when life gives you lemons...

Good morning everyone and Happy Saturday, its my wonderful Phil's birthday today, I cant tell you what I bought him as it hasn't arrived in time (even though it has been paid for and ordered for two weeks and I was promised it would be here on time) and he reads my blog so ssssssshhhhhhhhh but I will show you his saucy card I made for him in a couple of days...I don't really have anything planned at all for today, Phil just likes his weekends at home to be his weekends at home, does that make any sense at all...we were going to have a barbecue but it has been tiddling down for 24 hours and the weather forecast says it isnt going to improve so we will just have to go with the flow I guess...are you up to anything exciting this weekend...my card for today is for the Mo's Digital Pencil DT, I used the stunningly gorgeous Lemons isn't she a real sweetie...I coloured her with distress inks and wanted to have a go at dark brown hair but Im afraid I made a bit of a hash of it, you can tell why I haven't tried dark brown hair before cant you lol...a lot more practice I think...the amazing papers are from the new Basicgrey 6x6 paper pad Sweet Threads, I love this pad, the wooden flowers are from the Wooden Ornaments Flower Animal 1 pack... the pad and ornaments are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with some lush green/yellow satin ribbon and a wooden sentiment I found in my stash, I have a feeling I bought this at the NEC but I'm not 100% sure but its cute isn't it...the fab sketch is from Sunday Sketch and Stamp challenge I'm also entering this for the Fussy and Fancy Summer challenge and Cute Card Thursday Circle challenge...whatever your up to today I hope it is sunny and bright for you and you have a great one

This is gorgeous - I think her hair looks great - much better than I ever manage to colour hair - I really struggle with hair!
I love the papers, the wooden flowers and that sentiment.
Have a lovely weekend, whatever you decide to do - just about to take my husband to cricket even though its been pelting down with rain for much of the morning!
Love, Andrea xx
