baby steps...

Good morning everyone, do you have anything exciting planned for this weekend?...thank you all so so much for all your fantastic Birthday wishes, they brought a huge lump to my throat, your all so nice and thoughtful for your lovely thoughts on my Birthday, it really made it very special...first of all I woke to a dozen red roses and loads of Birthday cards (some had even been touched by the money fairy lol) then my darling Phil took me to lunch then despite the teaming rain we had a little mooch around the shops and he bought me a fab scarf I had my eye on, I hate my neck being cold and always wear a long wrapped round scarf in the winter...our beautiful Daughter and her lovely other half cooked us a meal of Sea Bass, pancetta and sweet potatoes with a garlic, aniseed and olive oil dressed broccoli, it was so delicious, she so takes after her Dad and not me in the kitchen lol...it was a lovely happy family day and I loved it so much...so all in all a brilliant Birthday, all your good wishes must have worked...now for my card for today, how amazing is this sweet little toddler from Mo's Digital Pencil called Walker, she is so fantastic to colour, I used my Distress inks, oh and I had to do a bit more of my favourite paper piecing, I love this technique just in case you hadn't noticed...the lush paper is from K&Co's Classic Bailey kit, I edged the cut pieced with some pearlescent white card and finished with a couple of rub on sentiments, punched butterflies and a stunning white ribbon from Tim Holtz...the fab sketch is from Sketch N Stash challenge and I'm also entering it for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge and Cardmadfairy's digi days challenge...we are off to the shops today and for coffee with my Dad and I'm sure he will need some shopping too...whatever your get up to today have a good one
