arent suprises wonderful...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a fabulous weekend?...well did you all like my candy?...its a goodie isn't it, I was quite chuffed with it even if I say so myself...well on Saturday my wonderful Phil asked where I fancied going, I shrugged and said anywhere you want, so we got in the car and he drove to a wonderful stately gardens near to where we live and pulled into the car park, I'm sitting there thinking...ok so what now???...he got out and into the boot and brought out a wonderful picnic with tapas and dessert and drinks and he even brought forks, knives and napkins, he must have got up really early to prepare it as I was up at 9.30 and with him all night before...we had a wonderful meal and then walked around the gardens and grounds then afternoon tea in the gardens, it was wonderful...now I love my Phil to bits but he isn't romantic or spontaneous at all and never has been, which I didn't mind as you know when you have a good un don't you so that meant so so much to me than just an afternoon out...how lucky am I...we then went into town and found a shop that does house clearances and had a mooch around, I found a fab dressing table and a sorta sideboard thingy, all mucky and needs work but at £40 for the two now you cant say no can you lol, then we met up with our Daughter and her other half and arranged to go shopping on Sunday...so you could say we had a fantastic weekend I think...right that's quite enough waffling so onto my card which is for the TeddyBo Challenge which is to make a shaped card, I used this amazing Teddybea called Daisy Chain isn't she so pretty, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these amazing papers from the 6x6 Bo Bunny paper pad called Gabrielle from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, I even cut the butterflies from the same pad...aren't they just lush papers, the sentiment I think is from Whiff of Joy...I'm also entering this into the Creative Inspirations Cute Bears challenge and the Crafty Calendar Things with Wings monthly challenge too...right I have taken up enough of your time so I wish you all a wonderful day and don't forget if you haven't entered my candy yet its just below this

p.s. in case your wondering how the top butterfly is floating above Bea's head I stuck it onto a little strip of acetate and stuck it behind the image
