more of the red stuff...

Good morning everyone...we didn't go out yesterday as it was freezing cold, frosty and my poor little Phil is not well bless him...although it wont be bless him if I catch it lol...instead we sat in muffled up, heating on full, eating comfort food (sticky toffee pudding and cream yum yum) while Phil's pile of tissues grew higher, I draw the line at throwing them away for him...yucky...oh I forgot to tell you what happened on Saturday while we were walking through town I kept getting a glimpse of something wispy and floaty and they kept catching the light but I ignored it because I thought my eyes were acting up, while we were having lunch I mentioned it to Phil and after lunch he said come here while I show you this...the wispy things were cobwebs and shop windows and walls were covered in teeny tiny little spiders or as Phil called them spiderlings (I think he made that up or hes an extra in Harry Potter lol) because the sun was so bright and warm all the teeny spiders from the trees had hatched and the weight of them brings the webs down so they can spread out, I kept getting bits in my face and hair too....uuuuurrrrgggghhhhh ...if I find out hes winding me up I'm going to slap him lol...anyway onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge and this month the challenge is our lovely Jane's choice to use buttons and bows, I used this stunning Kenny K image called Super Mom and yes I used the paper piecing card for the red again, I'm so glad I thought to do that although I did manage the red lippy...the lush papers are from Craft Creations and are an amazing 35p for 12x12 sheets, I bought these from the Kings Hall craft fair...I finished with some lush white seam binding, red satin 15mm ribbon and a few buttons from the brights button pack they are all from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, the sentiment I made up and printed from my computer...the lush sketch is from the Fetch A Sketch challenge and I'm also entering it into the Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge and the Simon Says Stamp challenge too...I cant wait to see what you come up with this month as all your entries were amazing last month, when you have time don't forget to pop on over to the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge...well Im off out with my lovely Dad today for a little mooch, whatever your up to today watch out for the spiderlings lol
