a little bit of Candy Pip...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and getting some sun wherever you are, we are finally having some and it even hit 25degrees here yesterday, I know what a shock eh...long may it last...my wonderful Dad looks so well and happy and we had a giggle, coffee and chatted away with people we met, its lovely seeing people smile all because the sun is shining, then last night about 7.30 I got a call from him, his TV has broken down and can I fix it...so of I trots in my pj's to my Dads and fixed it, it wasn't the TV the remote had been dropped and the infrared light had moved and was hidden so it wasn't getting through to the tv, I told him in the future I'm charging a £50 call out fee for after 6pm house calls lol..he says thank goodness we have one person in the family who can cope with technology lol...my card for today is for our new challenge at Colour Create and this week is our wonderful Di's turn to choose and she chose Aqua, light Pink and Cream with an added option of Ribbon...now come on when don't I use ribbon on a card eh lol...I chose to use this stunning new Candy Pip stamp from the new release at Sugar Nellie, isn't she gorgeous, I'm just sorry I didn't get a chance to colour her better as my mojo is in recession at the mo, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her dress...I will have to give her another try I think...the papers I used are from my scrap box and I used a lush sentiment ribbon, satin ribbon and gingham ribbon...I finished with a few aqua coloured pearls to finish...the fabulous sketch is from the brand new Pink (Ink) Sketch challenge, although I had to move things around a bit so hope it still fits and I'm also entering this for the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge...I'm off to the supermarket with my Dad today and lets hope the sun shines so there's no chance of supermarket rage...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one

Such a sweetie of a card Mina! The coloring looks very good to me! The ribbon with the sentiment stamp on it looks great!
At this moment, it's raining cats and dogs, so to speak, it's really "bucketing" down. Perfect weather to sit at my craft table and create! I hope you're out of your pyama's by now and crafting!
