I gave myself a slap...

Good morning everyone how you doing?...well I gave myself a good shake and a little slap and managed to make 5 cards yesterday...wwwooohhhooo about time to I hear myself say...oh no I'm talking to myself now...men in white coats here I come...my wonderful Dad flies back to England today, I hope he had a fantastic time although knowing my Sister I would bet that he did...well we decided even though it is so much work and out in the wiles of wannie (middle of nowhere lol) we are going to take the farmhouse, but I have said only on the condition Phil gets broadband installed as I want to be able to go down more often and don't want to do without my hopping...must admit I'm quite excited at the prospect of doing the farmhouse out, but the 'garden' scares the life out of me, well I say garden I mean a dirt patch with hills in a field so haven't a clue what to do with that...although a clear patch to put my swing seat, a few herb and flower pots and table and chairs in and I'm sorted...my card for today is for the Crafts and Me Digi Teams new challenge which this week Punch it out, I used the stunning new Sara Burrier digi called Twilight Lily Fae beautiful isn't she...I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her up a bit...I'm sorry but I haven't a clue what make these papers are but they were 6x6 so must be from a paper pad, my punching is the teeny flowers and leaves which I scattered about and added pearl centres to them, I finished with some lush velvet ribbon...the sketch is from Sketch N Stash and I'm also entering this for the Pear Tree Designs Sparkle challenge too...when you have time pop on over to the Crafts & Me challenge to see what our amazing team came up with, I'm off to town today for a little mooch and treat myself to lunch whatever your up to today have a brilliant one

The farmhouse sounds wonderful! I know you are up to the challenge! You will have to post pictures as you go along. Your card is amazing as always. I have to say I am facinated by the way you color hair. I wish you would do a video for us who are "hair" challenged!

Congratulations on the Farm House. I do believe you should do an on-line journal with daily photos of your progress on the renovations. Nosey people like me would love to watch your progress.

This fairy card is so magical with just the perfect amount of glitter. So soft.
