the cherry on the top...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and enjoying a little bit of the warmer weather we are having, there's no sun...yet...but its definitely getting warmer, oh and how nuts is it that there is going to be a hose pipe ban in some areas of England, I hope it wont effect you...I cant believe there's anyone in Britain has that little rain in the winter...crazy...my lovely Daughter was off work yesterday on a days holiday so we took my Dad out for lunch and a little bit of a mooch...I was relieved that he didn't have to sit in on his own, no one should have to do that on their Birthday, I gave him all your Birthday wishes last night and he is flabbergasted that all these people who don't know can be kind enough to send him Birthday wishes...onto my card for today, we are having a Ribonita feature week at Sugar Nellie, I love these new stamps don't you and this little bit of gorgeousness is called Lolitta I coloured this little stunner with distress inks and boy did I have fun colouring all that lush hair...I teamed her up with this fabulous Graphic45 paper, I know it G45 but it didn't have a name edge on but I think its called Cherry stripe or something like that...I finished my card with some ribbons, a huge amount of button, I counted them and they all made it to the card you will be pleased to know lol, and a sentiment...the fab sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Crafty Creations challenge and Totally Gorjuss challenge too...I'm having one of those super crafting days today, you know the ones where you craft and colour to your hearts content...oh and btw I forgot I got an email a couple of days back asking me which glue I used for attaching buttons, I use a Zig glue pen, the blue ones that dry clear, brilliant for loads of things, hope that helps...I hope you all have a wonderful day and no getting those hose pipes out now lol

Wow Mina...I really like this image. You have such a way with colours, she is gorgeous with that beautiful backdrop! Thanks for the zig glue tip...I've been using a hot glue gun because I didn't know what else to use that was strong enough. Ta.
