a touch of summer-Friday Sketchers #138+Stampin' for the weekend #2+Cute Card Thursday Recipe 1,2,3

Good morning everyone I hope you are all well and happy, are you up to anything exciting this weekend, my Sister and my Niece and Nephew are here from Belfast for the weekend and we are going shopping and to the cinema for my Birthday treat and I'm going craft shopping today and we have a big family lunch planned for Sunday so sounds like a good weekend to me what do you think...my card today is a real touch of Summer for the Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT, isn't this image just so glam shes from the new Wags & Whiskers release as is called Pin Up August and I coloured her with Distress inks and paper pieced her swimsuit and headband, I had planned to do her really glitzy in gold then I saw these amazing papers from the new My Minds Eye release, this paper pad is called Fine & Dandy-Tickled Pink don't you think those colours just scream summer, I finished my card with fantastic flowers from Prima, three punched butterflies using a Martha Stewart punch and a lush red satin ribbon and knot...the sketch is from Friday Sketchers and I'm entering this for the Cute Card Thursday 123 recipe challenge (I image, 2 flowers, three butterflies) and the Stampin' for the weekend Getting warmed up challenge too....I hope you have something lovely planned but whatever your up too have a brilliant day everyone
