clean and simple...

Good morning everyone did you all have a fantastic weekend, I hope so...we had a quiet weekend topped off with our lush Sunday lunch, my lovely Dad is away for a few days visiting my youngest Sister in Belfast which is a fantastic sign that's hes travelling again isn't it, so there was just Phil, our Daughter and her other half, yes I have decided to call him her other half lol...while Phil prepped the lunch I made this card, now I hardly ever make clean and simple cards but this was so fast to make and I even used some of my usual lush ribbon so I might just make more as I really enjoyed just colouring and making this as simple as I could...well its clean and simple for me anyway...the stunning little baby is off course from The Saturated canary and is called Baby Cakes, A Ragamuffin...isn't she a cutie look at those eyes, I of course used my usual distress inks for her and just added a lush pink ribbon and bow, I bought this ribbon from Dunhelm Mill, they sell them on rolls in the curtain section and have the lushest colours, cant remember how much I paid but the roll I think was about £2 something...I finished with a couple of these fabulous pink crown pins from the Ribbon Girl...Im entering this for the Saturated Canary clean and simple challenge and the DYSU Pink challenge too...did you notice last week my crafty blogs banner dissapeared and I couldnt get the code to work whatever I did, well I finally got it loaded and in a week I had dropped from 40 something to 520, bloody hell...well its back and now and very very slowly creeping up its like some kind of gaming machine, where will it stop nobody knows lol...oh and did you all join in the new Bunny Zoe's Crafts candy below, you never know you might win you know, and I will have some Birthday candy when that finished so keep an eye out for that too...I'm having a crafting catch up day today and hope to do loads of hopping too...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one
