a bit of gold on a soggy day...

Good morning everyone...ok which one of you turned the tap on because you left it on and we have more than enough water now so whoever it was could you turn it off please, it has been pouring down and doesn't seem to want to stop...my poor Daughter had a 30 minuet detour going to work because of flooding and of course the same back...I didn't get my snuggle day yesterday, my gorgeous Nephew, the one who was supposed to come here Saturday came yesterday so we went out and then to dinner with my lovely Dad last night so I didn't get home until after 9 last night...I know I'm a dirty old stop out lol...I ate far too much as they have the lushest Caramel apple crumble with custard and it is so so yummy so of course I had to have some and it was worth it...right now onto my card for today which is using this poor little long neglected Home Grown Manga stamp called Goldilocks from Funky Kits...I love her hair don't you so it had to be gold didn't it...I coloured her with distress inks and just a little bit of glitter, I so want a pair of glittery shoes can you tell lol...they remind me of a party outfit my Mum bought me when I was little, it was a beautiful cream dress with loads of layers under the skirt for it to stand out and a pair of silver glittery shoes, I felt like a real Princess in it...the lush paper is from Fancy Pants All Fall range and is called Recess...I perched her on top of this fab chipboard sentiment I found in one of my stash boxes and added loads of blue buttons to bring the blue out of the paper...the fab sketch is from The Sweet Stop and I'm also entering this for the Totally Paper Crafts Layers challenge too...I am having my snuggle day today come rain or shine, ooohhhh what movie will I watch...have a wonderful day whatever your up to

Every girl should have a pair of glittery shoes. I had a pair during my Prom days, but that was so long ago. Don't know where I would wear them now. She has a beautiful head of hair too. Stay dry. I promise I did not turn on your rain.
