what a brilliant way for a present to arrive - The Sweet Stop challenge sss104

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a brilliant weekend...we had a yummy Sunday lunch yesterday and while my fab Phil was cooking it, I made a few cards, now that's what I call sharing the load lol...the weather was lovely yesterday but I live at the top of a very long steep hill and it doesn't matter how well the sun shines there's always a chilly wind so it feels colder here than other places around...my Daughter is always saying that...I'm so nervous for this morning as she starts her new job, I know shes brilliant at her job and has such a lovely personality she gets on well with everyone, but it doesn't me having that first day worry I used to get when she was small...lets face it even if she is 26 shes still my little girl isn't she...right my card for today which is using the fab sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge, this cute little tiger flying around giving out gifts is one of the stamps I won from the Whimsy stamps blog hop its called Tippy by the Tail you can also get this cutie from Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts, heres the link... I don't usually enjoy colouring animals but who could resist that tiger, I coloured it with distress inks and glittered the balloons and package...the lush papers are from the Pink Paislee Queen Bea paper pad I bought ages and ages ago, I finished my card with some fab black velvet ribbon and a stamped sentiment, haven't a clue what I'm up to today, I know there's things I should be doing but probably wont...whatever your up to have a brilliant day
