaid from CC Designs Sweet November range I have been dying to have a go at colouring her isnt she amazing and I teamed her up with the stunning papers from the Kaisercraft Utopia paper pad, I love the incredible colours in this pad don't you...I added some punched flowers from the paper and the purple buttons are from the Ladies Pack button bag , Nikki has loads of buttons in now they are fantastic colour mixes too...I finished with a zip charm...I used the Friday Sketchers sketch and followed the Stampin for the weekend recipe too...I hope you like it and have a brilliant weekend
