a little bit of Hawaii...

Good morning everyone, yes its virtual me again...I remembered to pack my camera so will have piccies to show you when I get back but when you see them please remember its a work in progress and the work we are doing now is just the bare bones...they will be loads of titivating to do before they are finished...I'm hoping to push Phil into doing some of the garden while I'm down as I think its really good for him, he has a very stressful job and seems to find it really hard to switch off when he gets home so gardening (something he loves but hasnt been able to do for the last few years) is something that will help him do that...we miss each other really badly when we are apart and it doesn't matter how many years we do it still feel the same, so we try to make the most of every min we do have together...right enough slushy stuff onto today's card which is for Bunny Zoe's crafts DT, how sweet and pretty is this lovely CC Designs Swiss Pixie Hawaiian Birgitta with her little flower in her hair, I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her sweet little shorts with some of these lush Bo Bunny paper pad Gabrielle papers...I finished my card with some pretty peach ribbon and one of the incredibly gorgeous
new Prima Corine-style 54885...these are so so lush and rich looking aren't they...the lush sketch is from the Paper and Such Designs challenge...whatever your up to today have a good one
