a smouldering look and some velvet...

Good morning everyone do you have anything exciting planned for today, we are off to the opticians with my lovely Dad this afternoon and out to lunch with my gorgeous Phil and you never know maybe even a little trip to the craft shop as I need linen card to make my blanks and its a perfect excuse to have a mooch isn't it...now even if I say so myself my soup was extra lush last night and everyone had two large bowls of it and of course our Daughter had to take some home too just in case shes gets peckish, I wonder where she puts it as shes only a little slip of a thing shes so slim (she obviously takes after her Dad not me lol)...oh I took some photos of the clock and mirror I bought and will show you them tomorrow...right my card for today is a combination I think works really well together...this gorgeously handsome broody figure is Dare from Mo's Digital Pencil, I coloured him with distress inks and even managed the dreaded red for his vest too, I'm loving these new images from Mo don't you...I teamed him up with these amazing papers from another Kaisercraft paper pad I bought from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, this one is called Velvet Ensemble, its hard to see but the red brocade background really is flocked velvet and the deep red is glazed and raised, the sentiment is from the same pad...this is a stunning paper pad and I think it will be wonderful for Christmas too don't you...the fab sketch is from Tuesday Morning sketches...whatever your up to today I hope you have a brilliant one and that the suns shines on you

Love the card Mina and that paper looks like fabulous flocked wall paper! Talking of wallpaper I saw your piccies of the dining room the other day and I have to say it looks stunning!! And I love the green bargain paper you picked up - I've just done a feature wall in my lounge with something very similar and it looks great!
Thanks also for picking me in the Top Three at Crafts and Me the other day ;o)
