a touch of blue and some sneak peek news...

Good morning everyone I hope you had a wonderful weekend, we had a quiet weekend Phil was at a meeting most of Sunday as its the start of the road racing season and he had to sort out which races he will be marshaling for, my lovely Dad came home on Saturday along with a visit from my Sister and her two gorgeous kids, they just get lovelier every time I see them...so besides from that there wasn't much happening...I wanted to thank you all for your fantastic comments for my Graphic45 DT call entry yesterday, I really wasn't sure if I should go for it or not but with a few shoves from a couple of good crafter friends I did and your comments gave my confidence a real boost yesterday, I will catch up with you all tonight I promise...I did loads of commenting last night but it was DT commenting so cant wait to catch up with all your lovely blogs tonight...right now enough waffling Mina get on with it...my card for today is using this stunning digi from Crafts and Me, isn't she stunning...shes from Sara Burrier and is called Lady of the Stars...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and of course glittered her a bit...the beautifully soft blue papers are from DCWV Linen Closet 8x8 paper stack from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I love the colour don't you...I finished my card with some stunning pleated ribbon, satin bow and a few sprinkled punched stars...the sketch I made up as I went along but I'm entering this for the Allsorts Challenge and Crafty Catz Weekly challenge (my B's are Blue, Bling, Bow)

right now some news of sneaky peeks of the lush new Ribonita and friends release from Sugar Nellie...the stamps go on sale on Funkykits on Friday 2nd and of course there's our two day blog hop to show them all off...the details are on the Sugar Nellie blog so hop on over there to find out all about it...I'm off to Town today with my gorgeous Daughter for coffee and shopping, I love those special Mother Daughter days...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
