tisnt the season yet...but its getting there...

Good morning everyone are you all enjoying this wonderful warm weather, when we were coming home from dinner out last night it was 20degrees would you believe, we hardly ever reached that during the day in our summer never mind at night lol...dinner was lush, I had the best piece of salmon I have had in ages and Phil ate far too much as always and moaned about it afterwards...as usual...it was a lovely family night...he was like a cat on bricks yesterday, couldn't keep still and kept sitting on the edge of the sofa with his leg jiggling because he couldn't sit still...do you get the feeling hes feeling better...if he doesn't sit still I will be pushing him back to work lol, told you he would drive me nuts when he was feeling better...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar and StAnglar challenge, this week is a fabulous sketch by our lovely sweet Jane...its a brilliant sketch...I used this gorgeously cute Tilda from the Magnolia Cozy Family Collection, shes called Tilda with Laced Flag and I coloured her with distress ink and paper pieced her flag, I so want a pair of red boots like hers don't you, shes from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nikki has an amazing 20% off Magnolia stamps too, so hop on over to grab a bargain or three...I teamed her up with my favourite paper pad atm which is this lush new Fancy Pants 6x6 paper pad Saint Nick, all the paper (even Tilda's flag) and the tag is from this lush pad...the sentiment stamped on the tag is from the Essential Sentiments range these are little mini clear stamp sets from Kaisercraft and at only £2.25 they are so so handy, this is from the Christmas set, I finished with some gorgeous ribbon and punched snowflakes...I'm entering this for the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge...I feel the need to do some crafting today so will be colouring this morning I think...whatever your up to today have a fantastic day and enjoy the weather

I love the colours and I just adore Tilda. It is so hot here in what is usually thought of as Darkest Norfolk but, like you, I really must get a move on with Christmas cards. Good luck with the challenges.

Heehee, Phil does exactly the same as Mark....moans all night after eating too much. But what makes it worse, he goes about the house grabbing his tummy and asking me "Am I getting fat?".....he's worse than a teenage girl!! Love your card Mina, its really pretty. So much for the beautiful weather eh? We're suffering the rain now!! Lee x
