no clean up on aisle 4...

Good morning everyone are you all well and happy?...you will pleased to know I didn't show myself up in the supermarket and there was no need for clean up on aisle 4 lol...my poor Dad is devastated...why?...because his car is fixed and he has to give back the loaner he loved, bless him, I feel a change of car coming on...I'm still feeling a bit iffy and my temperature is still up and down I even went to bed at 10.30 last night which is unknown for me as I have always been a night owl and do all my surfing then...from what I have heard though its going round but doesn't last long...well I hope not as I'm supposed to be going down to the farmhouse on Sunday for 5 days, I have put off the work that needs done too long and I want to get a real tree for Phil to add a bit of festive spirit to it and it surrounded by holly bushes so I thought I might make a couple of sprays and wreaths, I will take photos and some of the countryside now I have my new camera, I'm looking forward to a play with it, I have been trying to persuade my Dad to come down too but he hates long journeys in the car and as its a 2-3 hour drive it is long for him...right now onto my card for today which is for the new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge, this time its our wonderful Donalda's turn to host and she chose Lots of Sparkle, I know its hard to see but there really is lots of sparkle on my card even her little bows and socks have sparkle on them...I used this stunning Holly Tilda from the new Sweet Christmas Magnolia release, I love this Tilda shes so sweet and she is 10% off atm too...I coloured her with distress inks except for her white hair which was shaded with a Grey watercolour pen from Marvy and I teamed her up with these Sweet Christmas Magnolia papers these are the Red and Green 6x6 Flurry papers which are also on offer, I finished with some fabulous sheer wired ribbon and this stunning Blossom resin flower from Kaisercraft, these sets are so beautiful and there's roses in the pack too...everything I used is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...the lush sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering it for the Saturday Challenge too...I really need to catch up with some DT work and stuff to post while I'm away next week today so need a craft room day I think...whatever your up to have a fantastic one
