bestest friends are forever...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend...I hope you all did something lovely and had fun...we had a quiet weekend, we bought some lamp shades that when I took out of the box turned out to be lime green so they are heading back to the shop very quickly lol...then we headed to Marks and Spencer's and bought some yummy stuff, their food is always so lush and moreish isn't it, then home to watch Phil snoozing and catch up with challenge commenting, I never seem to catch up with commenting I must learn to type faster your know...ooohhhh and on Saturday we bought a new vaccum which Phil was fascinated with (now that's rare as I'm the gadget person not him) because its suction would strip wallpaper off and you want to see what came out of our hall carpet...shocking...so that was a result that Phil did all the hoovering while saying have you seen how much muck this is getting out of the carpets and I tried to watch Dr Who...right now onto my card for today which is for the Bunny Zoe's Crafts DT using this fantastic little sweetie and her bestest friend from Whimsy Stamps called Whimsy Valerie and Sitting Pretty, isn't she a cutie, I coloured them with distress inks and used more of the lush Authentique Blissful 6x6 paper pad, I used more flower fantasy wooden ornaments but this time I stained them with distress inks, they take colour really well and the colour stays true...the sentiment is from the Kaisercraft mini clear sentiment stamp set Friends (these sets are brilliant value, really cheap and one for every occasion)...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering this for the City Crafter Best of Friends challenge and Totally Gorjuss As you like it challenge too...right I'm off to change my shades today, cant be having lime green as I would need sunglasses indoors...have a wonderful day everyone

p.s. I have a sneaky peek for your tomorrow...hint hint it might be very sweet and sugary

Had to laugh at the picture that came into my head of Phil hoovering while you lounged on the sofa watching the good Dr! I'm not sure hubby has ever run the vacuum in this household!
