car booting...

Good morning everyone, did you all have a good day yesterday...hands up everyone who thought I would buy papers and ribbons yesterday as well as the card I needed...well...er...your right...I bought loads of paper and loads of ribbon, including some lush rich paper that doesn't have a name on oh and some fantastic charms...anyway you will see everything over the next few weeks...my poor Dad sat in the car while I was in the craft shop so I didn't have a lot of time for a good mooch but did have time for a little chat with the lovely April and a little giggle as usual...ok who nicked the heatwave from us, it was warmish here but dull and rainy as usual, oh well we are off to a car boot sale today so the skies will open no doubt, and our gorgeous Daughter is making us lunch...ohhhhh I love it when plans work out don't you...I will tell you if I buy anything at the boot sale, I'm looking for some mismatched cup and saucers for the old dresser I found in the shed, thought they would look nice and country...oooohhh and if anyone sees gingham fabric, not white and red but that creamy colour and dull red if you know what I mean...right enough waffle onto my card for today which is for the Crafts and Me DT, I used this gorgeous stamp I have had for ages and never inked up (I know shocker eh), its by Molly Harrison and is called Roses of Fire, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her wings up...the lush papers are from the K&Co Julianne paper pad and I finished with some lush seam binding and a few cut out roses...the fab sketch is from Cute Card Thursday and I'm also entering it for the A Spoon full of Sugar challenge and Crafty Calendar challenge too...right I'm off get ready for booting, whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Donna said...

Oh I love this paper Mina, gorgeous card. Yep the weather has been yukky, very warm but dull. I'm looking out the window and I'm not sure if its going to rain or not, dry so far so hopefully you didn't get soaked at the car boot sale. E bay is good for material, you might get what you want there. Enjoy your Sunday. hugs Donna x
