yo ho ho and a bottle of lemonade...


Good morning everyone, did you all have a wonderful weekend...there's still no sun here and I'm beginning to think its gone for good from here...well at least the car boot sale stayed dry but thick heavy clouds and really dark, there wasn't many goodies to be had but I found two cornish ware type red and cream striped flower pots a large one and a smaller one for an amazing 50p each which I'm going to use as fat vases for flowers, I hadn't the heart to haggle at that price...oh and my Dad bought some duck eggs for his breakfast and got chatted up by a very pretty older lady while he was having his coffee lol...by the way did you all check out the candy winners below?...right onto my card for today and I totally love this amazing little Nellie Snellen Hands up image isnt she so cute with her pirate hat and her little pirate cat, I coloured them with distress inks and tried to giver her a darker look but I'm not sure it worked, I cut them out and raised them above each other...the amazing papers are from the BoBunny Vicki B 6x6 paper pad, amazing colours in this pad, they are mixed with chocolate and look fab together, the paper pad and stamp cutie are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a sentiment from my stash...isn't this sketch lush but I cant remember where I got it from but I'm entering this for the Just Us Girls challenge, CES challenge and The Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Challenge too...I have loads of DT work to catch up on today so a locked in my craftroom day I think...whatever your up to today have a good one everyone

It has been so hot here, I am longing for fall - sticky and humid is only nice when you are in the pool or ocean or crafting in the air conditioned house. Ha Ha

Love the yellow pirate. I am working on two pirates myself. Yours is so soft and sweet.

Raining heavily here with a bit of thunder. Yesterday was a heatwave. Go figure.

Another super-dupe card Mina... lovin that sentiment particularly!
Glad you got a couple of bargains at the car boot - I'm working in the AGE UK shop at the moment, and we get lots of lovely bric-a-brac bits of china in there I'm sure you'd love! Shame about the Irish Sea being in the way of me bringing them to you... LOL
