ooooohhhhh for a set of wings...

Good morning everyone have you anything exciting happening this weekend?, we are just waiting for the predicted cold spell to hit us here so haven't decided what we are up too...we might head out or just stay snuggled in the warm, it all depends on how cold it gets...I went for put the world to rights coffee with my lovely Dad yesterday, I missed our chats about world affairs and whats needed to sort them out...I don't know what it is but the rain here seems to wait for me to step out of the house...it was a lovely day all day yesterday until I set foot out then the heavens opened and the wind picked up to the extent it blew my umbrella inside out twice, its hard enough when your on your own doing the 'turn the upside down brolly right side in' dance but when your trying to hold it over your Dads head too its worse and he kept looking at me with the 'what you doing' expression on his face lol...but we had coffee, cake and loads of chatting, I love those afternoons with my Dad they are so precious...hes back to my Sisters today so I wont see him again for another week I think...right now onto my card for today, this amazing image is another freebie from Victoria Case on Facebook....oooohhhhh don't you just love a freebie...I coloured this stunning angel with distress inks and used some of the Basicgrey Cappella 6x6 paper pad for her, the softness suits her I think dont you, those wings are amazing...because the paper is so beautiful I didn't add a lot to my card except a lush cream satin ribbon and bow and a couple of the stunning pins that Lee (Crafty Loops) makes, she sent me these as a gift for doing her a favour...thanks Lee they are so gorgeous...the fab sketch is from CLP challenge and I'm also entering it for the Phindy's Place challenge and Totally Papercrafts challenge too...well fingers crossed deep winter temperatures don't set in today and we will be heading out somewhere...whatever your up to today stay warm and have fun
