nothing says summer like flowers and fairies...

Good morning everyone, how are you all well and happy I hope...oh I forgot to tell you all yesterday that I still haven't given up the hope of using Aqua and green on one of the bedrooms so watch this space, I'm off out for a shopping trip and coffee with my wonderful Dad today and we hopefully be catching up as he was away when I was except he was with my Sister in Belfast and went travelling about in her caravan, it sounds like he had fun but hes exhausted the poor fella so he will hopefully be recovered enough for a 'put the world to rights' coffee session today...isn't it weird how your Parents kinda reverse roles when they get in their 70's and 80's you start to worry about that so much, almost like you become the parent...but sssshhhhh don't tell him I told you that lol...right onto my card for today which is for the digi team's new challenge at Crafts and Me challenge, this time our host is the fab Vix and she chose the theme of Summer, now nothing says summer like some beautiful flowers and even better when they are teamed up with a beautiful fairy like Button, shes one of the new digis from Crafts and Me, I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these lush K&Co papers, gorgeous colours aren't they, I finished by adding some of the flowers cut from the paper, ribbon and a friend tag...when you have time pop on over to the Crafts and Me challenge and see what the rest of the team came up with, and check out our newest members Jane and Rose's lush work...the sketch I used is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering this for the Totally Gorjuss Summertime challenge and the Allsorts Free and Easy July challenge too....speak to you all tomorrow and I will report back if my Dad has recovered from his time away
