dont you just love grey and pink...

Good morning everyone well are you all snowed in and frosty enough...we haven't had any so far and fingers crossed we don't get any, you can keep it thanks...I so envy you lovely people who live in sunnier climates, I'm just waiting for an invite to holiday with one of you lol...I think we could all do with some sun...my Dad is fine and it was lovely to see him again, he seems quite upbeat but then he hasn't got used to not driving yet, we did a lot of ringing round Doctors and hospitals to see if we could get it done privately but it is horrendously expensive and I know he is so worth it but we are all too stretched this close after Christmas, but we still haven't given up hope of getting it done faster, thank you all so so much for all the positive things and advice you gave yesterday it is helping so much...right now onto my card for today which is the girl version of the one I made on Friday, this gorgeous little girl is called With Love and is of course from Mo's Digital Pencil, only Mo could draw that wonderful face...I coloured her with distress inks and I'm so sorry but I have no idea what make these lush papers are but they are gorgeous aren't they, I paper pieced her heart and paper like on the boy version and cut out the edge of the paper for the letter bar at the bottom, the lush flower is cut from the bottom edge of the paper too, I finished with a ribbon and a satin bow...the fab sketch is from Papertake Weekly challenge and I'm also entering it for the Ribbon Carousel challenge and Joanna Sheen challenge too...btw did you see that Graphic45 are having a DT call, ooooohhhhhhh how I would love to be part of that team but I don't think I would be what they are looking for, but its a thought isn't it...we are having a family Sunday lunch today, lush food, good company and Phil will go pick up my Dad too...whatever your up to today have a fantastic one and if its very snowy be careful and stay safe
