a reminder and just a little bit of colour...

Good morning everyone what are you all up to today? anything exciting...well my gorgeous Phil is off marshaling again so I will have to make my own entertainment...did I tell you that Phil bought himself a tent so he could stay overnight when hes at the racing, well I would go with him but I'm built for comfort and unless the tent has a real bed, en suite and room service I don't think its for me...I will just have to drag my poor Dad out today instead, I need a trip to my local craft shop Crafter's and Co, I haven't been for ages and they sell the fab card I use for my blanks so I feel the urge to visit, oh and of course a few papers might just fall into my basket too of course lol...my card for today is for the Sugar Nellie DT using this gorgeous little A Cherry on the Top Manga stamp, isn't he so cute in his chefs outfit, I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with this amazingly colourful My Mind's Eye paper, its double sided and from the Bloom and Grow range called Bijou Birds Green, the pink is the reverse, I added a ribbon, loads and loads of colourful buttons and a sentiment to finish...the fabulous sketch is from Simon Says Stamp challenge...I wanted to remind you all that my candy closes today so this is your last chance to join in, if you haven't already of course...I will report back as to what lush papers I bought and whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

I agree with you. There is something very wrong about choosing to sleep on the ground, with out AC and running water.
Your card is wonderful. I really like the pink. Most would have chosen the typical red and black for this image. I just love this.
