a glittery bike ride...

Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend...I was very naughty and spent loads of money on goodies from the wonderful shopping world of the internet last week and they all arrived late last week so I have had fantastic fun playing with them all weekend so much to use and not enough time...but I have my internet head on this week as I do some serious blog hopping to catch up with all your lush work, I missed my hopping this weekend...we spent yesterday afternoon going around the shops looking at all the glittery gorgeous Christmas decorations and decided we are going to have a new tree and decs to go on it, but we are going to go very traditional and green and red with apples and gingham and oooooohhhhhh so much yumminess, and yes it was Phil's idea and no I didn't have to drag him round in fact he dragged me into a couple of shops to look...can you guess we love Christmas lol...anyway onto my card for today which is using this beautiful little sweetie Whimsy Wee Rose's bike ride, I love this perfect stamp and its such a clear crisp one too, perfect to colour...I used distress inks and glittered all those stunning roses...the paper is another 12x12 paper from the new Magnolia Sweet Christmas collection this one is called Vintage Swirl and it just goes to show they aren't just for Christmas, this is a beautiful soft colour too...Nikki has a 10% of everything special offer on at Bunny Zoe's Crafts until midnight tonight so you could pick them up at a bargain price, I finished with a pale green ribbon and bow and some swirls of pearls with teeny tiny roses on from Prima...the fab sketch is from Inkspirations challenge and I'm entering this for the Dutch Dare challenge and Simon says stamp challenge too...we are off out today as Phil is rarely off work so we want to make the best of it...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
