all good plans...

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a fantastic weekend...as you can guess from the title things didn't quite go to plan yesterday, we went to collect my lovely Dad and he was hacking and coughing, I don't know if I have mentioned it but he has COPD so a cough like that usually means a chest infection at best...so we spent a load of the afternoon ringing Doctors and getting prescriptions then hunting down a chemist to get it filled, so lunch in the Town just didn't happen but the important thing is he is sorted and can still go for his appointment on Tuesday...so my wonderful Phil has taken him to Belfast very early this morning and he will be away for most of the week I think as my other Sister from England is there visiting too...I had a lovely few hours hopping around your blogs last night and plan on doing loads more tonight too...I have been a shockingly bad blogger lately but the days just seem to fly past...I still cant believe its March already it only seems five minuets since Christmas doesn't it...anyway onto my card for today which is for our new challenge at The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge and this month its my choice of theme and I chose Spring Colours...I love the soft gentle colours of Spring don't you and they always make a card look so fresh, so dig out all those lush coloured spring papers and I cant wait to see what you all come up with...I used this amazing new release digi from Crafts and Me, shes called Cali Girl and I coloured her with distress inks...the fantastic papers are one of my latest buys from Bunny Zoe's Crafts, they are from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline - Howdy Doody 6x6 Pad, how lush are they...the ribbon is of course from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and is Sheer Elegance 25mm - Pink, isn't it so soft and beautiful, I also used some Leaf Trim - Olive Green but cut the leaves out and used them with some beautiful roses to finish the sketch is from The Sweet Stop and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge and Cardmadfairys digi challenge...I'm off out to Town on my own today as I didn't get a chance to do the shopping I needed yesterday and you never know might even get a bit of crafting done this afternoon too...whatever your up to today I hope it goes to plan and if you have time pop on over to The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop challenge blog to have a lot at the lush work from the rest of the team

Bernie said...

Must say with your history I held my breath when I saw all the lovely buttons on your previous card. :) This card is stunning! Gorgeous image superbly colored. The papers, ribbon and flowers are to die for.
So happy your Dear Dad wont have to wait so long for his surgery. My DH has COPD, emphysema and asthma. Thanks to his meds he got cataracts too and the surgeries done last year. Poor guy isn’t doing well. ATM we are waiting on CAT scan and a host of other test results to see if he can be made more comfortable. Praying your Dad will soon be feeling well.
Blessings Bernie
