revenge of the weather fairy...

Good morning everyone I hope your all having a fantastic weekend...it was a bit chilly here yesterday morning but wall to wall sunshine so we decided we would head out to buy some lovely fresh goodies to make pasta for dinner, I said to Phil are you sure its bound to rain if I'm going out...don't be daft says he...so I popped upstairs to do the busted sofa (nope still no haircut yet) and put on a bit of war paint and then I was just putting my coat on and the heavens opened with hail, snow, rain, wind...see I told him didn't I...I swear the weather fairy has a grudge to bear, maybe she doesn't like my umbrella inside out dance lol...we braved the elements and headed out getting back as soon as we could and yes you guessed it...ten minuets after taking off my coat the sun was shining again...I give in lol...we had a lovely dinner anyway except I put just a tad too much garlic in my sauce, it tasted lush but boy was I thirsty all night...anyway onto my card for today, how amazingly stunning is this brand new image from Mo's Digital Pencil, this beauty is called Easter Kiko, there's different versions of her too...pop on over to Mo's Digital Pencil and prepare to fall in love...I coloured her with distress inks and used another of the hidden stash papers I found to paper piece her dress and the bow on the basket...lush coloured papers aren't they, they are from Daisy Bucket Designs Playful Petals collection and is called Katy...I think its just perfect for the beautiful Kiko don't you...I finished my card with some beautiful sheer ribbon and bow and cut some of the flowers from the paper for embellishments ...the gorgeous sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge (my favourite things are Mo's images, paper, ribbon and cutting out) and Craft Your Days Away challenge too...we are having a family lunch today, I love those kind of days...whatever your doing today I hope its a fantastic day for you and watch out for the weather fairy she holds grudges
